3 Brushing Intervals for You & Your Team

I’m super pumped about this little project. I hope you share it with your team and get good use out of it for years to come.

There are a few struggles I’ve come across when trying to do brushing intervals; both dry land and on-ice:

  1. Finding an interval timer that lines up with the work:rest ratios I’m looking for
  2. Trying to visualize brushing and the demands of the different types of sweep down the ice
  3. Keeping the interval in an easy-to-find space

And I think I’ve addressed all 3 of these struggles with episodes 40, 41 and 42.

  1. These are my 3 go-to brushing intervals I use year-round
  2. I added in some in-game visualization opportunities
  3. You can save it to a playlist on your fave ap!

The best part? I’ve made them all FREE!

So please please please, use them, share them, and go kick some brushing butt!!!
