Everyone knows that Cristiano Ronaldo’s fitness levels are very high, especially since he is 39 years old. The Portuguese striker maintains great shape due to his workout routine and his diet. Lionel Messi is similar to maintaining a high level at an age many did not expect. He is shining for Inter Miami, and he maintains a great physical condition thanks to the Head of Strength and Conditioning coach, Ben Young. The conditioning coach spoke about Messi’s commitment to keeping healthy and fit during the training sessions at Inter Miami and mentioned something similar to what Ronaldo does in his training sessions. Young said, “Messi is first in, last out, a true professional. He does his own individual activation and strength sessions, he will even be in training the next day after being away in an international camp in Argentina. He’s in his rhythm, his routine and that is why he’s at the top and has stayed there. He ticks all the boxes, he pushes himself but also does all his recovery work.”

Young describes the workouts Messi and the rest of the Inter Miami team do to prepare for games. Young said, ”We always want to make sure that the players can thrive in the most intense parts of the game and you do that by the training we expose them to.‌ We systematically expose the players to various training stimuli that mimic the demand of the game and when appropriate we exceed the game demands to ensure they are completely prepared for the toughest of moments.”
