Depends on the workouts that you do.

My suggestion: Make sure your lower body (especially groin) is well rested before games. You do not want to end up with any kind of groin injury.

Definitely try to schedule your work-out routines around game days.

I find that working out lowerbody/leg muscles 2 days before game day really gives me the best results. I work them out real hard with squats and lunges and some weight exercises and make them completely gassed. Then I have a full day of recovery (with maybe some light upper body work) and get rested up for game day next day.

Unfortunately this season My game days are going to be Thurs, Sat and Sun. So I will have to tailor my routine to mon, tues, wed and leave Friday for rest.

Just don't forget to schedule those recovery days, your body will certainly need the rest period.

Good point and one that is too often overlooked.

Listen to this guy. I've played with sore/not fully recovered adductors(groin) after leg workouts twice in the last year and pulled my groin both times. Never again.

I find that scheduling leg workouts in season is extremely difficult. I'm 39 and have always needed a long time to recover from leg workouts. It's 4 days for me which means I usually train legs the morning after a game to give me maximum recovery time.

You can also cut back on the volume/intensity of your workouts if you don't have much time between games.

Totally agree with this. It can be near impossible if you've got a busy sports schedule.

I was a bit naive coming from a bike racing background, where you can basically hammer yourself day after day and only worry about cardio and energy recovery. No one EVER injures a muscle on a bike, it just doesn't happen, regardless of the effort. You just get worn down, which compels you to take time off.

With hockey, if you're worn down / not recovered, you will eventually injure something.

I'm dealing with a recurring groin issue right now and it sucks beyond words.
