  • Discuss in detail on the 3 biggest concepts of off ice training – Eccentric Strength, Isometric Strength and Plyometric Strength
  • Eccentric Strength: and eccentric strength refers to Eccentric strength refers to tension being applied to a muscle as it lengthens.
  • Isometric Strength: Isometric exercises are specific contractions of a particular muscle or group of muscles. During isometric exercises, the muscle doesn’t noticeably change length and the affected joint doesn’t move. Isometric exercises have been known to also help maintain strength.
  • Plyometric Strength: Plyometrics, also known as jump training or plyos, are exercises in which muscles exert maximum force in short intervals of time, with the goal of increasing power.
  • Vision or Brain training using modalities like concentration grids, neurotrackers, swivel vision glasses, hecostix, blurry glasses etc. Small Sized Goaltender – RESULTS MATTER, NOT SIZE and OBSTACLE IS THE WAY!
  • Quote: “This [is a] notion that the obstacles that prevent us from achieving our goals can be used—and in some cases may even be necessary—to achieve those very goals – seems not just Pollyanna-like but also paradoxical. If an obstacle lies in our way, how can it possibly be used to achieve our goal?
  • The answer may be different depending on the obstacle itself. Sometimes, for example, failure itself is a benefit—failure that forces us to pursue an alternative path we wouldn’t have otherwise considered but that turns out to be the best way, if not sometimes the only way, to achieve a goal.” end quote
