Contrast training ➡️ start with a heavy lift in the 3-5 rep range and follow it up with an unloaded power movement in the 5-10 rep range.
The concept isn’t new, but the ability to simultaneously train strength and power within the same set is tough to beat.
And because hockey is a sport that requires large amounts and strength and power in an unilateral manner in order to be a powerful skater, unilateral contrast work would seem to be more ‘sport-specific’.
