View Full Version : Looking for some guidance

01-12-2009, 06:49 PM
Hello everyone, I'm new here as you can tell.

I'm looking for a little help.
Just a little background about me.

I'm currently 16 years old, 6' tall, 260 pounds.
I run a 5.4 in the 40 yard dash.
My max on bench is 215.
My max on squat is 325.
My max on cleans is 195.

Basically my story is I started out at 185 pounds a year and a half ago, I was really weak and football made me a good bit stronger.
At the end of the season I was 240 pounds and allot stronger.
My appetite went crazy during football and I felt the urge to eat every 3 hours, and I still have this appetite.
I quit after a while because I picked up a job for a little while and I stopped working out completely, for about a year.

I recently got into a weightlifting class at my school and I really want to bust my ass hard and become leaner and stronger.

This is where you guys come in.
- How many calories does my body need just to function?
- How many calories do I need on hard workout days?
- I eat allot of junk, what kind of foods should I look at?
- I was thinking about trying some NO2 Shotgun or some superpump for really heavy days.

Goals in the next 18 weeks
- Increase my bench max by as much as possible
- Shave some time off of my 40 yard dash
- Lose fat, gain muscle
- Lose some of this big belly of mine

Read the stickies. Search other threads dealing with the same stuff. All of your questions have been asked and answered time and time again.

Once you learn what you can, come back with more specific questions. Sounds crappy but it actually works better if you learn and digest the information on your own rather than have someone spoonfeed you.
