Hi, I am currently going into my first year of high school and training for football. I’m a lineman (tackle and guard).
Before I get started here are my stats:
(lifts are from 7 weeks ago… body weight is current)
14 years old
I am currently doing a basic 5x5 routine that has me lifting 4 days a week, getting me used to loading/deloading and periodization. Basically all I do is squat, squat, squat, deadlift deadlift, squat and coupled with some power cleans , military presses, cg bench, and accessory work.
My question is what should my diet look like? Should I worry a lot about what I eat? I’m looking to mainly get stronger/faster/bigger/more explosive and I don’t care much about looks.
Also, once football practice starts, how should I maniuplate my GPP work… (i have a sled) should I even keep dragging? or just lessen the volume… any other suggestions would be really appreciated thanks.
