Early Off-Season Sled Work with Hockey

One thing we’ve done a little different this year is adding more sled work early in the off-season for ice hockey, for a couple reasons;
1. Drag: recondition the quads for the training to come
2. March: its critical to get hockey players into hip extension in the off-season for long term hip health and pushing a sled can be looked at as a big hip extension machine and is much more hip friendly at this time of the year compared to something like a sprint.
