In December of 2010, I had the opportunity to sit down for breakfast with then Anaheim Ducks strength and conditioning coach, Sean Skahan. Sean has been with the Ducks for nearly a decade and a year ago launched hockeystrengthandconditioning.com with several other high level coaches.
Its always a pleasure to be able to sit down with individuals who've "been there, done that", but anytime I'm able to sit down with someone associated with hockey, this becomes a privilege.
The reason I'm writing about this rendezvous is because of some of the topics we chatted about. Here, in point form, was the jist of our conversation.
For more information about Sean Skahan, please visit seanskahan.com. He also posted an excellent article on Dragon Door and recently released his DVDs on Kettlebell Lifting for Ice Hockey which can be found here.
