I am an 18 yo boy who decided to do his best to play ice hockey and hopefully join the college team. Well, as I am not living in a country like USA & Canada or Russia, it is really not much difficult to do this when you like this sports.
The problem for me is, currently, I can't say I am fit and I really need to keep myself improving before getting onto ice and all I have is a "free gym" that belongs to the apartment I live where there is treadmill, exercise bike, that "space walk" thing and some dumbbells.
I am 5'9" at 165 lbs and what I want is simply start growing up with the following skills,
* Explosive power
Please do not hesitate to add if I need another crucial one. Could you please share your ideas and advices on what can be done to learn and get better in ice hockey off the ice?
There is no free place where I can skate and I simply need to wait till our school rents the place. When this happens in March, I will be able to skate something like 40mins a week for 1.5 or 2 months... As long as you are not a hockey player of a team, it is unlikely that you can have chance to skate without paying really important money.
That's why I want to train myself to get better on ice quicker.
I know I can't be a NHL star starting to play hockey now, but I will push limits and at least, get over the standards of my country(Turkey). Any kind of practice help will be appreciated!
