6'4" 200lbs. I'm a lock/second row. You know how the scrum is loosehead prop = 1, hooker = 2, tighthead prop = 3, .... wing = 14, and fullback = 15. Well I play 4. The one that makes the tunnel. I also jump for lineouts since I'm so tall/skinny. I also kick sometimes since I am ambidexterous in kicking and can hit penalty kicks and conversions lefty from the far right of the field.

I hate Title IX so much. A perfect example of best intentions in theory that are horribly mismanaged and manifest poorly in reality.

Exactly. I like to land directly into the pushup but that gets hard later on.

ON SUPPLEMENTS

Unless you're benching more than your own body weight and squatting atleast 1.5X your body weight, you will get all the protein you need from everyday eating.

I do Olympic lifts from time to time...

As for supplements, the only two I use are Creatine and Glutamine, and those are the only two I would advise anyone to use.

Uh, deadlifts for your back? Unless you call it something else, Deadlifts are mainly for your lower body...

Deadlifts activate more muscle that in any other exercise. I'll assume you have an idea what you're talking about and you know compound exercises will always be better than isolation exercises in weight training- well deadlifts allow your body to start reacting to such a great stimilus by increasing bone density, bone size, connective tissue strength and most importantly, muscle strength.

Yes, tbh I did know that (it's the same reason why I choose to do single leg RDL's), but I would only suggest dead lifting for a lower body workout day. It compliments squatting, so in a typical lift schedule, you'll see a person squatting one week, then dead lifting the next. I'm aware at how much more your body has to be involved while dead lifting (more noticably in the upper back, from stressing your shoulder blades together in order to get into proper form), but in a correct dead lift most of the weight is lifting by legs.

EDIT: Now that I look back at your post, I realize that you actually giving him a workout plan. I thought you were suggesting exercises to put in a normal workout, not a plan itself. In that case, I can see where deadlifting would fit in. Apologies.
