Hey Guys, Ive searched but my search function must be screwed up because it always says there is no available results....no matter what i search it does that. But anyways i was hoping some of you could help me.

Im 16, 6 ft 1 230 pounds and i play football, I play all the OL and DL positions. Im looking for a good routine/program that will help me get bigger and stronger. Every workout im going to add in Plyos for a warm up and some stretching at the end of the workout. From Now (April) to the end of may im working on just getting bigger faster stronger and more in shape and in June and July im working on Explosivness.

Any help here would be deeply appreciated.

I forgot to add that I have been lifting seriously for about a year or so. My max bench is 225, Squat is 350, Clean is 210, Push Press is 195, and Hex Bar DL is 440.

Shoot me an email at chris@atlargenutrition.com and I will send you a program I wrote for our Maximum Mass Stack. It contains supplement, dietary, and training protocols.

That doesn't look too bad. I would do snatches and power cleans in sets of 3. I always liked to include deads and stiff legs into my football workouts, but even in college I did more of a BB split than what the coaches had us do, and it worked great for me. The most important thing in this is the effort.

Not Day 1 if you are also going to power clean, at least I wouldn't. Maybe day 2 in place of rows. I would do 5x 3 for those as well. Day 3 might be a better option rather than the snatch if you are not proficient in it. You could also get rid of the power shrugs there as well. So Day 3 could be.

Deads 5x3
Front Squats 5x5
Hypers 5x5
DB Shoulder press, which I might also consider taking out. Though this is all what I might do. What you have above would be fine too.

What is Chris suggesting? And also have you read the DeFranco stickies?

Hey this is almost freaky but we have very similar stats. I am 17 years old and weight 230 and am 6ft tall. I also play football but I am an o linemen. My bench is 240, squat 405 and deadlift 470.

What I would do if you havent already done it is read the stickies. They are chalk full of great workouts and plenty of information, but to me it looks like you have a pretty solid workout already.

Also are you trying to lose weight or gain it? Personally for me since we have similar stats I am trying to get down to about 210 before football and get all all of my lifts to go up while doing it. So which ever one you are trying to do, make sure to read the nutrition section, there is so much good information on this site it isnt even funny.

Good luck with football and good luck with your goals.

I think you would be fine with either rep/set range for deadlifts. I would probably do 3x3 with pretty heavy weight. When are you going to start this routine?
