Right now just lifting but football next year. I wanted to gain a ton of strength before I joined the team. I added a rack pull goal just because I like to do them and I go to failure with all exercises so that’s where I get the rep made a.
Don’t train to failure so often. At least try to avoid it for now and you’ll see the difference in progress. (Progress is measured in weeks and months, not days, so be patient.) You should be learning and reinforcing good technique while you are still learning the correct motor patterns.
Pushing yourself to failure and ingraining poor technique early on is going to set you back in the future when you have to relearn the movements. This is the tough part starting off as a beginner without a good strength coach. In the future, maybe in a couple years, you’ll find that it’s okay to have occasional form break down to make gains but not right now. Stick to basic movements - mainly squat, bench, deadlift, military press, rows and pullups - and make an effort to improve your conditioning.
Run, sprint, farmer’s walk, whatever, just get your heart rate up over sustained periods of time. Strength will come if you stick to the above advice and it seems conditioning should be just as important given your height and weight. You won’t be able to utilize all that strength in football if you aren’t conditioned to stay on the field.
You’ll blow past those goals you set if you are patient and consistent with training.
