"I cannot thank Rich enough. Rich took me under his wing and developed skills I wasn't good at during my time in the ECHL and AHL. Rich used his free time to work with me to develop as a player. I appreciate all Rich has done for me and he really helped me make my way to the NHL." Tom Kuhnhackl 2017 & 2018 Stanley Cup Champion
“I have two kids age 12 and 10 and they absolutely love Driveway Dangles. It actually helped my 12 year old get on the Devils team that will be representing New Jersey at the Quebec International Peewee tournament. It is easy to use and easy to understand. They don’t always need dad to get out there and coach them. They are getting better all on their own. I can say without a doubt that Rich is extremely qualified and I will actually be using some of his stuff with my big boys with the Devils.” - NHL New Jersey Devils, Interim Head Coach, Alain Nasreddine

I strongly recommend following the program as written below. Once the program is reviewed, I would repeat all lesson plans and master the drills.
As a trainer and player myself, I watch the videos inside my house, and then I take the PDF lesson plans outside to complete the drills. I love doing the drills on a rough surface, as it builds my arm strength that much more! It may not look as pretty, but it's developing very strong hands. When I get to a smooth surface, I am able to fly through the drills smoothly. I feel the more difficult training (concrete) has really helped me develop stronger stickhandling skills. After each drill is completed, I take a small break in between drills. Around 30 seconds or so.
The 101 Strength Program provides you with drills to create your own workout by selecting the workout names off the list. If I am unsure of the skill, I look up the name and watch the video on the page. I then complete the workout outside, basement etc. I will adjust repetitions as I get stronger for example:
1. Agility Ladder / Hurdle Drill
2. Agility Ladder / Hurdle Drill
3. Agility Ladder / Hurdle Drill
4. Agility Ladder / Hurdle Drill
5. Strength Drill, example: Push ups X 10 X 5 sets
6. Strength Drill, example Squats X 20 x 3 sets
7. Strength Drill, example Plank X 30 seconds X 4 sets
8. Strength Drill, example Lunges X 5 each leg X 4 sets
As written, I adjust the amount of repetitions and sets I do based on the player's strength level. I work on each exercise and focus on mastering them. I highly recommend, if it is your first time using the program, to watch the video, then download the pdf. Create your workouts and mark off once you've completed each drill, until they are all completed over a length of time.
