All set for the new season! First batch of FCB players complete performance tests
Stamina, reaction speed and jumping power were needed on Sunday as the first group of FC Bayern first-team players completed the obligatory performance diagnostics at the start of pre-season. Following the medical checks on Saturday, the likes of Sven Ulreich and Dayot Upamecano had to run, sprint, jump and withstand the strain at Säbener Straße. Also among the group was new signing Ryan Gravenberch. The 20-year-old midfielder completed one part of the performance tests.

The Bayern players went through different stations, including a lactate test wearing a respirator mask on a treadmill to examine stamina. Exercises on the Speed Court tested the pace and reaction speed of the players, while there were also jumping and balance tests.
