Time for a life change

How’s it going everyone im new to this site just found it 2day after I was at my doctors talking about supplements. Iv never taken anything b4. I don’t know were to start so ill get right to it.

I’m 18 turning 19 in April

Iv always been a big guy peeking at 285 when I was about 15/16, but IV always been active and worked out and played sports. Iv played basketball all my life and IV been playing football for 5 years. In high school I played nose tackle and left guard I started both ways 2 out of 4 seasons. Last season I played midget ball and started LG/C, I was about 260-265. In our first playoff game I got high-lowed and tore my left MCL pretty bad (still waiting on MRI results to see if I have to have surgery) that was in November.

Over Christmas I went to physio and everything but still gained wait and couldn’t work out at all, around December 20th I went to the gym to do some slow bike to get my knee moving and I was up to 275, so I started to hit upper body workouts hard and start to hit the abs hard (something Iv never done) and I was Weeeek. It was the first time I touched weights sense b4 the football season in late July when I was peeked
40 yard dash was 5.7
Bench – 185x13
Squat – 415x 2’

So iv been going hard on my workouts trying to go 4-5 times a week from 6-9 and im back down to around 265, the knee is getting there I just started to ditch the crutches full time, Im still hurting after workouts cuz im hitting the bike hard for 15-25 mins every workout because I cant do anything else for cardio.

OK so that brings me to right now, MRI was last Friday so I should know results soon. Im getting my bench almost back to normal and I cant really do much but bies, tires, shoulders, chest, neck, and back. And the workouts I have for these aren’t really that good so if anyone can recommend some it would be much appreciated. I was talking to some people that play football for SFU/UBC and they recommended hydroxycut hardcore to help me burn the fat quicker. I talked to my doctor today and after going over all the ingredence and everything we decided to give it a try. So I went down to GNC and got a big bottle of it and some multi vitamins. I was planning on starting the cycle tomorrow, but I need a little bit more information on how to start takeing it. I don’t know if I should take one pill in the morning with breakfast and then one before I work out or if I should just wait until I workout and take it half hour b4 to see how I handle it. When should I up the dosage and how do I know if I can handle it, the recommended dose it 3 pills 2 times a day but it says to ease into it to see how you handle.

so anyone know anything about hydroxycut, any thing I should or shouldn’t do/eat/drink wut workouts can I do with my MCL injury to increase my cardio workout and burn off those pounds. My goal is to get down to 230-235 and then build muscle back up to 245-250. But I want to get the weight down to make the rehab easier for my knee and increase my speed and agility. And then when my speed and agility is were I want it ill get back up to weight for next season, were I still don’t know were im going to play so I have to try out and I want to impress the coaches.

just over a month youve shown fine progress, 25 lbs is very good. dont waste too much of your money on supplements though. the food you eat is thrice as important as the supplements you ingest

also, you need to change up your workout imo. but thats just me.
