Effects of Specificity Training on the Recovery Process During Intermittent Activity in Ice Hockey.

Arnett, Mark G.

Collapse Box


The effectiveness of a college hockey player's oxidative energy system was predicted using an on-ice skating test. On-ice recovery rates were determined using the dropoff time, which was calculated from the difference in time between the fastest and slowest 91.44-m interval. The 31 subjects underwent the on-ice skating test before and after an 18-week competitive season. Only on-ice training sessions occurred during these 18 weeks. A significant improvement (p < 0.011) was seen in the subject's recovery rates, indicating that on-ice training sessions can improve the effectiveness of the oxidative energy system.
