Metabolic Finishers For Hockey Goalie Workouts

Metabolic Finishers For Hockey Goalie Workouts

Maria Mountain FInisherA “finisher” is kind of like dessert for your workout. 

In fact it is like dessert in lots of ways: You don’t NEED it and you certainly don’t want to have it everyday or you could get into trouble, but add one of these to the end of your workout once (or maximum twice) per week and it is a nice treat that will really pay off when you hit the ice.

If you are not familiar with the term, a metabolic finisher is a sequence of exercises repeated consecutively to provide a muscular and cardiovascular training stimulus.

It is not speed or power training. It is more high-intensity muscular endurance training and I think the biggest benefit is the confidence it can give you when you are feeling fatigued late in a game. 

You will be able to look back on this post-workout torture and remember how you survived even though it was exhausting.

Like any other workout, make sure you are using proper technique and relatively light loads. Trying to use a load that is too heavy will lead to poor form and even a risk of injury.

Here are two Metabolic Finishers you can try – the first video has a bit of an intro and then gets into your first finisher:
