The Blues were put through their paces in front of the Carlton faithful in an open training session at Ikon Park on Monday morning.

The skills session also marked star midfielder Patrick Cripps' return to the track, with the 21-year-old on track to play in Round 1 as he continues his comeback from a back stress reaction.

Carlton is less than two weeks away from its first JLT Community Series match, which will take place at Casey Fields on Saturday 25 February against Melbourne.

Check out a selection of snaps from the track today:
