Along with focusing on his personal needs and things that can improve his game, Kruel tries to work on the things that are ignored in club training.

Kruel trains Costa about 4 to 5 times a week. However, when the game schedule is too tightly packed, Costa trains for 2 to 3 days a week. Most of the exercises are bodyweight oriented and overall tempo of the workout is slow.
