While no one knows if there will be an NHL season this year, hockey players need to be ready. It's important to choose the right pre-season workouts, or you could leave yourself at a serious disadvantage.

At this time of year, hockey players should be finishing their off-season training and beginning their pre-season workouts. The primary goal of pre-season workouts is to maintain off-season strength gains without excessive fatigue, injury or overtraining. (Learn more about overtraining.)

This is also the time to start getting into game shape, so you can skate for a full shift without losing quickness, shot speed or checking power.

Below are three pre-season hockey workouts that will prepare you for the start of your season. It's best to use a rep range of eight to 10 to begin building muscle endurance and conditioning.
