Norwich City's players are responding well to a testing pre-season schedule, according to new Head of Sports Science Chris Domogalla.
The Canaries' squad have taken on a heavy workload under the watch of their new managerial team, with intense training regimes forming a central part of preparation for the 2017-18 campaign.
Speaking to Norwich City TV, Domogalla said: "The first sessions and the first weeks have been good.
"I've heard that the guys are not used to double sessions but they've done a really good job. We've increased the load softly in each session because we knew the background.
"We've pushed the guys to improve them. That's the way we want them to work."
Domogalla is a key component of City's new-look coaching structure, the quartet of himself, Daniel Farke, Edmund Riemer and Christian Flüthmann having operated together while with Borussia Dortmund II.
"It's important when you come in as a team to work really closely and know each other," the fitness chief explained.
"From my point of view I have the overview of the data on the players which my colleagues will deliver. We discuss the schedule for the week and how to implement the sessions.
"The main topic of my work is firstly to reduce the players' injury potential. That will give us a big squad for the training sessions.
"Then we can improve performance. In improving every player, we can improve the whole squad.
"When we can improve the whole squad from an individual base, hopefully we will be successful."
