Think You Need To Spend Hours In The Gym To Gain Momentum As The Hockey Season Wears On? You Couldn’t Be More Wrong. More Gym Time Will Make You Slower And Vulnerable To Injury.

Discover How The Right In-season Training Will Actually Have You Skating Faster, Hitting Harder, And Adding Points To Your Stats Game After Game.

From Maria L. Mountain, MSc, Certified Exercise Physiologist, Founder, HockeyTrainingPro.com

Here’s the secret most trainers don’t want you to know…

Almost ANY training works.

Yup, that’s right. Even a crappy training program has a good chance of making you stronger and maybe even faster on the ice… when you’re just starting out, that is.

It’s kind of like hitting your thumb with a hammer. You pinch it and rub it to make it feel better.

This novel stimulus creates a positive response for a bit, and then your thumb starts to throb again.

The same thing happens with training. Almost any training will improve your performance for a bit, until the novelty wears off and what you’re doing just doesn’t work anymore.

So maybe you did a crappy training program in the off-season? Don’t feel bad. Some players reading this didn’t invest the time and energy into ANY off-season program at all, so they are WAY behind you.

If that IS you, don’t worry.

What you do next is far more important than what you’ve been doing (or not doing) for the last few months.

Just keep reading.

Don’t Get Left Behind As Your Season Fizzles

There’s this thing called the In-Season Effect. I’ll tell you all about it in a minute, but for now, let’s just say it is NOT GOOD.

Before we get to the nasty details, I want to tell you a bit about one of my elite online training members. He’s a forward named Matt.benched

Matt was always a reliable second- or third-liner, who usually got good ice time with the teams he played on, averaging 12-17 minutes per game.

About three weeks before his team tryouts, he contacted me in a panic. He’d played with the same group of guys (his best friends) since he was a 6-year-old peewee. Last season he’d started out strong, but as the season went on, he found himself half a step behind all the time. Soon, he was taking more penalties and watching his points stall on the game log.

It happened so gradually that he didn’t really understand what was going on until it was too late. By the playoffs, he spent most of his time grinding on the 4th line or sitting on the bench. And that’s OK, every team needs grinders.

But Matt didn’t want to be a grinder; he wanted to get recruited to play at a higher level. Instead, he was on the verge of an anxiety attack because he wasn’t sure he would even make the team this year.

Matt was suffering from the In-Season Effect.

Just What Is The In-Season Effect?

You start the season off strong, performing well at try-outs and earning your rightful spot on the team. During, the first few games you’re looking great, playing well, and earning lots of respect from your teammates.

Then you have a couple off nights.

This is where the excuses start.

“Well, we were playing a really good team, I guess it just must have been their night.”

OR

“No one on our team was playing great, we just blew that one.”

You shrug it off.

Off-nights DO happen, even with the pros.

But if you find yourself making more and more excuses for your play as the season wears on, you might be suffering from the In-Season Effect. Luckily, this is a curable disease.

First, you just have to recognize that you have it. Then we can start in on the fix.

Even better, let’s practice some prevention so it never happens to you at all.

First let’s look at the cause. It could be one of two things:

  • You think your off-ice work is done once the puck drops on the season, even if your team does off-ice training together.
  • You think you need to train as hard during the season as you did during the off-season.

Those are two ends of the spectrum, but they have the same outcome.

Your performance goes downhill as the season picks up.

You end up skating back to the bench slamming your stick on the ice in frustration. Your teammates won’t meet your eye. The only people who will look at you are the coaches, and they don’t look happy.

Stop Neglecting Your Speed and Power

Exercise physiology tells us that players can sustain their stamina much better than they can sustain their speed and power. So, if your only in-season training consists of a team off-ice workout once or twice a week, chances are your training is actually making you slower.

Most team off-ice training I’ve seen (and I’ve seen a lot) is circuit-style, where you do weights or cardio for 30-60 seconds and then move on to the next station. You might be working your butt off in these sessions, but it is STAMINA training.

Stamina training will not make you faster.

Now think about your on-ice practices. Do you ever get ‘skated’ or ‘bag skated’? That is STAMINA training.ripped

Do you do drills or have scrimmages in practice that leave you bent over with your hands on your knees? That is STAMINA training.

Don’t misunderstand. I’m not saying stamina training is bad.

Stamina training is great! It’s a key ingredient to your success and thankfully most of you are already getting plenty of it.

Here’s what you’re NOT getting

You can do circuits and killer drills until you puke, but none of that makes you faster or more powerful.

(And please don’t say “we do squat jumps during our team off-ice”. If you’re doing more than 10 seconds of jumps, that is STAMINA training.)

What you’re not getting is the right work to build your speed and power, while leaving your body enough recovery time to stay sharp.

Want to accomplish all of this, even while spending less time in the gym?

But I’m Already Working So Hard!

That’s great. You value hard work and that’ll help you in so many parts of your life. But your work ethic may rob you of your chance to get noticed in the play-offs, when the stands are full of family, friends, and even scouts.

Your teammates and coaches might respect your work ethic. You might swell with pride when your trainer tells your Dad that you’re a “total animal” in the gym

But no one gets awarded play-off MVP because of how hard they workout. To do that, you’ve gotta put points on the board and help your team win.

Instead of helping you get better, all that sweat you pour into your training sessions could actually be making you slower and moving you away from your goals.

If you’re spending more than 60 minutes per gym session, chances are you’re adding to your stress – and I don’t just mean the emotional stress of trying to fit these marathon workouts into the rest of your busy life. (Do you ever feel like you’re juggling five flaming torches?)

I’m talking about the physical stress that games and practices put on your body. It can be HUGE.

Think about it like this…

Say you go to the doctor and they write you prescription for pain medication. You ask how much to take and she says “Ahh, just take as much as you can handle.” Are you worried about the competence of that doctor yet? You should be.

What you want is for the doctor to tell you exactly how much to take and when to take it. You don’t want to take a bunch for good measure, you want to know the minimum effective dose.

The same goes for your In-Season Hockey Training.

Remember my client Matt? In his panicked state, Matt was ready to work as hard as he could to get on that team. In reality, that overdose of exercise probably would have been led him down a painful road to getting cut.

What we did instead was to create a plan that hit the Minimum Effective Dose of the right workouts. These workouts got him ready for tryouts (with less sweat and less stress) and helped him gain momentum as the season wore on.

Instead of watching his ice time, stats, and opportunities dwindle, he felt better and better on the ice each week. His confidence swelled as his speed and power increased, and he played with more of an edge while worrying less about making mistakes.

We set up a positive cascade for him, to prevent him becoming a victim to a downward spiral (like some of his teammates did).

Here’s how we did it…

Introducing the IN-SEASON HOCKEY SOLUTION

You have never seen a training program like the IN-SEASON HOCKEY SOLUTION. Even my other programs are based on off-season training, giving you a scaled-back schedule that will work for the in-season.

The IN-SEASON HOCKEY SOLUTION gives you the minimum effective dose of the right stuff so you can get the recovery you need to last an entire season.

Training hard with a shotgun approach (a bit of this, some of that, better do a few of these just to make sure) not only makes you slower, but it also leaves you vulnerable to injury after injury.

If you are constantly injured, the coaching staff is going to be finding someone to replace you in the lineup.

Take The Guesswork Out Of Your Workout

So how exactly do you fit the IN-SEASON HOCKEY SOLUTION with your practice and game schedule (not to mention the rest of your hectic life)?

It’s totally simple.

Training Schedule Templates let you know exactly when to workout

In-Season Hockey Solution product
The Training Schedule Templates cover various scenarios, so you can customize the system to your schedule (not the other way around).

Have two games and two practices per week? There is a template for that.
Have one game and three practices per week? There is a template for that.
Have weekend tournaments? You guessed it; there is a template for that.

You get 112 days worth of workout plans!

A $27 value

The Base Workout gives you benefits in 20 minutes

I bet you have weeks that get so busy you hardly have any time at all to fit in a workout. That’s why the In-Season Hockey Solution is built around Base Modules that deliver the minimum dose of mobility, strength, and speed. They will only take about 20 minutes out of your busy schedule per workout and you will still see benefits on the ice.

You get 16 weeks worth of training plans and I tell you what to do once you get to the end.

A $788 value (I earn $197 per month for program design)

Add-On Modules let you target your problem areas

Realistically, if we’re serious about our game, most days we can squeeze in more than 20 minutes per workout. Each Add-On module can be added to the base workout to let you focus on your own specific weaknesses.

Have tight hips? Add a mobility module.
Feeling sluggish? Add a strength/stability module.
Feeling exhausted? A recovery module is just what you need.

Why Should You Trust Your Season’s Success To Me?

I’ve had the great pleasure of working with lots of you over the years, but for those of you who are new to my off-ice goalie training systems, I am Maria Mountain, MSc, a Certified Exercise Physiologist and hockey strength and conditioning specialist.

Don’t worry; I’m not some self-styled internet guru who has never trained anyone besides their Mom and their best friend just before dropping out of college.

I’ve been training athletes for more than 20 years and have had the opportunity to help them achieve their goals and live their dreams. For some this has included Olympic gold medals, a Stanley Cup win, and World Championship medals. For others, like you, it means taking that next critical step toward reaching your true potential.

I make my living by applying the science of human performance to the art of program design and coaching. Yes, that’s right, I earn my living running Revolution Conditioning in London, Ontario, Canada. I am in the gym every day guiding athletes step-by-step through a proven system.

My special passion for helping goalies win more games with fewer injuries motivated me to start the HockeyTrainingPro.com website.

The more I heard about how you were training – using ‘As Seen On TV’ 90-minute training programs created for the average Joe or ‘Workout Of The Day’ programs that break your body down workout after workout after workout – the more I wanted to help.

You emailed me when you were continually getting injured, even though you were working so hard off the ice. Then you started asking for step-by-step training programs. You didn’t want to leave your training to chance; you wanted to follow a proven system. I pack the same knowledge and systems I use with the athletes in my gym into my online training programs.

Don’t Just Take My Word For It…

“After using the system for as little as two weeks, my body feels better and recovers faster after games. I’ve also improved my range of motion and stamina.”
Mark

Bottom line, get the program, follow the program and YOU WILL see IMPROVEMENT! Maria is always working on her game to help the player and goalie alike. She is constantly learning new techniques and passing that knowledge along. She genuinely cares about us athletes, no matter what the age.
Scott Taylor

The program is simple to follow and specific to my needs. The fact that Maria doesn’t just focus on muscle development and encompasses the importance of balance and stability so you can use the strength you have has made my skating ability that much better.

Out of all the work outs I have done, none have improved my game in as short a time frame as Marias training. My endurance, speed and flexibility showed improvement after only one week.
Lyle LaFont

It is important for me to have a schedule to follow otherwise I wouldn’t know where to start. So the programme has helped me a lot to get stronger and more flexible by telling me when to do which exercise.
Johanna Stabinger

Maria Mountain has the all the dedication to improve you as a goalie or a player all you have to say is “YES”! Great programs, thoughtful insight and real results.
Lou M

My teammates recently said they are impressed by how my level of play has improved over the last few months. They know I have been doing training and they said whatever I am doing is working, and to keep it up!
Lauren F

I’m 35 years old and have used two of Maria’s programs. Since using the programs, my game has improved and I have not had one muscle related injury. The programs were easy to follow and delivered results.

I Personally Guarantee Your Success

That’s why I am putting all the risk squarely on my shoulders and offer you a
60-Day No Questions Asked FULL Money Back GUARANTEE.

Even if you are just too ‘busy’ (READ: lazy) to actually do the training I will still gladly give you 60-days to get ALL your money back. At least you’ll know that being a better hockey player is not a priority for you right now and that’s a pretty valuable lesson.

money back guarantee

The answers to your questions. I know you have questions…

Q: Is this workout suitable for my 10-year old?

Answer: No, heck no! I think you are getting a little carried away here. Let’s let kids be kids for a few more years and just have fun playing the ‘game’. Instead of making them train alone in the basement, get them out the door playing street hockey with their friends.

Q: Do I need a bunch of fancy equipment?

Answer: No, you don’t, but you do need a few dumbbells and some resistance bands that you can find at almost any sports store (I even see them at my local grocery store) or order online. I guarantee you there is no hockey player out there playing to their potential who didn’t use a few dumbbells or resistance bands to get there.

Q: I see that one of your clients won the Stanley Cup – is that a typical result?

Answer: Don’t I wish it were! The truth is that not everyone is going to make it to the NHL or junior or college. Some do, but many don’t. We don’t all have the ingredients required, BUT anyone can perform better and work to their potential with the right training.

Q: I don’t have a gym membership. Where will I do the workouts?

Answer: Just like you don’t need a lot of fancy equipment, you also don’t need a gymnasium to do your workouts. The floor of your bedroom, the basement, your garage – any of these will do.

Q: Would you please send me a hard copy in the mail?

Answer: Sorry, I don’t make hard copies of my programs. The printing and shipping costs jack the price way up (like triple). Plus, I like to think my digital-only style does a little something for Planet Earth.

Q: Can I access the program from my portable device?

Answer: If you know how to open a PDF or click on a link to view a video, then YES, absolutely. If however you are completely mobile-illiterate, this program will not magically make you more competent. ☺ I think there are probably other programs to do that.

Q: Can I just send you a cheque for the program? I hate buying things online.

Answer: I know we have all been burned by buying something online that doesn’t live up to our expectations; it has happened to me too. This is why I put all the risk squarely on my shoulders with the No Questions Asked No Hassle 60-Day Full Money Back Guarantee.

If you’re worried about security, rest assured that I use Clickbank.com, a fully proven secure partner, to handle all those privacy and security issues keeping your money and your personal details safe.

Q: Can I save the program to my hard drive?

Answer: Again, if you are computer literate and know how to ‘Right Click > Save As…’ then you will be fine. The training manual is in PDF format and includes links to all the videos. The videos are also hosted on the website if that is easier for you.

Q: I already have a workout I really like. Why should I switch?

Answer: Great question and the answer is ‘maybe you shouldn’t. If you are getting better and better performance on the ice throughout each season, if you are keeping the injury bug at bay, if you are achieving your goals and living your dreams as a hockey player already, then keep doing what you are doing! If, however, you seem to be falling a bit short or slowly losing ground, it might be time for a change. You have nothing to lose.

Q: I was told I shouldn’t strength train during the season. Is that wrong?

Answer: In a word – YES.

The ‘Reader’s Digest’ Version
  • The secret that most trainers don’t want you to know is that almost ANYTHING works when you are a young player starting out – even a crappy program that includes a ‘chest’ day and has you on the leg press. This changes dramatically as you get older and play at higher levels.
  • Most hockey players either train too little or too much during the season which causes them to suffer from the In-Season Effect which is basically a gradual decline in performance as the season progresses. By the time players see what is going on, the play-offs are on the doorstep and it is too late to fix it.
  • Item #3
  • Other teams will exploit your weaknesses, so if you notice that the play comes to your side of the ice more often than not, you might be showing signs of the In-Season Effect.
  • I created the IN-SEASON HOCKEY SOLUTION because I know you cannot all work privately with me in the Revolution Gym (let alone afford the $150/hour fee).
  • Most of you get sufficient stamina training on the ice and with your team, so your personal focus needs to be on strength, speed, and staying healthy.
  • The IN-SEASON HOCKEY SOLUTION delivers the minimum effective dose you need to keep or build your speed as the season progresses. It also gives you the mobility and stability necessary to minimize your risk of injury.
  • The flexible training schedule lets you know when and how much to train during your easy weeks. It also has a plan for those hectic weeks when you have a game on Tuesday and a tournament Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
  • The IN-SEASON HOCKEY SOLUTION is NOT suitable for players under the age of 14.
    You only need a few pairs of dumbbells and some resistance bands to do the workouts – no gym membership required.
  • The program is entirely downloadable, no hard copy is sent in the mail.
  • Like all of my other programs, this one works, but it still comes with the 60-Day No Questions Asked No Hassle FULL Money Back Guarantee.
