Pic Special: Boxing Clever
Newcastle United's stars pulled on their boxing gloves on Thursday afternoon as they were welcomed back from their holidays with a double training session.
After working up a sweat on the training pitches on the morning, the players were split into two groups with one set heading to the gym for some intensive boxercise and the rest being put through their paces outside on exercise bikes and various weights.
Masseur Micky Holland led the boxing session and was certainly pulling no punches as he worked the lads to their maximum, while strength and conditioning coach Duncan French oversaw the al fresco workout.
And snapping another exclusive gallery for nufc.co.uk was Club Photographer Ian Horrocks, for whom this is a 19th pre-season campaign with the Magpies.
