Subban is pretty strong. He keeps getting bigger and I've seen some videos of him doing some pretty good lifts.

Powerlifting =/= Bodybuilding.

Body building.
Power lifting.

Nuance. Valid, though.

My point stands, massive upperbody power lifting likely doesn't carry much benefit to these guys.

Power lifting includes Bench pressing, Dead lifting and Squat. All core exercises. So yeah, they would benefit from it.

But its not based around that only, for sure.

Not to be a dick but a core move is a core move.

Deadlifts target mainly the posterior chain.

The only one that doesnt target lower body muscle is the benchpress... But yet again, it's an outstanding overall exercise.

Upper body is really important: Concussion protection, puck handling, shooting, skating, balance, hitting and receiving a hit all require outstanding upper body strength and explosiveness.

Senators Prospect Jean-Gabriel Pageau can apparently benchpress 650lbs, and squat 865lbs. I assume that's a lot.
He plays on Bingo now, but use to play for Gatineau in the Q

How about fighting for the puck along the boards. lifting sticks or preventing your stick from being lifted. I would think upper body strength matters a ton. Not as much as legs and core for most players, but still crucial.

There's this athletes palace place in Spruce Grove near Edmonton. They have the records for fastest 100m and lifting etc. and Iginla is holding most of them. The incredable part about it is athletes from all over, including EDM's pro sports teams, have been there.

Did players like Jagr and Crosby participate?

It has been known for years that Jagr was considered to be pound for pound the strongest player in the NHL.

I doubt he was stronger than Rod "the bod" Brind'Amour, Guy was a beast. But nothing compared to Pageau

Brind'Amour was ripped but being ripped means nothing at the end of the day when talking about pure strength.

At his biggest Brind'Amour was 6'1 and 205 lbs.

Jagr came into the league as an 18 year old and was already 6'2 and 200 lbs. In his peak, Jagr was 6'3 and 225-245 lbs. If you like I can repost the pictures I put up of Jagr earlier. He has the strongest legs and buttocks of any NHL player ever and he had a pretty big and strong upper body too.

This isn't sounding too good right now.

In agreeance:

Compound lifts are the label attributed to the power lifting category. Squat, Deadlift, Benchpress, Rows, Overhead Press...as well as all of their variations. Arnold actually did an AMA recently and reinforced those particular lifts and added chin-ups to that exact repertoire.

Upper body is very important. Particularly for injury prevention in the shoulder. Its most impactful area in regards to performance is undoubtedly board play. There was a thread a few years ago where a poster claimed bench had no real bearing on strength...couldn't be further from the truth (granted, squat is undoubtedly the most important exercise across most professional sports).

I'd also like to point out that some of these squat numbers are ho-hum for athletes. I'm nowhere near an athlete and I can squat 485lbs 3 X 3...granted none of my other lifts are near as impressive...however, if you pop over to most fitness orrieted boards you'll find average people who implore a 5 X 5 (or pyramid variation) compound lifting program that jettisons them from squating 75% of their body weight to (on avg) 2/2.5X in about a year's time.

St Louis Blues strength trainer, Nelson Ayotte, recently did a Q & A where he told the story of an ex Blue who he tricked into squatting 495lbs 3 x 3 with him thinkings it was 250...that should provide some bearing on how much the stronger players are lifting.

But it makes dead lifting very easy... Which is what most people can put the most weight up with.. I'm voting Chara... He used to powerlift and as a competitor I'd bet he can pull close to 700.

As someone else mentioned, 400 lbs isn't a lot to squat, even for MSL who's very short ( good for squatting) and weighs like 200? I'm 5'9" 193 ( probably similar to MSL) and I squat 550. I would guess that most NHL players over the age of 25 squat at least that much.

You sound very similar to me.. I just hit 385 in USAPL at 181 lbs, there's no way in hell Letang is even close to that, you can just tell by looking at him.

Where did you get that pic?
It's not Pageau.

The dude is probably 160lbs.







And gotta love people confusing ''strongest player'' with ''most ripped player''. People posting pictures of guys in bare chest and ****.

Regardless if thats Peageau or not. I doubt any man in the NHL can bench 650 or squat 865 lol.. That is some ridiculous power lifting numbers that most enhanced power lifters can't do.
