Next Level Hockey Training - #1 Off-Ice Training Program on the Internet


Don't Do ANY Off-Ice Workouts Before...


Next Level Hockey Training 2.0


From: Yunus Barisik, Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist & Pro Hockey Strength Coach


How would you like to learn the exact off-ice training methods of hundreds of hockey players who have:

  • Donned the National Team jersey
  • Signed pro contracts
  • Taken giant leaps in on-ice performance
  • Come back from career-threatening injuries
  • And are now stronger, healthier and more athletic than ever before

My name is Yunus Barisik and I work with high-level hockey players in Espoo, Finland.

I have personally trained and designed strength, speed and conditioning programs for 500+ athletes at all levels of competitive hockey, including:

  • NCAA D1
  • Finnish Elite League
  • NHL Draft Picks from 10 NHL Teams
  • Men's and Women's National Team
  • 10 Gold Medal Winners at 4 Different U18 & U20 World Championships Since 2016

And now, for the first time ever, I'm revealing the exact same off-ice training programs that have produced some of the strongest, in-shape junior, college and pro hockey players in Europe to the public.


Check out some of my athletes reaping the rewards in the gym by using the training programs contained in Next Level Hockey Training 2.0...

“Following Yunus' off-ice programs, I achieved personal and team success I could only dream about before!”

"Yunus’ knowledge of improving hockey performance has helped me in ways I didn’t know existed when we first started working together.

In just one year of training with him, my strength and speed have improved dramatically!

As a direct result of this, I now have more time and space on the ice, which allow me to better showcase my hockey skills.

Following Yunus' off-ice training programs, I achieved personal and team success I could only dream about before.

I won gold at the World Junior Championships, earned Most Valuable Player honors in the Finnish U20 Elite League, and was drafted into the NHL by the 2016 Stanley Cup champions."

"As someone who has wanted to play the game for as long as I could (10 years and counting), I had always been interested in training and nutrition.

My big problem was that I had always erred on the side of doing too much. I would spend hours going through grueling off-season workouts. Then I felt wiped out, both physically and mentally, from all that volume by the end of the summer.

Another issue was my weight and how it affected my speed. In the past, when training to get bigger and stronger, my shot felt great… but I felt a bit too heavy on the ice. So I was hesitant to really push myself with heavy lifting because I thought it would take away from my agility and quickness.

Yunus’ program really opened my eyes to what you can achieve by focusing on the quality of training rather than the quantity. It’s the first time I have gotten stronger by doing LESS. In fact, I don't think my lower body has ever been this strong.

I think we struck a perfect balance of making gains yet feeling fresh every day. I should also mention that my hips have never felt this healthy thanks to all the lifting, jumping and hip mobility work Yunus had me do. This is extremely valuable for me as I have had my fair share of adductor/groin trouble throughout the years.

I learned that smart training is all about quality volume, which is why I got better results than ever before. Another big realization was that getting bigger and faster go hand in hand when your off-ice workouts are dialed in. I felt faster on the track and when I got back on the ice, I was able to change directions and get going quicker. Everything just felt smoother.

I really liked how organized the whole off-season plan was and that Yunus tailored it specifically to my needs as an older player. Even though the coaching took place online, his specific instructions removed all the guesswork, which made the entire process even smoother than I expected. He answered all my questions about training, nutrition, supplementation and recovery in great detail.

The only reason I wouldn’t recommend Yunus is because he’s the best kept secret right now in hockey strength and conditioning. Jokes aside, I believe every single hockey player will enjoy and get better on his program."

Skinny Junior Player Transforms Into
Strong and Explosive Hockey Pro

"Growing up, I had little experience lifting weights.

Sure, we had team gym workouts a couple of times per week from the U16 level up. But the weights were light and coaching was non-existent.

Add to that tons of long-distance running, and you could call it your typical junior team training: lots of activity without noticeable results. I was weak and skinny. 

Things changed radically when I started training with Yunus at age 17. Almost immediately, I noticed that I was gaining strength and muscle at a fast rate. 

It was great to see my progress in the gym carry over to the ice: my skating got more powerful and I felt a lot stronger in puck battles.

The first two years in the juniors, we focused on getting stronger. Once my strength reached a certain level, we began emphasizing speed and power methods that better transfer to the pro game.

Consequently, my playing style turned more physical. As a defensive defender, I learned how to use my body to remove opponents from the puck with efficiency. There’s no doubt in my mind that the strength and muscle I built in the weight room plays a big part in that.

I really like how Yunus’ training centers around the major barbell lifts like squats and power cleans. These exercises build the foundation for hockey performance. At the same time, there’s also enough variety so you don’t get bored doing the same stuff over and over. 

Would I recommend Yunus to other hockey players? Absolutely.

Too many guys obsess about aerobic conditioning (especially the VO2max bike test) and fail to reach their full potential as an athlete because their strength and power is not up to snuff.

I believe any athlete who wants to get faster and more explosive will benefit from Yunus’ training program."

Off-Season Gains Make Pro Hockey Player Stronger and Faster

"I followed a 3-day per week, full-body training program Yunus designed for me this off-season.

I really enjoyed all the variation in exercise selection and execution that he includes in his programs. It helps keep your training fresh and interesting over time.

With other workout plans, you might end up doing the same three or four movements for months on end. That becomes boring real fast.

Another thing I noticed was how quickly my strength increased. Within just a few short weeks, I was lifting notably bigger weights compared to the beginning of the summer.

And at the end of the off-season I set multiple lifetime personal records, including new bests in 3RM front squats and power cleans.

Based on pre-season games and practices so far, I'm also feeling faster on the ice.

So you could say I'm very happy with my results since gaining strength and speed is exactly what I wanted to achieve with my off-season training."

From Back-Up Goalie to
Best Goaltender Award and All-Star in One Season

"I used to believe that goalies don't need to lift weights.

In fact, some goalie coaches had told me gaining upper body strength and size would be detrimental for my game because it would slow me down when stopping the puck with my arms.

That's why I had focused mostly on goalie technique and speed drills when training on my own.

At the same time, I also realized that I wasn't physically strong enough to play the game at a high level.

That soon changed when I started following Yunus' programs!

My body has matured physically a lot during the time I've been training with him.

I've gained muscle all over my body, my shoulders got broader, I got leaner, and my strength levels went through the roof.

As a result of all that, my on-ice performance improved tremendously.

I'm now much more explosive on the ice.

More agile in the crease.

Faster and able to get into a better position on rebounds.

Moving laterally and squaring up to the shooter feels effortless now thanks to all the lower body and core strength gains I've made.

Training under Yunus is intense and demanding. But at the same time, we have a fun, motivating atmosphere at the gym.

The best part is that he always comes up with new exercise variations that keep things fresh and interesting in addition to the tried and true heavy barbell lifts.

I've learned so many movements I had never even seen before, yet I feel they've benefited my performance immensely.

Here are a few key training lessons I've taken to heart:

- If you want progress, you MUST train hard. The competition isn’t resting on their laurels, so you've got to show up and put in the work every day to succeed.

- Going to the gym and just lifting some weights isn’t enough. You need a solid, quality program to really experience big gains.

- Unlike what I used to believe in the past, strength training is extremely important for goalies.

You need 100% focus and effort off the ice if you want to get ahead on the ice. You have the greatest window for progress in the off-season, so don't miss it by being lazy or doing things that don't improve your performance.

- Even when on-ice training takes priority during the season, you shouldn’t stop lifting heavy. It's the only way to improve all year long.

To any hockey player reading this, I highly recommend Yunus and his training methods. Not only is he a great strength coach, he's a great person as well."

Skinny Junior Player Adds 242 Pounds to His Lifts in a Single Summer – and Obtains a D1 College Scholarship!

"My training was in a major slump for the past three years.

Since I have always had trouble gaining strength and muscle, lifting light weights and doing a bunch of resistance band exercises got me nowhere. I ended my junior career a weak and skinny player. 

With my sights set on playing D1 hockey, I knew I wouldn't be able to compete at the next level unless I changed my workouts. So I contacted Yunus to help me prepare for the demands of the college game.

That paid off big time. Here's how my gym numbers improved this off-season:

  • Squat 100 kg / 220 pounds -> 135 kg / 297 pounds (+35 kg / +77 pounds)
  • Bench Press 80 kg / 176 pounds -> 110 kg / 242 pounds (+30 kg / +66 pounds)
  • Chin-Up 25 kg / 55 pounds -> 45 kg / 99 pounds (+20 kg / +44 pounds)
  • Hang Power Clean 75 kg / 165 pounds -> 100 kg / 220 pounds (+25 kg / +55 pounds)

Once I got back on the ice after the summer break, I immediately noticed how much more explosive my first steps felt. 

I'm an elastic athlete by nature but have always lacked the strength to take advantage of it. Now I feel like there's some real power behind my skating stride. It's also a confidence booster to know I can hold my own in board battles.

Another big issue I had in the past was my diet. I wasn't eating enough food to grow and I wasn't paying too much attention to food quality.

After Yunus took me to the grocery store and taught me what, when and how much to eat, and made me track my calories and macros, I understood how to eat for continued strength and muscle gains. 

I believe it's a major reason my lifts shot up this summer. I was finally fueling my body with the right types and amounts of food.

I also learned that brief gym sessions can lead to excellent progress. Whereas in the past I would pummel through workouts that lasted up to 3.5 hours, this summer some sessions took under an hour to complete. Yet my results were way better than before.

Needless to say, I would recommend Yunus' training methods to other hockey players. Any athlete who trains under him will learn how to lift properly and make great strides in their physical performance.

One last thing I want to point out: You can speed up your overall development as an athlete and get to the next level in your career a year or two earlier if you start quality off-ice training at a young age and take it seriously. 

Looking back, I should have reached out to Yunus already a couple of years ago. I believe it would have gotten me to where I am today a lot faster."

Julius Janhonen

American International College, NCAA D1

I was hitting personal records week after week and saw the gains I made in the gym carry over onto the ice...

"Before I started training with Yunus, I was focusing on too many things off the ice and had hit a plateau.

I was training too often and for too long at a time (up to 9x per week in the summer for 2-3 hours per session) but didn’t feel like I was making any noticeable progress.

I had built a solid aerobic base over the years, so playing big minutes was never the problem.

Strength and explosiveness were lacking, though, which limited my game.

After I started following Yunus’ training programs, progress came by quickly and I was hitting new personal records on power cleans, front squats, weighted chin-ups, and deadlifts week after week.

Most importantly, I saw improvements in the weight room carry over onto the ice.

As a smaller player (5’7) playing against bigger and heavier guys in the juniors and now at the college level, I have no trouble holding my own in board battles.

I can protect the puck with my body a lot better and can even remove bigger opponents from the puck, which certainly wasn’t the case before.

In addition, I noticed that my balance on skates has improved a lot and I can now handle my body much better even in unstable positions.

I would highly recommend Yunus’ training methods to other hockey players.

If you really want to push your physical limits and achieve results that you never expected to see, you should train under him.

Yunus has got an unparalleled passion for developing his athletes and he demands a lot from them.

But his training is smart and progress happens very fast. It’s not mentally or physically easy but it’s totally worth it."

Tuukka Totro

St. Olaf College, NCAA D3

In all my years of playing hockey,
Yunus is the best trainer I ever had.”

"In the past, my training was very cardio-based. Yes, I was in pretty good shape, but had trouble gaining muscle or strength.

I also had underdeveloped muscles in my body - especially my lower back and obliques. Fixing these muscular imbalances helped me build a solid base and improve my overall strength.

I feel like every part of my body got better after I started working with Yunus.

Most importantly, these gains translated to better performance on the ice. Here's how Yunus' off-ice training benefited my hockey skills:

- I got more powerful, which is very important for a smaller player like me.

All the strength and muscle I gained off the ice helped with stability when battling for loose pucks in the corners. Even against bigger guys, I felt like I could physically compete head-to-head with them.

My skating improved as well. Faster on the first few steps, my ability to push off and glide, on-ice stamina... Everything jumped up a notch or two.

- Thanks to the upper body, lower back and core strength gained in the gym, I became more dangerous on the ice as a forward with more speed and a harder shot.

Another thing worth mentioning is that I finally had a completely injury-free season.

For example, in previous years, I used to feel minor groin pain as the hockey season drew on. When I followed Yunus' training programs, that pain vanished. I believe a big part of that are all the adductor and core strengthening exercises he had me perform.

Not only are Yunus' training methods extremely effective, his attention to all the small but important details set him apart from other coaches.

In all my years of playing hockey, Yunus is the best trainer I ever had. Every day I spent with him at the gym, I learned something new.

Lifting weights, conditioning, speed, recovery - it's all there. Every single detail in Yunus' off-ice program is made to best serve hockey players. It truly is a complete training program for hockey.

"Because we didn't have a professional strength and conditioning coach at the club I play for, my off-ice training used to be far from effective.

Sure, I was lifting weights but there wasn't much rhyme or reason to it. I didn't have the knowledge to optimize my workouts on my own and didn't realize how much more I could improve under the right guidance.

So, when I got the opportunity to train with Yunus in the gym, it had an instant impact on my game.

For the first time, I grasped the importance of systematic off-ice training for hockey performance. The difference proper physical preparation can make is truly eye-opening.

From a lifting standpoint, my technique got a lot better on the main barbell movements and I made solid progress from the get-go. Since our training was much more versatile and better planned than in the past, my strength went up steadily and I got in much better shape.

Very few female players understand the untapped potential they've got inside and how much further they can push themselves in training. With Yunus, I learned my limits as an athlete are well beyond what I previously thought. I now know how to train for steady progress and can demand a lot more out of myself than before.

Most importantly, everything we did in the weight room prepared me for the game. The gains I made over the last two years have carried over to the ice big time. I'm not a tall goalie but I compensate for it with my explosiveness. Speed and agility in the crease has now become one of my biggest strengths.

My game really took off this past season. Because I was in such great shape, everything just felt so much easier.

I enjoyed continued success on a personal and team level. Our club won the National Championship, I was named First All-Star, and took home a silver medal with Team Finland at the Women's World Championship.

I recommend Yunus' training programs without hesitation. His training knowledge and ability to get the most out of athletes are second to none."

“... one of the best
hockey strength coaches in the business.

"I've known Yunus for a few years now, and what struck me from the beginning was his knowledge of and passion for hockey strength and conditioning. 

I remember being a bit skeptical about him at first since he never had a career as a hockey player. But I quickly realized he knows what he's talking about when it comes to making players stronger, faster and healthier.

His dedication to developing his athletes, ability to explain any drill or exercise in a training program, and tremendous coaching skills all set him apart from others and make him one of the best hockey strength coaches in the business.

I've implemented things that he has taught me with my hockey players competing for championships, and I can't thank him enough for that.

To any athlete who wants to become stronger and faster than their competition - and remain injury-free while doing so - I highly recommend Yunus' training methods."

"Through my own experiences, I know that off-ice training usually includes little more than bike + stretching and perhaps 3 x 8 reps of light squats during a hockey season here in Norway.

I’ve always wondered what attitudes other major hockey nations have regarding in-season training off the ice.

Are there any similarities?

Do they train harder than we do?

What are they doing differently?

Could this be part of the reason why Norway is a "little brother" in the sport of ice hockey?

To figure this out, I contacted the great Finnish club Espoo Blues and their strength coach Yunus Barisik and I got the opportunity to join them for training over 4 days. A wonderful experience that made a big impression on me.

Yunus has a philosophy that although it is hockey season, it is important to have progression in strength training and that one should not be afraid to lift big weights for low repetitions.

He justifies this by saying that if we are to stop the progression through the season, how then do we become stronger? And that it is not next week’s games that they train for, but the playoffs held in March.

During my time observing Yunus and his athletes, I witnessed 17-year-old Aarne Talvitie, captain of Finland U18 national team and 2017 NHL draft prospect, perform split squats with 140 kg (!).

You’re probably thinking now that he is one in a million, but the fascinating thing is that the rest of the team was approximately at 100-120 kg. Damn strong guys all of them with tremendous lifting form.

During one of the other sessions they deadlifted 3-5 reps with several players between 180-240 kg and this they did again with very good technique."
