Andy Murray is on Day Two of his off-season training intensive at the University of Miami and was joined again by fitness trainer Jez Green and compatriot Ross Hutchins, who should, IMO, always keep his shirt off rather than on.
Team Murray also got a surprise visit from another one of Andy's hot friends: UM tennis baller Dani Vallverdu from Venezuela (below) who we first discovered this past summer at Queen's Club. *reminisces then smiles*
Anyway, the world No.4 began with some tennis-football warm-up drills and then moved on to some speed and agility training including timed shuttle runs to either side of the service box and weight ball drills.
The team took their daily 3-hour midday break, hitting up Whole Foods for a serious sampling of sushi. Yums.
The day continued with some weightroom work. The hour-and-a-half session included the dreaded chin-up exercise with a 10KG weight tied to his waist. Can someone say painful?
It's probably a great idea, then, to end the day with some Bikram "hot" yoga to stretch out those tired muscles and release lactic acids after this workout.
Here's a breakdown of what the 21-year old had to suffer through today:
Calorific intake: 5, 800
Weights: upper body
Tennis: 2 hours
Bikram yoga: 1.5 hrs
Sun tanning: all day, every day (hopefully)
OMG - So Andy gets to play tennis, do yoga, workout, AND stuff his face silly all while working on his tan? So fun! Where can I sign up for this program?
