In regards to this article and thread:
I've been training a good while now and have made it to the Level 2. A bit smaller but I think a bit more defined than the photo but definitely in Level 2. I'm looking for what I can do to get to that Level 3.
I work a lot and live in a 3rd world country as a volunteer. So my funds, gym time, and ability to get supplements or equipment is very restricted. So far I haven't taken a single supplement including multi-vitamins.
I get to the gym about 2 times a week, 3 when I have time but its very rare.
I'm doing this yes to push myself to better physical shape but also because when I'm finished volunteering I plan to apply for Marine Corps OCC. I run about 2 miles, 3 times a week at OCS Pace (6min miles) and then a lighter 30-40minute run once a week.
I don't have access to anything for pull-ups but I try to do a good number of push-ups every morning. Currently I'm doing 10 Ballistic Push-ups followed by 60 regular pushups broken down (20, 15, 10, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1). In the morning and then at night one set of max push-ups.
Any advice would be great, is getting from level 2 to 3 mostly dietary, more cardio, heavier lifting? What's gonna get my physique to that next level.
