The entire AS Monaco professional squad stopped at the training center, La Turbie, on Monday. Throughout the day, players collected their training schedules, carefully prepared by the team’s technical and medical staff for the coming weeks.
They also took the opportunity to bring home equipment: bikes, kettlebells, devices to measure their heart rate, and an application that tracks the content of training sessions. “We have provided all of the players with equipment to meet their needs. Many players have taken bikes and machines from the training Center to be able to work at home, ” explained physical trainer Juanjo Del Ojo.
In order to work on physical fitness while promoting a level of uniformity, which is essential, the staff also worked on the format of the sessions offered: “We worked on the form of challenges. Each day, work is associated with a goal and each goal achieved earns points. The players are motivated because they want to win, it’s a good formula to maintain their conditioning. The players have reacted very well. ”
If the technical staff had to adapt to the situation by establishing these individualized training programs, the medical staff also had to respond to the health situation. Doctor Lluis Til-Pérez recapped the past few days and explained how it works on a daily basis.
Since Monday and having been placed in confinement, we continue to be in contact with the players every day, to ensure that everything is fine and to be able to act in the event of a special case arising. They also have an individualized nutritional program available.
Juanjo Del Oro talks about the content of the sessions:
Beyond the physical work itself, Juanjo Del Ojo and all of the staff of AS Monaco remain available to players during this period:
