    hey guys, i'm 22, 5'7" and at 140lbs, i've never really done any weight training but i would really like to start...i'm kinda in shape at the moment, i like to run a lot, i do anywhere from 10-15 miles a week...i know it's a long shot but i'm kinda hoping to have the build of a running back or something close...

    also, what kind of supplements are good for someone starting out? i'm a full time college student so I can't always eat healthy (or eat at all :( )

    thanks guys!

    That won't cut it, and it's also not true. A good tupperware set is your best friend. I'm a full-time college student and it can work.

    Yeah, focus on speed exercises if you want to be or look like a running back.

    I'd recommend hills or incline treadmill training for the speed, and wind sprints for endurance. If you have access to resistance bands and someone to help you, you can do that as well. That's for the running part, I'll let someone more knowledgable on the weights advise you there.
