As part of the launch for Ultimate Hockey Training, I recorded a few videos that go into detail about specific components of off-ice training programs, as well as how to design a comprehensive hockey training program.
This week I’ll be making these videos available to the public for the first time. A couple days ago, I released the video outlining my Transitional Speed Training System for hockey players. If you missed it, you can check it out here: Transitional Speed Training for Hockey
In addition to speed training for hockey, another popular training topic is hockey conditioning. In general, conditioning enthusiasts tend to fall on one side of the continuous aerobic training – interval anaerobic training continuum. Unfortunately, both of these extremes miss out on a HUGE component of hockey conditioning, one that is largely overlooked in most programs. Today’s video discusses off-ice hockey conditioning, and presents a training progression for the most overlooked quality that hockey players need to be successful on the ice!
Please take a few minutes to watch the video below and post your comments. If you picked up a couple good hockey conditioning ideas, please forward it along to all the players, parents, and coaches you know that would benefit from watching it also. Thanks!
P.S. If you’re looking for a comprehensive hockey training program, check out my book Ultimate Hockey Training!
