Monday Musings

Happy Monday!

Here are a few thoughts bouncing around in my head after a week of reading, podcasts, cruising social media and any other continuing ed.


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. If you train patterns, you will not miss muscles. If you train muscles, you will miss patterns. – Team EXOS
  4. 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)
