Hockey conditioning

Okay, im not interested in knowing what kind of work out you have (just to get that out of the way).

What i would like to know is, are there any books out there that specifically targets the hockey playing individual (that it be roller, ice or ball) for conditioning.

Im talking full on weight training advice, agility, stretching and nutrition.

I know i can find individual routines/advice on the subject, but i want to know if there's a book that contains all of them (or at least a majority) ???

I have this one by Peter Twist. It covers a lot of ground on ice, off ice, weight work, conditioning, nutrition.

your basic google search should produce at the very least some websites, if not some books via amazon. i remember once that someone here posted a fantastic link, but much to my dismay the site is saved on the desktop at my house, 160 miles away.

This is the original hockey training book, it was first used in the mainstream by Russian and European coaches, and is considered by many to be the reason for the Soviet's dominance during their peak years. Plus it has been somewhat updated with the latest training and systems...so its not exactly stale material.

It may be a bit more geared towards coaching though.

Here are a couple that I've read:

General training: 52-Week Hockey Training, by Don Macadam. This has a lot of good exercises for any hockey player.

Goalie specific: Hockey Goaltending, by Brian Daccord. Pretty much only a section or two on off-ice training. Book is a general basis for teaching the goaltending position with examples of styles and positioning in relation to the puck.

I will vouge for the book by Peter Twist. That was the first one that I read when I was 14 and it is full of great insights and off-ice training recommendations.

Daccord's book is good, I have it. It's also a bit outdated to modern goaltending and training regimens.
