In recent weeks, clubs have provided players with home training plans due to national lockout regulations.
But clubs have now sent their teams new, less intense workouts to maintain a “basic level of fitness”.
Players will receive new training plans to increase their fitness level starting May 5, the start of a traditional preseason.
A club informs its players that it plans to resume group training by the end of May.
Sportsmail revealed players should expect a resumption of the season in mid-June
Sportsmail revealed last week that players should prepare to return to full training in mid-May before the season resumes in mid-June.
Players are also asked not to leave the country during the current off-season. Even foreign players, who might want to return to their home country during this period, have been strongly advised against leaving the UK.
Those who want to go abroad need special permission from their club, but have been told to make sure they can come back within 48 hours if the plans change.
