Practice skating backwards with the puck, transitions, walking the line, taking and giving passes and do a couple of medium, then hard laps before stretching out.
im actually going to so local tennis courts today to practice my backwards skating. im a n00b so i dont know how to do crossovers backwards. this really hurt me when i got caught flatfootes and needed to skate back wards. i can backwards skate at a good speed but my acceleration SUCKS. it takes me a bit to get up to speed.
but i hear you on warm ups. instead of firing pucks at the empty net i take time to skate around and transition since im new to all of this.
