I am a new member here. I am currently in the military but should be getting out in July. I want to start college and get into weight lifting. I will going back to Florida for school. My question is, does anyone know any colleges with a good program? I competed a little in highschool and then stoppe for a while. I have been training for the last 8 months and have gained a bunch of muscle back. My current stats ae below. If you have any suggestions let me know please.
Height : 6'4"
Weight now : ~215
My squats are really low right now because of a football injury to my back. I just now started doing squats again within the past 4 months.
Good program for what?
Weightlifting (the sport, what they do in the olympics)?
Squats work better than supplements.
"You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei
"You're wrong, and I have a completely irrelevant pubmed abstract that may or may not say so." - Belial
I has a blog.
I has a facebook.
Weightlifting or Powerlifting. Whatever I can get involved in. I did the olympic lifts in High School and enjoyed that. I want to go to a school that has a program there but I dont know any good ones in Florida.
A couple google searches should hook you up with a powerlifting group in florida.

Powerlifting Westside Style
pretty much all major colleges should have a powerlifting or oly lifting team or group-type thing... at least thats how it is in the midwest.
-Girls like big strong men, all the other men has to find a niche or a thing they supposedly love, you know...like saving whales or reading books, to get laid.
-Look..first I am scared little freezing virgin munk, but then I bare my self and I am nothing like a freezing virgin!
-Then I saw a little african boy sleeping, and I thought...that is little Okeke, he is tired from herding all the goats and the big goat got away today.
