Hockey movements in the gym are skills that you develop over time in the same way that you develop new skills on the ice.
When it comes to hockey performance, you need to have the ability to express maximal force in the shortest timeframe possible. The faster you can express force into the hockey specific planes of motion, the more explosive and powerful you’re going to be on the ice.
The shot is no exception here.
Proper hockey training requires understanding the energy systems and muscle recruitment that is used out on the ice and reverse engineer those steps accordingly so we can train exactly how we need to in order to improve your performance, and not just make you stronger.
