The Boys Are Back

After an off day on Monday, the boys were back in for a pair of training sessions on Tuesday. As is typically the case on Tuesday, the morning session was completed in the gym, with Chris Neville and the gang from Athletes Performance dividing the team up into four groups and running them through four separate stations that work on the players' strength and conditioning. Once everyone was done with those four stations, all the players gathered for a short sprinting session that closed out the morning workout.

After a quick lunch, the guys headed outside for a short training session that consisted mostly of a full sided, 11v11 game.

Other notes from the session...
  • Charles Alamo and Landon Donovan worked out on the side with Armando Rivas, as Alamo continues to rehab from knee surgery and Donovan is coming back from a tight right groin that ruled him out of the loss to Toronto, as well as the National Team's loss in England and Wednesday's game against Spain.

  • Also watching the session from the sidelines was former Galaxy legend Mauricio Cienfuegos, who was catching up with a number of friends after practice. Cien is currently coaching Nejapa F.C. in El Salvador and he helped to save them from relegation this past season. (Below you can see Cien with the Galaxy's equipment manager, Raul Vargas)

  • A week after suffering a concussion, Ely Allen was back on the field. He spent time playing both on the left wing and in the center of midfield.

  • Kyle Nakazawa and Michael Stephens, each of whom play for the Galaxy Rios Under-20s and UCLA, trained with the club today.
Speaking of the Rios U-20s, they will have a scrimmage against the LA Legends on Wednesday evening (5:30 p.m. at The Home Depot Center) before returning to league play on Sunday afternoon in Lancaster.

Lastly, the Reserve Division game between the Galaxy and Rapids that was originally scheduled for Sunday has been postponed and is scheduled to be made up in October when Colorado returns to Los Angeles.
