Need to prepare physically for Basic Training

If I were you, I would try to find a local running store, or even go to a local high school's cross country/track coach and they will be able to help you create a workout plan that will fit specifically for you. Some people can start out running for the first time and not have much trouble with 4-5 miles while others aren't the same. But if anything,make sure you start out easy and slowly build up.

Just continue with push-ups on a daily basis. Try to do 5 good ones today. 6 tomorrow and so on. Also, upper body exercises will help you improve on upper-body strength.

With cardio; just run, run and run. Obviously do it moderately without injury put persistence is the key.

Really the best thing to do is do them. If you are able to, do them multiple times throughout your day or at the very minimum at night before you get ready to go to bed. For start try 1 to 5 push-ups every hour or however many times you can during the day then do as many as you can before going to bed. This last one of the day should go until you physically cannot do anymore/have trouble getting up from the floor.

Same thing for sit-ups/curls and pull-ups. As you get better, increase your repetitions to 10-20-30 etc. depending on how you are doing with each 'event'.

Don't forget a 2-mile run even if you are good at short distances. Control your breathing and go the distance. Get good at that? Go 4-6 miles, do sprints and run hills to improve this highly cardiovascular event. You get what you put into training.

And if you honestly still can't do pushups, try doing them on your knees- still keep your body from knees to shoulders straight. Bend the elbows to lower yourself, raise back up.

Keep working at them until you can do them "regular".


Be Proud of what you do- and do it Well! ~me
