I am super pumped to share the BRAND NEW ShutOut Academy with you!
Here's Why The Results Will Shock You And Your Teammates...
(even if you are already in great shape)
You see, up until now you have been missing critical pillars in your goalie development. If you have been doing the same training as the skaters on your team then you are missing at least two of the FOUR PILLARS every elite goalie needs to succeed.
I'm not saying you are strong.
I'm not saying you aren't flexible.
You may even be pretty quick...
But if you don't have all FOUR PILLARS then you are like a Formula One race car with one wheel out of alignment. No matter how hard you press the accelerator, you are not going to perform at your best AND you are exponentially increasing your risk of serious injury.
This is the secret ingredient that has been holding you back.
Let me explain each pillar...
If you read the term "mobility" and immediately thought flexibility or splits, then I guarantee that your first pillar is failing you. Flexibility alone can actually increase your risk of hip and groin injury. Mobility training like you will find in the ShutOut Academy will let you make those dramatic Jonathan Quick-esque saves and recover quickly to your ready position for the next game saving play, while even the other team's players stare at you with their mouth's open thinking "how did he do that?"
Notice I said "Goalie Strength" - this is not the same as the strength that other goalies build in the gym using the Leg Press, Knee Extension or Groin machine. It is the strength that lets you move and control your movements in the crease with precision and most importantly it doesn't bulk you up and weigh you down. Rather than building big, dumb muscles like those other goalies, you will build strong, smart muscles.
Here's where you put that Goalie Strength to use. By teaching you to integrate your core strength with your quick and powerful legs, you have the speed that actually lets you slow the game down. Think about that for a second. I am not giving you more speed so you can chase the game. I am giving you more speed so you can be patient, cut down the shooter's options and let the game come to you. That's what you develop with your ShutOut Speed drills.
This one should be obvious and you have all seen it and probably all felt it at least a few times in your career. You start off great, you feel great, you are making awesome saves, you are in control.
Then your team takes a couple penalty's - you are tested a little more than normal. Your legs are burning and you are not getting much time to recover during breaks in play. Even when the crisis has passed and your team is back on track and playing even strength, your legs are still not recovering.
You dread seeing the puck come back across the near blue line and into your zone because you know that your legs have some lactic acid in there and it feels like they are on a split second time-delay every time you need to make a quick movement or recover from your butterfly back to you ready position.
It's a hopeless feeling because you know where you should be, but you just can't get there. This is why the fourth pillar is essential. No use being fast if you can't sustain that speed.
