A Look Inside Chiefs’ Training

Kaizer Chiefs Head of Sports Science, Jarred Marsh emphasised the importance of the Amakhosi squad committing to a strict routine.

The decision about the 2019/20 campaign is expected to be made in the next few days, with the country set to move to level 3 of the COVID-19 nationwide lockdown.

It’s been just over two months since domestic football was suspended indefinitely and teams in the top flight have already become accustomed to virtual training in the current circumstances.

However, there are still concerns surrounding players’ physicality and conditioning, especially the risks of becoming a ‘couch’ potato, says Chiefs’ head of Sport Science.

“We advise the players to stick to their normal eating patterns. Lockdown is restricting in terms of movement. We are not engaging much into constructive movement and the danger is becoming a couch potato. It is tempting to constantly engage in snacking, which can result into dire effects of gaining weight. Key to nutrition is having to serve in moderation. In terms of menus, again, try to keep to your usual meals. This is also mostly a time for upskilling and learning a lot in the kitchen,” Marsh explained on Chiefs official website.

“We don’t know how much time we will be given to prepare for the remaining matches. It is going to be important after lockdown to prepare the team adequately. Lack of match exposure may cause injures and hamper the results and progress. We are looking forward to the day we return to the pitches,” he added.
