  • Aston Villa defender John Terry posts video montage of his workout at the gym
  • The defender is expected to be out for the rest of the year with a broken toe
  • Terry completed bench presses, chin ups and swam laps in the pool on Monday

John Terry admits he hates being injured, but the veteran Aston Villa defender looks to be taking a proactive outlook on his recovery by hitting the gym for a big Monday session.

The 36-year-old is expected to be out for the rest of the year after suffering a fracture to his fifth metatarsal during Aston Villa's 2-1 defeat to Sheffield Wednesday earlier this month.

But following a brief break in?Dubai, Terry was back at work as he completed the latest stint in his rehabilitation, and shared an inspiring gym montage that wouldn't look out of place in a Rocky film.

While still wearing his protective boot, Terry completed a series of bench presses and chin-ups before partaking in some leg strengthening exercises on the floor.

His caption read: 'I hate being injured and can’t wait to be back.'

That would have been more than enough for your average gym bunny, but Terry is anything but. Not quite burnt out, the former Chelsea and England captain strapped on his snorkel and tightened his trunks before hitting the pool for some laps.

The video would have served as good viewing for Aston Villa fans, who will no doubt be looking forward to the return of Terry as their Premier League promotion push clings on under manager Steve Bruce.

Following a 2-1 win over QPR at the weekend, the Villans moved up to fifth in the table but they have a lot of ground to make up on Wolves and Sheffield United, who occupy first and second place and sit nine and seven points ahead respectively.

Terry was present for the game as his team-mates sealed a win and he posted a cheeky message on his Instagram afterwards, saying: 'Walking away from Loftus Road with three points like always.'
