Lucas Leiva is certainly taking his personal training seriously ahead of the midfielder’s return to Liverpool.

The Brazil international has regularly posted clips of his training sessions over the past month or so despite being on a summer break following a gruelling season.

Lucas started his bid to be fully fit for pre-season with runs around his farm before he ventured into the gym with his own coach to carry out a series of exercises.

And on the eve of his return to Liverpool, Lucas uploaded a video of a speed session which involved the use of a parachute to provide resistance.

Lucas wrote on his Instagram page: “Last session in Brazil. Tomorrow get back to Liverpool .”

The Liverpool midfielder is facing a battle to secure a place in Brendan Rodgers’s starting line-up next season following the signing of James Milner.

He experienced an injury-hit season due to a groin problem before the South American made a successful return in the second half of the season.
