A simple exercise for hockey goalies to train their ready position.

Hi Gang,

This post is a reply to a question from a thread on off-ice goalie training that I started over at www.goaliestore.com – a goalie mentioned that his legs get burning when he is holding his ready position for extended periods of time.  So here is a great ‘functional isometric’ exercise that will build the muscular endurance that you need in your legs and hips while still keeping you explosive and reactive.

Thanks for the question – please keep them coming because it really helps me keep my blog posts relevant to what you all need.  I had another email with some great questions from Kyle so stay tuned for a post on in-season training and a post on cardio training for hockey goalies.  Thanks for those Kyle!  If you have any questions, just post them in the comments section below.
