    The 5 Basics for Solid Hockey Nutrition

  • That’s How We Roll

    That’s How We Roll

    The latest hockey trend since the “flow” is rolling. Rolling is normally done with foam rollers, but also with balls of different size and hardness. Rolling has its origins in physio and massage therapy and is a self-myofascial release (MSR) technique, meaning you are giving yourself a massage. Because it’s so easy to do, it has made its way to our gyms, our homes and now our rinks.

  • Yoga for Hockey Players

    Yoga for Hockey Players

    Yoga for hockey is a relatively new thing. Fifteen years ago, very few players or NHL teams included yoga in their conditioning programs. Today, yoga is a key component of many successful hockey programs. But there are many varieties of yoga practices and not all of them are suitable or beneficial for hockey.
