Nice session. Bench and rows looking good weight.
Nice weight on those power cleans aswell - big movement to do.
Hey buddy, your schedule is gonna be busy as hell. I would make sure that you get as many meals and calories in as you can. I remember when I was in high school every college coach that called, the first thing they would ask me is how much do you weigh.
Thats not bad with the power cleans. You may want to just use the bar and work on your form. I've done that and still do sometimes when it comes to cleans and snatches and it helps.
Let all those other shitty backers cheat all they want. It will show up on gameday. You'll be making your reads 10x faster than any of those guys and just like you said, your footwork will be much better. That footwork turns into what I like to call "football speed". Some guys aren't burners in the shuttle or 40, but they are on the field because they make reads and have excellent footwork. Unless of course those guys are on your team. What scheme are you guys running? Does your coach have you guys going downhill or playing side to side?
that's like me I have football speed
I'm not bad on the shuttle but my 40 sucks
and we are running a 4-4 with the strong side outside sometimes coming down over TE to stop him from getting quick releases before we drop back into our zone, thats where they have me playing
and we are running more side to side for our backers
I love the pump because when the pump arrives it's better than cumming. And because I really like working out a lot, it's like I'm cumming all day.
Any Strength is made perfect in weakness

Yeah I know exactlly what you mean. Being a linebacker you'll probably never do another timed 40 when you get to college. I sure havent so I have no idea what my time is. My fastest time in the pro shuttle was a 4.3 I know what type of defense your talking about, its good for stopping the run. I prefer playing more downhill though.
Your workouts are looking great. You continue to get stronger every week man thats great. If you keep getting stronger those tight ends will be laying on their back haha.
hypo: yeah my back was swole after that
lionheart: thanks and nah my leg is fine now thankfully I had 4 days without lifting on it
bambam: thanks bambam, and today i felt even stronger on my squats even though my legs are tired from work, I worked up on my weight getting a heavy workout and still go a personal best on squat
315X2.5 (swayed forward a little bit and lost it on the way up)
bb standing calf raise
got a great pump from these
Thats good volume on the calves. With the squat, do you watch a mirror or do you look up while you do it. I always found that staring at the ceiling kept me more stable and kept my back straighter too.
el freako: I just look up some and straight ahead when I squat, we don't have any mirrors in our weight room, I wish we did though
rocky: thanks, yeah the weights really are going up, I hit my best ever on that last squat and my legs were already tired from working all day and the other sets before that
didn't get to workout yesterday because of a passing league game
but we beat our crosstown rivals so it was worth it, they are tied for the top team in our league
we play them again today but we are going to get a "light" workout in before
I'm still gonna go heavy just fewer exercises
probably just gonna hit bench, shrugs, and maybe bent row, we'll see how long they let us workout for
had a coach help me out with my bench form after a little while of him watching me hit my sets
(now the coach started helping with the form)
135X12 (1 rep was full the next was half, alternated that way through this set and the next)
135X12 (straight reps)
and bambam football is going good but having two games a week plus working a full time job is making it hard to get enough time in the weight room
I just did another session of just bench
my max less than a month ago was 195
and that was a fresh 195, I demolished that today with reps
