Vick Has Been Training With Tom Shaw

St. Petersburg Times - [Full Article]

Vick hired speed and conditioning coach Tom Shaw, who has spent the past three weekends training the former Falcons star in the backyard of Vick's suburban Virginia home.

Vick has kept a low profile since his release from federal prison, where he served 18 months of his sentence. He doesn't want his comeback attempt to make him a more polarizing figure, the way news reports have hurt Brett Favre.

Shaw said Vick is in good shape and naturally fast enough to run a 4.4 40-yard dash at this time. But Shaw has been working with Vick on 'explosive movement.' While Vick has spent about 1 hour per day on a treadmill during home confinement, most of his training has been distance running for conditioning purposes.
