Sleds are a huge part of our training with hockey players.
During the off-season, Sled Crossovers are a staple. It’s a great way to train the groin for the demands of a long hockey seasons and also allows us to get more strength work in the frontal plane.
In both the off-season and during the in-season period, Sled Marching is a great way to get more hip extension into the program. Since hockey skate in a constant flexed hip position, giving them what they don’t get is a great way to create some balance in the hip structures and keep those hips healthy.
