Hand Supported Split Squat Variations

If you look at almost all the force producing efforts on the ice you’ll quickly notice that these forces are almost exclusively done on one leg. Because of that, one of my main goals this summer with our hockey group was to get them as strong as possible on one leg, and the Hand Assisted split squat variations have really helped us in doing so. Over the last 4-6 weeks we have been able to train with weights that we haven’t been able to touch in the past, allowing them to adapt to these greater degree and hopefully be stronger and more powerful come October.
