I like Gary Roberts' idea of training for hockey. He thinks it's better to get as strong as possible rather than cardio conditioning. And it's hard to argue when he trained Stamkos and Downey this offseason and they had monster years. The theory is that hockey is more anaerobic than aerobic, that strong legs equal power and bigger impact on the ice.
I agree, but lean mass, not general bulk is best for hockey. And the catch is, lean mass takes a LONG TIME to get. General bulk will slow you down, lean mass will speed you up. Basically, if you can gain 10 lbs of solid muscle in a span of 6 months, you're doing great! Good luck.
