I know this type of question has been asked before but it was hard to find something that seemed to pertain to what im trying to do since the search button is broken.
I’m 16 and looking to start getting serious about my performance in sports and my overall physique. I’ve realized, seeing some of my friends graduate, that the time i have in hihg school for sports is limited and i need to do everything i can to be the best. It also doesn’t hurt that the girls like a guy who’s got some nice muscles. I’m reasonably well built alot more muscular than the average person, but i really want to take it to the next level.
Over the next 4 months my goal is to gain around 10 lbs of muscle and lose fat for football. Now my body fat is around 12%. I would like to get to around 7%. im 6ft and around 170 pounds. i lift for our school gym class first thing in the morning for around 40 minutes 3 times a week with core work on the days in between. i have wrestling workouts 4 nights a week. if necessary i could go to the gym and lift more after school.
I try to eat healthy when i can but there are just so many resources its hard to decide on a good diet plan for myself. i know that what you put in your body has a huge role in muscle development. I tfried researching diets, but for the most part it seems as if the diets are either for guys looking to do alot of bulking, guys training for bodybuilding, or overweight people looking to lose alot of fat. i’m not really looking to do any of those. i’m more of a combination of all three.
Also any supplements i should think about? As of now i take a whey protein shake directly after lifting in the mornings
