Personally, I think squats are a little safer but you still really need to be careful with technique. Knee injuries are possible if you really aren't sure of it 100%. I think the best thing for hockey is plyometrics, and if you need to gain weight, do it very gradually, with a better focus on less intensity weight and more reps. That's a good idea for long-term lean mass, but takes more time.

6'1 and 165lb at age 14 is a good playing weight. I'd be surprised if you weren't one of the biggest and heaviest guys on your team.

My stats are as follows: I tested on January 1st, will update them in 3 or 6 months.

Bench Press: 175lbs max
Squat: 295lbs max, this is with really good form, I could do more if not using form
Deadlift: 260lbs, I have stop doing these for the time being.
Mile Run: 4:31, I won't update this stat as I'm going to be starting up sprinting, even though I was pretty good long distance running. It kills muscle and I would say sprints are definitly more suited for hockey. I won't update this stat as I'm done long distance for now. Btw I really hate doing the 400m sprint, 100m and 200m are okay, but 400m is killer.
This number seems a little off if remember my times correctly. When i was 13 (12 years ago) I traveled all over the U.S. for track&field and actually placed 9th in the nation in the mile run for the Jr. Olympics. I'm almost positive that my time was like 5:00 or close to that. Hard to believe that u beat this time by around 30 seconds...unless you train extensively for the mile, I think your timing has to be off.

Dont want to come across as bragging, but I came third at the Ontario provincials last year in the 13-14 age catagory for cross country running.

Cripes .... 6ft 1in at 14. he has more height to grow too and will probably be 6ft 6in or more.

At 15 I grew about a foot in one year. I had terrible knee and joint pain though for that year and a half.

This guy is gonna be a tall one if that happens to him .... 6ft 1in at 14! man!

He will easily be at least 6ft 6in if not more.

I have a brother who is 6'5" and apparently I'm a good inch or two bigger than he was at my age.

Agreed! Hit the plyometrics and foot speed. You're probably already bigger/stronger than most the kids you play with.

Well to be fair, I was about 6 feet on the dot at age 14, and I only grew to be about 6'2... though I've gotten a little taller, and may actually be 6'3 now (here's hoping!) Of course, I was plagued with medical illnesses which could have in all likelihood stunted my growth (according to the docs, it limited my muscle development).

I think what's more impressive is his muscle mass at that age... I know some guys my age (21, not athletes) who are about the same height, and weigh in at a meager 120-140lb.


Stay healthy and you'll be a giant... just remember to protect those knees!

I'd just talk to your coach and do what he says.
