After about 7 months of transformation on my own I have decided to star a log to keep me motivated and see if I can get any advice from other people.
Background: I am 19 years old and training to play football. The last four years I played in High School as a Center. I was 5’10 and 240lbs by my senior year, but it was as much fat as it was muscle and thus I was quite slow and not very good. During my senior year I tore my MCL, grade 3, and ended my season and any chance of being recruited to play in college…
Since then I have gone on a low-carb diet after an initial V-Diet and have gone from 240lbs to 180lbs in about 7 months. During this I maintained all of my strength levels, and even went up in some. I will include more information about my transformation later.
Now at 180lbs I have enrolled in College for next year as just a student. But I plan to spend the summer training so that I can try and walk on to the team in the fall, but at a new position. I know I won’t be a center anymore, so I’m thinking either a Linebacker, although i know I’m a little short and light for that at the moment, or a safety, although I will need to get much faster. Which position I play doesnt matter to me, I just want to do whatever gets me the best chance of making the team and getting on the field.
My plan for this summer is too start lifting for football again and make the football team as a walk on. For training, and this will probably get my log more traffic than anything about my plan, I am going to try to work out at Joe DeFranco’s (they are only about a mile away from me). I know that this is the best place for me to achieve what I want and I have already talked to them so I will keep you updated on what happens.
For diet I am still on a pretty generic low carb diet, and don’t have much of an idea as where I am going to go next. If I deiced between linebacker or saftey may affect that, although I will probably have to get bigger for each position.
I’ve been a member of this site and constantly read the articles and forums, although I don’t post much, so I feel like now that I say this I am accountable to someone besides my self… a little extra motivation not to embarrass my self by failing. Any advice on football, training, diet, or keeping up a transformation will be greatly appreciated.
