I am 5'8 10th grade 180 pounds African American.... I started to workout over the summer and I began to lose weight and build muscle .....I am a sporty person I play middle linebacker in football I can also throw the ball and im quick on my feet but im not fast overall....I know that quarterbacks are tall.. defense usually are tall also... so I realize that most running backs are 5"10 5"11 in nfl and ncaa ....so now I wanna play running back because I realize I have a good shot with my work habits....I also notices that ever since I was little I have had huge thighs....so I was going to put that to an advantage ... I bench press 165 and squat 315 yes 315 and I could go higher...so WITH THAT INFORMATION I WANNA KNOW WHAT AREAS SHOULD I TARGET TO PLAY RUNNING BACK and also for speed I was looking into my lower abs workout for more contraction when running....I also notice when working out I have trouble lifting thighs with lower abs .....im already a little fast for my size though

By "clean size" I think he means you will put size on but won't actually make you feel heavier, so you won't lose speed. Explosive workouts should be your main thing, so if you were squatting try lowing down slow and shooting up fast as possible. Footwork ladder drills will help and if you don't know any there are videos on YouTube.

I just talked to the starting running back for the university of new mexico and he says his max for bench is 415. He is squatting 550. He is powercleaning 275. And he is dead lifting 500lbs. Keep up the good work.
