Anthony's Training Log

Hey guys. I want to start a log to get advice and be critiqued based on my current routine, so that I can make the proper changes to help me perform better.

Alright, so i’m a 17 year old who used to play football , participate on the powerlifting team, and ran track in high school, but I want to continue to stay strong and conditioned because i’d like to continue to be active. I’d like to gain strength with minimal fat basically. I am currently 5’9 and 175 lbs. My PR are…

Squat : 375 below parallel
Deadlift : 405
Benchpress : 225
Powerclean : 225
VJ : 32"
40 : 4.8
Not too bad, but i’d like some help.
Okay, so on with the log

Breakfast 8 am: 3 eggs scrambled eaten with 3 slices of whole wheat bread and a glass of milk
Pre-Workout 10 am: A packed turkey sandwich on whole wheat bread with tomatoes and mayo with a glass of water and an apple on the way to the gym.
Post-Workout 11:15 am: A shake with 20g whey, a glass of milk, ice, and a banana.
Lunch 12:30 : 5 buffalo wings and a glass of water

Snacked on homemade beef jerkey until bed.

Between 6 and 7 pm I did play some basketball, and it was pretty hot. I also did sessions of jump rope and keg tosses between play. I was completely against the dairy queen, but it was that or nothing, and I was installing cabinets all day in houses that have no A/C at 95 degree temperature. Does that count as some form of cardio?
