  2. What do you mean by 40 yd. sprints 2 sets of 4 reps ? It's confusing me. Also, is this for getting you in football shape or improving your speed, or both ?

  3. improving my speed..

    a set is separated by 10 minutes.. each rep is separated by 5 minutes or so... it is from a sprinting book i bought.

  4. This looks interesting to me, but what does each set include ? ( i.e. sprint followed by some footwork drills etc. ) The frequency looks fine so you shouldn't lose much weight. May wanna use some BCAA's if recovery starts lacking.

  5. yeah there are a lot of bcaa's in the protein i use and i take 5-6 scoops a day (22g protein/scoop) of that so hopefully it will help.. and yeah its not constant running so i shouldnt lose much.. its mainly strength building.
