  • Off season hockey training

    Hey guys I loved the sample in season program you posted on here months ago and I would love if you could post an offseason sample workout also. I tend to do more bodybuilding style training in the offseason. I'm not sure how you feel about that. Thankyou

      i would keep much of the work similar in regards to exercise type and order (increasing percentages to 85+ and hitting heavy work for triples, doubles, singles) and increase overall work volume. additionally, you'll be able to incorporate more conditioning and varied conditioning because you no longer have the demands of game performance. you can also increase the amount of accessory work to supplement your core lifts. did you have any specific questions regarding the offseason? it might be interesting to take a look at those NHL programs and see their periodization and conditioning programs

        Zimmy- Yes if you wouldnt mind that would be great, thankyou

        brineal-Thankyou and yes I do. My problem is what is too much. The reason I ask this is because today i played a pickup game on the ice and i was dead before I even started. My legs felt very heavy and I had no pickup from the drop of the puck. I have this idea in my head that with a very solid diet that I can be the very best overall trained athlete between strengh, stamina, speed, quickness and everything else basically. The problem is that I think I reached my point of too much. I still progress in the gym, but my legs were just not there today which means something is wrong.
        Heres what a week for me looks like so critque as you can.

          see i think that splitting your days like that is more akin to a bodybuilding type program, I would have a balance each day, maybe 4x per week alternating heavy power, light upper body, heavy leg or light power, heavy upper, light legs, heavy power/heavy upper/light legs, light power, light upper, heavy legs... if that makes sense, that way youre not going to be totally blasted in any one area of your body and will still be able to go out and practice without being wrecked. if i were you i would look at undulating periodization and try to familiarize yourself with those techniques because staggering intensities within a week will help you alot when it comes to performing during practices or scrimmages..

            Been a while since I've been on the board & this is a new forum. Before I post & step on anyone's toes, is it appropriate for others to answer poster's questions? I have a number of programs from my time interning w/ a Division I college hockey program that I'd be happy to share.
