Castilla works without frills

They move some furniture and that’s it. This is the case of the midfielder Miguel Baeza. Stretching, plyometry, strength with elastic bands … Also with stationary bikes, one of the most affordable items and that some already had at home. Some like Fran Garcia, he was luckier and upon returning to his home in Bolaños de Calatrava (Ciudad Real) he was able to race in the family garden. Many are taking advantage of the attics of their buildings, such as the central one Mario Gila. In some situations, it is the pairs or relatives of the players themselves who help them in some exercises, especially those related to the ball. The castillista squad led by Raúl does not know, like the older ones, when his championship will resume and he is having to get used to training in tight spaces and with the little material of fitness they have at their disposal, part of it borrowed directly from Valdebebas … “They are coping as best they can,” the agent of one of Castilla’s players explains to AS. “In our case, he has also received extra instructions from the personal trainer who usually helps him out in the summer to get in tune before the preseason, everything is done online, with WhatsApp, videos …”.

The Andalusian striker went down to Seville (the midfielder Martín Calderón made it to Jerez) before movement restrictions were decreed by the state of alarm. Although he still uses crutches and a joint clamp, you are doing exercises under the telematic review of the first team doctors. Madrid does not neglect the renovations.Another aspect is the mental matter. The white entity has asked them to be cautious with the content they show on their social networks and most have limited themselves to teaching how they exercise, their achievements in video games such as Fortnite and the FIFA20 (They even play games wearing their own official shirt, so they do Gelabert) and above all, to challenge the viral game of toilet paper in the first days of quarantine.
