Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata has spoken about his training routine with the official Chelsea website as revealed in the ‘The Work Behind’ of the Chelsea website.
On the time he arrives for training, the Spaniard said: “We need to be at Cobham an hour before training and I normally arrive about an hour and a half early. The first thing I do is eat breakfast with some of my team-mates and after that I do some stretching, or have treatment, with the physios.
“Then I go and brush my teeth, wash my face and start preparing my boots and kit to go out onto the pitch. Sometimes we will have a team meeting before we go outside, where we look at videos and movements of the other teams. Once we are out on the pitch we train very hard.”
Morata also revealed that he does extra work in the gym before and after training.
When asked if he does extra work before and after training, he responded: “Yes. Before training, if I don’t go to see the physio then I will spend some time in the gym working on stability or my abs, something like that.”
He also revealed that he does yoga sometimes, as he said: “Yes, here we have one of the best yoga instructors in the world and after training I sometimes go to visit him. It can be good to do these type of things.”
When asked if his diet changes before a game, the Chelsea record signing responded: “Yes, for sure. Probably two days after a game you might be able to eat a small piece of chocolate or something like that, but you definitely cannot do that leading up to a game. Before a match you have to be on top fitness, make sure you are powerful and eat healthily.”
