Ghanaian giants Accra Hearts of Oak have installed modern movable swimming pool at the club’s training grounds at Pobiman to improve training and player readiness.
The 2000 CAF Champions League and Super Cup winner installed the facility on Friday as Kim Grant seeks to improve the readiness of his charges for games.
Grant, a former Ghana international, introduced ice bath after training before the team went on the Christmas and New Year holidays.
The latest fixture at the club’s training grounds will afford the team the opportunity to practice both warm and ice water baths after training to improve the conditioning of players.
An advantage of ice bath submersion is that a large area of intertwined musculature can be treated, rather than limiting the cold therapy to a concentrated area with a localized ice pack.
Hearts have been preparing feverishly for the upcoming GFA Normalisation Committee Special Competition as they returned to training three days ago.
