Hockey consists of three main characteristics: strength, size, and agility. This plan is designed to target all three areas, especially strength and size. This hockey workout is meant to be completed in the off-season to allow proper recovery time, but it can be adjusted to fit your in-season schedule around games and practices.
Weekday Workout Schedule
This hockey weight training routine consists of four different workouts that are to be completed each once a week. Ideally, for those who want to take it easy on the weekends, this hockey program should be completed M,T,TR,F in the order that the workouts appear.
Each exercise consists of two sets and most (all compound exercises) have six reps because this hockey routine is designed to build strength
, not cardio or getting ripped. However, you will definitely see an increase in size, but like mentioned before the main goal is strength. Legs and core are emphasized greatly in this hockey plan because the legs are the origin of force
development and if the core is weak then the upper body will not be able to properly transfer that power into checking, shooting, and skating.
Eat a Quality Diet
Eat a lot quality calories (complex carbs
and proteins) to recover from your workouts. Don't starve your body from the nutrition it needs to re-build your torn muscles, otherwise you will see less than optimal results. Start following this plan today!
