Hi, this is my first post, I have been reading and looking around and Everyone seems very helpful so here is my problem, maybe some of you can help.
I am 6 foot 7 inches, currently weighting 385lbs (played at 350 lbs), I played Collegiate Football for 5 years as an Offensive lineman (Left Tackle).
During that time about two years ago, I ruptured all the ligaments and tendons, wrapped my radius and ulna around each other, disclocated all the little wrist bones, needless to say I F*ucked it up. I did it during a football Game my senior year, went after a fumble and got my Right arm and wrist jumped on by the opposing team.
I had a 7 hour surgery to build me a new wrist, and went through physical therapy for 1 year. I don’t have very good range of motion and I can’t do some of the lifts I really enjoyed before getting hurt.
Any way I have been feeling sorry for my self for the last 2 years and I need to change. I haven’t worked out in 2 years and I see my body converting muscle into fat.
These were a few of my maxes before the injury.
non-safe Squat = 650
Bench = 460
Hang Clean = 375
Hang Snatch = 315
Ran a 5.1 Forty
Now as an olinemen I was never taught how to eat, meaning a diet There never was a need. However now that I know I will not be able to play any more I want to cut about 100 lbs. and get back into weights. But my main goal is to lose 100 lbs. you guys and gals got any suggestions. I really don’t want to be BIG anymore, I have never had to lose weight so this will be a very biggggg Change for me and I need all the help I can get!!!
Thanks in advance
