COREVYO - HOCKEY

Athletes make their money on their legs, and it’s no different for hockey players just because they wear skates. The driving, timing, and sequencing of proper muscle groups are what help make hockey players stay stable, strong, and explosive on the ice.

The continuous connection between the harness and athlete provides neurological and physical reminders to the skater to stay engaged through the pelvic floor with the goal of ensuring proper muscle sequencing up and down the ice.

Without this proper sequencing throughout movement, we’re at higher risk of certain injuries and at the very least falling behind our competition.

Hockey Instructional Videos

Tight Figure 8

Outside Edge with Puck 

Stay deep and balance in an athletic position. The CoreVYO can either resist or assist this movement as you pass, shoot or stick handle, depending on the direction of pull.

 Inside Edge with Puck

Stay deep and balance in an athletic position. The CoreVYO can either resist or assist this movement as you pass, shoot or stick handle, depending on the direction of pull.

Big Sweep

Keep your lower body square, deep, and balance in an athletic position, with you upper body relaxed as you dissociate it from your lower body to stick handle side to side. Exaggerate the dissociation to sweep across the body, reaching a full range from side to side without compromising your control. The CoreVYO can either resist or assist this movement as you pass, shoot or stick handle, depending on the direction of pull.

 

Side to Side Stickhandling

Generate your speed without lifting your skates off the ice. Keep your lower body square, deep, and balance in an athletic position, with your upper body relaxed as you dissociate it from your lower body to you stick handle side to side.

Curl Shooting Sequence

The resistance of the CoreVYO should start light and increase to the extent you can maintain good position throughout. Stay balance and strong while you transfer through the shot and attempt to keep your feet moving through the shot. The CoreVYO can either resist or assist this movement as you pass, shoot or stick handle, depending on the direction of pull.

 

Static Shooting Sequence

The resistance of the CoreVYO should start light and increase to the extent you can maintain good position throughout. Stay balance and strong while you transfer through the shot. The CoreVYO can either resist or assist this movement as you pass, shoot or stick handle, depending on the direction of pull.

Neural Rehearsal

Visualize everything that you know about hockey and the movements you are learning with the CoreVYO. This is very purposeful - break them down, slow them down, and do them very deliberatly. Put yourself in different hockey situations - the movements do not change, but the speed of them do! The resistance of the CoreVYO should start light and increase to the extent you can rotate back to square and maintain good position throughout.

 

Figure 8

Box Drill 

Stay low in a balanced and deep athletic neutral position and focus on pushing, instead of reaching, in the direction you want to go. Keep your body square throughout the drill regardless of the tension of the CoreVYOcords.

Dissociation Stick Handling

Dissociate (separation) of your upper and lower body, controlling the movement from your core. Stay low and balanced in your athletic neutral position, and do not let your legs buckle towards each other. Keep your upper body relaxed while stick handling. Use the CoreVYO to either assist or resist the rotation and dissociation.

 

Dissociation 

Dissociate (separation) of your upper and lower body, controlling the movement from your core. Stay low and balanced in your athletic neutral position, and do not let your legs buckle towards each other. Use the CoreVYO to either assist or resist the rotation and dissociation.

Slalom

Dissociate your upper and lower body, controlling the movement from your core. Use the CoreVYO to either assist or resist the rotation and dissociation and keep your chest square to the direction you are skating throughout. 

Lateral Push Off

In this drill, focus on pushing off (do not reach) the back leg while maintaining a low and balanced athletic position. Your upper body should stay square the entire drill. The CoreVYO can either resist or assist this movement depending on the direction of pull.

Athletic Neutral

Mohawks

Your lower body should remain strong and square to your target as you resist the pull of the CoreVYO --  do not allow the CoreVYO to affect your edging.

Side Start and Stops

In this drill, focus on driving off both legs while maintaining an athletic neutral position. DO not allow the CoreVYO to keep you from squaring up your belly button to the direction you are heading after you first 2 steps.

Forward Skating - Slow Motion 

Visualize your skating stride... This is very purposeful - break it down, slow it down, and do it very deliberately. The movement do not change, but the speed of them do! The resistance of the CoreVYO should start light and increase to the extent you can rotate back to square and maintain good position throughout.
