🚨 Matt Barzal First NHL Goal πŸ”₯
Client @barzal97 got his first regular season goal last night using his wheels to drive wide πŸ™Œ. Watch how he uses crossovers as a speed burst then widens his stance to gain position on the defender. No fancy handles on this play, just good movement, good puck protection, and a puck on net! Who's going to be next to cross their first NHL goal off the list? πŸ’ #SkateWithPower

🚨#WorkoutWednesday πŸ’ͺ
Get that heart rate up and try out the med-ball slam! Take a medicine ball and lift it up as high as you can stretching out those abs πŸ’. Contract your core and slam that ball as hard as you can down on the ground. Pick it up and repeat. If you're in a public gym with regular medicine balls this might not be the best exercise πŸ™ˆ. But if you have a space that it's okay to make a bit of noise and throw things around then go for it πŸ‘Œ. We typically throw this exercise in as a station within a circuit. Oh, and let us know if you're interested in training at the Skate With Power facility 😍 #SkateWithPower

🚨 Outside Edge Jump πŸ’₯
Want to be stronger and more explosive on your outside edges? Try this drill out πŸ‘Œ. Adding a jump to a simple drill forces the players to fully extend their pushing leg, and load up before they explode. When you just ride your edges down the ice it's easy to become straight legged. The jump forces the player to bend their knee, since you can't jump off of a straight leg (or at least very well πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ). Ride the outside edges with control and aim to land on the other outside edge as you jump across. Keep your head and chest up throughout the movement πŸ‘. Many players lack explosiveness off of the outside edge, this is a great warmup drill to turn that around πŸ”₯ #SkateWithPower

🚨 Barzal Step Behind πŸ’₯
Client Matthew Barzal (@barzal97) recorded his first @nhl regular season assist last night! This is a clip from the summer working on his outside edges moving backwards πŸ‘Œ. Start slow and work your way towards moving your feet quicker while riding those edges. It's an uncomfortable movement because we're used to stepping in front of the other foot instead of behind. Push your feet and push your brain to become more comfortable πŸ˜…. We understand you aren't going to do this in a game, but it's a fun way to work your feet and improve your coordination! Try it out yourself πŸ’ͺ. Congrats Barz! #SkateWithPower

🚨Heinen 3 points in 2 Games πŸ’₯
Client Danton Heinen is off to a great start with the Bruins πŸ‘Œ. No matter what happens for him, the entire process is always a learning experience. YOU can learn from players as you watch them. Learn to be resilient and play your heart out every game, no matter what line you're on. If you get sent down don't sulk and complain about how you don't deserve to be where you are. Work harder πŸ’ͺ. Some guys never get cut from a team, but that's a very select few. Most of you will have to battle adversity to achieve your goals. Learn from watching, and don't stop working πŸ‘Œ#SkateWithPower

🚨 Heinen's First NHL Assist πŸ”Š
Watch and listen as client Danton Heinen (@dantonheinen) drives the puck to the net πŸ‘Œ. This video focuses less on skating than normal, but we had to post it because we're so excited for him πŸ˜…. This is a great learning video for many young players looking to earn more points. Instead of sticking to the perimeter of the ice Danton sees a small opening to the net and takes it. What begins as an uneventful play quickly turns into a goal because of his determination to get to the dirty area πŸ’ͺ. He lowers his stance and widens his feet to ensure he doesn't get knocked over. It's easy to watch toe drags and spin-o-rama's in the highlights and assume that's how you can get more points. The highlight reel fancy goals don't happen nearly as often as the dirty ones. When in doubt, get to the front of the net! Good job Heinz πŸ™Œ #SkateWithPower

🚨#WorkoutWednesday πŸ’ͺ
Cam Barker hammering out jumps on the @vertimax πŸ‘Œ. If you've been watching the NHL this season, you may have heard announcers talking about players cutting weight in the off-season to try and get faster. It's no secret that the game has changed and speed is one of the most important assets a player can have. Cutting weight isn't the answer for all players, but it's interesting to see the contrast to old school hockey where everyone was trying to be bigger. No matter your stature, jumping movements are a great way to work on quick twitch muscle development and overall speed on the ice πŸ’₯. Focus on exploding as high and as quickly as possible every single rep πŸ‘. The game isn't going to get any slower, and off-ice training is 100% necessary to supplement the technique you have on the ice. Make sure you work hard in the gym too πŸ™Œ #SkateWithPower

🚨Inside Edges Backwards πŸ’₯
Add this drill to your warmups to help with edge control and balance πŸ‘Œ. Bend your knees and push off of one inside edge. Ride the other edge under control as you move laterally. Give a good strong push to the other foot to ensure you don't lose speed moving down the ice πŸ‘Œ. This drill can be used by players at all levels. For younger players spend more time on the technique and learning how to do the movement properly. Older players will likely have less trouble so add a puck and work it into their skating warmup! We use this drill with kids as well as our NHL clients πŸ™Œ #SkateWithPower

🚨 #SWPanalysis πŸ”Š
Learn from @bohorvat how to drive wide with a purpose πŸ’ͺ. This analysis provides a quick breakdown of how his movement draws players and makes them react, as well as the technique of his last crossover before he drives the net. Notice how Bo moves to the middle of the ice and receives the puck while he's crossing his feet to the wall. It's crucial at the top levels to be able to receive passes while moving πŸ‘Œ. He throws in one crossover to the middle of the ice that forces the defender to slide. It may seem subtle from a viewers standpoint, but when a player is moving this fast coming at you then you have to react and take away the middle πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ. Next you can see how his inside leg lands underneath his shoulder which allows him to generate a long, strong push on his outside edge. He plants his feet and spots the puck before tucking it upstairs πŸ™Œ. The @canucks skills coach Glenn Carnegie is one of the best in the game, no doubt he's been putting in some time with Bo! Work on these concepts to make yourself more effective and move on to the next level πŸ™ #SkateWithPower

🚨BCHL Points Leader πŸ™Œ
Client Ross Armour (@rarmour9) is among many clients off to a great start this season πŸ‘Œ. Ross came to work with us this summer with no power skating experience under his belt. It's important to understand that he didn't crush every exercise and drill he did right away. Even the video above isn't done absolutely perfect. Know what makes a good player great? The readiness to learn and work. If you let yourself get caught up in perfection it's hard to try something new. Be okay with learning, and not always being the best. Be humble and eager to work on your weaknesses! In order to improve, you have to get started πŸ’. For the drill above, ride your inside edge while turning your shoulders inwards. Pivot onto your outside edge without spraying snow and ride that edge around. Be patient and move laterally. Once you move far enough, open your hip and push onto the other inside edge πŸ”₯#SkateWithPower
