  1. My problem was opposite. I used to take pride of the fact I can eat everything and anything because I would burn it all off on the ice. When Covid hit my eating habits stayed the same but my physical activity stopped. I get where ur coming from. I just hope this omicron bs doesn’t shut us down again.
  2. I’m gonna go for it. The thing is last time I needed something like this done I had to leave my skates on the widening machine overnight at the LHS, they bake them and open them up. Didn’t have time to take them today, but I have a game tomorrow night and I’m wondering if I get them done early in the morning, will they be okay to skate in around 7pm? another thing I’m wondering about, it’s inevitable for us hockey players to loose insane amounts of weight when we start skating regularly again, I just hope by the time this happens, the skates won’t be too wide.
  3. They said the skates would tear or stretch from EE to EEE and possibly separate from the outsole during skating I’ve been going to them for years I’ve had my skates stretched and punched this is the first time they refused
  4. Yeah that’s what I did except during summer and late through the fall season I was wearing flip flops maybe that’s why
  5. Big time !! Lol but I don’t think that changes the feet ?
  6. I’ve had a long layoff from hockey since the pandemic first hit. I just started skating in November,I’ve been on the ice about 4 times so far and these skates that used to fit so beautifully before I stopped playing are now killing the forefoot on both feet. I tried 3 re-bakes and it didn’t make a difference. The top guys at my local LHS warned me it’s not a good idea to punch the skates out. They are a EE fit.I always had wide feet, now all of a sudden I’m a EEE. How is this possible? I bought these vapor 1x 2.0 the first day they came out. Should I just get a new pair or go ahead and stretch them out?
  7. Yes lots of stretching, rolling on the foam roller, I use rubber bands to target specific muscles around the knee, but exercises that work for me might not work for you, or they might do more damage to your condition. Talk to a physiotherapist brother, u wouldn’t need ibuprofen or anything if you have a physiotherapist write you up a program to follow before skating , after skating and on days you aren’t on the ice.
  8. Do you do any phsyio for ur knees ? I found it helps a lot it’s just some exercises I do at home before stepping on the ice or working out.
  9. I’m happy for you. I got a long way to go lol.
  10. Does anyone know if there are fake nexus or supreme adv sticks from China being sold online ?
  11. She recommended me to find something with compression but nothing serious.
  12. What are the best hockey braces for arthritis?
  13. Practice, game, pick up, stick and puck or even pond, this isn’t a game you approach casually. It’s a dangerous game and with one unlucky deflection, collision, at high speeds can be life altering. That’s why players must be mentally AWAKE and AWARE every time they step on the ice. Yes accidents happen, but thinking fast can keep you out of harms way. My heart hurts for this guy and his family. God be with them.
  14. So now you know it’s all in the head. That’s why a sports psychologist would help the kid the OP posted about.
  15. That’s actually a good idea.. u refreshed my memory ive read somewhere a long time ago about a harness kind of thing ..
  16. It’s too late he has it all. Just want to keep him protected accidents happen
  17. Hey guys luckily source for sports happened to be open they did the kid’s measurements and fitting curb side. They did a great job. We went with ccm tacks, cute little skates lol. He was so excited and his feet weren’t hurting at all on the ice. I started him out with those skate helpers that you hold onto for balance and push around. Halfway through the session he kept pushing the thing away because he wanted to skate on his own lol he was arguing with me so the only way was to let him find out himself. Fell on his bum He has a helmet,shin and elbow pads so far next thing will be jockstrap and pants.
