Cristiano Ronaldo is back in training with Juventus. According to tests, the Portuguese superstar is in even better shape than before the lockdown. He wants to gain additional advantages with a shoe trick.
After two months on his home island, Ronaldo returned to Italy in early May. Because of the corona pandemic, the five-time world football player had to spend two weeks in domestic isolation.
CR7 is not on the rotten skin all the time, as could also be followed on social media. On Tuesday, according to “AS”, he even came to the training ground four hours before his teammates to complete some individual training sessions and tests.
Judging by the results, the 35-year-old is said to have returned in even better shape than before the season break – his intense training regime and his iron discipline during the quarantine apparently paid off.
In addition to football and fitness, Pilates and swimming are also a must at the Portuguese. To do this, he follows a strict nutritional plan: Ronaldo eats six different meals a day – often pasta and chicken for his protein and carbohydrate budget, of course always without salt.
For breakfast, he usually indulges in an orange or pineapple juice, but otherwise he only drinks water. He also attaches great importance to his sleeping habits, for which he even consulted a sleep coach: So he tries to reach his performance limit with power napping.
New “wonder weapon” on your feet?
In addition, the exceptional athlete is said to use new, rugby-inspired studs to gain an additional advantage on the pitch. According to “Tuttosport”, CR7 hopes that changing its studs will give it a stronger grip on the lawn and make it faster to run.
Montpellier striker Andy Delort has been on the road with this stud model since last year, which are made of a kind of rubber (instead of metal) and should allow greater flexibility and speed. Delort was the fastest player in Ligue 1 this season at 36.8 km / h.
Series A will continue its championship operations on June 20. There are still twelve rounds to play in the championship, which has been interrupted since March 9.
