In this video I go over three different types of on-ice hockey conditioning workouts that hockey coaches can run their players though.
Here are the workouts in the video:
A: 8 sets of 8secs all out effort with 90secs rest in between rounds
B: 8 sets of 10secs all out effort with 2mins rest in between rounds
A: 8 sets of 10s all out effort with 45secs in between rounds
B: 8 sets of 12s all out effort with 45secs in between rounds
Anaerobic lactic work:
A: 6 x 30secs all out effort with 60secs rest in between rounds
B: 4 x 45secs all out effort with 90secs rest in between rounds
As an added tip, I like to throw in skating backwards first for defense men. So, d-men would skate backwards (about 5 yards) to the goal line and then explode forward and that's when the clock starts. This teaches them to overcome their own bodies inertia which better helps replicate a game.
