High school football season is coming up, so questions are going through my mind. I'm going to be playing offensive and defensive line, and im wondering if I can still increase my strength during the season. 4 days of practice a week, 1 game day, school during the day, weekends off.
All I have been doing for 9 months now is weightlifting, so practices will be new for my body. Any weightlifing sessions will have to be done in the morning before school or on the weekend days (They could be done after practice, but that would mean literally my entire day is full, no free time).
My question is how should I be lifting during the season (sets/reps and how many times a week)? Are there any programs out there designed for someone in this position? I'm not really comfortable trying to design my own program. Is it realistic to hope for decent strength increases during the season, provided that I eat enough?
