    Oh, before and after pictures from where I started a while back. Before pic was ~265 pounds, after pic is current weight. Feel so much better.

    Recruiting

    I'm new to this, so here goes my best:

    I'm currently a junior offensive lineman and am looking to play college football. My stats are as follows: bench 270, squat 335 (estimated), power clean 235, 40 yard dash is around a 5.5 could be less or more, and I'm 6'4" easy and 270. All of those numbers, are obviously in pounds, so please don't think I'm a total stud. I do not have a lot of varsity film, but I did get a few starts and lots of reps, and didn't do that bad.

    My question is, do I stand a chance of getting a d1, d2 or d3 offer? Please understand, I'm not a disillusioned gear head who thinks he'll get an offer from msu, but I still think d2 is a possibility. Please let me know what you think, and if I need to work at anything in particular to make a difference, let me know aswell.

    Also, if I was too wordy or asked this in the wrong place, tell me so I don't keep screwing up.

    There's a lot of material out there for recruiting that you need to familiarize with. The NCSA (a paid recruiting service) has some free stuff info that's pretty good. Since you're a Junior you need to do the following

    1) Register with the NCAA. This costs you $70 and you will send ACT/SAT scores and transcript to the eligibility center. All D1 and D2 programs use this.
    2) Make a film reel - easiest is HUDL (if that's what your school uses to capture game footage), but any will do. If not HUDL then make sure you have it somewhere accessable
    3) A web presence with your recruiting information. You can spend thousands on this (NCSA) or not much (CaptainU) but it's a place you can put your stats, link to film, and as a basis for reaching coaches.
    4) Go to camps - this is what you will do all of June and part of July this year. Earliest camps start in a week or so - plan on attending some. Since you're a lineman go to BigMan camps. Remember that a D1 sponsored camp will also have D2 and D3 coaches attending, especially BigMan camps.
    5) Train a get prepared for combine measurements - 40yrd dash, long jump, vertical jump, 225lb bench for reps, pro agility shuttle
    6) Fill in recruiting information forms at the schools you would like to go to school
    7) Study, get great grades and retake your ACT/SAT tests to get the best scores possible

    At 6'4" you have height that will qualify you as a D1 lineman. You are a bit weak in your lower body (squat should be over 475lbs by now)

    Remember than only D1-FBS offers 85 so called full-ride scholarships, every other level offers less and they are generally partial scholarships (D1-FCS 69, D2 39, D3 none). A D2 scholarship is generally 1K or 2K, a good D1-FCS scholarship is half-ride. Also, at D1 and D2 programs you will be expected to commit to 30-50hrs/week and take 5 years to finish your schooling. Also, at a lot of schools certain majors (like pre-Med or Engineering) will be highly discouraged.

    First things first...you want to divide your training year. Training in the off-season (season is a long ways away) vs. prepping for the upcoming season (season is just around the corner) must be treated differently.

    Next...you want a dynamic and varied workout schedule. You should also keep in mind that in one workout you can combine elements of training...(i.e. Plyos + Olympic Lifts). But keep in mind every week will not (and should not) look exactly the same.

    An example of what one week might look like.
    Start every day off with a dynamic movement & mobility workout (10-20 minutes). This should include something to get the blood flowing (short row/jog/airdyne, maybe an isometric hold - planks, then some dynamic range of motion movements for entire body (wrist circles, arm circles, side stretch, hip circles, scorpian, spiderman lunge, samson stretch, bow and bend, leg swings)

    Day 1:
    Lift/Plyo GPP workout:
    5x OHS @ 75% of your 1RM
    10x box jump @ 32" box (or something challenging for you to get 10 reps)
    15x sit-ups
    Rest 3 minutes
    5 rounds

    Rest 15 minutes (or wait until later in the day) then:

    Skill workout - 30 minutes:
    (I would program specific exercises, but for the sake of space I'll just outline)
    Ball handling
    Form shooting
    Off the catch shooting (15 footers & 3's)

    Day 2
    Warm-up

    5x Heavy squat
    As many pull-ups as possible without coming off the bar
    5 rounds


    Day 3
    Warm-up

    Very hard and intense Skill workout (Ball Handling, Finishing, Shooting, Passing). Should be 45 minutes long, and you should leave it all on the court, don't save anything.


    Day 4
    Rest & Recovery Day


    Day 5
    12x Clean (full squat clean)
    12x plyometric push-up
    Rest 3 minutes
    9x Clean
    9x plyo push-up
    Rest 3 minutes
    6x Clean
    6x plyo push-up


    Rest 15 minutes (or wait until later in the day) then:

    Dedicated Shooting and Ball Handling workout (30 minutes)


    Day 6
    Rest & Recovery Day


    Day 7
    10x down and back sprints as fast as possible (or you can do 40 yard dashes)
    rest 30 seconds after each

    Dedicated shooting workout (30 minutes)


    Day 8
    5 sets of 5 Heavy Deadlifts

    .....
    check out my site or shoot me an e-mail and we can discuss in more detail
    Do you have any programs for football? Thanks

    Something to note here, out of the two pre-seaosn games i've played now the Ref's in the midland England arn't playing all the ELV's. He said he don't agree! So that was a strange game.

    Also went to see the Northampton Saints play on Sunday 66-0 they beat Trevisco (Italian club). One thing to note, Northamptons smaller fitter pack ran rings round the Italians BUT the game looked a lot like Rugby League with all the little chins and runs etc.


    So any thoughts on the Guiniess Premership this year? I think Sale has a really good team!
    Thanks for your advice! Awesome .................

    Wondering if I could get a little bit of insight on my stats and tips on what I should be doing to improve (gain weight, lose weight, programs, etc...). Keep in mind I'm in Canada, so the competition to get into a good school for Football is a lot lower. I have 2 seasons of Football left until I'm done of high school looking to get into University and figured now is probably the best time to start preparing to play at that level and taking this seriously.

    16 years old, 5'8ish 175lbs (probably around like 18% I'd say might be wrong and I might gain an inch or two but not much more) Running back. Bench 175, Squat 315 and Deadlift 405. I've been doing a Push/Pull/Legs split for a little while that I threw together myself and I've seen strength gains, but I feel like my progress would be a lot better if I followed a program made by someone a bit more knowledgeable than myself. Any tips at all are greatly appreciated.
