Therefore Skellefteå AIK chose Kraftstaven!
We started using KraftWalking, also named KraftstavenTM , during the summer of 2017. From our first session, we were pleasantly surprised by its comfort and response during training. It is very light and has a fantastic pendulum motion. That, combined with its unique grip, provides the flexibility to fit the specific demands relevant to the focus of your training. These properties make KraftWalking the tool that directly contributed in improving our performance.
The physical demands on hockey players have substantially increased in recent years. Besides being explosive, strong and agile, the players have to work at a very high tempo during the entire game, but also maintain consistency of performance during the whole season. This demands that the players have a high anaerobic as well as aerobic capacity. Ice hockey, being a sport that involves the entire body simultaneously, requires that strength and conditioning sessions must be designed to provide a similar whole body workout.
By using KraftWalking as part of our endurance and conditioning training, we have seen a positive effect on the work capacity of the players compared to previous seasons.
