Help, My Tires Are Flat


I'm 38 and started powerlifting for about a year now. I slowly stopped playing softball, which was about the only thing keeping my legs running. The lifting is going great but I kept acquiring small leg injuries running the bases.

Now I've quit playing to concentrate on my lifting, but now I can't hardly run around at all. The treadmill, sled work and roadwork is fine, at a slow pace and straight ahead. Can anyone recommend a speed program to get some lateral quickness back.


I think Westside has some speed and adjility training components.


DeFranco's Westside for Skinny Bastards, Part II is still ont the home page and has some speed work.

Also search the archives for sprinting, running, Charlie Francis, etc.
