Hard work marks the kick-off of the preseason
CANCUN, June 20.- The UANL Tigres kicked off the preseason today in the Riviera Maya with an intensive physical workout on the beach under the orders of their physical trainer, Guillermo Orta.
The morning training session had been scheduled to take place on the golf course, but since a delayed flight made the team arrive late at the host hotel, it was switched to the beach.
Dozens of foreign and Mexican tourists watched as the 27 players warmed up and then carried out strength, power and resistance training exercises.
Jürgen Damm was the only one who didn’t join the team on the beach since he is in the rehabilitation stage of recovery from an injury that prevented him from competing in the Copa América with the Mexican National Team. Damm worked out in the gym under the supervision of the physiotherapist, Josué de la Rosa.
The rest of the squad, including the new players such as Ismael Sosa, Luis Quiñones, Luis Rodríguez and Miguel Herrera, worked hard on the beach before breakfast.
Tigres’ manager Ricardo Ferretti will be attending the afternoon training session, which is scheduled for 17:00 horas, at the hotel’s football field.
