The 50 Week Hockey Training Manual is a comprehensive training e-book designed to give athletes of all levels the template for strength in sport. Athletic success is contingent on control of variables such as situation/season, training design (sets, reps, rest, tempo), stage of training, and level of athlete. By successively introducing into the training program separate, specific means, each of which has a progressively strong training effect, and coupling them, we create conditions for linear increase in strength, speed, and agility.
For those new to training, the foundation training template provides a great starting point. The objective is on education and the gradual introduction of sport specific basic fundamentals and techniques. Athletes are exposed to a wide variety of training that stimulates healthy physical development and increases functional capabilities, motor abilities, and knowledge base.
As athletes mature detailed pre-season , in- season, and off- season training programs are designed around the hockey calendar. All exercises include a video example to provide a checkpoint for form and technique.
