Well, I just started playing ice hockey again for the first time in 10 years (!) in a local women’s league. I had SO MUCH fun and am so excited to be back on the ice again. It’s pretty casual, just one game a week and no practices (which is why I’m able to fit it into my life right now).
I finished my 3 months of training with Charles Staley (which was awesome!) and am starting The Waterbury Method next week and throwing in 2-3 morning tabata sessions (first time with that). My goals are to continue to build strength and lean out just a little bit more, but I’m really moving into more of a “maintain” mode for the first time.
Anyway, just wondering if anyone had any tips to help me with hockey - mostly building up my skating speed and endurance a little. I’m sure skating more would be best, but that’s not an option right now. Would adding a few HIIT sessions be better than Tabata thrusters? Thanks!
