Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has given an insight into training under Jurgen Klopp.
The midfielder has spoken about the differences in training now, what occurs in pre-season and the performance changes to sessions before matches.
The Reds currently sit two points clear at the top of the Premier League table after winning six league games in a row.

They also have a huge Champions League win against Paris Saint-Germain under their belt and are looking to make it eight games from eight tonight against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup in the midst of seven games in 23 days.
Clearly this is a busy period for the Liverpool players with so many games and travel to take into account so preparation and training is key to success.
"Training incorporates all aspects nowadays and not just cardio," Henderson said.
"We do our fair share in the gym when it comes to weight training, but weight training is usually in the pre-season building up our strength then we move towards more plyometrics and body weight training when the season is underway.
"The plyometrics and body weight helps with our agility and core strength, both of which are important when it comes to football."
Klopp has made a number of adjustments to his Liverpool operation since joining in October 2015 - the implementation of new nutritionists, a rehabilitation and performance manager, a restructure in the sports science department and a new head of fitness and conditioning.
These new appointments joining the already well-established trainers and coaches at Melwood.
It is all designed to ensure Liverpool's players are in the absolute peak condition at vital periods of the season.

And England international Henderson added: "The coaches usually give us a good blend of training; setting out the drills and giving us all our programmes to follow when we are in the gym to help tailor what we are doing to our positions.
"On a daily basis we usually do two sessions a day. That first session focusing on our fitness and strength, then we get into more the training and tactics."
Henderson was speaking as a Maximuscle ambassador and revealed that he uses protein supplements from the brand post-training and mixes it into his smoothies and porridge to help fuel and recover from training before, during and after.
