Why does my hockey shot flutter?
Flutter comes from bad shooting mechanics, an incorrect stick blade lie, a stick flex that is way too stiff or a combo of these. Hitting too far behind the puck for a flex of the shaft so the transfer of energy is impaired and conversely hitting just the puck and not getting any flex.
Which foot do you step forward with when making a snapshot?
Off your heel, off the middle, or from the toe. If you want to really load a puck and really snap a puck hard, we want to start the puck on the toe of our blade. So the puck’s going to begin on the toe, and it’s going to move to the middle and that’s where we’re going to snap.
How do you strengthen your wrist for hockey?
In a standing position with a neutral spine, hold the stick with both hands and elevate your arms to shoulder level. From this position, begin to roll the stick in your hands causing the string to wrap around the stick. You can execute this exercise using either flexion or extension of the wrists (forearms).
