Jumpshots quest for being lean, mean, and strong.

  1. Jumpshots quest for being lean, mean, and strong.

    About me
    My name is Kevin im 22 and a collegiate baseball player in Florida, i've been lifting for roughly 5 years on and off ive made some strides but still no where near where i should be with this long of training. Im in my final year of playing college baseball as a pitcher and am trying to make it my best but putting in the extra work over the offseason and coming in shredded.

    At the moment i sit at about 6'3 195 and about 11% BF im trying to get up to 205 by winter break and hopefully maintain that throughout the season.


    Overall my training is as this, we have team lifts 3 days a week which completely messes up my overall routine since all 2 of the workouts are garbage and one is just legs which is solid but on my off days i always hit the gym and target the body parts that i missed in the team workouts as is there is no current routine it's just using my knowledge to get a good workout each week based on what i feel i need. I currently run about 3-4 times a week usuaslly 1-2 miles at 8-8.5mph and incororporate yoga and stretching 3-4 times a week as well.

    My diet has recently been altered a bit the early part of my day needs some work but i don't have much time at lunch to make a solid meal, im aiming for right around 40/40/20 macros at the moment its 43 C/ 39 P/ 17 F i believe but that changes daily. As far as supplements go all im on is Whey, Multi, Creatine, BCAA once closer to the season when i start to run more and cut a bit im going to probally dose Natadrol which i have used multiple times high dosed to great effectivness for keeping strength while cutting.

    Heres a sample diet

    Meal 1- 4 eggs 405 cals 5 carbs 30g fat 27g protein

    Meal 2- 2 slices Ezekeil Bread with 2 tbsp PB 540 cals 44g carb 33g fat 22g protein

    Meal 3- 1 Banana or apple or Pinneapple 1 Cliff Builder bar 380 cals 53g carbs 8g fat 20g protein

    Meal 4- Protein Shake in Milk 390 cals 32g carbs 4g fat 57 g protein

    Meal 5- 8oz Chicken 1 cup Brown Rice 1/2 Cup Brocoli 425 cals 45g carbs 4g fat 52g protein

    Meal 6- Chobani Greek Yogurt 140 cals 20g carbs 14g protein

    Totals- 2,280 cals 198 carbs 79g fat 193g protein

    Thats a normal day often i ingest closer to 2,500 cals which is where i want to be but this is the scheduled meals i have.

    Alright so my first workout is today and i'll try to keep this as up to date as possible

    GOALS Goal Current

    Weight - 205 (196.8)

  2. I'll be following your progress bud!


  3. Day 1- Legs

    Weight- Weighed in at gym scale at 199 but electronic scale has me around 195

    Today was my first day really doing a full leg day in probally a month i was having hip flexer problems and it was nearly impossible to go down to even parallel on squats so i decided to come back and try hack squats and it was virtually pain free despite still feeling the lingering problems in my hip flexor before. I felt the workout was solid but the numbers are not impressive for where they should be hopefully within the next two months i can get back to where i was and even build some strength.

  5. Alright back after another little MIA session, but some updates...

  7. Tuesday- 11/29/11

    Upper Body

    Team workout today focused on upper body not going to post exactly since its a bit confusing bt give the general jist of it.

    Warmup- 5 min bike
    Static/Dynamic stretching
    Foam roll

    Most of the workout involved an upper body lift supersetted with either an ab work or supplementary lift the workout itself wasn't that great doesn't hit much muscles which is why i do most of the bulk of lifting on my own.

    The main lift was Push Press i did 4 sets of 6 with my last one being 155x6 felt good on the press and could have gone higher but for less reps and he wants us at 6 reps, Was supersetted with physioball work.

    Other sets involved work with TRX Bands and bodyweight movements nothing really to say other then not the best workout

    Finised workout with med ball circle then got in some pullups and forearms.

    Tommorow i'll hit probally an extended back/bis/shoulder workout since it will be last indepent workout of the week,

  8. 12/5/11


    Ok i havent been able to give muc updates since the workouts i have been have been too annoying to describe and fill out so i'll only post indepth on my own workouts and try to keep up todate my others. Today was just a normal leg day didn't doo too much today but felt great during squats been looking to incoroporate maybe some jumps between squats gonna try next time.

    Current Weight-201

    10 Min bike
    Static/Dynamic Stretching

    Back Squat-
    315x2 *PR* never got 2 reps before felt great could have gone to 325 but opted not too

    Front Squats- Wasn't feeling it today wrists were bothering didn't even come close to matching last week, right wrist felt like it was gonna pop even at just 145

    Hack Squat- Got a bit distracted and just opted to hit the hack squat machine supersetted some squats with calf raises weight without sled

    I felt burnt from the squats so didn't do to much else

    1.5 Mile at 8-9.5 MPH

    Static Stretching

    So overall good workout front squats were nice gonna try to hit 325 next week my other leg workout later in the week focuses on the smaller muscles no squats.
