I am working with a 15yr old high school kid who plays football. I have not worked with a person this young. He is presently 6-1 at 245lbs a soft 245lbs. His father is conviced that I need to work with his son on his chest. He does have strong legs but no upper body strength. His father has him doing 35 reps for 2 sets! Somebody tell me a good,safe workout program for somebody his age. He has no stamina at all.

LOL...this seems funny, You've been asked to train someone and you are questioning how to train him..haha... I hope you have some insight on weightlifting, so that he doesn't get injured when he goes.. This sounds bad but have you ever heard of the blind leading the blind?
Go with core exercises:
You should bring his dad with him and teach him a thing or two because he sounds like he is not familiar with any type of strength training..
2 sets of 35 reps is pointless for any exercise

Ha ha! You are a funny guy! I was looking for some advice in traing an "out of shape" 15 year old. I have not worked with anybody this young, as I said in my post.

At his age, it's fine to start him weight training, but you need to focus on form and safety first. Teach him the right form now so he won't have nagging injuries etc as he continues to grow.
I would also definitely focus on the major strength movements like monster recommended. He needs to build his core strength for football, plus it will give him a better base for advanced training as he gets older IMO.

What would help is if you had some feedback as far as a routine that you thought of, but your shooting in the dark asking board members for ideas.. Show us a routine, something that you thought would be good, and we all will try to narrow down the good and bad ideas..
I'll keep on humoring myself untill you come correct
good luck bro
