I had an idea of what I thought nutrition and being in shape was as a hockey player.....until I read this book. I bought this book looking to improve my game and that is exactly what has happened. Peter Twist takes his experience as a National Hockey League conditioning coach and gives us the same advice that he gives the pros. I strongly recommend this book to coaches and all players serious about taking their game to a higher level
Peter Twist covers all aspects of conditioning to play hockey regardless of the level of play. He dedicates a significant amount of text to youth hockey players. This book is an essential read for youth hockey coaches, although it can be best applied to high school and above. Athletes that can adopt his methods, including nutritional guidance will have the edge.
