I posted about this same topic a little while back so I’ll keep it short and to the point ➡️ during the season hockey players perform a ton of rotational movements through actions like shooting or passing the puck. As much as I love rotational med ball work, doing more rotational work during this time period is probably trying filling a bucket that’s already overflowing. We save most all our rotational med ball work for the off-season, except for a couple sets of Side Tosses the day before a game to try to get a PAP effect.
Advice: we tend to focus more on non-rotational type med ball work, things like chest pass variations, overhead throw variations, and overhead Slam variations.
