More fitness work

Frank Rijkaard’s Wednesday morning training session subjected the players to some especially demanding physical work.

In Barça’s first training session of the day ahead of tomorrow’s friendly against Dundee United, the players continued working to get their full fitness back. It was probably the toughest session they have endured so far.

Heart rates monitored

Each player trained with heart rate monitors on their wrists in order to get a statistical count on how they are coping with the workload. They also continued with the lactate tests that started on Tuesday.

Circuit training with shot on goal

The training began with the usual warm ups and drills. They then tackled a huge obstacle course that featured cones and hurdles, followed by a dribble and a sprint on goal. The coaching staff fed them balls towards the end of the exercise, which involved a spot of target practice.

Before the session, several Barça players posed for photographs with the two captains of the Saint Andrews University team and the president of the University’s Sports Association.
