Manuel Neuer's Insane Training Sessions Outside His House At Lake Tegernsee Are Next Level
Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer has been training outside his stunning hillside home in Lake Tegernsee while in lockdown, and it genuinely looks out of this world.
The Bundesliga will return on May 22 at the earliest after Germany's chancellor Angela Merkel insisted on a two week quarantine for all clubs.
Many top flight sides, including Bayern Munich, have already returned to training for the first time since the campaign was halted by the Coronavirus pandemic.
And in the picturesque rural area of Bavaria, Manuel Neuer has been trying to maintain his fitness levels away from the training ground.
Bayern's official YouTube channel posted footage of the 34-year-old performing numerous drills with goalkeeping coach Toni Tapalović on Wednesday morning.
"What does Manuel Neuer do to stay in shape in the current situation?" says the caption. "Enjoy the best moments of this impressive home training session!"

Neuer's training drills are certainly impressive but when it comes to inovation, Italian side Bologna are number one.
Championship side Norwich City started the trend with their 'spikeball' drill that involves a trampoline and four goalkeepers but the Serie A side, managed by Sinisa Mihajlovc, have outdone them with a series of genius maneuvers.
As you can see in the footage below, the club have designed exercises to engage players and test their reaction times, using objects that can direct the ball in a number of different directions.
The last thing you'd expect to see on a training ground is a trampoline surrounded by four shot-stoppers, but Norwich brought in that unique training drill a few years back.
'Spikeball' takes a huge amount of skill but it looks like a barrel of laughs.
The temptation to buy a pair goalkeeper gloves and try this out in my garden right now is very strong.
