We’ve carried the TRX Rip Trainer on our shelves for a while now but it probably doesn’t get the attention it deserves. It’s a hidden gem of a training tool that will help take your off ice workouts to another level.

Every player is looking for ways to improve hip flexibility, core strength and shooting power but the thing we like best about the Rip Trainer is that it’ll help counteract some of the common problems that hockey players who skate a lot face.

The corrective and preventative nature of Rip Trainer exercises strengthen the low-back muscles, which can be problematic due to the flexed skating posture; and they improve the mobility of the hips, which are often tight from repetitive lateral pushing movements when skating.

So, what is a TRX Rip Trainer?

The Rip Trainer employs an innovative resistance cord system to create a variable, unbalanced load that enables development of core strength, explosive power, flexibility and endurance through movement patterns related to everyday life and sport.

The Rip Trainer is easily portable and can be used almost anywhere by attaching it to any secure anchor point. This kit also includes an instructional DVD, a 25-page, 18-exercise workout guide, a protective foam door anchor and a lightweight carrying bag.

Check this three-exercise TRX Rip Training workout tips from Director of Rip Training, Pete Holman, as featured on Stack.

  • Rip Crossover Lunge (10-15 reps each side)

  • Rip Pitchfork (10-15 reps each side)

  • Rip Hockey Slap Shot (10-15 reps each side)


Repeat the sequence two or three times.


Perform this workout two to three times each week to become a better and more durable athlete on the ice.


Here’s an in depth breakdown of the benefits of each exercise:


1Rip Crossover Lunge


This exercise is designed to stretch the lateral hip muscles, which often get sore from excessive skating. It also strengthens the hip as you push up from the flexed position. To increase the intensity of the exercise, step further away from the anchor point or extend your arms off the chest.

2Rip Pitchfork

The Rip Pitchfork strengthens the core muscles—especially in the back—and improves posture. It's both a corrective exercise—it balances out the flexed spine position seen in skating—and a strength exercise—it develops solid core strength needed to transfer power throughout the body.

3Rip Hockey Slap Shot

This exercise develops rotational power needed for shooting. Shooting power begins in the legs and hips, transfers through the core and is delivered out of the upper body. The Rip Hockey Slap Shot exercise mimics this movement and emphasizes total-body power, balance, speed and accuracy.
