Our boy Josh MacDonald has been spending his summers with us since 2011. He stepped up from the Elmira Sugar Kings to a full career in the OHL and finally got his shot to turn pro with the Utah Grizzlies of the East Coast Hockey League (I know Utah is not on the east coast, but thanks anyway).
So to start his career, ol’ Josh scored two goals including the game winner. Not a bad start.
We are so proud of him – Josh is a guy who can play the game, but did not get anything handed to him – he worked hard, he worked consistently on the right things and found a way to take that next step.
So today, Josh and I are going to share on of our go-to exercises for helping hockey players build strong, stable skater’s legs.

We typically use this one during our max strength phase, so it is usually heavy with a low volume 3-4 sets of 4-6 reps on each leg.
Make sure your knee alignment is perfect – no letting that knee fall in!
PS – this one works for skiers, sprinters, soccer players, heck even volleyball and basketball players too 😉
