need workout plan
hey guys, i know its pry a pain in the a$$ but do you think you could help me with a good workout program for strength and size? i am a senior in high school, i play football and baseball, i have been lifting for 5 years but only have gotten serious in the past 1 1/2. our programs given to us by our coaches are terrible and i feel i have plateaud, i am decent sized, pretty strong, and in good shape but feel i can take it MUCH further. any help would be much appreciated.

mass gainers / compound movements are your best friend right now - also the powerlifting 3 (deads, squats, bench)
i would do back/bi's:
chins (great for biceps)
chest / tri's
close grip bench
close grip pullovers
squats (ass to ground)
make sure these are included in your workout on the appropriate days, then supplement other exercises as needed. those listed should be the CORE of your workout. mass gainers are 4 sets of 10, strength gainers are 3 sets of 5-6. i would do one month focused on strength, one month of mass, rinse repeat. at your age, gaining should not be a problem - you'll have to learn how to really push yourself though.

Definitely agree with suncloud that compound movements are the way to put on mass and stay athletic. Our strength coach in high school was a beast. The week after we maxed out, we'd do the following rep scheme for bench/squat after school:
Week 1: 6 sets of 10
Week 2: 8 sets of 10
Week 3: 10 sets of 10
The weight increases and decreases pyramid type throughout it, with the heaviest set being 80% of your max. The first time you try to do it for squat, you won't be able to walk for a week if done correctly. Again, make sure you're breaking parallel or your not getting half of the strength/mass gains. The whole purpose of that rep scheme is to build mass and get used to your new max, which should be heavier than before. The weeks after, we went into lower rep (5-6) schemes.
We didn't do a lot of deadlifting, but I do now. I would also throw in power clean one day and snatch on another. Will definitely help you on the field cuz of how explosive the movements are.
