Officially been seriously lifting for about 8 months now. However i;ve always done light lifting through high school. Time to be serious though, I'll be planning to be 220 at 10% bf for football by the end of this summer, currently 200 at 9%.

I'm in the middle of a 9 week program setup by our football coach and will not have maxes posted till that's done, however my bests lifts are:
DL (hex bar): 485 for 3
DL: 415 for 4
Squat: 315 for 8 (after 3 sets prior to :))
Bench 265 estimated max for now.:whiner:

I consider most of my lifts low compared to where i should be at a solid 200, however this is only the beginning of my lifting, everything i have thus far has been earned from hard work outside of the weight room (extreme overtime during wrestling season) basically taking the extra mile during practice.

EDIT: Looking for an overall opinion on size and proportion.


Hang clean Max: 285
hang snatch max: 185

you look decent, however don't look like 9% bf.

Yeah, agreed. Looks like maybe 12-13?

Also, where do you play at 20 years of age? University ball?

You have a solid base. 20lbs of solid muscle between now and the end of the summer...not likely unless you are not natural. 20lbs between now and then, sure, but not solid muscle unless you are a genetic freak,

Don't worry so much about making a certain weight requirement, unless you don't mind having your bodyfat % jump up to 20% or more.

Just try to keep moving up heavier weights and eat for the weight to come along. If your diet is in order you should be gaining strength while keeping bodyfat to a minimal gain.

You look solid, I'm unsure as to where your position is by your stats? Defensive back/safety?
