Rob Green is undertaking extra training sessions in a bid to keep himself at the peak of his physical fitness for QPR this season.
The 33-year-old Rangers keeper works with a personal trainer three times a week, in addition to the club’s own daily training sessions at Harlington.
Green began the regime, which he says is far more physically demanding than the average training session, last season after he lost his place in the side to Julio Cesar.
And the Rs keeper says the added workouts are paying dividends in his performances on the pitch, which have already led to a club record-equalling eight successive league clean sheets.
“It’s something that I took up last year when I wasn’t playing,” said Green. “I asked myself what I can improve on, and can I get stronger and fitter? I’m fitter now than I was 10 years ago, or even two years ago.

“It’s made a huge difference. I walk out in training and it’s easy by comparison. If I know that my afternoon session is 10 times harder than my pitch session, then the quality of my training on the pitch is improved. I love it.
“It does my head in when I see the young lads go home from training and play computer games or sit at home. If you don’t put everything you have into this, then you get that ‘what could have been?’ feeling.
