Training and Scheduling Tips for the In-Season Athlete

Training and Scheduling Tips for the In-Season Athlete

I’m coming right at ya from Riihimäki, Finland – a small town hosting the U17 tournament our junior team is participating in over the weekend. We just got back from the rink where we won our Saturday morning game 2-1.

Now the guys are napping in their hotel rooms and I’m writing today’s quick post in the lobby before we head back to the ice for another round of pre-season junior hockey in the afternoon.

Which brings us straight to today’s topic…

More and more athletes realize how proper gym training in the off-season can help them build the muscular strength, size and power needed to compete at a higher level.

But once the competitive season filled with sports practice and games gets underway, many treat strength training as an afterthought.

Adding classes, assignments and exams on top of an already hectic practice schedule in the life of a high school/collegiate athlete compounds the issue even further.

Devising a simple yet effective in-season training program requires some smart planning.

And that’s exactly what I discuss in my new article on STACK.com. Check it out here:

Alright, that wraps up today’s post… Time for lunch now and some mo’ intense hockey later!
