In-season off-ice circuit for goalies – no equipment needed.

How is has your week been? Mine was going great until this morning when I realized I accidentally deleted all the edited videos of my next product that I was trying to release for mid-October (insider hint…it is for you goalies). That was about 20-hours of work down the drain…oh well, back to the drawing board. I am on it, I will redo the videos and get that new training system out to you soon. Stay tuned for details, sneak peaks and of course insider discounts.

Okay, enough of my complaining, aren’t you so happy to see NHL hockey back on TV? I was thrilled to catch the first few pre-season games, it feels like it has been a very long summer.

As promised, this off-season circuit is for hockey goalies specifically and I hope you enjoy it.

How much strength and speed will YOU lose this season?

Hope you are having a great week so far. Things here are going well – back into the regular routine with my mixed high school groups. The hockey players have all shipped off to training camps, with the NHL guys getting under way on Friday, September 17th. This year I had a few guys who are looking to make the move from the AHL to the NHL so it is an anxious time as we wait to see how camp goes and where they can fit in with their NHL team. I will keep you posted.

Most of the junior kids have been away from training for a few weeks as they went through their try-outs and now they are filtering back in for their maintenance workouts 1-2 times per week at the Revolution Conditioning studio. I already see a loss of strength, just in two weeks so today I am going to give you an in-season circuit that you can do at home or at a basic gym. It will take no longer than 20-minutes and it will help keep you strong, stable and powerful.
