Hi there everyone,
I’m a 20 year old college football player in my second year. I play offensive line stand at 6’1", weighing 315-320 depending on the day. I am 23.15% body fat. As an Athlete I Strength train 3-4 days a week and do cardio 2-3 times a week.
My workouts very depending on what phase of the year we are in and the area my S&C coach feels I need the most work in based on test outs i.e. ( speed, strength, power). for example I just started a 4 week reactive set program to focus on speed.
Prior to the start of this reactive cycle I just finished 4 weeks of concentric work and 4 weeks of ISO work. I’m telling you this just to give you an idea of how my training changes over the course of the year, and that I don’t dictate my training.
Like I said I am 6’1" 320LBS and 23.15% body fat. I would consider my self and Endomorph body type. my measurements are as follows-
Upper Arm 18"
Now it’s not my muscularity or the mass I’m able to put on that is the problem I put on muscle fairly quick and easily when im in the right phases of training. What I would really like to do is get my body fat down to the 16-18% range while maintaining my size.
Now I know that the key to this goal is proper diet and clean eating. I have read numerous posts and articles on that very subject, but my question is (and one that has yet to be answered) is how to do it while in school with factors such as limited budget, space for cooking and being on a campus meal plan… which for those who don’t know is basiclly fast food at every meal. I guess it’s just the nature of the beast.
Im hoping to find some guys or gals who have had expereince in similar dilemas and can pffer some advise on clean eating on a college campus while being constricted by limited monetary reasources.
