I've been out of the gym 2 weeks now. My mentality getting closer to the end is to focus on bodyweight training that I'd be tested on as well as what would be expected once at the academy.
I do miss the gym. I figured I'd keep away to eliminate any risk for injury or soreness that might last longer than expected depending on how hard I hit it that day.
I work out in the mornings before work. I get off work by 8 pm, then either try to relax after eating dinner by 9 or I do some school work..
For pushups I recover pretty quickly. i'm actually looking to start doing them daily now, slightly changing the intensity so that I can do them daily in hopes to progress my max count and endurance.
Running this week so far I did 2 rounds of sprints after my 1.5 miles run in 13 minutes. That actually gave me a good amount of soreness in my pelvic region, so that took 2 days to recover from.. Now I know I have to go about incorporating sprints differently.
During my initial test I hit 47 pushups within 1 minute. I notice now I went from doing 44 max first set to today 35.. Kind of bothered me. Maybe I was a bit more tired, not too sure but hitting my max is a bit challenging again..
My goal is to work up to 50+ max in 1 minutes. I have a lot of work to do ab wise to continue strengthening and gaining endurance. I can hit 29-30 in 1 minute right now.
My next test is the following:
220 yard sprint
1.5 mile run
So I'm focusing on this right now not knowing when I will get that email advising me to schedule this. Could happen any day now..
I was thinking for pushups doing 150 a day, 15 sets of 10 something along those lines.. I did that Monday and recovered fine. Wasn't too difficult to hit. OR doing pyramids 10 down to 1 and maybe in reverse as well. .
