Hockey specific exercises

Here’s a couple of great clips from YouTube that show gym exercises that can help hone your body especially for playing hockey.

The second clip is aimed at ice-hockey players, but I gather that the exercises translate to field hockey too.

The player in the first clip makes easy meat of what, to be honest, look like pretty tough workout drills. Unfortunately, there’s no info on exactly how often you should do these and whether you should repeat them. But, from working at a fitness writer at Health & Fitness magazine, for years, it’s usually 10-12 reps during a workout session and repeat a couple of times. The general recommendation for ordinary folk, rather than high performance Olympians, is two to three strength training sessions a week.
