I played ice hockey all throughout my childhood but havent played in a league for about 4 years. I am now 23 and I just joined a roller hockey league for ages 21-30. I have played 2 games so far and I am having a speed problem. My top speed is pretty good but the 1st two or three steps are not explosive enough. As a result I am usually caught by the time i get to full speed. My question is... how do I work on this? Is there anyhting I can do (either on skates or off skates) to become more explosive? Thanks in advance for any input.
