Must see: Chris Kreider's amazing pool jump

Chris Kreider of the New York Rangers demonstrates the amazing pool trick he is able to do thanks to his grueling offseason workout schedule.

Rangers forward Chris Kreider was blessed with a few gifts at birth that set him on a path toward NHL stardom. But if he ever reaches his potential, it will be hard work, and not his genes, that gets him there.

Kreider's game is built around his speed, and that part of his speed comes from a punishing off-season workout schedule. The gang over at Men's Journal broke down the grueling sessions that not only give Kreider one of the most explosive first steps in the NHL, but also allow him to perform this amazing pool trick. Remember kids, don't try this at home ... until at least, like Kreider, you've mastered the 1,000-pound sled push.
