Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger turned up to the club's second training session of the day, yesterday, on his bicycle.

The Gunners have been working out at Bad Waltersdorf in Austria ahead of the two-day Emirates Cup friendly competition this weekend, an annual competition they have hosted since leaving Highbury.

Whilst there is no friendly match scheduled during the Austrian hub of their pre-season preparations, Wenger - assisted by fitness coach Marcus Svensson, first team coach Neil Banfield, club coach Boro Primorac and assistant manager Steve Bould - have been putting the squad through their paces as they look to sharpen up following the 1-0 loss suffered against New York Red Bulls at the Red Bull Arena in New Jersey last week.

The coaching staff have been joined by Shad Forsyth, generally revered as one of the world's top fitness coaches in football who has a strong CV having worked with the German national team.

The inclusion of Forsyth (pictured below) could be one of the greatest additions to the club as a whole, inclusive of imports to the playing personnel like Alexis Sanchez and the reported deal for Sami Khedira.

Last season, Arsenal were plagued by a number of seemingly preventable injuries. Muscular problems hounded the Gunners roster with established first team players like Aaron Ramsey, Bacary Sagna, Mesut Ozil and Laurent Koscielny all sidelined through hamstring complaints, while others occupied the physio room with calf muscle issues.

With the presence of Forsyth and Svensson assisting Wenger in the fitness department, the team may not be in for as easy a ride as Wenger got on the way to their training headquarters.
