Fitness coach Rob Lee impressed with player fitness levels

2 July 2019

Rovers fitness coach Rob Lee is impressed with the fitness levels shown by the players since their return to pre-season training.

The players have been back at Cantley Park since Thursday, with three days of intense double sessions followed by a five-day training camp at La Manga Club in Spain.

Lee said: “They are where we want them to be, if anything they are in front of that to be honest.

“The first two to three weeks are quite general on fitness, I lead a bit more in terms of drills and as we get closer into the start of the season the other coaches take over and I advise them on loads.”

Lee is among the backroom staff in Spain for the week, and says there are real benefits to warm weather training at this time of the year.

He added: “With the heat you get a better response internally than in a cooler climate, basically you get greater returns for doing the same amount of work.

“It’s great for the lads to be in and around each other a bit more, we can spend a bit more time with them individually and give advice where needed.”
