I take it you're a forward???

If I have the puck and I'm out of options, I make a window and play forward... If you're if front of me, you're getting hit! Lol....

For sure, the hits I've taken over the years must be a help in one way or another??? Even if it's to keep those pesky skiers out of my way! ;-)

ME TOO! Rec that is! Lol...
Where are you based???
I used to play forward but my coach wanted me out back because I was one of the few that was happy to hit and be hit.... Part of the game you know!
Anyway, went out to our indoor slope last night and where my wife was moaning about her quads, I was fine as ever, she just skis up and down, no trick or jumps, I go much harder and get in as much as I can....
I had a great session!

Isometrics and yoga ... When you take a blow if your flexible that may save you from getting injured and isometrics will help with just about anything. Although were talking snowboarding it will help in your hockey as well

I can't recommend Insanity enough. I didn't know it going in to it, but it is heavily focused on leg and core strength. SO MUCH QUAD WORK.

It is quite heavy impact though. I had to stop due to some pain in my ankle, but I'm going to start back up again try to substitute in lower impact exercises. Simple squats instead of squat jumps for instance.

Even after the first 2 weeks my girlfriend was like "Damn!"

Finished it last month and starting Asylum this month. Asylum takes it to the next level with compuound/crossfit type movements.

I was just thinking about this while reading the leg burn thread, but it didnt fit there, but it seems to fit better here. does anyone here do anything else for their legs other than squat, DL, or leg press? Personally over the past 7 years ive been training for football, Ive been power cleaning and split jerking to help build my explosive "fast twitch muscles" along with the traditional bench, and squat exercises. Now, even though ive been training for football using these methods, i cant seem to think how these exercises wouldnt help you while you're snowboarding. I'll bet if you guys started looking into training the fast twitch muscles you'll get way more air on your ollies, and when you load up that board off a booter you'll really send it.

I workout a different core lift every day over the course of 4 days.

For example monday is power clean day, tuesday is Split Jerk, Wednesday is Hang Clean, and Friday is Squat. I'll supplement that lift with a total body workout, which means i'll train every part of my body.

If you learn to exert explosive force, im sure it will help your riding.


Anyone doing stuff like this?

i'm probably one of the most unflexible people around... 10 years of lifting tends to do that to you... It's really something you have to learn and grow comfortable doing much like snowboarding. You should just try it, i find it hard to believe there is someone less flexible than me...

Sup man, did not read anything in the thread aside from first post so forgive me if I repeat something. I'm a certified personal trainer.

Anyways with ice hockey and snowboarding your main muscles are quads, glutes, hams and calves. Snowboarding having more emphasis on teardrops and calves. Hockey more emphasis on hams and glutes and the whole quad.

Solution?

Incorporate these exercises at these rep ranges into your current workout program.

Calf Raise supersetted with tibialis raises (5 sets x 15-20 reps) 30 second rest
Barbell Squat (high bar) work up to a heavy set 3 sets x 8-12 reps
Lunges or DB/BB split squat (will wreck your teardrops beyond belief) 3x12-15

Additional mentions:

45 degree hack squat - brutal on the quads specifically teardrops

Leg press (feet close & low toes pointed out for tear drops, low and wide for inner thigh activation)

Stiff leg deadlifts/RDLS (glutes & hams)

Jefferson squats (glutes & hams)
