'The first is to take the next step in terms of pre-season conditioning, the second is team bonding and the third is personal planning.
'Some players may need to reduce a bit of fat percentage, others need to strengthen the lower body and others the upper body.
'Others need extra aerobic work and others just need to wait for the tactical work, which will start this week.
'Every player will do between two and four different sessions each day, which is something you can only do when you're away from your family and away from home.''
