Cristiano Ronaldo Is Spending His Pre-Season Holiday In The Gym

Cristiano Ronaldo is spending his pre-season in the gym instead of relaxing by the pool with a few drinks; an act of dedication that sums up the man himself.

There's no doubt that the 34-year-old forward will be in tip-top condition for the upcoming 2019/20 for Juventus under new boss Maurizio Sarri.

And he posted the following picture from a gym earlier as he prepares for the upcoming campaign. Beast.

Ronaldo has always maintained an incredible work ethic throughout his career and this is just another example of him going above and beyond to remain at the peak of his powers.

In the kindest way possible, the guy is a freak of nature and his medical results at Juve back up that statement.

The striker's physical state was compared to a 20 year old after results in his medical show that he has 7% body fat and an incredible 50% muscle mass, which is significantly better than his fellow professionals of that specific age group.

Not only that but the 33-year-old ran 33.98km at the World Cup, which was faster than anyone at the tournament. He just continues to smash records, despite his age.

Before he joined the Turin side earlier this month, Real Madrid's coaching staff performed a series of tests on Cristiano Ronaldo's body and the results indicate that he had the physical condition of a 23-year old.

It was also reported that the 34-year-old has the fat content of 7%.

If you compare this to other footballers, the average is around 10 or 11%, according to a report from Spanish publication AS.

Ronaldo also has a muscle mass of 50%, and again, if you compare it again to other professionals, the usual figure doesn't exceed 46%.

He will have a new manager to work with next season after Juventus confirmed the appointment of former Chelsea boss Sarri.

Sarri, 60, signed a three-year deal to cut short his stay at Chelsea and replace Massimiliano Allegri at the Serie A champions.
