Hey Guys,

I'm after some training advice or even programs to help me get ready play footy. I'm 27, big footy fan and recently had a itch to get out there and give it a crack. I've never had the ability to play club sports in my adult life due to working nights and weekends but that has since changed.

It's April/May now, it seems a bit late to join a club now so I'd like to get myself ready for the beginning of pre-season later in the year.

I'm 183cm and weigh 85kg, I'm naturally a skinny guy but carrying a bit of body fat at the moment, I would like to bring down my weight while improving my strength and my cardio conditioning both relating to football.

I know there is alot of information in these forums which I'll look through but anyone who has had experience in a similar situation or generally some advice specific to me getting my body ready that would be appreciated, cheers.

Hey mate, current PT/Online Coach with a Bachelors in Exercise Science, happy to give you some advice.

What sort of history do you have with weight training? Pretty limited?
