Strength and Conditioning on the Road in Professional Hockey

Sean Skahan

Strength and Conditioning Coach

Company Name
Minnesota Wild

One of the hardest things to do while on the road with a professional hockey team is to get strength training sessions in. 
It is already very difficult to get quality strength training in while at home.  Whether it is a one-game road trip or a 5-game road trip, training on the road is very challenging.
When I first started working in the professional environment in 2002, I would bring our own foam rollers, bands, and other smaller items to with help us with getting our players prepare for games and implement rehab protocols. I would borrow a pair of dumbbells from the home team and try to get some strength training in with our healthy scratches and injured players.  (Healthy scratches are those players who may be with the team but not playing in the game (scratched)).
Sometimes, we would go to a local gym or heath club and do the best we could to replicate a team training session.  Although these weren't the best situations, we did the best we could.
When the season started after the lockout in 2013, there was a rule put in place that every team needed to provide the visiting team with strength and conditioning equipment. PowerBlock assembled a cart that was easily transportable that contains several pieces of equipment that allows the Strength and Conditioning Coach to implement better training sessions while on the road. 
Perform Better provided the equipment for the cart which contains:
  • 1 barbell
  • 2-45 lb. and 2-25 lb. plates
  • kettlebells
  • foam rollers
  • mini bands
  • Bosu ball
  • agility ladder
  • lacrosse balls
  • stability balls
  • 2 pairs of adjustable dumbbells (up to 50lbs each)
  • and other smaller items. ........Join to keep reading.......
