My football season ended a week ago, so I took a small break, but now I'm doing some off-season training. I do p 90x (legs and back is the cornerstone of my routine, along with some chest and triceps, ploy metrics and core synergistics) and/or insanity 3 days a week, along with two hours of hockey every week, and about 45 min of walking on week days, and then some other miscellaneous stuff(fitness unit in p.e, etc), along with 1, one hour personal training session on most weeks, and usually an interval training coarse on my cross trainer once a week. Is this enough training to have me be prepared for football ( i play running back, and middle linebacker) and how many carbohydrates and calories do I need for my training
I'm 5'5 120 pounds, and 13 years old with 11-12 percent body fat

#1 - Do not take any advice from this site unless you yourself have cross-checked the info. There are many conflicting, sometimes confusing, answers.
# 2 - It sounds like you are training in the pros. How do you feel at the end of the day, or better yet, in the morning? As a teacher I've seen the burn-out happen a lot with students who over-train. I've done it myself with marathon running. Take some breaks. Does your trainer have rest/recovery time built in?
# 3 - at your age and with your schedule you should be eating unlimited numbers of calories. Forget body fat and weight. Your positions are dictated by power and speed. Eat enough protein for muscle recovery and adolescent growth. Prob. 80 grams. Carbs should be non-grain starches, of course, and should be eaten until satisfied. Sweet potatoes, a little rice, carbs from whole milk, full fat yogurt. Fat should be of the naturally occurring kind found in your foods, as well as EFA's. a good quality fish oil supplement is a must.
#4 - make sure you are chilling out regularly.
# 5 - this is all IMHO. Remember to cross check.

I think 30mg carbs are quite enough for getting high quality training. but somes times our body needs more then we use supplements, like i do http://www.extremerushnitricadvice.com/ i use Extreme Rush Nitric Oxide Booster for that purpose. I m doing some weight training.
