Athletic Club’s Premier team had a light training session as of 11:00 hours on the pitch at La Calderona followed by a work-out in the gym and spa session. Lunch was scheduled at 13:30 hours and in the afternoon they were off to Mestalla to have their last training session prior to the final. Afterwards, Captain Joseba Etxeberria and Coach Joaquín Caparrós will give a press conference.
On the other hand, in the morning, the Athletic Club Medical Staff visited La Calderona’s International Centre for Sports Rehabilitation. Josean Lekue, Medical Services boss; Bernardo Requena, physical strength trainer; and Paco Angulo, First Division Team doctor, saw with their own eyes the CIRD’s facilities for the recuperation and physical training of elite sportsmen and women.
Paul Dorochenko, the centre’s director, showed them the gymnasium, where a team of CIRD physiotherapists have worked over the last couple of day with striker Francisco Sandaza, from the Scottish Dundee United team, athlete Antonio Reina and Álex Geijo, a Levante UD player.
The Athletic Club representatives showed particular interest in magneto therapy and in clinic-master (micro-currents). Furthermore, they saw a video of Paul Dorochenko’s work on “Active Concept” (neuronal reprogramming designed for sportspeople who have recovered recently from an injury or to improve small details of their daily physical work) and, then in person, a demonstration of the FP3 Laser’s power and its possible medical uses for muscular injuries.
