With a handful of positions and specific training regimens for each of them, training your body specifically to improve your hockey ability and hockey conditioning can be overwhelming for some. Here are 5 at home exercises I have used and which are beneficial for any hockey player, no matter the position or skill level.
Nothing new with this one. You can either buy a specific piece of exercise equipment or make your own using a hockey stick, skate lace, and 5-10 lb weight. Simply extend your arms out in front of you so that they are parallel to the ground with your palms pronated (facing down). Holding the hockey stick or apparatus, start to roll the stick over until the weight gets to the top, lower it down slowly then repeat. You can change up the pace and positioning/width of your hands. You can vary the weight, rest, tempo and rep ranges, but for starters I would recommend doing 60 seconds on, 60 seconds off for 3-5 rounds.
