In case you missed it, I posted a brand new video for you the other day. In the video I lay out the #1 skill every hockey goalie needs to learn (regardless of your age and your level).
Even if you already think you are pretty good – watch the video and try some of the progressions I show you. Be picky – even video yourself and see if you can execute them all perfectly; 90% of you will not.
Even 90% of the pros I meet cannot do them perfectly; so that will become your starting point.
Here’s the skill and how to improve it:
Remember, be picky with yourself. Speed is about efficiency, using the right muscles with the right magnitude with the right direction of application.
Happy training speedster!
PS – when people ask “why goalies” as in ‘why would you make your life’s work helping hockey goalies? They think I am crazy… and I think they are crazy, because who wouldn’t love to get emails like this every week…
Entering the season, I have never felt more confident about my ability to perform at my highest level in the crease. Thanks to these programs, I feel that my body is in top shape and is allowing me to make acrobatic saves without having to worry about tweaking anything. This past weekend we beat the #5 team in the nation 2-1 in OT in a shocking victory and the first thing I thought of was my preparation from these programs. So I just want to thank you for everything that you do not only for me but i’m sure for plenty of other goalies across the country! Thanks.
