Spurs star Harry Winks reveals what training at home is like
Harry Winks has taken to the club’s official site to give us an idea of what it is like to train from home. With the coronavirus pandemic spreading across the world, football has been suspended and players asked to self isolate at home.
They have, however, not been idle and have been following training regimes tailored specifically for each of them. This has been done with the view of ensuring that required fitness levels are maintained for when the season resumes.
With players unable to access the club’s training facilities, Spurs have made sure that they are in want for nothing. The club is providing players with any equipment they may require to fulfil their programs such as exercise bikes, rollers, and weights.
All aspects taken care of
Winks revealed that although strange at first, he has grown used to the new demands placed on him. The midfielder is currently training in his own personal gym that is equipped with all the necessary equipment.
“We’ve all been given a schedule, but it’s flexible, we can do it in our own time”
He revealed that although each player has been given a schedule, it is flexible with the only compulsion being to get it done. The distance has not been a hindrance for Jose Mourinho and his staff who are keeping regular tabs on the players.
Every player has also been assigned a contact each from the medical and sports science teams to help oversee their home exercise programs and ensure they are having no issues. The club has also taken steps to ensure that the players recovering from injuries have access to video sessions with the physios.
More than just exercise
Other aspects of training such as nutrition are also taken care of while the players are free to send queries on any doubts they may have. Players are contacted regularly by a nutritionist and they receive regular recipe cards, while an external performance chef is delivering fresh fruit and vegetable boxes.
“We’ve just got to watch what we eat. I’m cooking as well – soups, a lot of salad, eggs, and a little bit of pasta.
Winks has admitted to missing being out on the pitch. In spite of that, he recognizes the need to stay inside at the moment and has urged people to take care and stay safe.
