Goals and Sprint Day

First, thanks for the encouragement so far!

I have a couple of goals as far as training goes and where I want it to take me. I love this type of training and haven't been able to do it since the injury, so my first goal is/was to simply get back into amazing football shape. Simply, I want to be able to run, squat, and powerclean without worrying about having a relapse.

My second goal is to see how far I can get into playing again. There are tons of options for this ranging from semi-pro ball to the NFL. In between those, there is AFL, AFL2, UFL, and the CFL. Numbers wise, I would actually be a top performer at the NFL combine this year, but I haven't played in years AND would be switching positions. In the words of one agent, "If you are a freak of nature and you're lucky, you MIGHT get picked up for a practice squad."

I am actually attending a secondary combine (which may or may not be a scam? at the end of this month. I have 4 weeks left including this week, and my numbers are as follows:

Position: S
Weight: 220
Height: 6'2"
20 Yd Shuttle: 4.19
3 Cone Drill: 6.98
40 Yd Dash: 4.56
Vertical: 32"
225 Bench: 23

It ALL needs work, but these were all first attempts, so we will see what happens. Most importantly I am having quite a bit of fun training!

Thanks again guys, and I will update again soon with more!

  2. im working rigth now on losing weigth since im 5 kilos over my ideal weigth.

    i need some good fat burning excersise any ideas?

  3. Not half bad for first attempts. Looking forward to seeing your improvement.

  4. shultzz, there are a lot of different things you can include to burn more fat. Start with cardio or intervals, and if you need something else, you can do circuit training with weights. Always include regular weight training as well to maintain muscle mass and stay strong!
