Real Madrid and the majority of the major clubs with a large number of international players have had their preparations disrupted by the World Cup in Qatar. Between 10 and 15 Real Madrid players will travel to Doha to compete in the World Cup in November and December. The Real Madrid athletes engage in gym work When faced with this unusual circumstance Antonio Pintus, the fitness coach for Real Madrid, has already created a special plan for each World Cup player as well as one for those who will be staying in Valdebebas during this time. The contribution of Pintus to Real Madrid’s triumph last year The team’s physical prowess emerged in the later stages of the previous season thanks to Pintus’ efforts, and they went on to win both the Champions League and LaLiga Santander. Pintus divided the season into three labor phases during this term. The first phase lasts from this coming Monday to Los Blanos’ UEFA Super Cup final on August 10. He has been conducting fitness and workload drills up until this week to assess each player’s physical condition. Based on this information, he will then move forward with the best specific plan for each player. Pintus explained to Real Madrid’s official media that the test was created to determine the players’ aerobic and anaerobic thresholds as well as their present power. “The mask analyzes carbs and oxygen. To ascertain the player’s current condition, we need to know the ratio of one and the other.” The outcome aids in personalizing the job being done by the team, or at the very least, provides some direction.” Long runs serve as the aerobic base for preseason training, which is subsequently used to guide and achieve the goals of shorter, faster runs. These tests will allow me to determine whether the athletes still require a lengthy, low-intensity base running session or whether I can begin developing a more intense and accelerated training program. enhancing physical condition during Real Madrid’s preseason tour The players will be able to get into the competitive rhythm by participating in the matches of the American tour. There will be extra preparation from August 1 to August 9 for the UEFA Super Cup match against Eintracht Frankfurt, the opening of LaLiga Santander, and the Champions League. Phases two and three of Pintus’ strategy The World Cup ushers in the second phase. The players who remain in Madrid experience their preseason from November 21 to December 4. For the returning foreigners from December 4 until the end of the year, there will be rest and fine-tuning. The players who are the most worn out after the World Cup will receive specialized conditioning during the third phase, starting in January 2023. Pintus continued, “The World Cup-related break in training in November will be helpful for me because we can conduct another pre-season and work a little bit more for the guys who stay behind. “For the athletes traveling to the World Cup, things will be different. When they return, they must rest completely before resuming work gradually.” For the two groups, it will be radically different.”
