Skating Speed & Rotational Power Development

It’s been almost 10 months since I last sent out a newsletter. At the end of last Summer, I was fortunate to be offered a new position as the Head Performance Coach with the Boston Bruins.

Between moving our family across the country and getting acclimated to a new position/organization, I haven’t had as much time as I’d like for, well, just about anything else!

That said, after several years of work (and thanks to the tireless efforts of my co-author Travis Pollen), I’m extremely excited to announce that I’ll be releasing a new book “Speed Training for Hockey” at the end of this week.

I’ll have more details about the book, including a special announcement for newsletter subscribers, on Saturday.

In anticipation of the release, I’ll be sharing a few articles highlighting important elements of effective speed training programs throughout the week.

To kick things off, I want to share an interview I did with SimpliFaster a few months back. In the interview, we discussed:

  • Key strength and functional qualities that make players fast on the ice
  • Differences between off- and on-ice speed
  • How to approach “specificity” of skating patterns through off-ice training
  • The greatest training need of ice hockey players
  • How movement screens should REALLY be used to impact performance
  • Rotational power training for hockey
