Since im joining the Army im going to have to end up preparing a few months beforehand. Im thinking May is good, since im leaving july 27th.
Im going to start doing alot of running, problably twice a day, and a little routine I picked up off a guy whos joining special forces.
He said do 100 pull-ups, 200 push-ups, 300 sit-ups, and 400 squats. 10 sets of the According amount(10x10,10x20, and so on.)
Its a no break workout. Once I finish a set of one exercise, or I cannot do anymore of one, I immediately move on to the next one. I have no doubts this will be a great routine to build my body up to what It needs, with the running–of course.
What is bothering me, though, is the fact that maybe I should stop lifting throughought this. I asked a powerlifter and he said I should–but it bugs me so much I figured id ask you guys. Id love to maybe do a 2day a week routine along with this setup. Something like this:
Mon: Army Workout
Tue: Army Workout
Wed: Army Workout
Thu: Army Workout
Fri: Upper Body Lift
Sat: Lower Body Lift
Do you guys think that would be beneficial in any way, or maybe have an idea of your own? Let me know.
Otherwise if i just stick to the army workout it would be 6 days a week, 1 day rest.
Anyone have any ideas?
