A New Challenge: Football


#1

Hi there everybody!

While I was at the gym, a fellow employee and I started talking about football. He mentions that he is 35 years old and still plays full contact football in a senior league in Quebec. He asked me if I was interested in trying out for the team. I am very interested however I do have a few setbacks.

  1. I haven?t played in over 10 years
  2. I am overweight
  3. I am out of shape.

I am very fascinated and extremely excited about this opportunity, however, I am also concerned about my lack of physical fitness. I need to get back in game shape. Strength, speed, quickness and agility need to be rapidly improved.

What training program and diet would u suggest?

27 years old
5 9 Height
217 lbs
Body fat approx. 30-31% (electronic scale)

I have been doing the School Dawg workout the past couple of weeks (3 days weights 3 days cardio)

Any suggestions/ideas/comments would be appreciated.
