How to get both knees down in the butterfly at the same time

Had a question over in the Goalie Training Lab  – you can join for free if you want – about driving both knees to the ice in the butterfly so they both arrive at the same time.  This goalie always had their right knee land first and had a little gap under the left knee for a couple seconds before sealing it.

Needless to say, there were quite a few 5-hole goals getting scored.

So here is a way to practice it without adding a bunch of wear and tear – you definitely do NOT want to just practice smashing down into a butterfly over and over.

Catch you on the flip side 🙂


PS – had an email from a goalie who was doing some non-specific workouts that were super, super hard with lots of deadlifts, cleans, box jumps, etc… and then he hurt his back.  So I just wanted to remind you that there is a difference between training HARD and training SMART.  If you want to find the right things to work hard on, then check out this goalie specific program
