hockey player training with a hockey workout program

Develop the strength you need to play your game.

Hockey’s no longer just about size. 

The game is faster and more skilled than ever before. But even highly skilled players are still told they need to get bigger and stronger to play at the next level. 

The truth is that strength allows players to have more tools in their toolbox, whether it’s winning corner battles, outmuscling players for a loose puck, or not getting knocked off the puck. The new era of elite hockey players combines elite skill on the on-ice with equally elite strength off the ice.

Do you have the strength to make your game undeniable?

“We like you as a player, but we all think you need another season to get stronger and hopefully come back next year.” 

It was crushing. 

He had heard it before, but he thought after last season it was different. He had just come off a 25 goal season in Junior A and knew he had the speed and skill to play Major Junior. 

He had always been “the small guy” on the team. But it had forced him to play smarter, develop more elusive skating, and rely more on skill than size. And while scouts and coaches had shifted priorities from size to speed – he still knew that it was holding him back, and maybe this was his ceiling. 

“But we’ll see you at main camp in the fall and hopefully you have a big summer.”

These final words from the Coach had stuck in his head. 

It means they haven’t written me off, I just need to add some muscle and get stronger and it’ll take away any excuses they have to cut me.” 

Where many players would have felt dejected and accepted the label of being “too small for the next level” – he heard opportunity. 

For the past few off-seasons he had convinced himself that it was impossible for him to gain muscle. His dad was a skinny guy, and he claimed it was “in the genes.” Instead, he had invested all his energy in skill work to compensate for size and strength. 

He wanted to be a mix between Patrick Kane and Brandon Gallagher, two players who’s game he had studied intensely.  But he had realized that even his “smaller” NHL idols both weighed over 175 and had the strength when they needed. 

“I gotta add some muscle. It’s not that I’d play scared in the OHL, I just know I wouldn’t be able to play as fearless and rely just on my skill and skating. As long as it didn’t slow me down, adding muscle would actually let me play more of my game and get more opportunities.” 

He was right. Every small player who’s been successful in this game has relied on a combination of skill, elusiveness, fearlessness, and strength. We were looking at a player who, if he added muscle, would just “get by” in the OHL, but could thrive. 

So we committed to creating a program that would add muscle and strength strategically without getting bulky and slowing down. 

The result showed. 

Each week his lifts increased. The first phase he had gained 7lbs, more than any off-season he ever had. Then he gained another 7lbs when we shifted to our power development phase. Then finally another 3lbs in our transferable phase. A total of 17lbs for a player who has “skinny genes.” 

But the scale matters far less than the results on the ice. And despite getting bigger, his skill coach kept commenting on how much faster he looked. The strength and power work gave him more explosiveness in his starts, cuts, and change of direction and he felt it. 

Come training camp, he had eliminated any reason to cut him. He looked like a veteran on the ice, putting up multiple points per game in intersquad games, and come pre-season kept the train rolling with points in each game. 

It was undeniable that he belonged in the OHL. 

After a successful season in the OHL, he connected us with a teammate of his, a tall lanky European defenceman, who also had the self-proclaimed “skinny genes.”

“You gotta give him the same game plan you did for me. If he throws on 20lbs of muscle he’d be a legit NHL caliber defenceman. He’s 6’5 but just not an imposing force out there. If he got the same strength I had it would turn him into a monster.”

We created a digital version of the program and sent it to him to use back in Europe. And again saw the same results. 

Each week we’d check in and his dad (who was also his youth coach and now ran his skates in the summer) would jump on the call and brag about the progress he was making on the ice. 

“He’s tried to add this strength for 3-4 seasons. He looks way more solid on his skates, no more “bambi feet,” he’s strong in corners, he’s shooting harder. He is going to be way tougher to play against.”

Both an undersized player and a tall lanky player each had their game transformed by adding the strength and muscle that mattered.  Their success was undeniable, and it was time to share it with the countless players at all levels that were being “held back” by their size. 

The Relentless Size & Strength Program was born. 

Since then, we’ve had emails from dozens and dozens of players who gained meaningful muscle and broke through to the next level.

Eliminate the opportunity for coaches to knock you for your size. Make your game undeniable.

I wanted to take my training to the next level and add some size heading into my first pro season. Relentless Hockey was exactly what I needed. It was the first time it felt like I wasn’t just lifting heavy and trying to add size - I was training to get stronger on the ice. The core strength & stability work is huge and I legitimately feel it on the ice

I always played a power forward role but felt I was getting pushed off the puck. I didn’t want to get bulky, but I knew adding some muscle and getting stronger would be huge for this game. My off-season with Relentless got me leaner than ever while also adding muscle AND getting way stronger & more explosive. I felt more confident in playing my style against anyone!

This offseason was truly at another level and I want to say thanks to Relentless for all the help. I gained 15lbs of muscle, the extensive speed work has me feeling way better on the ice, and the mobility work has my body feeling unreal. I know I can make some huge strides this year on the ice and I gotta say a huge thanks to you guys!

REVIEWS FOR RELENTLESS SIZE & STRENGTH

Ryan Muholland

Windsor, ON | Junior A

Hey dude, I just wanted to hit you up and let you know that I just finished the Size program and I’m up 12lbs. I’m such a hard gainer so this has been huge for me. Best part is I actually feel more solid in down low and in front of the net. This program will definitely net me an extra 10 garbage goals this season!

T.J. Shafer

Jersey City, NS| College (ACHA)

This has been my biggest off-season ever. I went from 160 to 175lbs. Top 3 in fitness testing. Already playing top line minutes. I really credit you guys for helping me get here, I couldn’t do with without Relentless!

Danielle Z.

New Haven, CT | Prep School

I don’t know how many female players you have on this program, but my results have been huge and super impactful for my game. My coach told me that to play D1 I would have to get strong enough on the puck. I’m feeling stronger and more confident in the corners and tougher to knock off the puck and I really credit my off-season training with your guys' programs.

Jamie B.

Ann Arbour, MI | Prep School

Just wanted to share some of my results this season… I started playing on 1st/2nd line, doubled my points, and even started talking to a couple of colleges.. My dad says my game really changed by getting stronger and even my coaches comment on how strong I am on the puck. Really appreciate your guys' help last off-season!

Seb Ekholm

Vaxjo, Sweden | Elite Juniors

My old trainer was all about functional training and would say Americans focused too much on strength... but I knew I had to get stronger and add muscle to play pro. The Relentless program was perfect because it trains functional and for hockey… but still focuses on getting stronger.

Micheal S.

Calgary, AB | Senior Player

Kyle, I just gotta say.. I wasn’t expecting this kind of program! I’ve been a gym guy all my life and thought I idn’t even know I had! I didn’t add too much muscle (that wasn’t the goal for me) but I am noticeably stronger and more stable on the ice. It’s like I turned my gym strength into hockey strength with this program.

Bobby Arkin

Hamilton, ON | Mens League Player

I love this program. I followed you guys on insta for years and knew your stuff was tight.. But actually getting a structured program to follow has been massive. I feel like my core is 10x stronger and that I’m built like an elite hockey player.

Chris Curran

Elora, ON | Senior A

Honestly my goal wasn’t adding muscle, it was developing “Crosby strength” that would let me get stronger on the puck. A couple weeks in and I already felt that improved core strength and being able to tap into those stronger positions. I’ve loved this program and can’t wait to repeat it!
