Warming Up

from the CP via the Toronto Sun,
Joey Lee knows first-hand the importance of warming up before hitting the ice. "I've noticed over the last few years, the few times I was stupid enough to get on the ice without exercising, I pulled a muscle almost immediately," said Lee, 48. While kids and teenagers are not as prone to throwing out their backs when playing hockey, pre-ice warm-ups help NHL wannabes stay physically and mentally focused. "You want to get them warmed up, not so much for injury prevention, but so they are performing at their peak a little bit faster than they would be otherwise during a practice or a game," said Lee, who helps coach a team in Richmond Hill. Many experts are of the same opinion
