Football might be on hold for the foreseeable future but the players must keep themselves fit to be ready play and some have found fun and unique was to keep themselves at the peak of physical condition.
Some players are lucky enough to have their own private gyms and swimming pools to train in while others have been provided with individual training programmes by their clubs as a statement from Liverpool FC informed, “Players have been given individual programmes to follow during this period…”

In a Daily Mail article, the Arsenal physio Gary Lewin has suggested how the Premier League clubs will attempt to keep their players fit and expressed his own concerns about a player returning to training and testing positive for the Coronavirus, “You could import treadmills, watt bikes or cross trainers and, water work could be done, although not in a public pool… The other logistical issue around resumption is players who then test positive. As it stands, the whole squad would self-isolate for a week, meaning more cancelled fixtures”.
Keeping Fit can be Fun
