Good evening all - I decided that I would chronicle or blog my attempt at a Semi-Pro Football and Unattached Track & Field comeback. I am 33 years old so I’m getting to the point where I need to capitalize on my speed-power ability as this is the age that it starts to plateau. It has been 9 years since I last played Football and competitively ran track. However I never stopped training in the weight room. I’ve tried to make a couple of comebacks for Speed training over the past few years but I have been nagged with injuries — I’m hoping to change that this year. Despite a lack of Speed training in a long while and sporadic attempts at getting back into it, my quickness and stride rate are still really good and I believe I can still be a productive speed-power athlete. Especially in Semi-Pro Football where many of the players are older than me. I hope this journey inspires you to go after your dreams. I am making a few changes— I likely will be making a transition to running back vs. wide receiver. I will be doing more of a spectrum titled towards hypertrophy (muscle size), power development, shorter sprint distances in training, more resisted sprints with heavier loads. I also am up in the air on making 1 of 3 high-nervous system demand quality days more of a fun day— they call them “X-Factor days” in the Track & Field World where I try out different forms of training I’ve never done before. I also may participate in some marital arts training (not MMA but Karate/Taekwando) on this day. I have not yet decided. I am formerly a 400m/200m specialist. I plan on switching to a 60m/100m specialist with perhaps a 200m race pending on how well I can carry my speed endurance.
