I can do all things through christ who STRENGTHENS me.
In one more week football season will come to an end. I have a goal of gaining 35 pounds by the end of may. I realize this is a large task but I know I am capable. I hope to be kept accountable by everyone here and also to be critiqued as hard as possible on everything I am doing. My goals are to gain that weight while becomming more explosive off the line and faster overall. I am 5'10 165 right now. I will post nutrition and split as soon as I can get them right. Thank you for your input.
Haha, Yeah I like to set high standards for myself. And I had problems with one of the coaches so I kind of have a motivation to show him how good I can be. Just got off of being sick and lost even more weight. Still motivated to get back and getting the feeling of being back in the gym just lit a little fire. I will stop rambling, just had to get all that out.
I worked out light legs today and core, I was wondering if it would be a good Idea to soak in the ice bath after working out. If anyone could tell me that would be appreciated. Thanks
Not sure about the ice bath, sounds cold. Although I have read one strength coach who recommended talking a cool shower/ or walking outside to relax the CNS and begin recovery. I do it, but there is no way of telling how much it helps (it's easy and free so...)
Also, are you a lineman? Offensive or defensive? It would seem to me that on O the extra weight even with some fat would be helpful. On D though, I don't think I would want much extra blubber since moving the extra weight will potentially slow you down. I am not saying you need to be ripped, but there are some basic physics involved. JMO.
Best of luck,
I am tightend and defensive end(small school) so I would be looking for more explosiveness but I want size as well because all the schools we play are monster black people
lol, good luck to you and your goals. I understand what it is to be the undersized team in the game, but we always took advantage of it with our speed and talent. The best advice i can give you is to do as many sprints as you can before now and when next season begins, and you will be even better than before. And you can even end your non-leg days with sprints and miami's!
True story from a guy who played at a small high school for a little while. When, I was a sophomore we had a nose guard who was only 5'7 and 185, but he was also a top competitor in the 100 meter. What I am saying is he was lean, strong and fast, but outweighed by 40lbs minimum. Yet, he used what he had and would shoot gaps like no ones business. He was an incredible pass rusher and led the team in sacks...as a nose tackle!
Not, trying to pop a bubble or anything like that, just take how God made you and improve on that. However 35lbs of muscle would make you a deadly threat.
