Great day. Back later with diet.

Looks like you’ve got your head in the right place. How long is an offseason for lax?


Offseason is about 7-9 months. There is a transition phase where there are optional speed/skills workouts.

I appreciate the kind words man! I just came to the conclusion that i need to stop over thinking things. Just hopped on a proven program, am lifting hard, eating alot, and conditioning and things have been going well.

No legs this weekend. Have to study for exams. Diet will be similar throughout the weekend so im not going to post it. Will do legs monday and go from there. Also looking into making a home gym. found a BIGGER FASTER STRONGER rack on craiglist for 100. Also found about 300 pounds worth of weights. Looking to buy a plate loaded dumbell handle so i can use any weight i want.

Looks like i wont be lifting till wedensday at the earliest because of exams. Any idea how my diet should?

still in exams. Have 2 more days of them then i am back. Starting off exactly were i left off with ME lower. Still eating fairly good. Summer is around the corner just got to get through these damn exams.

Almost done with exams. Going into the gym tomorrow and picking up where i left off. Considering my lifts are so low i was thinking of running Starting Strength for a while to see where it gets me. Any ideas on this? Good idea bad idea? MY main goal is to get more athletic and West side is doing that but i feel i good really get my lifts up with SS. Idk any input would be awesome.

Finishing off my freshmen year of high school with a few regrets. 1 st was not putting in enough effort in school. I am going to finish off the year with a 2.8 and i am disappointed. Second was dealing with my lifting. I should of listened to everyone earlier and started making progress earlier. I do strongly advise every beginner to forget all the bullshit and just jump on a proven program and lift, eat, and run.

squat- 55x5- 180x1

weight - 143-181



first pic is me at 143

this one are a few of me at 181

sorry for the weird faces

last one.

this is 10 months of inconsistent training and poor food choices. Goals by next year at this time are 205 bench and 250 squat. I want to keep my weight similar or just add slowly. More concerned about strength. Still doing hills once a week and will continue to add more days a week as the season approaches. Nothing to be impressed about just want to have progress pics for down the road. Anyways im hungry
