After a busy past season that ended for Zurab with a pulling at the Zloty Tur-2016, he took a short break for rest to recover from injuries:
"After the Zloty Tour, I rested for about a month, but, unfortunately, I could not get rid of my injuries completely. But this fact does not prevent me in the preparation for the European Championships-2017".
Despite the incomplete recovery, Zurab began his preparations for the new season and the first serious start - the European Championships in Poland:
"Preparation for the European Championship-2017 I started in the second half of December. I didn’t make big corrections in the training plan, only corrected some mistakes that I had made earlier. Preparation was going according to plan, there were no unforeseen circumstances. I think that this year I will show the form better than in the past".
Zurab is quite an active user of social networks. And from his activity it is noticeable that during the preparation he significantly added the mass.
