For the past few months, I've been spinning my wheels with inconsistencies and excuses. Starting August 1 (yesterday), I will not miss a workout for 6 months straight.
Without further nonsense, here are my starting stats and goals.
*all are best guesses as I haven't maxed recently
Long Term Goals:
It is my senior year of high school and I am training for lacrosse which starts in February. I want to be in the best shape of my life and be bigger, faster, and stronger.
*Ideal playing size is probably about 200lbs, very lean, and extremely conditioned (we run a lot) With that in mind, I have 6 months to gain about 20 lbs of muscle and lose some fat.
I will work my ass off in the gym and eat my ass off in the kitchen.
I won't be posting my diet but it will contain about 300g of protein. Basically carbs/protein in morning and fat/protein in evening. I'm not too strict as I am young and very active.
I've started Madcow's 5x5 and am lifting 3 days/week with various low-medium intensity cardio two days per week.
I essentially have to work on:
- Gaining size/strength
- Increasing speed/lateral quickness
For the first few months, the focus is on gaining size/ strength while just maintaining current cardiovascular conditioning. I'm also not worrying about speed yet.
Feel free to give any tips and please call me out if you don't see a post. Finally, thank you T Nation (greatest site ever) for everything.
