Hang Clean for Hockey
The Hang Clean is one of the most effective exercises for increasing hockey speed, strength, coordination, and general athleticism. Because it is so effective, we include it as one of our “core” lifts in the S3 Formula (by core I mean “main” or “staple” lifts, not the core muscles of the mid-section).
Technique is extremely important with the Hang Clean. So, start light enough that you can control the weight and develop your technique before moving on to heavier weights. Including this lift in your off ice training program will help make you a stronger, faster player come fall!
