Another week, another group of podcasts and articles to read and listen to that I have dived into. Like every other week, there was a ton of content out there both in written form and through podcasts. Enjoy!
For podcasts, I listened to a bunch of podcasts that were a little old, but a lot that were good nonetheless. If I were to pick one or two to recommend, I enjoyed listening to Michael Vaughn talk about monitoring at Merrimack College and I also enjoyed listening to Pete Dupuis speaking about business on the Business for Unicorns podcast.
For articles, you could go with a classic like Mike Boyle’s article on training hip flexion, which is a great read. In addition, Eric Cressey posted a really cool glute-ham raise variation that people may want to check out.

In-Season Hockey 🏒Training Thoughts 💭Day 1 of 10 (or maybe 15, we’ll see 🤷♂️) .. — 💥Use Contrast/Complex Training for Power Development 💥. . — In-season this year our Wednesday lift has included a heavy dose of contrast/complex training (pairing a biomechanically similar strength exercise with a power exercise) to increase power development. . — We’ve performed a lot of different combos over the last 4-6 months, here are a few 👇 💥 Trap Bar DL ➡️ Jump Squat.. . 💥 Chin Up ➡️ Overhead Slam.. . 💥 Sled March ➡️ Timed 10’s.. . 💥 Alternating DB Bench ➡️ Partner Chest Pass.. . — Though we still focus on developing strength (our Monday lift is much more strength focused) a main of ours this year has been to develop the most powerful, most explosive, and fastest hockey players we can, not necessarily developing the strongest players we can.
