Hi T-Nation! I was a member about 8 years ago and life issues got me out of working out and the community in general. I'm turning 32 and trying to get back into a good exercise regimen, but I'm not sure that I'm ready to get back into the gym. Right now I'm following a Navy Seal program and for those of you familiar with the program I'm on week six. Those unfamiliar it looks something like this (I don't remember the running regimine exactly).
- 6 sets of 30 pushups
- 6 sets of 30 situps
- 3 sets of 10 chinup
Running 4 days a week for a total of 12 miles (I think)
I've been having issues with fatigue an just general tiredness and have been having issues just working up the energy to exercise. I've been to the doctor and had some different procedures that found no problems and she found that I am getting sufficient sleep (6-7 hours). I did get an inhaler for asthama.
I make sure to take a multi-vitamin and B-complex and my diet includes fruit (mainly apples) I haven't been overly diligent in tracking my calories but I'd say that fall between 2k and 3k. I'm 5'11'' at 212lbs. My fitness goal is to improve core strength and lose body fat.
Basically I'm looking for any dietary support in helping to combat fatigue and improve my energy level. Also, are there any program like the Navy Seal program that might be better. Right now I don't have access to weights so that is why I'm focusing on body weight exercise.
