The better in shape you are, the better you feel. The better you feel, the better you can play. It really is that simple. Summer events are hot and fast paced. You want to make sure your lungs and legs feel good to help you preform on the rink. If you are short on time and you have not spent a lot of time working on balance/stabilization and building strength/powerand getting your core dialed in…try doing some interval work. It can be done in skates, on a bike or in shoes. The concept is easy…establish a moderate pace and every 30-60-or 90 seconds, take off and sprint. Simulate a game with rapid energy burstsand then focus on breathing/recovery and getting your hear rate back down. This training method can be very effective in building your base and helping you beprepared for the energy production of a tournament!!!
