Project Description

The illustrations in Hockey Anatomy isolate muscles and muscular development by showing specific hockey-focused exercises that enhance performance by increasing muscular strength and optimizing efficiency of every athletic movement. Athletes are depicted in the act of each motion, both in the gym and in full hockey gear, with muscles color-coded as primary or secondary. A total of 96 exercises are paired with their on-ice actions to help players visualize and focus on the muscle groups involved in improving strength, power, speed, agility, mobility, and balance. By showing illustrations rather than photos, the athlete gains a much better understanding of how each muscle is involved in an exercise or sport-specific movement. Exercises to aid in core stability and injury rehabilitation are also illustrated in full anatomical detail.
