Muscles for Hockey.

Im going to catergorize the muscles into groups. Upper Body, Core, and Legs. In those groups I'll explain muscles and what they do for hockey.

Upper Body

- The chest, or known as pecs are amazing for your overall upper body stability, and muscle mass. This will help your balance, and hitting. The chest is a great muscle, similar to the shoulders for usage in hockey.

- Most hockey players end up with weak shoulders. The shoulder muscle is good for overall upper body stability.  It will help you with hitting, stick handling, and winning battles. The shoulder is an overall good hockey muscle.

- Biceps are not that important when it comes to hockey, they are good for stick lifts, and maybe if you get into a fight, to help you with your upper cut, or left hook. Honestly the bicep is just for show. You know what they say "curls for the girls". So when it comes to hockey, don't focus on this muscle.

- Triceps are not very helpful, kind of similar to the bicep. They look great at the beach, but honestly you'll probably only use your tri's a little bit in your shot, and when fighting. Don't focus on this muscle.


- Your back is one of the most important muscles when it comes to hockey. All the way from shooting, all the way to fighting, and hitting. EVERYTHING. Any pulling, or moving, pretty much anything requires strength from your back. Focus on this muscle, it will help you a tremendous amount. This muscle also helps with your skating, almost all the starting power starts from your core.

- The abdominal muscles are amazing when it comes to hockey. The abs are pretty similar to the back when it comes to hockey. They help out with balance, a little bit of everything, and your overall endurance. This muslce also helps with your skating, almost all the starting power starts from your core.

Hip Flexors
- The hip flexor muscle is really helpful for turning, balance, and your overall stride. This muscle is amazing when it comes to skating!


- The legs are very important because legs are the base for a good skater. The calfs happen to be the least important leg muscle. All the calf really helps with is your extension on your stride. It gives you that little extra umph! because the stronger the calf, the harder the toe snap, the quicker you are.

- Quads are definitely the most important leg muscle. Most of the power comes from your quads for your stride. A good strong quad, give you speed, agility, and even a nice hard shot, and balance. This is a great muscle to work.

- Hamstrings are very similar to quads when it comes to hockey. It helps with agility, speed, power, pretty much everything, but just not as much at the quads. A great, muscle to work on though.
