In the case of Real Madrid, between 10 to 15 players will go to Doha to play in the World Cup in November and December.

Pintus’ work was decisive last season

The World Cup in Qatar has shaken up the plans of Real Madrid and most of the big clubs that have a lot of international players. In the case of Real Madrid, between 10 to 15 players will go to Doha to play in the World Cup in November and December. Faced with this unprecedented situation, Real Madrid fitness trainer Antonio Pintus has already put together a unique plan for all the World Cup players and another for those who’ll stay at Valdebebas during this time. Pintus’ work was decisive last season, as the team’s physical strength showed in the campaign’s final stretch, as they won LaLiga and the Champions League. This term, Pintus has divided the season into three work phases. The first phase is from this Monday until August 10, when Los Blancos have the UEFA Super Cup final.

Antonio proceed with the ideal individual plan for each based on this information

Until this week, he has carried out conditioning and workload drills to find out the physical condition of each player, and he’ll proceed with the ideal individual plan for each based on this information. “It’s a test designed to determine the players’ aerobic and anaerobic thresholds and their current power,” Pintus told Real Madrid’s official media. “The mask works to analyse oxygen and carbohydrates. We need to know the percentage of one and the other to determine the player’s current condition. The result helps to personalise or at least give some direction to the team’s work. Pre-season training is based on an aerobic foundation of long runs which is then used hand in hand with the direction and objective of shorter and faster runs.”

From August 1 to August 9, there will be special preparation for the UEFA Super Cup

“I can find out from these tests if the players still need a long, low-intensity base running work or if I can start working on a more intense and faster training.” Then there are the matches of the tour of the United States, which will help the players get into the rhythm of the competition. From August 1 to August 9, there will be special preparation for the UEFA Super Cup against Eintracht Frankfurt and the start of LaLiga and the Champions League. The second phase comes with the World Cup. From November 21 to December 4, it is effectively pre-season for the players who stay in Madrid. From December 4 to the end of the year, there will be rest for the internationals who return and fine-tuning.

 

In the third phase, from January 2023 onwards, there will be specific conditioning for the most exhausted players who return from the World Cup. “The break in training in November due to the World Cup will be good for me because we can do another pre-season and work a little bit more for the players who stay behind,” Pintus added. “It will be different for the players who’re going to the World Cup. They’ll have to rest 100 per cent when they come back and then return to work gradually. It’s going to be completely different for the two groups.”
