Agility Drill For Post-To-Post Speed (And Back Again)

Agility Drill For Post-To-Post Speed (And Back Again)

One of the many things I love about being a goalie training specialist is the complexity of the movement patterns.  You don’t just need the standard north, south, east, west movements, you also need to train your ‘up-down’ movement pattern.

I created this drill to work the post-to-post speed combined with the up-down demand.

Here’s how it is done; better wear your knee pads for this one:

As I watch the video, I don’t like how I crease at my hips when I initially drop back to a knee down position, but what do you expect, I’m just a strength coach (and the world’s second worst goalie). So watch out that you don’t make the same mistake.

Remember, the goal here is speed and agility.

I definitely would not use this as a conditioning drill – too much wear and tear on the hips and knees.

Go with up to three repetitions each way. Take lots of rest between sets and focus on the quality of your movement.

Enjoy!

Scary close call for

Scary close call for Winnipeg Jets Connor Hellebuyck as teammate’s stick blade got through his cage + cut him near eye; interestingly amid the debate about cat-eye cages, which are banned in Canada, the blade actually appears to go in under the lower bar of the cat-eye opening. Frankly it’s hard to see why that gap, which does nothing to help vision, needs to be big enough for a blade to get through, as unlikely as this incident might be.
