Hi everyone I'm a new member here. This is my first post and I was interested in what's going on here. I'm 17 years old, and I've never worked out in my life. I'm doing it now and I was wondering if I could have your advice on my training. I'm 6'3" and I'm overweight at 290lbs. I'm not terribly out of shape, but I do have a lot of fat and would like some advice. My goal is to make the basketball team next year at my highschool. I'm easily the tallest person in high school here, and my teacher told me I could grow to 6'8". My arms are 6'8" and I've never had a growth spurt, I've just always been bigger than others. So it's possible I suppose.
Here's my workout currently- 3miles jog, everyday
Basic weight training workout 3 times a week
Shooting baskets for 1 hour everyday
Some extra cardio on the days I'm not doing weights.
I have about 6 months to get in good shape. I'm sticking to about an 2800 calorie diet, but low carbs and tons of protein. I really want to accomplish my goal, and ill do anything to get there. Give me any advice or recommendations to get where I need to be. Final weight isn't as important as endurance, VERTICAL, strength, and fat to muscle conversion. Please tell me anything and everything you can suggest and ill work at it. I have the motivation, tell me what to do. Thanks!
