    Impressive stuff Goat, how long you've been training for? And what stats did you start at?

    this happened to one our linemen my senior year, he was a class below us and really got a lot stronger and put on a good amount of weight for his size but his BP was through the roof apparently and he didn't play the whole year...hopefully it doesn't happen to you

    Started lifting in June of last year. Starting lifts were a 250 squat, 210 bench, and 315 deadlift. Messed around with 3x10 for a while before I actually learned things.

    The whole physical thing got resolved much more quickly than I had imagined. My mom let me get another physical from a different source and the only point of contention was my blood pressure.

    Sadly, a few hours after that, I screwed my knee up squatting. Third time this has happened. It goes away in a week/week and a half. It seems I pretty much just jump from minor injury to minor injury.

    So I suggested a change in programming to the coach who handles the powerlifting/football workouts at our school and further mentioned that we should move to the Starting Strength workout. He listened and agreed. So, now we may have a whole football team of Starting Strength converts. Just maybe.

    Moving to power movements for clean and snatch because I don't want to do anything too violent with my knee like this.
