Lets start this off im 5'11" around 315-325 wear between a 38-42 pant sit around 30% bf and am 20 years old. I was a starting guard on my football team and our season ended this past week and im not in nearly good enough shape and need to change this for next season . I've read some of the stickys but need some more guidance on do's and donts as I've never been serious about nutrition. I'm looking to be around 280 lbs and drop my body fat but put on a solid amount of muscle. I'm going to be lifting 5X a week, doing footwork/agility, and cardio. Would like to get almost like a strongman body or like a pro lineman so not a huge gut. All help is appreciated guys.

Once you have done that select a proven beginner routine, these are made to give the best results, some good routines would be- Starting Strength, BabyLover's Starting Strength, AllPro's Beginner Routine, StrongLifts 5x5, IceCream Fitness 5x5, Fierce 5, or Coolcicada's Push/Pull/Legs.

Read into those and pick the one you like best.
