"I've already started training," said Alexander Ovechkin to Sovietsky Sport Dmitry Ponomarenko. "Getting ready for the season."
Isn't it too early?
This summer I've intentionally started earlier. Last year I started training on August 1st, this year on July 20.
Last season was so-so... It seemed that I also was training well, but ... It was evident that something went not right. So I learn from my mistakes and decided to do more. In order not to repeat the bad season, it is necessary to change something. So I began restructuring from the very first stage of training.
