Hi Everyone,

Anyone on these boards use asylum to train hockey players with? If so, how have the results been? I train hockey players and I am seriously considering using asylum as part of their program.

Any feedback would be appreciated!

Thanks

I am actually using Asylum to train for roller hockey while the rink is being repaired. I'm not sure how much I have improved but if its anything like Insanity, the difference is really noticeable. I had to switch to a softer wheel because my stride was so strong it slid out. I use a Sprung chassis so that my stride close to ice as i can get. My balance and mobility also improved, now Asylum seems to be fine tuning but also creating a better range of motion, I really wish this workout was around when I was playing Div III.

As for my background, I started ice skating at 3, playing in mites at 5, after that I had to start playing up a level (i played 4 years in midgets as there was no junior team), Tier II State champs, was about to play for a Top 25 Div 1 USIU before they had to disband due to budget cuts, then ended up for a year at CCRI before my shoulder went

There is no question that it will be good for hockey training. All of the core training and balance will make their center of gravity so much better. They will also get explosive fast twitch training for quick stops and starts. Their cardio level will be far and above other teams as well. Asylum will really make you better in any sport. I played junior hockey for the Devils growing up. If I had this type of training back then , I think it would have taken me to the next level. Your team may hate you during the asylum training, but they will love you when are taking home the championship at the end of the season.
