I joined my high school track team and I’m going to be throwing. I would like to develop a lifting program in accordance with the fact that I have limited time due to having practice on weekdays, and to help with the throwing movements.
Age - 16
Training age - 8 months
Weight - 150 lbs. (up from 115ish before I started lifting)
Deadlift - 215 X 7
Front Squat - 145 X 4
Bench Press - probably around 140 for a max
Track practice goes til 4:30 everyday and I don’t get home til around 5. I’m not sure whether to eat something, wait a little while and then lift, or what (I would prefer to train often and short rather than less frequent and long).
I will begin bringing some grape juice to sip on during practice to prevent catabolism (should I also put some l-glutamine in?). I’m looking for strength but also to break this plateau of 150 lbs. (been at that weight for over a month). I’m not sure what throw I’m going to be concentrating on.
Help would be appreciated, and if you need to know more info, just ask.
