I didn’t understand at the time, but by watching this video over and over, my brain basically downloaded their movements and when I would get on the ice, I would imitate what I saw. There was a famous experiment which proved that when a monkey watches another monkey raise their hand, the areas in the brain which move the hand will be active in the observer as well.
That’s why when you watch a movie and someone is underwater for long periods of time, you might feel like holding your breath or if they get hurt like breaking their arm, you can almost feel it too.
So when it comes to goaltending, it is important to not only workout both on and off the ice, but to also watch and learn from other goalies. Although you might have different playing styles, there is always something you can learn and implement in your game. Though the goal isn’t to copy, it’s to understand what it is that they are doing and why it works.
So TPSH Goalie is my way of breaking down what works and doesn’t work so you can learn from real game scenarios but also from a ton of other amazing how-to videos and drills that you can work on in practice or games.
