This is my first post, ive been reading a bunch of articles on this site and others. Im now inspired to get my self in shape. I use to be really fat at 250lbs and only 5'10 I dropped down to 190 over last summer but am no where in the shape i want to be in. I play alot of basketball and I want to increase my speed/vertical/endurance.
my current stats are:
18 years old
vertical of 25-29in
Plan of action:
Lift weights 3x a week M/W/F(full body workout)Lighter weights higher reps due to safety(in garage with no spotter/squat rack)
and games on saturday or sunday.
Diet of 1500-2000(healthy) calories. I also bought some supplements to encourage me to stick with it I plan to take:
in the morning-gold standard 100% whey protein, glutamine powder, xenadrine efx, kre-alkalyn 1500.
xenadrine in the early afternoon
kre-alkalyn 1500 pre workout
glutamine powder/whey protein post workout
and whey protein before bed
I want to drop 20 lbs or more of fat, add a little muscle, increase vert to 30+ hopfully by the end of march. I have a few questions that id like some input on:
1Are my goals reasonable?
2Should i add/drop/rearrange any of my supplements?
3 a noob question but, can i mix my glutamine and protein in the same drink?
Any advice/tips are welcome, hopfully you guys wont tear me shreds since im such a noob.
