really work on ur endurence strength upper body legs
i usually workout three times a week and i usually do both upper and lower body the same, but i had my dad build me a russian box for strides. go to www.hockeyshot.com and go to plyometrics machines and scroll down to the russian box and it really helps me.
My older brother told me that you dont have to have a whole bunch of muscle to play hockey you have to get your technics down and you would be fine. So far i am not the strongest on my team and also a girl but i am on of the best on my team cuz i use technics not muscle.Answer by Trevor
You’re going to want to work on your core and legs. You can do almost any ab and/or leg workout. I suggest doing wall sits and twisting and/or passing a medicine ball.Answer by ay912
you want to work legs (obviously) such as leg lifts, squats, stationary bike
core- abs, obliques you should know exercises for these
upper body- biceps curls, triceps kickbacks, chest bench, shoulders lifts and flies, wrists curls, back power clean
well you should try to get to the gym at least 3 to 4 times a week i like to workout everyday but that’s not always convenientAnswer by jfiannaca
SQUATS DEADLIFTS BENCHPRESS HANGCLEANS FRONT SQUATS SNATCHES along with any agility excercises such as squats on a stability ball, lunges, or crabwalk jumps. LOTS OF ABS AND LOWER BACK plus running long distance and doing sprints especially sprints, get on the bike as well and do forearm excercies to help with your shooting power, try not to get to bulky you gotta stay flexible and fastAnswer by Tyler
You want to work on sprints because hockey is a fast sport. I went to this one hockey camp where we did squats as we walked up hills…backwards.
