Steve Davis says its important to get balance right to avoid injuries.
With a gruelling six weeks of pre-season training all mapped out for them, Steve Davis says it is important that fatigue does not lead to injuries. The Alex boss has revealed that his players will be asked to train on weekends and over the next six weeks they will receive around just three days off.
The Crewe squad have already undergone two double sessions this week, as the manager takes a more hands on approach to the fitness work.
Steve told crewealex.net: “The planning has gone well and the next six weeks is all mapped out for them. It isn’t set in stone and there has to be flexibility at times as they recover but I think they have three days off pencilled in.
“There will be some down time and some of the training will be less intense but there is a great variation this season. We will do some recovery sessions with them, some tactical work and I will introduce some spinning as well.
“It will be tough going and some of the players have already commented on how hard it has been over the last few days. It will be a lot more intense but it also important that we get that balance right and we don’t overdo it.
The boss added: “When the players are tired and their bodies are fatigued then they become more prone to potential injuries. The main objective of any pre-season is to make sure they are fit and ready but you don’t want players to suffer set-backs with injuries.”
