Check out what you missed this week over at Hockey Strength and Conditioning!
Article: Leadership Lessons from the NHL from me
A recap of the most important lessons I learned from my 1st NHL training camp. From talking to Coach Potenza, this is stuff that we agree all coaches AND players should know.
Article: How Should I Strength Train Leading Up to Training Camp? from Mike Potenza
A great description of the off-ice training protocols Coach Potenza uses with the San Jose Sharks to prepare them for training camp.
Video: 10-Rep Cluster Bench Press from Sean Skahan
Clusters are a great way to build strength. Cool video from Coach Skahan.
Video: Rear Foot Elevated Jump from Michael Boyle
A single-leg plyo exercise from Coach Boyle. This would be a great one to use in conjunction with a back leg raised split squat if you’re into pairing strength and power exercises.
Video: Goblet Rear Foot Elevated Split Squat from Ben Bruno
