Michael Vick completed his 23-month federal sentence Monday, but having been confined to his home for the last two months, the indefinitely suspended quarterback spent the last three weekends in his backyard training with speed and conditioning coach Tom Shaw, The St. Petersburg Times reports.

Shaw, who has worked with QBs Tom Brady, Peyton Manning and Jay Cutler in the past, said he’s putting Vick through a training program designed to sharpen his skills as a quarterback, according to The Times:

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.
