    Football prospect

    Well after being away from lifting for awhile and then on and off I'm finally back to health and ready to go again. I've managed to get myself up to 123 lbs. Which is more than I weighed at my first major try at this. Football weightlifting starts monday. I've never played before but next year is my senior year and I'm considering it. I figure if I can get myself up to 145-150 by next summer I'm play. I know it will take a lot of time and dedication though. Next semester I have a weightlifing and speed training class. That will also help considerign I'll have to lift for a grade. As a short term goal I want to be at 130lbs by christmas.

    Lifted today. Did a Push split. After gaining weight I felt a lot stronger. I went up on all of my lifts. I didn't go to hard though with this being my first day back in awhile.
    DB Bench press-35's-2-8
    Close grip bench-70-2-10
    Overhead DB press-31's-2-6
    Flyes-25's-1-8
    Frontal Raises-20-1-8
    Seems like I did something else to but I can't remember. Oh well. I'll remember next workout. With this workout being so late I was too tired to do too many sets. Well I guess this is it for now. I'll probably workout friday or saturday then again monday.

    I'm 5'6" and I plan on playing cornerback.

    After eating mass food today I chopped wood. First with an axe. Then I split the wood with a wedge and a 12lb sledge hammer. After about an hour of that I could no longer feel my forearms. It was quite a good back workout also. Because of that I probably won't workout until saturday.

    Well this weekend did go as planned. Saturday I spend the whole day at my friends grandmas house. So I never got a chance to workout. Had to work the biggest part of today and I figured seeing how football weightlifting started tomorrow I could get it in finally my mom informs me that I have a doctors appointment tomorrow so I'm going to miss that. Oh well I guess I'll just life at home. Then go to football lifting wednesday.

    First weightlifting for football I could make it to today. The only I don't like about it is that we have to go by the lifts the coaches write on the board. I think its definately overtraining, I know it will just be like that the first couple weeks cause everybodys been away from lifting for awhile.
    Bench-3 sets-10 reps-95, 85, 65
    skullcrusher-6 sets-10 reps-45 last couple sets included many forced reps
    Tricep pulldown-3 sets-10-15(by this time I didn't know I had triceps left)
    One arm db bench-3 sets-15-12

    That was the hardest arm workout I've had in awhile. I never train like that and it was quite hard. I'm use to doing 3 sets for 6 reps. Not all these sets and reps. Next weightlifting day is Thursday.

    Shrugs-1-10-70 1-10-80

    Pretty good workout, it was nice to do some sqauts. The funny thing is I got there late after everyone had already squatted and I squatted more than anyone else there. Most of the lineman weren't there though, it was mainly receivers and DBs. I was talking to the db coach and he told me that it was pretty bad that I squatted more than everyone else and I have never played football before. Then he went around telling all the coaches I squatted more than everyone else. WHOO. Go me. Not bad for my bench either. Thats a PR for me and my triceps still feel like jello from tuesdays lifts.

    Did some stuff for lifting I haven't done before. One rep max on goodmornings.
    GM-3-45 3-65 3-75 3-95 3-115 3-135 2-155 1-170(most of this was just warm ups but by the time I got to 170 my back was dead)
    SLDL-3-8-95
    GLUTeHAm MAchine-3-8
    Ab pulldowns-3-10-50
    LEG raises-3-20
    Like jump rope for a total of 400 jumps.

    My back and hamstrings are quite sore now. From now on when we do max lifts I'm just gonna start out with a higher weight so I don't get tired so easily.

    Hey, I'm not trying to offend you or anything, so don't get mad. But, you must not have a very big football team. Even for DBs, those aren't very big lifts, especially for varsity. I'm only a sophomore, and I bench 175 and squat 315, and I'm not nearly the strongest DB on the team.
    But, if those are your PRs, congratulations. And I know what you mean about feeling stronger since you've gained weight. But I think you need to gain a lot more. You would get tore up if you played our team at 123. Well, keep up the good work.

    Well when you play in a division 3 league and you're school is small as hell it makes a difference. Most of the people that were in the weightroom that day were sophomores and hadn't lifted in about 5 months so its not like they had been lifting straight up for awhile. But yea most of the big lifters weren't there. My friend who plays RB benches like 250, squats over 400 and deadlifts about 450. He only weighs like 155 and is like 5'8". So its not like everyone on our team is small. Most of our seniors were the big guys.

    Tuesday workout

    explosion bench with block-3-95 3-115 1-135
    Skullcrusher-6-10-45
    tricep pulldown-3-10-15
    one arm db press-3-15-15
    neck-2-12-35

    I think thats what we did, there might have been something else too though. Bench has gone up 5 pounds. Of course this was a different variation of bench.

    With the weightroom being closed today we did a split routine that was basically a full body workout. So mainly a lot of sets of light weight and low reps for explosion.

    Bench-10-3-65
    One arm db press-3-15-15
    Side raises-3-10-10
    bent over side raises-3-10-10
    Squat-9-3-135 1-3-185 Forgot to take the 25s off after friend went
    SLDL-3-8-95
    one leg squat-2-10-30 1-10-40
    Shrugs db-3-15-30's
    neck-1-10-35
    Hammer curls-2-10-45
    wrist curls-3-50 total reps

    The receiver coaches wants us to do wrist curls everyday to help with grip. We did todays and tomorrows workout today because coaches have some sort of meeting tomorrow. I feel like I've died now. Oh well, free time tomorrow.

    Once again the weightroom was closed yesterday. So we did a little extra today.
    Bench-10-2-85(explosive reps)
    Bentover db raises-3-10-10's
    Squat-10-2-155(explosive reps)
    SLDL-3-8-95
    One leg squat-4-10-30
    one arm db rows-4-6-35
    shrugs-3-15-35's

    Pretty good workout. IT feels good to be able to do legs with a good amount of weight. I don't really agree with the type of stuff we're doing but it will start changing soon.

    Weightroom was open today. So I took advantage.

    Explosion bench with blocks-1-3-95 1-3-115 1-1-135
    Skullcrushers-2-8-45 2-8-50
    Tricep pushdowns-3-10-30
    One arm db press-3-15-15
    Wrist curls

    My triceps feel alot stronger, bench feels easier. Diet is pretty good. Been eating some cheat foods, but I can afford to put on some fat. Next workout monday. Over christmas break I'll be forced to train at home. That sucks. Oh well.

    My lower back seems to be getting strong, its kind of hard to progress on sldl with it coming after goodmornings and gluteham raises, however my max on goodmornings went up from 165 I believe it was or somewhere around there to 215. I can't wait to squat thursday I think or maybe tomorrow.

    Well I squated 50 more lbs than my previous best, so thats always good. Try for 315 but just didn't happen. Suppose to do sldl too, but I was fried after squatting. Feel like sleeping for long long time now.

    Box bench is where you put like this wood block on your chest and that is about 3 inches thick and its just like a regular bench but you're suppose to explode the weight off the block. So its a little easier than regular bench.
