As long as you're a fully grown man who hits the gym somewhat often and not a total twig, I really do think shooting is almost entirely about technique, not strength. I've seen plenty of skinny guys who can blast the puck as hard as anyone. Look at guys like Mike Ribeiro and Kyle Wellwood, they have NHL level shots despite having the muscle mass of 12 year olds. As beavboyz said, I think just shooting the puck a tonne is the best way to improve your power, you'll naturally strengthen the muscles you need a bit, and dramatically improve your technique.
