Last November I released my new book Ultimate Hockey Training, which reveals my year-round off-ice hockey training system for players at all levels. Since then, I’ve been humbled by the overwhelmingly positive feedback I’ve gotten from all the people that picked up a copy.
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 program. Over the next week, I’ll be making these videos available to the public for the first time, starting with today’s video on Transitional Speed Training for Hockey, which I strongly believe is the secret to making off-ice speed training transfer to on-ice improvements.
Please take a few minutes to watch the video below and post your comments. If you picked up a couple good speed training 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 strategic hockey training plan, check out my book Ultimate Hockey Training!
