Previous Next

• Lie with back on bench, holding dumbbells near front of shoulders
• Drive dumbbells to ceiling until arms are fully extended
• Lower dumbbells to start position; repeat for specified reps

Reps: 20
Coaching Points: Bring dumbbells down as deep as possible with control // Bring dumbbells together at the top of the movement // Keep core tight // Inhale on the way down; exhale on the way up
Dr. Moreau: There is a lot of pushing and shoving in hockey, battling for position and the puck on the ice. Upper-body strength will come into play then.
