Staying in shape for hockey

What do you guys do in the summer to stay in shape for hockey? I've been biking, rollerblading, and just plain working out all summer. Maybe someone has some different and interesting ideas they'd share.

I play hockey during the summer, try and watch what I eat, spend a lot of time playing outside with my kid, shooting baskets, swimming, ball hockey on the tennis court, etc.

Life's too short to drudge through workouts (for me anyway) so I just do things that are fun outside when it's nice.

Stand up paddle surfing is a lot of fun and is a great core workout. But I realize a lot of people don't live on the coast/near big bodies of water. I actually don't get back from work until around 7 PM, so I usually just go for a quick run or do a lot of lunges while watching sportscenter. Works pretty well if you're just playing in a men's league since skating is really the distinguishing factor between a decent player and a really good one.

Lifting weights, jump rope, golf (I carry my bag and I always walk) and I go to open skate as much as I can.
You can do all the off-ice workouts you want but there is nothing that can make up for actual ice time.

Now that it's August, you should probably work some interval training into your program to prepare you for those short, quick shifts you should be taking!

This year's summer program has included a lot of swimming, cycling, and hot yoga with some weight training in between. Now that it's August, I'm toning it down on the swimming and upping the interval training (sprints).

I've also been doing sprints, and a lot of hard biking to help my legs.

It depends. playing another high intensity sport ( ala soccer, LAX, rugby) is usually the best because it keeps you mentally tough as well.

if that can't happen definitely Interval training, with weights following the interval training.
