MUST DO… BEFORE you get back on the ice ?

I am pumped too – I am going to be getting back on the ice this week for the first time and I just can’t wait to get out there and start firing off some splits saves – – ha ha ha – okay more like get out there, stumble around the ice and maybe have a few pucks accidentally hit me square in the chest… or in the butt – whatever it takes.

But quite a few of you are going to be brought back down to reality in a HURRY when you tweak your groin or pinch your hip or… take your pick.  That LAST thing any goalie wants is to be sidelined with an injury as soon as you get back onto the ice.

Even if you have been doing your goalie specific off-ice training, you have NOT been GOALIE-ing (yes, that’s a word… I just invented it).  That means your hips have not been goalie-ing either.

Your hips have regressed to ‘normal people hips’…. YUCK ?

Do yourself a favour and do this little routine 2-4 times BEFORE you get back on the ice to not only feel better when you are out there, but to reduce your risk of injury because you might find a few movements that are pretty restricted.

This isn’t a warm-up, it’s an off-ice routine to check your movements, so make sure you do it 2-4 times in the week leading up to your first outing on the ice cool?

A few goalies have already identified patterns that were really limited before they got back on the ice, so they could give that area more attention in their off-ice or on-ice warm up.  It is simple, it only takes about 10-minutes AND you get to wear your pads, so YAY!!!
