Strength and Conditioning Coach
"Unlocking the Secret To High Performing Hips"
"My overall view with hips for hockey players is that they don't do enough strength training on that area. Sure more and more players and trainers have understood the importance of strong glutes, but the hips are so much more than just the glutes! Which Im going to talk about how I see it 🙂. When it comes to injury prevention, I have put up my own screening battery which I do on every player during the pre-season. By doing this I get baseline values on strength and mobility and hopefully can find some red flags early on and prevent them from getting injured."
Andreas started to play ice hockey when he was 4 years old and it was his "everything" for almost twenty years. Most of his active career he played for the Stockholm AIK Hockey team. Andreas has also played 3 games for Sweden U20 National Team, which he's very proud of. He hang his skates up at the age of 22 years old after playing one last season abroad in Hungary.
