at boxing we started off our workout with 10 minutes of running to warm up. did various stretch routines, then gloved up.

we did 8 rounds on the bag. 1st round involving different combinations the coach called out, 2nd the same, 3rd round we did ten drills, 4th round we did ten drills, 5th round-6th round we did 26 drills, 7-8th rounds we did 30 second drills. the minute rest bell in between rounds. we do 25 jumping jacks.

finished off with a couple of laps and 100 jumping jacks.

a light workout as the coach had to leave early.

Thank you.

Was your 2 mile run best effort?

No problem, training is about admitting your weaknesses improving on them.

If there's a running club nearby sign up. Don't rely on boxing or yourself to improve your times. Running clubs are awesome way to smash run times. When I first wanted to sign up I was really unfit and joined a running club to help my training. In a few months my fittness hit the roof and now I can do 5 miles in 34 mins. Which I'm not happy about.

All you do in boot camp is push ups, sit ups and pull ups. Just do as many as you can everyday and slowly you'll see the results. Remember, quality not quantity. If you do 50 shitty push up's none will be counted in the fitness tests.

So, sign up for a running club, middle distance. You'll do all kinds of good stuff like 20x200m sprints, 6x3k's, 400m-300m-200m x 6, hill reps and all other kinds of very good training.

been runnin liftin and boxin.

still cannot do a pull up. i cut and blistered my hands trying today.

just got home from the gym its 12:00 at night. i like working out at night more.

did a mile run warm up, then stretched,

did an upper body weight circuit for endurance.

tried to do pull ups.

did a 20 minute interval session on the bike machine. (i.e. started at level 5 for 5 minutes brought it down to level 2, took it to level 7 for 3 minutes, brought it back down to level 2, took it to level 10, then finished off the last minute with a level 3 cool down.)

a light workout i reckon.

Exact numbers, exact times.

Push ups, sit ups, run time, distance and time.

are you just training to get weight off at the moment? with the pull-ups the only thing to do is keep at it, get a bar and just do them as often as possible. monkey bars in kids play grounds are great too as they get your arms used to supporting your weight (but go early in the morning when you run cos you dont wanna look like a nonce do ya!). i'd suggest a good thick,strong rope to climb too, but from what you've said its not going to do you much good at the min. press-ups are like pull-ups, the only way to get good at them is to do them as often as possible. then do some more! i'd also run every day if i was you, you need to get used to pain anyway, and you wont get a day off in the army. stop being soft now, dont wait for them to make you. mix your runs up though so it doesnt get boring, steps, hill sprints etc and train twice a day, every day. but take weekends off, just go for a light swim or if you play any sports, try save it as a weekend activity. walk everywhere, dont drive or use public transport. the army's a great life for the right people. it doesnt matter what regiment/unit. i spent a year in the royal marines but due to a badly busted knee i couldnt complete the commando tests so came out and joined the infantry instead and served for 8 years. enjoy it mate, good luck.

Damn I haven't read this in a while, if I'm going to do the army it will wait till after college now. I was talking to my recruiter and he said that they are on a stand still because they already met their mission and quota of new recruits.

I have plans for college now, then possibly the military.

Thanks for the good luck wish and all the help.

I still think I'm going to join but there is something like a half year to a year and a half wait to get in right now, so I will get my degree while I wait, kill two birds with one stone. At least thats what they told me, because of the economy.

Then again I'm in Michigan with a 15.2% unemployment rate, so it makes since.

My friend has to wait until May to get shipped out from the Marines, and their quota is considerably less than the Army's if I'm not mistaken.

now i got some work ahead of me as i am out of shape and could never do one pull up.

ive started lifting for pull up specific muscles now and will hopefully be able to get at least 6 by mid march.

as far as push ups go the most i can do right now in under two minutes is close to 20-25.

my running time is three miles in 40 minutes but was alot better when i was going to my gym so that will work its way back up.

sit ups arent that much of a problem when im in shape so once i go back to my boxing gym in a couple of weeks that will be no problem i will be posting my workouts for the day hear to keep me motivated on my dream of going airborne in the army and getting my jump wings.

any advice would be greatly appreciated.
The army is changing its APFT (Army Physical Fitness Test) all together again. As it stands now the events are a joke: 2 minutes push ups and sit ups nd a 2 mile timed run. Push ups you must "break the plane". Get in the habit of your chest hitting the ground. I hated the army. HATED it. But it was probably the best thing that ever happened to me. Dont get me wrong its not hard. Right place right time right uniform. Anyway look up "new army pt test" and train for that and well as basic pu/su/ and 2 miles run. When it comes to the run do it on roads. Get used to it. Dont like it dont sign up. Uphill is your best friend. Conquer that and make it easy youll never fall out of a run which means you wont be a "shit bag". Any other questions message me. Im still pretty fresh from the army.
