    .

    -i wake up really early to do speed work to improve my sprints/increase my dribble speed which will burn a lot of calories. would the protein shakes before and after replace the lost calories?

    -should i use lower weights to improve my form because i've never benched properly before :rolleyes:




    thanks everyone.
    I dont understand why you want more muscle to play football? But yes you should drop the weight to one which you can do a good set with good form and build up from there, have protein shakes after your workouts and if you are quite serious about building your strength I also take creatine..my bench has gone up 30 kg since i started taking it (about 6 months ago) but I cant really say if that is the creatine..seems to help though

    I'm quicker, stronger, can go longer and jump higher since I started training and I'm 12kg heavier.

    Don't listen to any women that say you're fine as you are, especially the ones on TSR, they like skinny guys. Also, people telling you that you're ok as you are won't help you progress.

    You have a good body to begin with, but you can be better.

    6-7 medium sized meals a day (especially as you're losing so many cals doing sport) + heavy weight session 3 times a week for approx 45 mins. Realistically a cycle of pinkies wont hurt either, but that road isn't for everyone :rolleyes:

    ETA: Lighter weight will only serve to carve you.
