The MK Dons squad were put through their paces on Tuesday as pre-season training continued.
Firstly, Karl Robinson’s men underwent a yo-yo test, which is an intermittent running assessment that pushes participants to the limit with a focus on determining football specific fitness.
Defensive duo George Baldock and Lee Hodson were the last two players standing but Head of Sports Science Damien Doyle told MK Dons Player that he was pleased with the whole group.
“It went really well,” Damien said. “The got higher than expected scores on their first day back. We aim for the boys to reach the 30s but we had some hit level 50. I was really pleased and the group looked really good.”
After a brief rest, the players were sent out onto the Woughton training pitch for the first time since their return to take part in both fitness and football-specific sessions.
