I'd like to have your guys' opinion on what you think is too much practise/hockey games for a player. Of course, it varies with how seriously you take hockey and what level you play in. For instance, in a 9 day span, I had 5 games and 4 practises. (1 day without, 1 day with 2 practises). I play quite competitive hockey. I train with a team that plays in the 3rd swiss league.
In the beginning I thought it would be beneficial, but as the days came along, I feel more and more tired. How do you know when it's too much.
p.s. I can barely stay awake during class and I feel like I've just ran a marathon when I go up some stairs .
It varies depending on the person completely...for me, I play 4 days a week (Saturday through Tuesday) and I think 5-6 days a week would be better for me. Some people would be better playing only 1-3 times a week though. I think you definitely need 1-2 days rest no matter what, maybe even 3.
well I personally do 2 hrs a day 6 days a week (1 hr off ice 1 hr on ice or shooting/stickhandling) not including game days so if you play competitive 2+ hrs 6 days a week is good but if it is rec then 1hr and 3-4 days is good aswell
I agree that at least 7 preferably 8 or more hours of sleep per night. I dont skate 5 times a week but I work out about 5-6 days a week and get 7 hours of sleep a night. Between work and working out that is all I have time for. I sleep on the train for an hour a day though. Adding to your 6 hours of sleep should help you feel better.
