Henrik Zetterberg is one of the most dangerous offensive threats in the NHL. He uses his size to gain control of the puck along the boards and fight off larger defenders and his skill to deftly move the puck around the ice and create scoring opportunities.
Zetterberg performs the workout below in the off-season to increase his strength, skating speed and overall power on the ice. The workout includes lower-body exercises that generate powerful strides, strength moves that make him harder to knock off the puck and rotational core exercises that increase his shot power.
Workouts like this one have helped make Zetterberg one of the premier offensive players in hockey. Perform this workout once per week to become a strong and powerful player like Zetterberg.
