Alright well I'm finally starting a journal. This is my second year playing football in my life (didn't start first year though) and I'm playing at Left Guard on JV and no defensive position (politics of football, yay). Was still unsure of stuff and didn't starting preparing myself late. I didn't get very strong before I started playing but I guess I'll have to work on the minimal gains that I made. I have noticed that I do have that game speed and strength though and pretty good technique even though I'm undersized. I'm looking to start next year on Varsity as either a Tight End (if we have one) and attempt OLB since I've always wanted to play there. Depending on my gains by August I might have to tryout for something else.
We just incorporated a Tight End halfway through this season and this other kid is starting there. During practices though, I'm in the head coach's eyes at Tight End since he set me as the designated one when doing scouting teams. Hopefully next year they'll have one. If not I'll have to go out for the Oline possibly and maybe Dline or another defensive position.
I'll be following the WS4SB3 template. It's a possibility I'll be doing rec league basketball but I won't let that affect my workouts. Just would be doing it for fun (1 practice a week about and 1 game). I'll be tossing in some sprints and possibly position work if I can think of anything.
Weight: 187lbs (don't know BF%)
Bench: 185lbs is the most I've attempted (hah)
Squat: Unsure, just started doing Box Squats and getting the right distance
Power Clean: 155x5 for 3 sets easily.
Vertical Jump: 20inch BSing it in gym for the "P90X test"
40yd: Unsure, I think I was close to a 5 flat though?
Pro Agility: 4.79 on a slippery track that you fell on =P. Decent, will work on it later on for better technique (that was first time)
Height: Don't matter really
Weight: 210-215lbs @ 14% BF max (need to gain speed, don't need fat slowing me down)
I'll need help setting reasonable goals on my lifts. I will have from Thursday (1/5/09) until June until I'll have to start going to summer conditioning.
Bench: 225lbs at the LOWEST
Squat: 300lbs at the LOWEST
Vertical: Possibly 25? Can't really set goal.
40yd: I want to hit the high 4's at the lowest. Need to break that. Hopefully with good technique and great gains that will happen.
I'll be looking for motivation on a good clean diet. I want to gain that weight in as much as possible by the time I'll be done so I'll be eating clean foods. No sodas, chips, cake or any of that junk anymore. I'll have to start packing my lunch at school also since the cafeteria food blows.
Calories: Around 4000 on workout days and 3600 on non workout days at the beginning, will update when I see how my body is changing
Animal Pak (will switch to Orange Triad possibly, suggested by dgcoats)
Maybe M-Stack? Doubt it, might want a creatine but want my diet in check first.
I'll need a lot of helps guys. Most of you don't know me personally but I'll show you that I have heart and I work my hardest at everything I do. I don't believe that being lazy gets you anywhere in life. This is a stretch enough for me and slacking off is NOT AN OPTION.
Let's Do Work.
