Online Strength And Conditioning Specialist
My name is Henri Filppula. I consider myself a servant of people. Others may call it coaching. My passion is to help hockey athletes to find their potential to become stronger, faster and more explosive.
I have been coaching hockey players for over a decade. My coaching philosophy is based strongly on basics, where strength levels are raised simply but certainly, without the unnecessary "specific” tricks that have become today’s trend. Each client deserves an individual, passionately-created workout plan that works like magic without wasting time.
I try to develop myself as a coach by being aware of everything new and favoring old research and functional knowledge. I don’t believe in trendy exercise equipment or injury prevention "fairy tale" methods. In addition, I do not use modern “too good to be true” training styles and exercises. Trust me, I've been there and seen it all. I think they mislead the athlete on what performance-enhancing training really is.
Nothing beats the simple basics of training when it comes to gaining strength or preventing injuries. These are the ones that do the magic, now and always. You only have to do what is necessary, nothing more. Get yourself under the bar and start lifting by using proper form with a complete range of motions. It's the only way to top performance. Period.
