Hello all. I am new here and I have a few questions.
Let me start off by giving my stats and my goals: I am a 19 year old ex-high school athlete. 6'2" at about 187lbs. After my football season I injured my shoulder doing a set of dumbbell presses, and my weightlifting hasn't really been the same since. After high school I fell out of shape, and now I want my body back. The only problem is I have very little discipline left. My aim is to become a model, and possibly get back into shape to play football once more.
I have read around T-Nation a little bit, but have been confused about some things quite often. I would like to gain weight but also become more defined. Many times over the summer I found myself going back into the old habits of spending hours in the weight room and on the track, aimlessly, wondering around, without a set goal, trying to find that right plan, but never getting it.
I was wondering what the right diet/workout plan would be. Even though I used to be an athlete, I consider myself a beginner, in the sense that I completely forgot all of my technique. Also knowing that my shoulder is still hurt (I feel the pain in it a lot when doing simple things such as laying on it at night, even during sex sometimes I feel a slight pain, etc.) I worry about whether or not I over lift on it. Are there any tips to get my strength back in my shoulder without tearing something?
