The Annual Australian Strength and Conditioning conference is in Sydney this year. Again, with a great line up its an event not to be missed.


Original article
The "Bench Press is another test that has been tweaked a fair amount over the years and will be revised again this year as the league incorporates more technology into the combine. Instead of going for reps, players will now lift 50% of their body weight in three repetitions at maximum velocity. Per the NHL, a "GymAware" device will measure a player's ability to produce power with the results measured in watts per kilogram.

In years past, when players were required to lift for maximum reps, NHLers Colin WilsonRyan O'Reilly and Samuel Girard were top performers in their respective draft classes."
