I am currently 6'1, 160 pounds and 14 years old. I want to get bigger stronger and faster for bball season next year. So I decided that i am going to start lifting and working out on my own. The thing is, i am still recovering from a ACL surgrey so all i can pretty much do is lift weights. I better make the best of my time and try to get bigger. Here is my new and inproved diet and a pic of me.( the pic sucks, its the only one i could get)

Meal 1:9:00 a.m 8 egg whites , 1 cup oats, 1 tablesspoon natty PB

meal 2:12:00 P.m yam, milk, whey


meal 3: 2:00 p.m whey in water

meal 4 3:00 p.m chicken breast, veggies, yam

meal 5 6:00 p.m White fish, veggies, brown rice

meal 6 9:00 p.m Cottage cheese, veggies

How does this look? Suggestions would be nice?

take the whey in water 30 minutes before you workout

Didn't you read the part about the ACL. I doubt he could do a lot of things that might twist the leg in any possible way.....like core exercises. That **** makes my old leg injury hurt and that was from 2 years ago.

Add some carbs post wo, otherwise your diet looks solid.

And there are some static and non-twisting core exercises that can be done.

Well depending on your acl kind i would do the basics.. I know its not the norm, as your thinking of doing BB (bodybuilding workouts)... If you can tolerate the Polymetrics then do em, as far as cardio sprits, HIIT high intensity cardio for basketball is a sport of instant movement and speed.

I would do 5 days a week

day 1- Legs

day 2- upper body

day 3-abs

day 4-legs

day 5- upper body

Upper body consisting of:
Bench Press,
Military Press
bar bell rows
Prone Hyper-extensions (like a reverse back sit-up for lower back)
skullcrushers .. should give you a base for you are just starting out

Lower Body- Most essential to get faster and stronger for BBALL
Power Cleans
Ham/Quad Curls

Hanging knee rasies
sit-ups maybe 6 sets of 50 or 100

.. just a rough copy but this should work for you.. Your in high school i take it wanting to train for bball?....with that diet and hard work you could achieve what you want
