How to Unlock Your Muscles with this Essential Recovery Routine for Goalies

Are you a hockey goalie who struggles to relax after a big game? Join Maria in today’s Goalie Training ProTV video for a post-ice recovery and relaxation routine as one piece of your off-ice goalie training. This quick, (less than) 10-minute, goalie specific practice not only helps your muscles relax but also resets your mental state from the intense ‘fight or flight’ mode to ‘rest and recover.’

If you’re having trouble viewing the video, check it out on Maria’s YouTube Channel.

Here’s the goalie post-skate recovery routine:

  • Foam Roll: Adductors, Quadriceps, ITB Borders (30s each)
  • Half Groin Rock Back: 6 each side (5s hold)
  • Half Groin Rotation: 30s each side
  • Passive Groin Stretch on Wall w Arms Overhead: Focus on breathing (90s)
