3. Set your goals. It will keep you focused and working towards something.

4. Work with a training partner as it’s a good way to add competitiveness and help push yourself. If you train with someone who is at a similar level to you then you will help push each other.

5. Proper sleep is very important for you to get the most out of training. “I go to bed early and get up early, especially before matches. Sleep helps your muscles recover which is really important.”

6. Proper warm-up properly prevents injury before any activity. “In training we do a few laps of the pitch, stretching and cardio warm-up exercises. Make sure you do something similar in your training, even if it is jogging to the gym or a warm-up on the treadmill or bicycle.”

7. Mix it up. “I recommend a combination of cardio (running and rowing) and weight training to ensure that workouts target all areas of the body and increase both strength and stamina. It also helps to keep it interesting.”

8. High intensity is important to get your blood pumping and to increase stamina. “We do a lot of sprinting drills in training and they can be incorporated into your workout whether you are in the gym or outdoors.” Try and add it to every workout you do.

9. Cardio sessions are important for building up endurance and stamina and staying trim. “Try to do periods of around 30 minutes, increasing the number of sessions as you get stronger.”

10. Fit in exercise wherever you can. You can do an abs workout in your bedroom when you wake up in the morning or before you go to bed. If you get into a routine then it makes it easier as it will become a habit.

11. A proper workout and a good diet is the best combo. “I eat a high protein diet, with lots of wholegrain carbs, fruit and vegetables and avoid sugary foods. I love eating fish, especially the Portuguese dish bacalhau à Braz, and at restaurants I’ll order a steak with salad.”

12. Always stay hydrated. “Drinking water is so important. I also avoid alcohol.”

13. Eat regularly. “If you train regularly it’s important to keep energy levels high to fuel your body for better performance. I sometimes eat up to six smaller meals a day to make sure I have enough energy to perform each session at a top level.”
