    RB Football Pre-Season...What do u guys think so far? Suggestions?!


    Alright guys....i need some help/advice. Im going to be a Sophomore in high school and im going to play Running Back again for the 4th year in a row. I started lifting last summer and on monday i start again this summer after about 1 week off. I am going to get the Drive/RPM/Neo Var stack on Thurs. or Fri. I obviously want to get stronger (right now max. Squat 400, Bench 250, Cleans 250) and i want to get faster. Im doing an acceleration program this summer but i also want to do some running on my own. Monday i will be able to put my workout on here and i am going to start running.

    IT WOULD BE AWESOME if you guys could lay out an ideal diet for me (5'6 160) and tell me what to run and how much. Also should i swim alot?? So ANY TIPS AND OTHER ADVICE would be awesome!! Also it would be great if you could answer my ?s!!

    THANKS

    swimming laps is a great alternative to cardio and is definitely a great activity. It's not my expertise, but I do do it on the occasion. As for RPM, Drive, and Neovar just follow the dosing recommended on the back of the bottle. Check out velocity training and use parachute/ sled to get your speed and power up.

    I would advise against buying a parachute. They mess with your running mechanics and nothing can ever replace or be better than sprints with full recovery for speed development.

    Yes, the resistance is uneven. Would you do a squat with 200 pounds on one side and 175 on the other?

    Don't bother wasting your money.

    Would you probably get some gains from it? Yeah probably some slight gains. If you are under trained or a beginner then most gadgets will work to get you faster because you are training where as before you weren't.

    To get faster the basics are the best, always have been and always will be. For football, work on short sprints ( 10 to 40 yards ) and make sure you have full CNS recovery before each sprint. To get faster you need to run faster and you need full recovery to achieve this. Lift heavy and be sure to keep your reps low.

    If you haven't already do a google search for Westside for Skinny Bastards 3.

    It is easily the best generalized program out there for football players.

    Swimming on your low intensity days will help for active recovery but make sure you eat like a horse.

    I played RB/QB in high school - LB in college I would definitely say that you need to lift hard, eat a lot of food - work on speed, agility, foot work. Squats, deadlifts, power cleans, bench, rows, pullups, military press, thats about all you need man. at 160lbs you are pretty small, I would try to bulk up if you can and still keep your speed. I ran a 4.70 when i was a Soph, and then all I did was run sprints all summer long 100s and 200s i gained 15lbs and still cut my 40 down to 4.51... thats my advice good luck

    I would say you still need to gain at least 20lbs if you want move to the next level, but if you just want to play in HS then you will be fine where you are at.

    Football is the greatest sport in America and requires lots of dedication and training... Get the advice of a CSCS would be my recommendation...
