– Hey hockey
players, in this video I’m gonna talk about how you
can prepare for a hockey game. Every hockey player is going
to prepare differently, but this would be my ideal
routine for a big game, and hopefully it will give
you some ideas to use. It all starts the night
before with some planning. I’m going to sit down and
figure out my schedule for the game day so
that I’m not scrambling to do things or wondering what
I need to do before the game. Is there anything out of the
ordinary that needs to be done, do I need groceries for my pregame meal, or do I need to get my wheels sharpened, these are all things
that I would think about the night before a game. Once that’s finished,
it’s time to hit the hay and get a solid eight hours of sleep in. Once you wake up, the morning
routine is going to be important to kick start the day. Mine would include rehydrating
with 16 ounces of water right when I wake up,
running through a bit of a mobility routine to
get lose and energized, some deep breathing exercises, reviewing today’s
schedule so I know exactly what’s going on for the day,
eating a healthy breakfast, something like eggs, oatmeal, and fruit would be ideal for me, and lastly preparing meals
for the rest of the day to take to school or work or wherever I’m headed for the day. Roughly three hours before game time, it’s going to be pregame meal time for me. With this meal, we want a one to one ratio of carbs to protein with some
veggies added in on the side. My go to pregame meal
would be chicken breast, rice, and some green veggies. Check out the article
at hockeytraining.com to see exactly what to
eat before your games to increase your performance. After the pregame meal is when I would get everything I need to
take to the rink packed so that I’m not rushing
around right before I need to leave for rink. If you’re like me and you
ever lose track of time at home, a bonus tip would
be to set your phone alarm for five minutes before
you need to leave the house so you don’t need to be
constantly checking the time. All right, it’s time to head to the ring. – [Radio Voice] Welcome to the
hockeytraining.com podcast. – [Narrator] Once I get
to the rink, in order to properly hydrate for
the game, I would drink six to 10 ounces of water,
roughly 20 minutes prior to stepping on the ice. A proper dynamic warmup is
ideal about 15 to 20 minutes before warmups so I would run through our hockey training warmup
before getting dressed. Something that isn’t
utilized enough with younger hockey players, but
you’ll see the pro players doing while they’re getting dressed is throwing in some
headphones and listening to some music or mindset audio clips and visualizing their success on the ice. If you’d be interested
in some hockey specific mindset audio clips for
your pregame routine, let us know in the comments below. All right, it’s game time
and after running through this game day prep, I’d be both mentally and physically ready to go out there and light it up on the ice. So what’s in your hockey game day routine? Let me know in the comments below and make sure you hit the thumbs up button if you enjoyed this video, subscribe if you’re
