Is there a way I can get my squat max higher at home? Like something I can do before I shower before school or after school.

I am so close to 400, I just want to get it up. I lift after school in our weight room, I just want to do some extra stuff also. If you didn't notice with my name, I want to do this for football.

Height- 5'6
Weight- 212 lbs
40-yard dash- 5.6 seconds
Shuttle Run- 4.9 seconds
10-yard dash- 1.65 seconds
Squat- 381 lbs
Hang Clean- 218 lbs
Bench- 225 lbs
Vertical- 24 inches

Woah.... what position do you play?

5'6 212 is damn stocky for highschool, and judging by your 40 time to stocky. If your running a 5.6 at that weight it's in your best interests for football to go on a cut sometime this spring. Your strength is fine for 15, id definetly focus on the speed and agility.

D Line (Nose) lol I ran better than some of the D Tackles who ran like 6s, one even ran a 7. This is before summer camp, in which we will do the speed and agility.

Not a big deal at NT then I suppose. Id still recommend plenty of plyometrics/spped-agility work all offseason long, a quicker 1st step then the guy across from you is a huge advantage.

fact. im amazed at how much i've gone up in squats due to the extra core work. the 300 workout floor-wipers man, they're f'n terrible.

Yes, ab planks are awesome as well, especially with a stack of plates on your back.

Get you two good spotters for your afternoon lift at school. Start with about 65% of your squat max. One Set to failure. If you do 12 plus reps move on to 70% and each time you hit 12 reps the next day you attack the legs i.e. if Monday then Wednesday and Friday go up to the nearst 5% weight.
Also don't ignore your hams. Many high school athletes ignore the hamstrings and have severly underdeveloped leg strength to their potential from how hard they work the quads.
