Hockey Workout – How to Set It Up

By Dan Garner, Hockey Training, 02/18/19, 12:00PM CST


From a training specificity perspective, everything that a hockey athlete goes through is in short intense burst of highly energy-costly effort, and not long duration moderate intensity effort.

When you are creating a workout for hockey performance, it must fall within the “big picture” plan for the entire years worth of training. A workout will only ever be as effective as its implementation within the entire system, and within a hockey training system, a workout is actually the smallest fraction.

Your vision must be large enough to understand that a training year is made up of training blocks, training blocks are then broken down into training cycles, training cycles are then broken down into training weeks, training weeks are then broken down into training days, and training days are broken down into training sessions.
