Big things come in small packages.

I have a nice bonus offer for you at the bottom of this email – I am basically giving you $37, but first I want to share a little story with you.

I am not sure why, but when I started to write this post an expression from my youth came back to me.  As the youngest (and smallest) of three kids my Mom & Dad often had to remind me that ‘big things come in small packages’.  My Mom tells a great story about how disheartened I was my first three years of going to school.  You see we would always go downtown to Eaton’s for a few new back-to-school outfits.  Typically something in a nice corduroy and a nice patterned shirt with a big collar (ahhh the joys of being a kid in the 70’s!).  Well for the first three years of this exercise I wore the exact same size every year – I still remember – it was size 6x.

I would actually cry about it and my Mom would remind me that good things come in small packages.  I think she was right and eventually I moved beyond the size 6x (still love corduroy though!).

I think the same can ring true for training.  Hockey goalies often sell themselves short, believing that if they do not have an hour or more everyday to train, that it is not really worth the bother doing less.  Nothing could be farther from the truth based on my experience.  Let’s say an NHL goalie does off-ice training for 2 hours per day, five days per week in the off-season.  Assuming they are doing the right type of training, let’s say that gives them 100% improvement.

Using the same logic, does it make sense that if you trained 2-4 times per week for a maximum of 40-minutes per session (some workouts will only be 15-20 minutes long) that you could improve your on-ice performance by 15-20%?  Would any of you like to be 15-20% better?

To be honest with you, I think you would see much more than just 15-20% of the on-ice results with the reduced training schedule because I believe the most valuable time of the training session is the first 45-minutes.  The focus is great, the goalie has a full capacity to do work and they are keen to do work.

Remember back in the summer I polled you all and asked you what you would like my next product to be?  I took all of your responses and tabulated the results to see what the most common issue was.  There was a very clear request for a specific type of program from two very specific populations.  The request was for a fast workout that was specific to hockey goalies which could be done at home with minimal specialized equipment.  The populations were junior players 14-17 years of age and adult players 35-50 years of age.  Both have busy schedules but clearly a strong desire to maximize their on-ice performance and they aren’t afraid to work for it.

I have typed way to much already, so I will tell you more about the new product in a few days, but for now I want to give you a the opportunity to be first in line for off-ice goalie trainingthe Rapid Response Goalie Training program.  Hey, there have to be a few perks for being a loyal reader!  As another bonus, I am going to give you a copy of my Ultimate 12-Minute Warm-Up for Goalies product.  It sells for $37, but I am giving it away when you sign up for the “Front of the Line” list.  Oh yeah, it is yours to keep whether you buy the new program or not.  Just follow this link, enter your email address and the goalie warm-up is yours – free!  CLICK HERE
