    season starts in the beginning of march & goes through the end of aug. i'm doing pickup games twice a week now, & going pretty easy on training my legs. i started doing a bb routine again a while ago, instead of cp. but i guess i'll start the skinny bastards westside adaptation once the season starts.

    I'm starting to feel like a 5x5 routine was more adaptive to hockey strength as opposed to the usual 3x8. Could be in my head though.

    when i started lifting last year, i was hurting during offensive rushes. this year i'm looking forward to that extra kick from sticking to the same routine. rollerhockey starts in april.

    Bump.

    I started hockey tonight after ~10 years and I've been pretty out of shape for about a year.

    Has anyone read any of the hockey training/fitness books out there? There are quite a few at B&N/Borders. I'm thinking about picking one up because tonight kicked my ass :o

    i still havent found the ultimate in leg conditioning for powerful skating for longer periods of time :hs:

    first period - a little shaky, good bursts of speed
    2nd period - sweet, plenty of legs
    3rd period - pretty good for about 10-15mins, then CONCRETE LEGS :o

    When training for sports, you use the offseason to get in shape for the upcoming season. The goal of in-season training is injury prevention and recovery, not for getting stronger or increasing endurance.

    that's how it is for me too, it's cause of our body type's prolly.

    i have to more or less 'bulk' just to try to maintain with all the inplied cardio the season comes with.

    i think i'm switching back to goalie in march, which should help that.

    When your legs die are you cramping up or are the muscles getting fatigued? Do you still have wind?

    I always had that problem too, I was not able to eat enough to keep weight on. 5k-6k daily and I was still dropping weight. This past season I used a little assistance and actually put on a few pounds while leaning up slightly.

    How much ice time are you getting and what position do you play?

    i play scrimmage on monday nights for an hour, play a game of off-season league on thursday, and pretty soon will be training for junior A on sundays. i play forward.. (c)

    when offseason ends soon, the offseason league ends and i'll play once or twice a weekend for junior A

    Try upping your scrimmage tempo. You'll get burned out faster in the scrimmage but you'll probably last a lot longer during actual games. A lot of NHLers like to hop on the bike after games as well to reduce the lactic acid in their legs, its supposed to help in recovery.

    I find that hitting the interval training hard is the best for helping lactic acid issues. Up your speed and you will up lactic acid tolerance. At 2 games per week, you can probably get in about 2 sessions of interval training per week without killing game performance.

    Also, if you want to use supplements, taking some Tums before the game will help buffer the lactic acid.
