Tottenham Hotspur are among the clubs who have sent innovative fitness technology to their players to help them during the lockdown, according to a report in Football.London.
While the nation is in lockdown in an effort to flatten the coronavirus transmission curve, monitoring training performance is reportedly proving to be quite difficult for clubs.
Football.London reveal that most clubs have told players to focus on strength and conditioning work as not everyone has the space to do ball work at home and there is still uncertainty over if and when the season will resume.
Spurs have held fitness sessions over Zoom and other video conferencing platforms but it is claimed that the club is using creative ways to monitor the players’ progress.
While GPS vests are usually used to monitor player training at Hotspur Way, it is revealed that the club are now working with STAT Sports to provide their squad with the equipment, which will allow data from individual players’ workouts to be fed back to their club through an app.
Meanwhile, Everton and Arsenal are said to have provided their players with individual GPS trackers to monitor their training.
