If you can’t skate, you can’t play. To improve skating, you must first develop the physical tools perfect skating requires. Hockey-specific leg strength and power speed center (core) will help you generate explosive, on-ice action. Lower-Body Power for Hockey Performance: Legs & Core explains how to link the legs and speed center to improve stride power, skating acceleration, shot velocity, body checking, and dynamic balance. Among the topics covered: commonalities for hockey lifting, leg exercises, rotational training, core exercises, on-ice exercises, and developmental drills. Produced in cooperation with the National Strength and Conditioning Association.
