Previous research has stated that dryland sled pulling trains first-step quickness in hockey players. Further research has demonstrated that off-ice horizontal training (sled pull, parachute, etc) relates well to on-ice acceleration and speed. However, there is limited literature pertaining to on-ice resistance training that aims to enhance speed and acceleration in hockey players. The purpose of the current study was to determine if on-ice BungeeSkate training would improve on-ice speed and acceleration in youth hockey players.


Twenty-three Peewee and Bantam hockey players (age 11–14) were recruited, with 20 participants completing the study. Pretesting and posttesting consisted of an on-ice 44.8-m speed test, a 6.1-m acceleration test, and a 15.2-m full-speed test. The training protocol consisted of 8 sessions of 5 BungeeSkate training exercises per session, 2 times per week for a 4-wk period.


The results of this study showed that speed and top speed were significantly increased (P < .05) by 4.2% and 4.3%, respectively. Acceleration was also slightly improved but not significantly.


A 4-wk BungeeSkate training intervention can improve acceleration and speed in youth hockey players. This training method could be a valid adjunct to existing strategies to improve skill development in hockey and is shown to improve speed and acceleration in relatively short training sessions. This may be most advantageous for hockey coaches and players who are looking to maximize training benefits with limited ice time.

intervention ( Biddle & Batterham, 2015 ) is high-intensity interval training (HIIT). HIIT typically involves repeated bouts of high-intensity exercise interspersed with periods of low-intensity recovery or rest ( Shepherd et al., 2015 ). HIIT, as an intervention approach for previously inactive adults, has

However, there has been growing interest in the application of high-intensity interval training, particularly aerobic interval training (AIT), in health care settings. Higher intensity physical activity has been reported to offer greater benefits. 3 , 7 , 8 Several studies analyzing the effects of AIT on

Although these values are an adequate guide to help individuals achieve minimum amounts of exercise for health benefits, the growing prevalence and popularity of interval training necessitates additional guidelines in regard to maximal levels of frequency and intensity.
