Maintaining foot speed is a challenge while bulking, quick weight gain multiplies force applied to underdeveloped tendons/ligaments, which can cumulatively lead to injury/downtime.However, if you are methodical/patient and cycle winter bulk diet and training with a spring maturation and strength training cycle, you cover all the required leg tendon/ligament/muscle structural needs and avoid common injuries such as, Quad/Hamstring tear, ACL/MCL strain/sprain/rupture not to mention the less common but more severe Achilles injuries. Most athletes will experience strains and sprains on a regular basis and just work through them, the scar tissue builds up, aids inflammation and inevitably decreases their performance on the field.
You are spot on. He is at one of the top OC football programs that has a legit weight trainer and nutritionist. Cycle appropriately. Just keeping him on track is the challenge. Forgot how stubborn and dumb 16 was.
