Hey I posted on here before about football…But long story short Im going to be Playing football in Fall of 2007 in college…Its now January and next week Im getting another 3-month membership.
So I plan on strength/conditioning training January through the end of March( 3 months), then I will do my Speed/Agility training during the 8-weeks of April and May all to get ready for the summer football workouts.
Now I wasnt quite sure on how to go about losing weight I currently weigh 210lbs and I have a little gut and I think Id be better at about 190 lbs to play running back. So during Jan-March what kind of “conditioning” should I do???..I looked in to Interval Training on a bicycle 10 seconds all out/50 second rest for 30 minutes. And I thought about circuit training and this High Intensity Treadmill routine I have.
I was wondering what would be a good idea on losing the 20 to 25 pounds necessary in the 12 weeks of Jan-March, all while not getting “skinny” and losing any strenght or speed in the process.I now how to strenght train I do chins and pull ups, benching, squats, box squats, shoulder work, cleans,deadlifts, low back raises, step ups and split squats…etc…,my strenght and speed is improving I just want to be in better shape.Ive been lifting weights consistent no longer than 7 or 8 months.I want the “look”…I know thats not important but still I need to be in better shape.
Here are some measurables and stats:
40 yard- 4.48 best, 4.54 worst.
Bench- 275 lbs
Deads- 365 lbs
Box Squat-415 lbs
185 Reps- 18 times
225 reps- 9 times.
Dumbell Split-Squats- 100lbs.
Step Ups- 100lbs.
