Harry Winks has revealed the details of the ‘remote training’ routine he and his Tottenham teammates are following amid the ongoing coronavirus crisis.
With football suspended until at least the end of April and the UK currently in lockdown, training is on hold for the Spurs squad meaning the players must ensure they stay fit at home.
And Winks, who posted an impressive tea-making video earlier this week (watch here), has been speaking to the club’s official website about what Tottenham’s players have been doing during their time training away from the club.
“It’s a bit strange for all of us, but I’ve got my head around it,” Winks said. “In terms of fitness, I’m fine, I’m mainly using the gym at my house. I’ve gym equipment here, a bike, a treadmill. The club has also given me a squat machine to use to stay strong.
“We’ve all been given a schedule, but it’s flexible, we can do it in our own time. So, for instance, I might have a lay in one day, but then I’ll work later. The important thing is to get it done.”
The midfielder went on to reveal how the club’s staff have stayed in touch with the players and how he is staying healthy by eating the right food.
He added: “The coaching and fitness staff drop us messages and stay in touch in case I have any questions. We also have instructions from the nutrition team on our food and a programme on that.
“We’ve just got to watch what we eat. I’m cooking as well – soups, a lot of salad, eggs, and a little bit of pasta.
“We’ve all been told (by the government) that we can go out for one piece of exercise a day, so I’ve been walking around where I live and other than that, staying home, relaxing and at the same time, staying fit. I’ve got a ball here as well so I’m out in the garden having a kick around!”
Despite the team’s poor form, Winks and Co. will be desperate to get back on the pitch when it is safe to do so and attempt to revive their push for Champions League qualification.
Harry Kane and Son Heung-min should be fit and available should the season resume, which will give Spurs a much better chance of meeting their objective.
