West Ham striker Andy Carroll releases inspirational training video

Even Rocky and Apollo Creed would be proud of this...

With only 16 days until the Premier League season starts, West Ham United striker Andy Carroll has decided to step up his game in an effort to be ready for business. 

Big Andy has had some serious problems with his injuries over the past few years, so has now released some 'amazing' training montages to show everyone how super fit he is. 

In the first video, which he titled 'POWER', the human trebuchet is seen running on a weird dog leash, kicking a few balls and running around some more. 

The second one sees the Geordie striker doing some heading (classic) and then kicking some more balls – it's truly inspirational stuff, Rocky-esque in fact. If only he screamed 'Drago!'.  

With Carroll still the most expensive Liverpool striker after Christian Benteke signed for just a mere £32.5million this week, as reported by the BBC, the England international is looking to get fit and continue showing why he was worth £35million... 

You go Andy!
