Your Speed Training for Hockey Questions answered!

With the release of Speed Training for Hockey, I realize you may have some questions about the book and program. Check out the Q&A below, and if I missed anything, feel free to ask your question(s) by responding to this email:

What exactly is Speed Training for Hockey?

    Speed Training for Hockey is a 150-page book that dissects all aspects of speed development for ice hockey players. It includes three 12-week training programs for players in the U-14, 14-18, and 18+ age groups, and a video database of all the exercises included in the programs.

*You can choose to order either a physical or digital copy of the book. When you order, you’ll receive immediate access to a digital version of the book (including the programs) and the video database.

Is this more for strength and conditioning coaches or for hockey coaches, players, and parents?

    While performance coaches will benefit from reading the book, Speed Training for Hockey is written specifically for hockey coaches, players, and parents. The goal was to give players highly effective off-ice speed training programs, all of the resources they need to implement the program specifically, and powerful tips on how to maximize speed on the ice.

What if I don’t know how to perform the exercises?

    The video database has a demonstration of each exercise within the program, and the book includes a section outlining the most powerful coaching cues I use regularly with hockey players to maximize the safety and effectiveness of each exercise.

What if I don’t have the equipment needed to do the program?

    There is a section in the book specifically devoted to answering this question. In short, almost every exercise can be substituted with an alternative without losing the effectiveness/intent of the original exercise. The book provides alternative options for the most common equipment limitations.

Does the program include conditioning work?

    This is a GREAT question. It doesn’t matter how fast you are if you can’t repeat high speed efforts consistently. Conditioning for this repeat sprint ability requires specific methods and strategies that differ drastically from what most players do to “get in shape.” These methods are integrated within the training programs, so players can maximize both their speed, and their consistency.

Is this a one-time purchase or are their recurring payments?

    This is a one-time purchase. When you buy Speed Training for Hockey, you get the book, training programs, and the video database so you can download all of them and refer to them again and again.

What if I want the physical book and a digital copy?

   That’s easy – when you buy a physical copy of the book, you ALSO receive a digital copy. Some people (myself included) prefer to have a hard copy of the book, but digital versions are easier to search for specific things. So if you don’t mind paying for shipping, you can get both versions, physical and digital, for the same base cost as only buying the digital version.
