Jumping rope is really good cardio.

I'll recommend sled dragging as well, but unless you live in the boonies, it ain't really feasible.

Get a bike and ride like lance. honestly. in my USA Hockey mag. i read all the time on how to increase endurance and that best way is to et on a actual bike and ride like the dickens. in one summer i lost 10 pounds and went from a 9 min mile to a 630 mile.

If you have access to a pool, lap swimming is great.

I'll second the jog and bike riding suggestions. They are great ways to lose weight and gain endurance.

I am also going to add doing speed/FARTLEK training at least once a week to help train your body for 30-45 second sprint intervals. Which, as most know, is about the time of a shift.

Good luck in the upcoming season.

i saw someone post this here a month or 2 ago, and they said that a good way to build stamina is to sprint for 15 seconds as fast as you can and rest for 30 and repeat this until your tired and do this for about a week and thenext week move up to 30 seconds and rest for 45 and so on. is this the correct thing that they said? somebody please refresh my memory

What really improved my stamina was going to a rink by work that had public skating around lunch time. I would go there 2x a week and skate my ass off for 30 mins each time.

I think that's what they said, they also said that is hard to do.

I suggest doing and clycing class at your gym, get on those this and sprint for like and hour on a bike really works.

definitly not true,BUT the best thing for hockey players to do is sprints becuase it simulates skating hard for a shift the going of then skating hard etc..

Somewhat. It doesn't get you "used to moving slow" but it will tone down your muscles. Jogging is absolutely not the way to go if you're training for hockey.

HIIT was the best suggestion. There is simply no better way to improve stamina, period.

I'll agree with this as I used to work at a rink as a skate guard during public session. I'd open it up on the ice and showoff lol but it was actually helping at the same time. I was playing 3-4 times a week and sometimes only 5 guys and a goalie would show up and I'd skate the whole game. After doing this a few times I had no problems doing it on a regular basis. This was of course before I made the jump to D2 and D1 mens league. At that level you'll probably die.

Anyhow, someone previously mentioned sprinting for 15 seconds. This kind of training is only good to build your anaerobic conditioning when you'll need a burst of speed, quickness or a little extra energy to get a shot off at the end of your shift. Plyometrics is also good for this but do not confuse it with stamina training.

If hockey is your game, on ice practice sessions cannot be sacrificed. The same can be said for your off ice workouts. Unfortunately it can be a PITA to get ice time in order to improve your on ice conditioning.

Also, it is best to train in a way that would be beneficial to you on the ice. Sprints are great.

The average hockey shift is 45 seconds, if you are on the ice longer than than you should train yourself for that or even better, get the hell off the ice. Example, if you are riding a bike at the gym or even outside (just be careful outside) and your average shift is 45 seconds, start riding your bike this way.

45 seconds all out, don't hold back!! Then coast until you think your next shift would be while still peddlng nice and easy. I believe I heard coast peddling afterwards helps get rid of some lactid acid. Then BAM! open it up again for 45 seconds and so on.

This method helped me out alot and I could see improvements within a few weeks. One thing that helped during fatigued sessions on the bike, was to just visualize every turn of the pedals as your feet moving on the ice. Picture yourself skating in a real game situation as you peddle. Helped me keep my mind off the fact that my legs were tired.

I'd skip all this hard training and just drink some Vespa before games.

You might not like it at first, but it helps your game. Trust me. My gym teacher in high school said that skipping rope is great for your heart and improves your stamina. I decided to give it a shot, and I had more stamina, which lead to more speed, and a better game all around.
