Title: Kinematic, Neuromuscular, and Performance Changes due to Overspeed Training for Ice Hockey
Author: Faught, Phillip Michael
Abstract: Athletes, coaches, and strength and conditioning practitioners are constantly searching for new and improved speed training methods give themselves or their athletes an edge over their competition. Overspeed training is not a new technique of speed training; however changes and developments over the past decade have created many new methods to train at supramaximal speed. Choosing the appropriate method or methods of overspeed training is important for the training to have the desired performance improvements. High speed running and skating treadmills, tow-assisted running and skating, as well as downhill running are some of the most common methods of overspeed training. Overspeed training has been shown to improve running and skating kinematics resulting in increases in overall speed. Evaluating the benefits and negative effects of specific overspeed methods is important when selecting which methods to apply.
