The Supple Six for Hockey Players

These 6 stretches are designed to target the tightest tissues that develop from playing hockey. The focus for these stretches are hips and protracted shoulders, which become tight from skating and stick handling with your hands in front of your body.

The stretches are:
1. Couch stretch
2. Double 90 degree Glute stretch
3. Heels down groin stretch
4. Hamstring Release
5. Pec Minor Deactivation
6. Shoulder internal rotation

Inspired be Joe DeFranco’s “Limber 11” and Kelly Starret’s “Becoming a Supple Leopard”, these six exercises (stolen from the best) target the tight tissues that rob hockey players of peak performance and injury free play. Enjoy version 1.0 of The Supple Six for Hockey Players.

Jason at Train 2.0

2.0 was born from the belief that 1.0 isn't good enough. The way we're approaching coaching, training, and development for hockey needs to be rethought. My own lessons have led me to rethink the way it's being done and I can't help but write about it. I'm writing for my 12, 13, 14, 15 year old self who didn't have this resource. I'm writing for parents who are putting their dollars and trust in coaches who are wasting all of it. I'm writing because I hope it can make a difference.
