Beyond The Benches

Train Like A Canuck

The off-season grind is in full effect for the NHL but that doesn’t mean players take it easy. Most of the time, it’s just the opposite to stay fresh and on-ice high intensity workouts come into play. The Vancouver Canucks web-series is back again this year and the first episode is out featuring Roger Takahashi, Canucks strength and conditioning coach. Takahashi goes into the strength and fitness testing, in addition to what kind of physical and mental attributes the organization looks for in possible players.

CanucksTV captured Episode 1 that was released on Tuesday.
