  3. WARMUP LIKE SPURS - P. E kit - Yoga mats/blocks (optional) TOP TIP Make some space in your living room or bedroom 20 MINS AIMS / SKILLS To understand how important a warmup and a cooldown is when exercising. DID YOU KNOW? If you’ve ever been to a football match, you may have seen the teams warm up out on the pitch before the game and cool down afterwards. At Spurs, players can also warm up and cool down behind the scenes in the ‘Warm Up Room’. 1. First, we need to Stretch like Sonny (Heung-Min Son) to make sure our muscles are ready for exercise. Start with the bottom of the body, stretching each necessary area for around 20-30 seconds. 2. Now it’s time to try out our fun exercise suggestions inspired by our First Team squad. Move around the space at a steady pace – keep safe! Dance Like Dele Jump Like Harry Handle like Hugo Tackle like Toby Sprint like Sissoko. Think about what muscle groups are being used for each action (e.g. what muscles does it take for us to jump high)? How is this different/the same when we are trying to catch a ball? 3. After you’ve done enough exercise it’s time to be As Cool as Lo Celso and start to cool down. This part is a very slow working of muscle groups, up and down, like your warm-up. Why do you think it’s important for professional footballers to cool down after playing? 3

  4. STRETCH LIKE SONNY Make sure our muscles are ready for exercise. Start with the bottom of the body, stretching each necessary area for around 20-30 seconds. JUMP LIKE HARRY Harry Kane is one of our own - he also loves to score a header! How high can we jump? DANCE LIKE DELE Show off your dance moves as if you’ve just scored for Spurs! HANDLE LIKE HUGO Hugo Lloris also jumps high, but as a goalkeeper, he can use his hands. Pretend you’re catching a cross on your jump! TACKLE LIKE TOBY Toby Alderweireld is great at tackling and clearing the ball. Kick the air as if you’re kicking a ball upfield! SPRINT LIKE SISSOKO Moussa Sissoko is renowned for his quick bursts of pace. Sprint on the spot for 5 seconds as fast as you can! BE AS COOL AS LO CELSO It is vital to warm down after exercising, just like the Tottenham Hotspur first team! 4

  5. HEALTH & WELLBEING CROSSWORD DID YOU KNOW? Before any game the first team squad consumes around 20L of liquids including water, around 6.5L during the match and around 8L afterwards. That’s nearly 35L worth of liquid for the squad every game and therefore 1311L per Premier League season. That’s nearly enough to fill up the ice bath in the home changing room!
