NHL conditioning program

Does anyone have or know where I can get one? Even if it's not NHL (AHL, ECHL,....) it's ok.
Just wanna get a really good program for next season to be in top shape! I know they're not easy to find (btw I tried for a few hours to get my hands on one....no luck) but I'm sure some of you know where to get one. I'm aware lots of players train individually or in little groups during summer but I'm sure there's something some of them do that's in common.


thanks

Maybe I should have elaborated a little more on the links that I sent. If you were to contact Twist conditioning they could lead you in the right direction as far as a program specificaly for you. But the oter posts are correct, if you arent on an actual team then it might be impossible to get an actual program. Even though many years ago an old coach of myne gave me a program designed by Roger Neilson. Maybe you should ask on of your old coaches. That might have some connects and get there hands on one.

No. NHL teams have their own trainers who work on tailoring workouts to each player. There's no set formula.

There are a lot of stationary bikes and such, a lot of balance training and such. Some players need to add bulk, so they get routines to help them bulk up.

In the offseason, players often pick out a trainer or athletic training company and train with them.

If you want to get as close to what pro players do as you can, find a personal trainer familiar with hockey. Preset routines are really only for mass market consumption- anybody serious about training has an individualized routine.

Yes unless if you are not a pro and do not know a NHL trainer personaly; it will be hard to find a real trainer.I have worked out with a NHL trainer before but I knew him.

On the net, you can find the Jarome Iginla program's, Marty St-Louis legs program's too and what Chris Chelios do in off-season... I don't remember all of them but I can find them easily... Maybe tomorrow I'll post them if I had time.

If you want to think about what to be working on, here are the four key things: Legs, CORE, (being the most important), forearm and wrists. to snap a shot, the forearm and wrists are key, but to get any kind of power behind it, you need a core that is not only strong, but flexible, and in the end all movement will flow through it. The legs, when strong, give better balance, therefore producing a better shot. Also, having a finely tuned core and completely worked legs will give you such an advantage over the average player. Your skating will be better, crisper, and your strides will be fuller and last longer.

No matter what you do, make sure to STRETCH! Being lose is just as important as being properly fit. John Daily may be the fattest ass on the PGA tour, but he can smack the hell out of the ball because he has great form, and his core is more flexible then a wet noodle.

Hopefully that helps guide you in some way to helping you keep yourself in proper shape.

Best hockey conditioning program for non pros is to probably play 4 or 5x a week. If you survive the first few weeks, you'll be set.

That's not exactly the 97-98 redwings off-season training, it's an less intensive training for younger person. He seems to be ok, since nothing to call your mom's

I just hate one exercice... The one named "The torso arms swings"... Thanks for the post.

Here's a thread from a training forum where a trainer discusses his strategies for training hockey players:

He's worked with a few hockey players, most notably Brian Gionta.
