This goes for non-hockey players too. The best way to get the most bang for your training buck is to find a highly motivated partner and push each other.
You’ll be surprised how quickly you start to make progress when you’re paired up with a supportive AND competitive training partner.
Nothing creates on-ice success and friendship like a 150-Yard Shuttle Run.
