This week’s video features another exercise using HockeyShot’s Plyo Boxes. This week, we look at a lunge exercise used to maintain posture and powerful stance, while developing leg strength.
The ability to generate quick and explosive power is essential for every hockey player. In this video, we cover the Plyo Box Squat Jumps. This exercise requires the athlete to get into a low powerful stance and explode up to the platform while staying on the balls of the feet to maintain balance and stability.
In the 3rd segment of our Off Ice Stickhandling Series we cover ways keep your training fresh. This video covers the use of training aids (links below) and body movements to vary your stickhandling training.
As players across the world prepare to hone their skills in the off-season, we have put together a 3-part video series covering the basics of training stickhandling off ice. In part one we cover basic technique, dribbles, and practice drills to help you train properly.
The summer is here, and many players are now enjoying the “off-season.” This is the time of year where good players become great. This time of year separates the players who are serious about the game, and those who are not. I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve been asked “what should my player do this summer” – and I’m sure many other coaches out there hear it all the time. I wanted to share some quick thoughts on how to approach the off-season…
It’s no secret that training during the off-season can make you a better hockey player. The issue most players/coaches have is they don’t know WHAT to do. Friend and fellow hockey training professional Jeremy Weiss has put together a program called S3, and has released FREE videos to explain what he’s got.
We put together a new video featuring three of our favorite off-ice agility ladder drills to help players develop their quickness and foot speed.
Sometimes some of the best content on the web is hard to dig up. While looking for some off-ice stickhandling drills, I came across a 20-part video series offered free online by USA Hockey. This series is part of their National Team Development Program training.
