    Sean Abram demonstrated for us during a development camp at my rink last year. I swear he was so close to cracking his head on the ice. IRL there's even less clearance....

    EDIT: Sorry, the last pic kind of took my breath away....
    Oh. Um. Good morning, Mr Aaron.

    I still can't believe how big his thighs are. He really has a speed-skater's build. And those thighs wouldn't look out of place in the forward line of a rugby team...

    I know! His calves look strong, too. And he's been working on his pecs and biceps!

    Fearless...and a little naughty...

    SH: What did all your [hockey] penalties come from? High sticking, slashing, fighting?

    MA: Most of them were when I went to the net. If there was a rebound, I’d get into the goalie’s face or shove my stick into the goalie’s pads or do something that was not right, so that was a problem. Sometimes with the bigger guys, I would jump into a hit, so I’d actually get off my skates [jump off the ice], so that was really not legal.


    And, WOW, the story of his broken back and the recuperation/rehab period is much worse than we thought, took much longer to heal than we knew, and still bothers him today!

    EDIT: New pic from the article...

    dardar, board etiquette dictates to avoid posting multiple posts. If no one has posted under you then you can just edit your own post & add additional information, or in your case, more twitters.

    Enjoying all the videos/pics of Max. Has he started training for next season? Any announcement about music and programs?

    I really enjoyed his FS last year...very intense and powerful. Looking forward to seeing him in Boston.

    Max's long program is a "modern Carmen". His short is, according to him, "sassy and upbeat".

    Glad to see so many posts; thanks, and keep up the good work, y'all!

    We know that Max is super into sports. Not only his own hockey and figure skating, but he has also expressed an interest in eventually becoming a sports agent. I've noticed by his Twitter account that he is really enjoying his training time at the US Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs. He's become friends with members of the women's bobsled team, a shooter, a member of the women's soccer team, and a gymnast! He also follows a boxer or two.

    And he's gotten to know other sports coaches and trainers...so he is building a good professional network, as well as making diverse and interesting friends.
