At every level, it’s the fastest players who win races to loose pucks, create the time and space needed to get quality shots off, and ultimately create the most opportunities. In a game where a fraction of a second can mean the difference between winning and losing, speed separates the elite players from the average ones. Clearly, hockey players must seize every opportunity to improve their speed. The trouble is, there’s a widespread misunderstanding of how to best train for speed. Many players continue to spend valuable training time on “quick feet” drills with cones and ladders, as well as other speed drills they typically lift from a track and field or football training program. This so-called “speed work” is often supplemented with old school bodybuilding or powerlifting routines in the weight room, or worse, no strength training at all. Unfortunately, these common off-ice training practices have little bearing on skating and on-ice performance. Skating is a unique motion that has several very notable differences compared to running. Understanding these differences, as well as considering the impact of the rapid accelerations, decelerations, and direction changes required in hockey are all incredibly important when designing a...


One day I was challenged by one of my friends to do a back lever, and miserably I couldn’t even get myself in the right position. Even though I trained for years I lacked simple flexibility, mobility and balance. My big muscles locked my movements and I become a prisoner of them. Few years later I joined CrossFit and just months into training I ended with a nasty shoulder injury. I pushed too hard. I still love Crossfit but I needed to find a way to train with my injury while still gaining strength. Plus I was sick of being dependent on having a box or a gym to go to. That was the time when I truly discovered calisthenics – a lost art of the most effective, natural strength training on earth which is just using bodyweight. Calisthenics is the art of increasing resistance with only your bodyweight to develop insane strength. Using progressive resistance, similar to weight training, you add difficulty levels across a full range of motion, skill, position, etc And because calisthenics uses only natural movements, it not only protects and strengthens your joints, but also conditions your body into amazing shape. It builds incredible strength...
