I've done some occasional lifting, but nothing on a serious schedule however I do want to get on a strict schedule this summer.
As I said before, I will be skating every M/W/F morning so if its better to be getting as strong as possible is it okay to be weight training after my morning skates? And then doing some conditioning/endurance on the Tues/Thurs?
I think 20 lbs is a good target for you to gain. Like someone said before, a 5x5 regimen is a good idea, but stick to hockey specific exercises. Bent over rows, deadlifts, squats and lunges are going to be your main foundation. The military press is also great for hockey. Remember to not go nuts with the junk food. Keep a clean diet.
