Hockey Weight Training Exercises

Hockey Skates

Weight training for hockey is extremely important to anyones hockey career. One must focus on very powerful transverse abdominal exercises and overall power compound training. Below are exercises which can be incorporated into your hockey workout

Muscles needed to be focused on for hockey

When choosing weight training hockey exercises think about the most common motions performed during a hockey game and then tailor your workout around the muscles used.

Legs - Powerful legs are important for speed, agility, and shot power (transfering bodyweight from one leg to the other).

Chest- Chest muscles are extremely important for overall upper body stability.

Hip Flexors-
Hip flexors are important for stride speed and power.

Back -
Any pulling action requires your back, any type of rough housing will require a strong back to maintain balance.

Shoulders-
Many hockey players end up with terrible shoulder muscles without strong and good rotator cuff muscles. Making sure you have muscle mass will protect against any strong blows or twisting when your muscle is not prepared.

Rotator Cuff - Rotator Cuffs are used during every shot and arm rotational motion during hockey. Strong rotator cuffs are important for this.

Abdominals
- Abdominals are VERY important for core strength and will increase your endurance during the hockey game..
