Alex Galchenyuk is a heck of a young hockey player, that much is quite clear. In a video shared by 25CH on Facebook today, we got a glimpse into what he's getting up to during his offseason training. In short, it is quite the sight to behold.
I consider myself to be a pretty strong individual. I train between four and six times per week, and I can lift my fair share of weight. That being said, I highly doubt that I could perform the same weighted box jumps he's doing in this video. I can't tell how much weight he's holding, but it looks like a fair bit.
This is pretty advanced stuff, and not only is he doing it seemingly with relative ease, but he just looks huge. Obviously he is doing everything in his power to make sure he's ready for the coming season. Very encouraging.
Last season may have been trying for most Canadiens fans, but if this video is any indication, Alex Galchenyuk has every intent of making next year much better.
