If there are any hockey players, coaches or anyone associated with the game, I have a quick and interesting announcement for you. My good friend, colleague and brilliant strength coach Kevin Neeld is starting a new site called hockeytrainingexpert.com. Kevin is a former Cressey Performance intern, and he’s now the Director of Athletic Development of Endeavor Fitness in New Jersey where he trains hundreds of high school and college athletes, as well as many NHL players.
Kevin is an expert in what it takes to help you maximize your hockey performance. I am humbled to say that I’ve partnered with Kevin on this site and consider myself lucky to contribute to this incredible resource. I have already written two articles exclusively for the site, and will be contributing many more in the future. So again, if you are a current hockey player, hockey coach, or work anyway with hockey take it upon yourself to check out this comprehensive resource with tons of content on off-ice training, player development and proper nutrition for the aspiring hockey player.
A quick and convenient meal.
Lately I’ve been trying to come up with ways to have quick convenient healthy meals for dinner. Many of you, like me, have limited time for food preparation, but still want to eat high-quality, delicious and healthful meals. One method we have come up with is purchase fresh lean steak and chicken. After purchase we chop the meat into approximately 1 inch cubes and individually store in freezer bags, with each serving size being approximately 6 ounces. You can choose whatever serving size fits your appetite and diet.
We also have purchased a wide variety of mixed frozen vegetables to make an awesome stir-fry with meat. When Anna gets home from a long day of school or I get home from a long day of work it is very easy to toss some frozen meat in a bowl of hot water to thaw. Once thawed (it only takes 10 to 15 minutes), toss the meat in a large frying pan with a little extra virgin olive oil. Add in half of a bag of mixed frozen veggies and season to taste. This highly nutritious, tasty, low-carb dinner does not require a lot of time or effort.
It is also a nice change of pace to have a fresh and hot chopped chicken breast, rather than always using previously cooked and stored chicken breast. Pick up these few items on your next trip to the grocery store and you’ll be set for at least one convenient and healthy meal everyday.
