First I wanna say thanks for all the great contributions. I’ve done well on your programs and have recommended them to my friends, who’ve also had great success.
My father is in the military and has asked me to devise a program using weight training that will improve his PFT scores. He is basically looking for endurance gains and any strength gains and hypertrophy will be icing on the cake. I also have a friend who will be leaving for boot camp soon, and I’d like to take this opportunity to help him get ready.
Obviously, endurance will be key to doing well on the PFT. I think a good approach would be to weight train 3 times per week, full body workouts. Which should allow for alot of distance running on off days. Also, taking one full day off per week.
As for the weight training part, I’m thinking 2 endurance training days and 1 max. strength day per week. All of these being full body workouts.
Do you have any recommendations for a layout like this? Or, is this just stupid and I need to re think it altogether?
Sorry this question isn’t specific but I’m trying to incorporate your ideas (which might save you some work) and use this opportunity for recommendations.
My SOB Program would work perfectly.
