Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen has opened up on his training methods that helps keep him fit and prepared for each game.

The 21-year-old has played an important role for Chelsea so far this season, and it’s safe to say that he has been impressive in the games he has played.

Speaking about what he does before training, he told the official Chelsea website: “Normally, if we’re training at 10.30am I get here around 9am so I have plenty of time to prepare for the session. I enjoy eating breakfast here so I take my time over that and then most days I will go to the gym and do a bit of work on my hamstrings and glutes because I’ve had some back problems in the past and I want to make sure it doesn’t happen again. I’ll do a few exercises and then go to the physios to have my ankles strapped.”

When asked what he does after training, Christensen responded: “If my body is sore I like to have a massage or an ice bath, I tried yoga once but it’s not for me, it’s too stretchy.”
