Default Preparation for Sports

I am doing Simplefit at the moment. I want to prepare my body for the rigors of basketball,ultimate frisbee, volleyball and soccer. Therefore I want to begin running sprints, basic plyometrics and running up hills and stadium steps. At what level would you advise me to start doing these activities and for how long until I start engaging in these sports. I am 41 years old if that helps you in making a decision.

what's the specific reason that you cannot engage in them already? do you have a specific medical issue?

I fell that my flexibility in my hamstrings needs to be improved. And in order to be competitive I need time to improve my aerobic conditioning, anaerobic endurance, strength, power, agility and quickness.

When I added conditioning into my routine I just did it as fast as I could and tried to do better next time. It depends on how hard it is on your joints I guess. A good run through of Starting Strength will help build joint integrity.

Kevin thanks foor your advice. I believe I'll begin Starting Strength. However, I think I'll modify the program slightly by doing weighted dips instead of BP and FS instead of BS.

Weighted dips is OK.

If you want to work more on posterior chain (hammy flexibility, glute/ham power) for the sports you want to play you should keep the back squats.

For INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY. Also, a bit tongue in cheek.

Really?

Testosterone Enanthate
Testosterone Cypionate
Testosterone Proprionate
Testosterone Suspension
Testosterone Blends.

Exogenous testosterone is best drawn up in a 22 to 23 gage needle. My recommendations to a neophyte is 1-2 ccs at most, then injected into the outer part of the quad, in the middle third area, at least twice a week. There's some talk that a bolus of testosterone is best absorbed through the gluteus, but it's problematic to reach around there when you are not experienced.

I would not start with suspension or proprionate, those tend to sting, suspension significantly so, until you are more experienced and have acquired the taste for the sting (which should happen unless you are some sort of candyass) and then in that case, every other day injections can keep the levels both high and consistent.

Expect a few things:

Awesomeness.
Feeling way cooler than Matt Foreman.
Getting big and strong pretty fast
Horniness you haven't felt since you were 15 and grabbed your first titty.
Wanting to take up MMA or maybe Rugby League instead of Ultimate and Soccer.
