Hockey with Peter Twist ( TRT: approx. 52 minutes)
Learn integrated movement skills that will help you develop the strength, endurance, quickness and balance that can easily transfer to the ice rink. Train with a style that teaches your muscles how to react quickly and efficiently to handle all the unpredictable situations you encounter in a hockey game.
Section I: Balance and Equilibrium Warm-up
The game of hockey is reliant on a single leg, deep stance and balancing on thin edges. Improving balance will help with precision skating and greater mobility on the ice.
Section II: Multi-Directional Movement
Hockey is frequently called "organized chaos" because each second is so unpredictable. The ability to change directions efficiently and under control is an important skill-set.
Section III: Neuromuscular Activation
These drills teach you techniques you can use for a pre-game dynamic warm-up as well as between periods. They prepare you for all out effort on the ice.
Section IV: Quickness and Agility
Quickness and Agility are important for both offensive and defensive one-on-one confrontation. First step quickness, racing for loose pucks, jumping into lanes or defensive mobility and containment all require quick, agile responses from the entire body.
Section V: Athletic Strength, Power and Core
This segment focuses on total body power production, core strength, stability and rotary movement skills so that you’re able to skate more efficiently, protect the puck and withstand contact.
Section VI: Stretching
Stretching can help improve performance, avoid injuries and will help your muscles relax and recover after a challenging workout or game.
