The current week’s video is coming at you from the Toronto Maple Leafs practice office, highlighting the Buffalo Regals. I discovered them heating up their hands before their game, and inquired as to whether I could obtain them to help with a video idea I was taking a shot at. In the event that you need a superior vibe for the puck on your stick, this video is for you. Look at it.
Rehearsing with golf balls is an extraordinary method to heat up, figure out your recently taped stick, and for the most part get ready for a game. Perhaps the most ideal approaches to do this is to concentrate on various pieces of your cutting edge to stick handle with. You can concentrate on the toe, the center, the heel, and afterward the forehand, and the strike.
Something that I stole from Ron Johnson over at EliteHockeyScience (tail him on Instagram for truly inside and out hockey preparing) is taping a little classification onto your stick. In the event that you have dark tape, go through some white tape to part the various areas of your stick, that way you can concentrate on only one piece of the edge to stick handle with. This encourages you get a vibe of what it resembles to stick handle with that solitary part.
You can see that we’re attempting (now, in any case) to keep the golf ball just on the impact point of the sharp edge. The tape is there as direction. When you get settled with that, you’ll need to accelerate your stick taking care of too. At that point you move to the center of the edge, and afterward the toe.
From that point forward, you can have a go at something many refer to as the Yo-Yo Drill, which we exhibit in the video also. It works with all areas of your cutting edge, to improve your deftness, and your vibe for the puck. There’s something like the Yo-Yo Drill too, yet on the strike of the stick. You never just utilize one area of your stick in game, so we need to connect each bit, and do as much as we can to not be completing a move without precedent for a game circumstance. We likewise utilize a Side Work Down drill, which you can find in the video also.
