    The newly created Nike Football Society, a 8 team, invite only flag football league made up of various industry heads in NYC (XXL Mag, Roc Nation and Madbury Club to name a few), had a SPARQ Training day to test all of the players. Now, I think I'm pretty athletic, not professionally capable, but I can hold my own but damn this was one hell of a test. We started off with some warm-ups exercises (lunges, high knees, karaoke, etc) as a group just to get loose. Then the broke us up by team and sent us to our drill station. Up first we had the power ball, basically throw a 6 pound medicine ball from your knees as far as you can. Next up was the vertical test, jumping straight up as high as you can from a stand still. Then the 40-yard dash and finally an agility test.

    Now it might not sound like much but you have to do them 3 times each back-to-back and as strong, high or fast as you can. Needless to say by the end we were all dead. Oh but then they threw in another 15-minute Nike+ workout. Sounds like I might be complaining but I loved it, wish I would do workouts like this all the time, definitely got everyone hype to get this season started and out onto the turf.

    Nigel Sylvester and I are co-captains for our team, I'll introduce you to the rest of the squad soon. We start September 9th on the first day of the NFL season. We'll make sure to keep you posted throughout the season, should be a good one!
