Field Hockey

NxTUP Sports Performance has designed a field hockey strength training program that will build a player’s strength, power and proprioception.

Reactive Training and Power Development:

  1. 1. The field hockey athlete will complete reactive training exercises at the beginning of their offseason and preseason workouts to increase their ability to cut and accelerate past their defenders.
  2. 2. They will also complete power exercises year-round to further develop their acceleration, first step explosiveness and shot power.


  1. 1. Unilateral exercises such as lateral lunges and 1-Leg RDL’s are prescribed to develop the athlete’s proprioception.
  2. 2. These exercises will improve stability, body control and athleticism.
  3. 3. Players will improve their stick handling and the ability to avoid the defender’s jab.

Strength and Injury Prevention:

  1. 1. Our program focuses on a full body strengthening routine, which special emphasis placed on the posterior chain.
  2. 2. Field hockey players are in constant flexion which often leads to pelvic and lower back injuries.
  3. 3. To combat the muscular imbalances that result from this positioning, we concentrate on strengthening the posterior chain to promote proper posture and avoid injuries.
