    Antonio Conte reassembles his troops for morning and afternoon workouts as the countdown begins to tomorrow's departure for pre-season in Chatillon

    Juventus have returned to Vinovo to intensify their preparations ahead of Thursday evening’s departure for pre-season in Val d’Aosta.

    Following yesterday’s examinations conducted at Turin’s Istituto di Medicina dello Sport medical centre, Antonio Conte welcomed his players back to the club’s Juventus Center training base for morning and afternoon workouts.

    This morning saw the squad, still minus the 10 players involved on summer international duty, undergo a series of fitness checks devised by the Mapei Research Center.

    Three different types of tests were taken: the Mignoni, CMJ and HIT. The first, which detects the build up of lactic acid, involved the players running for six minutes at 13.5km/h. The second, used to calculate muscle quality and strength, saw the squad carry out a number of jumps on a piezoelectric platform. The third and final assessment, conducted to monitor recovery ability, consisted of ten repetitions of 25 metre sprints.

    These examinations, which produce detailed reports for Conte and his backroom staff on the players’ individual levels of fitness, will be repeated on several occasions throughout the 2013/14 campaign.

    The Bianconeri will undergo a further double training session tomorrow before making the short trip to their pre-season base in Chatillon.
