Pic Special: Tour Training - Box Office
It's not just been ballwork for the Magpies' squad during their tour of Germany.
On Sunday afternoon, as their second session of the day, the players commandeered a nearby gym where they were put through a gruelling boxing workout.
Summer signing Romain Amalfitano got a little too enthusiastic at one point, going through the pads and accidentally catching assistant manager John Carver, but it was all in good spirits and raised a big smile from the French midfielder.
Standing ringside, snapping the best of the action, was Club Photographer Ian Horrocks, who has created this exclusive gallery of the lads in action.
