Florida Hospital Wellness Tip

Athleticism for Hockey Players As a hockey player it is incredibly important to develop athleticism outside of the game of hockey and away from the ice. Athleticism off of the ice will have direct carryover to your game on the ice and increase the likelihood of longevity in the sport. The best way to increase overall athleticism is to focus on the following: 1. Strength is king when it comes to athleticism. Every other factor will be based on your ability to produce force. It’s absolutely paramount to develop a base level of strength in order to increase speed, power, agility and even endurance. Focus on squat and hinge patterns for the lower body and horizontal pushing and pulling for the upper body. 2. Power is merely strength within the confines of time. If you can increase your strength potential you will increase your power potential. Medball throws, jumping, skipping and bounding can help to increase your ability to produce power. If you want to be powerful, get strong! 3. The rate-limiting factor of acceleration phase speed is your ability to produce force into the ground and react off of that force. The forces produced are called ground reaction forces and can be increased through squat patterning. If you want to be fast, get strong! 4. Agility is the ability to accelerate, decelerate and reaccelerate as quickly as possible. When decelerating we at times have to overcome upwards of 4-5 times our bodyweight. In order to overcome those forces and accelerate out of that we must be able to handle those forces. If you want to be agile, get strong! 5. Flexibility is perhaps just as important as strength when it comes to athleticism. A greater range of motion will help you get into better positions and produce more torque. Active dynamic stretching is a great way to help lengthen muscles to their optimal length for producing force. If you want to get strong and powerful, become more flexible! If you’re looking to increase your abilities on the ice, focus on these components.
