Spanish Success

Lancashire's players are now back in England having completed a successful fortnight of warm weather fitness and cricket training at Desert Springs in Almeria, Spain.

Two groups of six players completed three sessions a day for five days as they stepped up their physical preparations for the upcoming 2013 season.

Phil Scott, Lancashire's Strength and Conditioning Coach said: "Having dry weather and grass meant the players could really throw themselves into the fielding drills and increase the volume and intensity of their throwing and catching which is really important as they get closer to the season. The lads worked incredibly hard throughout the week, and since we've been back the gains they have made are already becoming obvious."

The training camps, which were a joint initiative between David Roberts Physiotherapy and Desert Springs, were also a great opportunity for new players to integrate into the team and spend time learning about the value of nutrition, diet, adequate rest and recovery techniques.
