“My son is 15, plays high school football and only weighs 155 lbs. He wants to put on weight to get bigger, faster, stronger. Can you help?”
These are the types of questions that I receive regularly from Moms. I’ve been hearing more and more from Moms. They have sons who are in 8th, 9th, 10th grade and have become interested in getting bigger and stronger for high school football. They want to gain weight.
You’ll learn my exact methods for taking one of my high school football players from a beginning weight of 162lbs as a sophomore to a 205lb senior linebacker starting for the Texas State 5a Champions, Cedar Park Timberwolves. He’s increased his bench press by 155lbs (currently 360lbs), his squat by 195lbs (currently 515lbs), his power clean by 95lbs (currently 300lbs) and his deadlift by 100lbs (currently 420lbs). He is currently the strongest football player of all time at Cedar Park High School. I’ll outline the exact steps that I used (and am still using) with him along with the other football players that I work with.
Another client started working with me in July 2017. In less than 3 months, he’s gained 16lbs of weight and added 22lbs to his bench press. As a sophomore, he’s now a starting linebacker for the high school football team. Other than perhaps adding protein powder and/or protein bars, I do not recommend supplements. No creatine or other potentially harmful supplements. Just food.
As I strive to strengthen my skills as an effective strength coach, one of my goals is to simplify the weight gain process for high school athletes. The bottom line is that I want to help you, Mom, do this in the most efficient way and in the shortest period of time. When you have your own training, health and strength on the line as I do, you tend to give a lot more effort, time and care into designing a weight gain program that works.
If you don’t have a well thought out, consistent action plan, weight gain will be difficult if impossible. But with a plan and a little bit of strategy, gaining weight is simply the process of consistent, methodical effort. I know that having enough time is a challenge for busy Moms. I work from home and we have 4 boys so I understand how important time is, so with my wife’s nudging, I took the process that I use with my weight gain clients (high school football players) and created this book for busy Mom’s like you.
If you’re looking for an encyclopedia with fluff and filler, this is NOT it! If you’re looking to invest about 1 hour of your valuable time then this book is definitely for you. Imagine the look on your athletes face when he FINALLY starts seeing his weight on the scale go up!
