Program Overview:

What is Overspeed?

Hockey specific Overspeed is when a skater moves his or her required parts at higher than normal competitive speeds. An Overspeed workout requires players to skate at speeds 9-15 percent faster than they are capable of. Overspeed is an on-ice training method which is designed to keep the players feet in constant motion at a 100% work load on their legs, using crossovers, pivots, and half pivots and constant motion drills. This consists of both forward and backward skating.

 

Why Overspeed?

Overspeed forces dedicated athletes to be pushed outside their comfort level by repetitive crossovers to attain maximum speed and coordination resulting in maximum performance! Overspeed is not for everyone. It is very challenging as your legs take a heavy work load in a very short amount of time. Overspeed training is for dedicated players only!
