Summer Hockey Training–Myths Part 1

Summer Training

Myths and Misconceptions

Summer is approaching fast and many players are starting to train hard for the upcoming season. We’ve seen and heard so many misconceptions about how to train, I decided to address some common mistakes and myths my colleagues and I have run into.

Athletes Who Train Too Much

Yes, I know it’s hard to believe, but some young bucks still believe more is better. Remember this common sense rule: Stress quality over quantity. Too many young hockey players come to SST for the summer thinking they should work out two or more hours in a single session every day of the week. This may sound great on paper, but in reality the body isn’t meant to endure such treatment. Don’t get me wrong, I am a firm believer in two-a-day workouts, but those workouts should be short and intense. Workouts should be no longer than one hour in length with a second workout about 4-6 hours later.


We, at SST, wish everyone a great summer and remind you to concentrate on your training. Please check out our website for more info about SST’s High Performance Summer Camp!
