Kevin Neeld — Hockey Training, Sports Performance, & Sports Science

Movie Appreciation Series: 1

I have two weeks to finish up my research on motor unit synchronization and get ready to present it.  Free time is at an all time low, which means it’s a perfect time for Movie Appreciation Week.  It may not be what you think.  Each video will have a theme that somehow relates to performance training or ice hockey.  Also, it’s playoff hockey time; you should all be growing out your playoff beards…no exceptions.

Day 1:
Technique…Every couple days I’ll come back to my apartment to the faint sound of heavy metal or someone yelling in Russian.   My friend Mike spends about half of his time reading about neuroendocrinology, and the other half watching squat videos on youtube.  Regardless of his social problems, this video is impressive.  If only we all had this hip mobility.
