Here are a few thoughts bouncing around in my head after a week of reading, podcasts, cruising social media and any other continuing ed.
- Hockey is a sport with a huge rotational component to it. With that in mind, you should be throwing the crap out of med balls in a rotational manner throughout the off-season. As Eric Cressey is famous for saying, power is plane specific.
- Limitations in movement typically lead to limitations in sport. Get people moving well. Then get them strong in those movement patterns. Then watch it carryover to their sport.
- If you train patterns, you will not miss muscles. If you train muscles, you will miss patterns. – Team EXOS
- A player ‘buys in’ when they feel a sense of ownership about their experience. Effective coaching is opting against constantly instructing them and instead looking to create ways to engage and empower them throughout their journey. – Gary Curneen (@GaryCurneen on Twitter)
