Speed and Explosion Workout

In hockey speed kills. I can't tell you how many times I heard that throughout my playing career. That is why speed specific exercises should be included in any training routine. There are some coaches out there that claim you can't teach speed and while they may be some truth to that, it isn't entirely true. When training the proper way, improving technique, and learning the proper form athletes truly can increase their start speed and top end speed. Here is a workout that is designed to create explosive starts and fast top end speed times.
