Relationship between leg strength and skating performance in Swedish junior ice-hockey players (English)
Abstract [sv]

Skridskoåkning är en avgörande faktor för prestation i ishockey och styrka (i nedre extremitet) är i sin tur avgörande för hur snabb spelaren är på isen. Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka sambandet mellan power off-ice och skidskosnabbhet på is. Sju män 19.5 ± 0.5 år vid ett gymnasium ställde upp i studien och genomförde ett testbatteri bestående av Ishockeyförbundets styrketester samt Effektmätning vid knäböj. Variabler i dessa styrketester korrelerades sedan mot deltagarnas resultat i skridskotestet Acceleration & Speed för att bestämma vilka styrkevariabler som är relevanta för skridskosnabbhet. Resultaten visade signifikanta samband mellan absolut styrka i frivändning och tid på total skridskosträcka (ρ=0.77, p<0.05) samt hastighetssträckan (ρ=0.77, p=<0.05). Signifikant samband kunde även påvisas mellan relativ styrka i frivändning och hastighetssträckan (ρ=0.71, p<0.05). Slutsatsen av denna studie är att delar av testbatteriet är relevant för att anskaffa information om en spelares maximala åkhastighet. 

Abstract [en]

Skating is a key factor for a successful ice hockey player and strength in the lower extremity is therefore a crucial factor for determination of a players speed on the ice. The purpose of this study was to investigate the correlation between power, tested off-ice, and skating speed on ice. Seven male ice hockey players aged 19.5 ± 0.5 years were recruited from a local highschool. They completed a test battery consisting of the Swedish Ice hockey associations strength tests and power measurements in squat. In order to determine which strength variable is the most relevant to skating speed the strength variables were correlated to the results in a skating test called Acceleration and Speed. The results showed significant correlations between 1RM in clean and time on total distance (ρ=0.77, p<0.05) and velocity (ρ=0.77, p=<0.05) in the skating test. A significant correlation was also found between relative strength in clean and velocity (ρ=0.71, p<0.05). The conclusion of this study was that parts of the testing battery is relevant for use when collecting information on a players maximum skating speed.
