Intensity was the key word at our Spanish training camp on Monday - not least the weather!
The first of three training sessions kicked-off with tough morning sprints at the golf course at 815am local time. These were sprints of varying distances but all involving running up hills.
With temperatures again tipping 30 degrees, the mid-morning session was in the gym and after lunch, the evening session was back to football at high pace.
The squad was split into two initially with Juande Ramos taking tactical work and Gus Poyet overlooking a one and two-touch possession exercise. The session finished with a game over a three-quarter pitch.
