Crunches are the base for core muscles.

Sadly enough, most ex-OHL'ers find refuge at Jacks and Cowboy's. And monday nights, it's all about Tiger Jacks.

Arnold Press - Works your Triceps, Shoulders, trapezoids. Helps gain mass and solidity in your shoulder/neck area.

Forearm curls - Obviously, works on your fore-arms, which helps pretty much every aspect of your game, bar skating.

Any ply-o-metric exercise; Exercise-ball dumbbell press, exercise ball push-ups, exercise ball woodchoppers - All work your core, stability and balance.

One-legged smith squats are great for your legs but are hard to do correctly to maximize value.


Personally, on non-game/coaching days, my routine is get up for work, get home around 3:30, head out to the rink, skate for an hour and a half, go home and eat, relax a bit, then go to the rink from 6-8:30, play pick-up, shoot around, work on all the little stuff, then go to the gym and work-out from about 9-10:45 on a 6-day work-out plan. Make sure you isolate which muscles you work-out. If you want to get the most from your body playing hockey, follow a hockey-specific work-out regimen. High in leg, shoulder, core and cardio work-outs.
How do you wake up for work the next day?!

More importantly... how do you find all of that ice time? During school I like to workout and do 1hr of stick and puck on non-game days... but that's $5 a skate and it's always crowded.

It's really not as hard as people think. As long as you eat well and eat things that will refuel your body as you sleep. I only work 8-3, and work 5 mins from my house, so I get up at 7:15. I'm done at the gym around 10ish, and get home for about 10:10. I watch the highlights of the night/spend time with the fiancee/do other little things that need to be done/eat until about midnight when I go to bed and throw on Sportsnet and fall alseep pretty much right away to that. I work a very laxx job right now, and this isn't the routine I follow all the time. I am doing rehab on my knee and ankle after having some major surgery done to them both and need to be in top shape for when play-offs begin. So I've only been on this about 3 months. Also, 2 days out of the week, I coach house-league Midget hockey, so those days I take it easy on the ice-time and just hit the gym.

As for the ice-time, my friend owns a 4-pad and there are usually 2-3 open any time of the day, and the place is open until midnight most nights for rec-league and mens league, so usually just leaves a pad open for whichever of his buddies wants to play.
Sometimes I enjoy going to the out-door rink, too though. We have a nice one in town about 2 minutes from my house that has nice boarding and is regulation size. Having a hockey back-round makes it easier for me to have access to some things like that.

Well we sure aren't learning from you. Thanks for the 'help' though.

I work on my body condition nearly every day. I can't get myself motivated to exercise every day but I spend approx. 20 minutes on five evenings per week. I just do the basic stuff like squats, arm curls, and I have a gadget to work on my forearms. (like a ball you can press) I definitely see a progress and I'm happy with it. I'm just unhappy with my motivation and I hope I can get myself motivated for running outside when the weather gets better because I definitely need to work on my stamina / condition as well.
