August makes FC Bayern kickers sweat a lot.
We explain how Julian Nagelsmann sets the course for successful months after a successful start to the season.
Munich - The FC Bayern stars not only work up a sweat because of the summer temperatures in Munich.
The training sessions on Säbener Straße are also really tough.
Strikingly up-to-date: Before the ball is used, there is often a small circle on the program.
The players go through various sprint stations: among other things, with time measurement, with elastic resistance rope or short steps after obstacle jumps, as reported by tz.de.

The so-called Atreq Speed Resistor was also used on Wednesday.
The stars are divided into groups of two and wear a harness.
The person behind provides the load by holding on to the band attached to the harness for a short time while the runner tries to sprint with maximum effort.
This playful exercise is used at FC Bayern Munich to increase acceleration, anaerobic endurance and lower body strength.
At the beginning of the sessions there are usually stabilization exercises, and at the end there are often more intensive runs.
The new signings Matthijs de Ligt (22/came for 67 million euros from Juventus Turin) and Mathys Tel (17/came for 20 million euros from Stade Rennes) as well as Kingsley Coman (26), who was still suspended against Wolfsburg on Sunday (5:30 p.m.) even put in extra position-specific training on Monday, while the rest of the team was given the day off by head coach Julian Nagelsmann (35).
Sadio Mané (30/came from Liverpool FC for 32 million euros) used the day for a relaxed running training session on the lawn alongside fitness boss Prof. Dr.
Holger Broich (47).
FC Bayern motto for 2022/23: Every training day counts
The fact is: Bayern Munich is getting fitter and fitter after the short pre-season including a one-week marketing tour in the USA with stations in Washington DC and Green Bay.
information, the German record champions want to use the long training weeks in the Champions League-free August to get the most out of it and to prepare the players as best as possible for the hammer season plus winter world championship in Qatar.
The Munich motto: Every training day counts.
“Today I already feel a lot fitter than when I started the preparations, even though I did a few runs during my vacation.
The famous turning runs of our athletics guru Holger Broich are always a point of reference.
A few weeks ago the gasping started, now it's back on one buttock," writes Thomas Müller (32) in the current issue of his newsletter.
"While we players don't necessarily love this type of endurance training, we know it's an important cornerstone of a successful season."
