They then cross that same foot behind the lead leg, turning their hips back in the direction they came from and repeat that pattern as they continue to move laterally. 4 x 10 meters 4 x 10 meters each way 4 x 10 meters each way 4 Movements, 4 Times Each Perform these 4 movements one after the other.

29 SIMPLE STRETCHING ROUTINE The four most critical muscle groups for players to stretch are: Hip Flexors (where the front of the thigh attaches to the hip) Quadriceps (front of the thigh) Glutes (butt) Groin (inside of the thighs) Perform the 4 stretches below immediately after your workout or before going to bed. Hold each stretch for at least 1 minute. If it is a one-sided stretch, hold it for 1 minute on each side. This program should take less than 10 minutes total and will really help to loosen up the muscles that get over-used throughout the season. NOTE: Players should not be straining or bouncing to try and move further into the stretch. The goal of stretching is NOT to go as far as possible but rather to stretch as far as is necessary in order to feel the muscle lengthening while remaining relaxed. Kneeling Hip Flexor Stretch Purpose: Elongate the hip flexors Start out in a kneeling position with both knees at a 90 degree angle. Pull your arms straight up overhead, squeezing your biceps by your ears. Lean your weight forward slightly on your front leg and pull your hands up towards the ceiling to increase the stretch through the front of the back leg. Make sure that you aren t leaning back but instead thinking about making yourself as tall as possible. Hold for 1 minute on each side. Side Lying Quadriceps Stretch Purpose: Elongate the hip flexors and quadriceps This stretch is a little tricky to get into initially, but does a terrific job of stretching out the hip flexor and quadriceps of the leg that is being pulled back. Start lying on your side and grab on underneath the knee of the leg that is closest to the floor. Reach back and grab the shin or foot of the top leg and pull your heel towards your buttocks. Make sure that you stay on your side and aren t pulling yourself over onto your back. To increase the stretch, squeeze the glute (butt) of your top leg and push your hips forward slightly. Hold for 1 minute each side. total female hockey

30 SIMPLE STRETCHING ROUTINE Kneeling Figure 4 Glute Stretch Purpose: Elongate the external rotators of the hip This is a stretch that is commonly performed on the ice and is equally effective when performed off the ice. Start out in a kneeling position and use your hand to pull one leg into the bent position with the outside of your knee touching the floor. Straighten out your back leg behind you. If you are unable to position your front leg at 90 degrees, you can move your front heel closer to your hips. Make sure that you are not rolling out onto the side of the front leg and that your hips are even relative to the floor. Hold for 1 minute on each side. Knees Wide Groin Stretch Purpose: Elongate the hip adductors (groin) Start out on your hands and knees. Slowly move your knees as wide apart as possible while keeping your toes pointing out to the side. Use your hands to support yourself in this position and push your body back towards your feet slightly to increase the stretch. If this bothers your knees, bring your feet closer together. Hold for 1 minute. total female hockey

31 QUESTION & ANSWER Question: How does Game Shape FAST improve players performance? Answer: The workouts in Game Shape FAST have been designed to address the hockeyspecific conditioning needs of players by using exercises that mimic the movements and intensity needed to be optimally prepared to start the season. Question: How does Game Shape FAST help players avoid injuries? Answer: By simulating the movements and intensity of a hockey shift, the circuit workouts in Game Shape FAST will help you to avoid the injuries that typically plague players at the start of the season, such as groin pulls, hip flexor strains and low back pain. When players start the season off in great hockey-specific shape, they are much better prepared for the high-intensity and unpredictability of the game. Question: Where should players do these workouts? Answer: These workouts can be done in the park, in the parking lot or anywhere that you can safely perform the strength movements and have ample room to run the various sprint distances. I recommend bringing an exercise mat or towel out to the workouts so that players don t need to worry about getting their hands or elbows dirty on the ground. Question: How do I to extend the program into the start of the season? Answer: Game Shape FAST can easily be used to guide off-ice conditioning sessions in training camp and into the early season. Building hockey-specific strength and conditioning off the ice should be done all year around - just make sure that your players are getting enough opportunity to recover from on-ice and off-ice sessions so that they can perform their best. total female hockey

32 QUESTION & ANSWER Question: My players can t do proper push-ups. Should I just have them do the best push-ups they can or should I modify the exercise? Answer: Unfortunately, many young players don t have the upper body strength or core stability needed to perform push-ups properly. Never let players do bad push-ups. If you need to modify the exercise so that they can do it with great form, have them do the push-ups from a kneeling position instead of being up on their toes. Question: Why do the shuttle sprint distances change from a 50 meter distance to a 25 meter distance? Is one harder than the other? Answer: The 150 meter shuttle run at a 25 meter distance (25 meters x 6) is much more challenging than for players than when it is run at a 50 meter distance (50 meters x 3). Running the shuttle at the shorter distance requires players to stop & start and change direction much more often which is much harder for both the muscular and cardiovascular systems. Question: I already have the Complete Off-Season Training Program. How is Game Shape FAST different? Answer: The main focus of each of these two off-season training programs are different. While the Complete Off-Season Training Program focuses more on building a foundation of strength, speed and stamina over the course of the entire summer, Game Shape FAST focuses more on developing hockey-specific conditioning in just 4 weeks. total female hockey
