NYU Ice Hockey Winter Training Program
By Karl Orishimo MS, CSCS and Tak Fukunaga DPT, ATC, CSCS
As you enjoy your winter vacation away from school and team practices, we want you to keep up with your fitness, so that you can come back strong and healthy in January. These exercise programs have been designed to maintain your strength, coordination, power, and cardiopulmonary fitness.
Your training consists of two programs:
- Strengthening and plyometric training
- Interval training
These two programs are outlined in charts below. Each program should be done 2 times per week. Ideally, the two programs are done on separate days, meaning you would have 4 workout days per week. In a busy week, both the strengthening and interval training can be done on the same day (in this case, interval training must be done before strengthening).
