If you want to think about what to be working on, here are the four key things: Legs,
, (being the most important), forearm and wrists. to snap a shot, the forearm and wrists are key, but to get any kind of power behind it, you need a core that is not only strong, but flexible, and in the end all movement will flow through it. The legs, when strong, give better balance, therefore producing a better shot. Also, having a finely tuned core and completely worked legs will give you such an advantage over the average player. Your skating will be better, crisper, and your strides will be fuller and last longer.
No matter what you do, make sure to STRETCH! Being lose is just as important as being properly fit. John Daily may be the fattest ass on the PGA tour, but he can smack the hell out of the ball because he has great form, and his core is more flexible then a wet noodle.
Hopefully that helps guide you in some way to helping you keep yourself in proper shape.
