The Ultimate Body Weight Hockey Off-Ice Workout (No Equipment Necessary)

Do you want the ultimate body weight hockey off-ice workout? No equipment necessary, just your healthy body and a ton of determination to survive what I feel is the toughest of workouts. This workout is perfect for when you are on the road and unable to get to the gym. It can be completed anywhere, including a hotel room, arena hallway, park, or wherever you find yourself craving a good muscle burn and a good old-fashioned sweat. Bad news for the big boys and girls, since the bigger and heavier you are, the tougher this workout gets!

WARNING: Do not attempt this workout unless you are healthy and injury free. If you have a medical condition, please consult with a physician before starting this or any type of exercise program.
