Player Training

Ultimate Hockey Player Training

Hockey Development Expert Reveals his Secret Off-Ice Training System, and developing Explosive Players with Incredible Stamina!

Players are spinning their tires with training, they put in time at the gym, yet they don’t see the results they want on the ice. Most players today aren’t following a hockey-specific program if they’re following a program at all!

I have personally trained thousands of hockey players, from novices at the youth level to players competing at the professional level. The Ultimate Hockey Training System combines innovative training methods and injury-prevention strategies.  A training program that will help players achieve their best seasons ever.

The Ultimate Hockey Training System

The Ultimate Hockey Training is a step-by-step guide on how to train hockey players off the ice to improve on-ice performance.

Written so players, parents, and coaches can understand and implement the training strategies. Including advanced topics to broaden the training scope of even elite hockey players and conditioning specialists.

The power of this book comes from its comprehensiveness, not just a hockey speed training book or core training manual. This is the ultimate and comprehensive training system that will improve every aspect of a player’s performance!

In Ultimate Hockey Training, you’ll discover:

  • A detailed long-term hockey player development model with age-specific recommendations to help players fulfill their potential and achieve success
  • How you can avoid common downfalls of traditional warm-ups.
  • Why core training exercises like sit-ups, crunches, bicycles, leg throw downs, and supermans can actually impair hockey performance.
  • A scientific presentation of the neurophysiological downfalls of aerobic training.
  • The truth about whether hockey players should squat.
  • Program design strategies to maximize your improvements in muscular size and strength.
  • Learn how to alter your core training based on body position, load, volume, the predictability of movement, and time of the season.
  • It will teach you how to change your stretching methods depending on whether your muscles are short or stiff.
  • Strategies that will help avoid career ending/limiting hockey injuries, such as groin strains, hip flexor strains, hip labral tears, and sports hernias.
  • Step-by-step instruction on how to design age-appropriate year-round hockey training programs.

Listen to what the pros have to say!

“Kevin’s book is an extremely rare comprehensive look at the present state of ice hockey training. Without question, I highly recommend this for any strength and conditioning coach. Great insight for the beginning coach and super reminders for those of us that have been training for years.”

“Kevin has done a great job of authoring a comprehensive text for hockey performance training and player development in Ultimate Hockey Training. The training frame-work Kevin speaks about helps to create a training foundation. One that allows hockey players at all levels to establish new physical standards of performance, and a superior level of mental strength.

This book is a must-have for coaches and strength professionals at all levels of hockey.”

“If you are looking for a laundry list of exercises that may or may not help your athletes become better hockey players, then keep on looking. In this comprehensive text, Kevin Neeld has written the most complete guide available to help strength coaches, personal trainers, and even hockey players understand.

Not only what they need to do, but why they need to do it! Kevin has painstakingly drawn back the curtain of hockey training, exposing the myths (and there are a lot of them) and showing you the science behind a properly designed hockey training program. There has never been such a thorough and well thought out book on the topic and it will be extremely difficult for anyone to better this one. This one will remain close to my desk at the gym for years to come.”

“FINALLY I’ve found a book that summarizes everything I’ve learned over my last 35 years in the strength and conditioning industry. In Ultimate Hockey Training, author Kevin Neeld has provided a comprehensive blueprint. A blueprint of how a professional strength coach goes about designing a successful off ice training program.

Kevin lays it out in simple but thorough format and shows the reader all the basic factors that need to be taken into account when evaluating and customizing a long-term plan for his athletes.

The book covers a wide range of training aspects and progressions and outlines training at a very young age all the way up to the pro level. Many of the topics discussed are very complicated, but Kevin does a great job of explaining things in a simple way. And provides enough of the science involved to satisfy the more advanced reader.

Whether you’re a parent who is looking for the correct way to help your child develop as an athlete or a strength coach that deals with professional hockey players.

Ultimate Hockey Training will provide guidance to help you be successful. If only this book had been around when I first started!”
