    Teenage Football Player looking to lose weight and gain muscle


    Hello, I am a 17 year old football player who is currently 5'9 and 225 lbs. My goal is to be between 190 and 200 lbs and very strong and ripped. I eat 4 meals a day. Meal 1 5:30 am I eat 3 eggs with cheese and some wheat toast plain or sometimes with peanut butter and a banana. Meal 2 is at school during lunch around 11 am, I either bring a chicken sandwich or i buy a chicken cesar salad at school. Then after school i go to the gym i do 15 mins of cardio then lift then i finish with another 15 mins of cardio. Then when i get home i drink my protein shake which is 60 grams of protein. Then i eat dinner between 6-8 pm then go to bed and repeat.

    Right now i am taking a protein shake, multivitamin and fireball inferno cla to burn fat. I take those as directed on the instructions.


    What can i do to get the results i want such as workouts and a better diet and any other supplements i need to take.


    It would be great if someone can help me, it will be extremely appreciated.

    Well first of all you seem to be a very dedicated player. But supplements are supplements they help but diet is 80 percent of ur gains. First off your meal plan is absolutely horrible. HORRIBLE!!!! this will help you out Meal 1 500 am Protein Shake, whole grain oatmeal, apple and bannana Meal 2 620 4 eggs 3 slices of turkey bacon and 2 slices of whole wheat toast Meal 3 9am Turkey Breast and Cheese on wheat bread 11am a salad with chicken and a chicken sandwich Meal 4 Preworkout meal 205 Tuna Sandwich, Protein shake and a bannana 330 Postworkout Postworkout shake and 1 hour later eat another tuna sandwich 530 eat what is for dinner unless its unhealty 8pm turkey sandwich 9pm protein shake then bed

    Your supplements should be Labrada Pro v60, Labrada creatine,Labrada glutamine, multivitamin, multimineral,BCAA,along with your fat burner

    if u have the money those r the supplements I suggest but remember eat healthy and dont buy from GNC

    take in lean proteins and good carbs..
    oatmeal/turkey/chicken/whole wheats/fishes/tuna..
    Your trying to base it around a school schedule: which isn't exactly the easiest to do.. I'd suggest possibly making a protein drink with about 100grams of protein with you to school and sip throughout the day..
    Your on the right track, if your really trying to lean out then you want to up the cardio and increase salad and vegie intake... don't completely remove carbs from your diet however: specifically your post workout meal.
    I'm an extreme "ectomorph" who has a high metabolism so I've never taken any weight loss supplements and can't help you there however.
    General consensus just take lean proteins (as stated) with some greens included..
    You can also try to eat your meals slowly which will help you get fuller faster: hence less calorie intake

    1: Eat six meals a day.
    2: Combine carbohydrates and protein with every meal with veggies at least twice a day.
    4. Do 12 min warm up cardio-then lift- then finish with longer cardio then you have been doing.
    5.Train at your Fat Buring Zone.
    6.Replace 1-3 meals with a protein drink if you would like.
    **The key is to train at 65% to 75% of your target heart rate zone. Your age tells me you need to train between 132-152 heart beats per min. That's 65 to 75% of your heart rate zone.
    Do not exceed 152 beats per min. and stay above 132 bpm.
    Invest in a heart rate monitor. (Cheapest you can find will work)
    Stay within this range while working out for optimal results.
    After all this is program was made for you specifically with gaining muscle while shedding some pounds.
    While your lifting if your heart rate drops cause your waiting for a machine do sit ups or push-ups anything to keep your heart rate in the zone.

    Haddock
    Salmon
    Tuna
    Crab

    Shrimp
    Top round steak
    Top sirloin steak
    Lean ground beef
    Lean ham
    Egg whites or substitutes
    Trout
    Low-fat cottage cheese
    Here is a list of Carbs

    Yams
    Squash
    Pumpkin
    Steamed brown rice

    Figure out what you like, what's healthy and what's cheap. Then eat enough of it spread evenly throughout the day to total 2600 calories. Done deal.

    I would take the approach taken by Phillips in the "Body For Life" book; Phillips suggest a fist full of a protein and a fist full of a carb with each meal.
    A workout for gaining muscle quickly to prepare for a football season and to reduce risk of injury is to first.
    1. max out benching.
    2. max out on squats.
    This will give you a gauge of your strength and give you feedback on the gains you have made with this workout. Plus it can tell me where you need to start your weights for now ill use bench 145 as an example.
    You said you did 15 min of cardio before so get a stretch in after your cardio and stretch at the end of your workout.

    3 x 8 all exercises
    Drop 5 pounds each set
    **The next time you work out start 5 pounds heavier using same method.see bottom**
    ie.
    Monday Chest and Tri
    Bench 145 x8
    140 x8
    135 x8
    incline 3x8 same method
    decline 3x8 same method
    ----------------------------------------
    Tri Push Down (high pully) 3x8
    Lying Tri extension (skullcrushers) 3x8
    Tri Push Back 3x8-
    ---------------------------------------------
    Tuesday off or Cardio and Abs (Train in fat burning zone)
    Wed Back and biceps
    Lat pull down 3x8
    Seated rows 3x8
    bent over rows 3x8
    biceps
    straight bar curl 3x8
    db curl 3x8
    preacher curl 3x8
    Thursday rest or cardio and abs
    Friday Legs and Shoulders
    Squat 3x8
    leg curl 3x8
    leg extentions 3x8
    lunges 3x8
    -----------------
    shoulders
    upright rows 3x8
    front db lat raise 3x8
    side db lat raise 3x8
    **next time you do chest and tri you now start with bench
    150x8
    145x8
    140x8

    These exercises are just basics.
    Control all movements when lifting!
    Dont be THAT GUY pushing heavy weights with no form.
    Its quality not quantity.
    Always use a spotter (he has to help you finish the set if you get stuck).
    Ask your strength coach or head coach if this works for him.
    He might want you doing cleans and dead lifts etc.
    After 2 or 3 months you would change up these exercises for new ones to trick your muscles.
    Lastly, get a physical and ask your doctor if your cleared to work out.
    Let me know if you have any ?'s

    If you have any questions just call the store 800-866-1970.
    If you get stuck doing a set have your spotter get you through it.
    Make sure you bring a pen and paper with you to document each set.
    If you can not finish the set on your own, the next time you do that exercise drop 10-30 pounds and work your way back up. This will make you stronger.
    Your bench and squat max, will go up anywhere between 50 to 125 pounds

    If your trying to cut why would you take a creatine product. If your going to take it wait until you lose the weight first.

    Sure you can lose weight but wouldn't you want to lose as much as possible? You are big enough right now. You said you would like to lose 30 pounds. You can gain water weight at any time by taking creatine. Or you can eat a lot of red meat if you really want the creatine. I think it is more of a psychological advantage for motivation to get in the weight room is it not? There is nothing wrong with that but lose the weight first. That is your goal you can always take this product in 2 or 3 months. The work out you have is perfect for making gains.

    well i was a defensive tackle and a left guard but we just got a couple of good kids for those positions. We had a couple of seniors at defensive end so thats why i want to cut weight so i can try for defensive end, it will abviously help me get quicker. I will be a senior next season by the way. I also want to know if i should take casein protein along with my regular whey, but take the casein before bed.

    If you are taking 3 servings of protein a day, you will have enough bcaa's in those 3 servings. If you are eating as directed you really do not need Casien. If you or your parents don't mind spending cash on Casien then go for it.

    If you think it will help then don't let me talk you out of the BCAA's/Leucine. Find out first from your amino acid profile how much you are getting with each protein serving. Then find out how much want to supplement.

    It is so expensive the casien that is, use it sparingly at night. Split the serving size with your protein. This way it at least will taste good.

    Hey Marcus ATW, its been a while since we talked and i just wanted to ask you if i should drink a preworkout drink to get me goin u know. I also wanted to know if i should do HIIT cardio because ive heard great things about it. I also realized that im not drinking 3 shakes a day, i drink one after working out and i drink a casein before bed, but im doing really good on my diet eating carbs and protein with every meal and eating about 6 times a day. I just wanted to update you and see wat u think about the preworkout drink.

    There is a lot of pre workout drinks out there. We have a good one with our no2xplode. You might want to take a fat burner before your workout instead. If your only drinking 1 or 2 shakes a day you then can add Bcaa's if you would like since you would not be getting enough with your protein. Lost any weight yet? How is the workout going?

    All Bcaa's are the same it all comes down to the ratio. Hiit is good but do u recall me advising you to get a heart rate monitor and staying in your heart rate zone? The key is to burning fat besides dieting is to do cardio or weight training in your target heart rate zone.

    Hey Marcus ATW i have a couple of questions to ask you. 1. My workouts are goin good but i noticed that i really suck at benching, everything else is fine its just the benching is weak. I'll do 135 8 times pretty easy then ill do the 130 and the 125 also 8 times also easy, but then i start to notice my arms get really tired and when i get to incline and decline its really hard for me because my arms are so tired. 2. All my other main lifts (squats and deadlifts and the other stuff i do each day) i have been going up with the weight each week with no problem, but once again my bench still suffers. I've been at 135 for the whole time and i feel 145 although isnt that heavy i struggle keeping my form and finishing all 8 reps. I want to beable to bench alot more than 145.

    So i was just wondering if im doing something wrong or if you suggest any preworkout supps to get me in the zone or something...

    Bench is the key that is what you will be tested on before the season starts.
    Just concentrate on getting stronger with your bench.
    Incline is a very tough exercise compared to decline obviously.
    Keep moving up 5 pounds when you do you bench that's the main goal.
    Here are a few things that worked for me when I was your age to help from feeling fatigued.
    1)Do an exercise or 2 of tri's after you completed 3 sets of bench. (Take about 2-3 min break after each set) I know I told you to keep your heart rate in your burning zone but don't worry about it doing chest or any other major muscle group for that matter! This will help your recovery. (Do cardio after your workouts in your HR zone if you can)
    2)Instead of doing straight bar incline or decline, do db press instead to mix it up.
    3)After your Chest/Tri workout do as many push-ups as you can till your burn out.
    Im proud of you man your doing great!! It takes a while for your chest to get used to doing bench! I guess it's time for you to take a supplement or 2 to give you an edge and you deserve it.
    Whey Protein, No2XL and maybe Creatine MH I really liked Kre-alk personally!
    BTW did you get the physical we talked about?
    Ask your doctor and your parents before you buy these supps! And let the great guys in here know your goals and that your a player etc. and ask what they recommend. Keep up the great work in the weight room!!!!!

    We have No2XL here send me your address ill send you a few days worth to see if it works well worth your genetic makeup. Kre-Alk I also have here we are going to release in about a week. Ask someone on here where they get it or if they recommend a certain company for kre-alk. In fact let them know your situation and ask them their opinion ask "should I take creatine mono or Kre-alk? I was taking Kre-alk for a few weeks and had to stop I was actually getting to big.
