I'm 6-2 221 and play football in college. I play tight end and slot. In september i shattered my jaw in practice and went fom 208 to 185 in three weeks. I couldnt play the rest of the season and after recovery all i did was lift. I lifted to hard for to long with no breaks. Right now im paying for this. I have a left hammy that wont heal, a right shoulder that inflames every time i bench and i have to get hernia surgery monday.
Apparently being 18 and stubborn doesnt help when people tell u to rest. I went to heavy for too long and am paying for it. I had been noticing pain in my hammy and stomache for a month but i kept lifting balls out. Four weeks ago I was deadlifting 495 and i only got it for three. The next morning i woke up and knew i had a hernia.
Well the doc said its a two week recovery til i can start jogging again and doing some abs and then 2 more weeks until im back to 100%. That leaves me 132 days or so until summer practice. At my peak this winter i was 223, deadlift was 550, squat 520 and my bench was 285. Arms 16.5 and bf 9.4%. I havent squatted for 5 weeks or deadlifted or ran for the last 4 weeks.
By August i want to be 228 9.2%bf, 18"arms, deadlift 560, sqaut 550, bench 330 and clean 300. I also want to be greatly conditioned. Well this is the start of a long jounrey hopefully free of injury. Ill be starting up jogging and abs in two and a half weeks.
