Speed Training hockey
Unlike other training programs that are borrowed from unrelated sports and training pursuits, Speed Training for Hockey is designed specifically for the unique demands of hockey.
Every aspect of the program – from the dynamic warm-up, to the speed and power drills, strength training, conditioning, and cool-down – is tailored not only to maximize on-ice performance, but also to maximize durability and minimize risk to unnecessary injuries.
In keeping with the principles of long-term athletic development, the training programs are designed for specific age groups to target the major hurdles players at different ages face in maximizing their neurological, skeletal, muscular, and hormonal development.
In addition to the programs included in Speed Training For Hockey, the book also addresses many of the myths surrounding speed training, strength development, and conditioning, and explains the science and research underlying every method I propose.
I know reading (or listening to others explain) research can get pretty stale, quickly, so I've made an effort to minimize scientific jargon, and explain these powerful concepts in language that any player, parent, or coach can understand.
With Speed Training for Hockey, you'll not just know "what" you need to do to train effectively to maximize on-ice speed, you'll also understand the “why” behind all of the training methods.
Here’s what other top strength coaches have to say about my methods:
In my mind Kevin Neeld is one of the top 5-6 strength and conditioning coaches in the ice hockey world. It’s not often I turn to younger coaches for advice, but Kevin is a guy I count on to be on top of all the latest info, and to use it with his athletes.Michael Boyle Owner, Mike Boyle Strength and Conditioning
Kevin Neeld brings a fresh and innovative perspective to Hockey strength and conditioning. He continues to push the envelope with his current ideas and methods which is something that hockey needs.Sean Skahan Strength and Conditioning Coach, Minnesota Wild
Kevin Neeld has one of the brightest minds in performance enhancement for hockey athletes. His ability to disseminate research and text books into practical knowledge is outstanding. I’ve implemented things that he’s written and spoken about to help my hockey athletes compete for championships. Kevin is one of the best and if you want to be the best, he’s one that you have to train with.Brijesh Patel Head Strength and Conditioning Coach, Quinnipiac UniversityCLICK ON THE IMAGE TO TAKE A PEAK
