I think I would disagree on you here, I am pretty sure I read in Wayne Gretzky's book that he could barely do push-ups and chin-ups

Of course today's game is more geared towards power forwards, so being in great shape helps a lot

For workouts I like to do a lot of stuff on the swiss balls, they are good for building core muscles

Plyometrics are good as well.
