If you are looking to put size on try a program called P90X. The program is very intense and even caters towards athletics. Cuation, this program is extreme but works wonders…I started at 175 lbs and 22% body fat at 5’″ at 26yrs old and know down to 17% body fat after only 3 months. They even suggest what foods to eat and how much depending on what you want to do. The programs are brole down into toning, weight lose, and building muscle mass. The program is a little high priced but real worth it. I take creatine with my workout and seemed to do wonders. As far as speciallized workout for football, I have a very close friend who has been a varsity coach for 10+ years and said he has never seen anything like this program…….he started making his players do it in the off season and plans to set something up for summer workouts…..trust me, this program will give you great results!!!
I’ll be very honest here. There is nothing fancy about post workout nutrition. Simply mix some whey protein, maltodextrin (and / or dextrose), kool aid, with some plain creatine and you’ll be experiencing amazing results at a fraction of the price of retail supplements. Simply go to your local bulk food store to pick up these ingredients. If you're interested in making your own supplements, try downloading Jeff Anderson’s book “ Home Made Supplement Secrets ”. Jeff has 27 knock off recipes from some of the top supplement companies such as Muscle Tech, BSN, Cytosport, and a bunch of others. Take a look at my review of this book at:
Numerous clinical trials proved the effectiveness of Anabolic HALO MuscleTech and its ability to stimulate muscle growth. The scientists’ team used the study of the University of Connecticut and came to the discovery: how to most effectively use the active testosterone without the negative consequences. Research lasted for 21 days. It showed that the construction component of Anabolic HALO drug greatly increased the number of non-receptor as compared to the group which used placebo. In the next study, the researchers observed a powerful anabolic supplement. This supplement greatly increased the number of cells in muscle more than 100% in 28 days! The same component allowed to increase the muscle to % in the 16 weeks! In other studies, researchers from the University of Texas Medical Center examined the change ATF-4. ATF-4 was described as anabolic component that plays a major role in hormonal regulation of anabolism process.
