🚨 Depth Jumps 👊
Want to improve your explosiveness? Try mixing in some depth jumps 👌. The goal is to get those quick twitch muscles working! Start on a bench or a box and as you hit the ground try to explode as quickly and as high as possible. This exercise is great for your first 3 steps on the ice 🔥. Try it out, and make sure you cushion that landing 😬 #SkateWithPower

🚨3-Turns 🙌
@senators prospect @macoyerkamps crushing his 3-turns in warmup. This guy struggled with his edges at the beginning of last summer 😬. He worked hard on his skating and continued to implement drills during the season. Younger players need to understand that doing a drill once won’t make a massive difference. Get that repetition in! It takes work, but if it was easy everyone would be doing it 💁. Start on your outside edge and pivot towards the middle of your turn onto your inside edge. Open up your hips and push onto the other foot. Keep your body and stick under control. Put that work in and you’ll see big results 👊 #SkateWithPower

🚨Stride Jumps on Marsblade’s 🔥
Looking to improve your balance and posture in a way that will relate to your on-ice performance? Try out the stationary stride jumps 👌. Normally players do these in their shoes, the skates add another dynamic of balance and strength that better relate to the ice. It’s tricky to keep control when stationary, but it’s a good way to push yourself 🙏🏼. Get down low and explode as far as you can off the inside of the wheels. Land on one foot and try not to put the other one down. Load up again and repeat! If you feel comfortable, try it with a puck 🤗 #SkateWithPower

🚨Hip Open = Hesitation 🔥
How can you use the hip opening in a game? Watch @ryanjohansen92 make the defender hesitate by opening up 👌. All he needed was a slight edge to get himself to the net. Notice how he pulls the puck to his back foot as he makes his move. This is a staple in our warmups for a reason, it can be directly used in a game! Keep working on those feet and you’ll find the game open up for you 🙌. Unfortunately the bar down is in your hands 😂 #SkateWithPower

🚨 Back to Basics 👌
Working on becoming a better skater is a process. Like most things in life, it takes effort and consistency to make a big difference 😅. Don’t neglect the foundation! This drill works posture, balance, and puck control. Skate backwards up to the top of the circle and glide on one leg. Your goal should be to make everything as perfect as possible 🙌. Stay in a straight line and keep that knee bend close to 90 degrees. Start without a puck and add one in later. Our society breeds impatience. We’re used to getting instant gratification and are always looking for the fastest/easiest way. Enjoy the process and don’t be afraid to work on those basics ☺️. Your career will thank you 🙏🏼 #SkateWithPower

🚨 3 Cone Outside Edges 💥
This drill is one of our favourites for pushing a player to use their outside edge during a tight turn. It also helps with the progression from a regular tight turn to a deceptive tight turn. As you can see, @ryan.murphy20 approaches the top cone in a straight line. He then rides his edge and crosses over through the middle. Once he's on the other leg he rides the edge around the far cone and finishes with one crossover 👌. We encourage you to try this one out. If it's tricky at the start, master it! #SkateWithPower

Glad those are working for you boys 🏒

Mackinnon or Fehr? 🤔
Swipe ➡️ Right
1) Mackinnon sets him self up for a quick break. By taking a wide turn he is keeping up his momentum and it allows him to explode into three crossovers which distances himself from the defenders. 💥
2) Eric Fehr uses a variation of the heel to heel move. He briefly opens up his back foot and hip which makes it seem like he is going to peel back. He completely gets Cogliano’s skates to change direction and this relieves back pressure and opens up a lane to the net for Fehr 🏒

Which goal was better? Let us know below! 😅⬇️ #skatewithpower ----------------------------------------------------

Crosby’s Edgework 💥
We talk a lot about Syd and how he uses his edges so effectively. Here he uses a heel to heel move to set him up for this wrap around. Key point here is how Crosby opens up his back foot and hip. By opening up his hips he is able to transfer his weight to his inside edges on his front and back foot. From here he is ready to push with his back foot and generate power.
We post a lot of drills focused on opening up your hips. Follow Skate With Power and implement the heel to heel move in your game! #skatewithpower
