Copied my post from another group for maximum exposure and assistance!!!
Well its happened...got fat again!!!
Always had trouble with weight management and did an awesome job, with the help of the police academy, dropping 40 pounds and keeping it off for over a year back in 2006. Came back on Active duty in Feb 2007 weighing 218 at 73 inches and 19% BF. Broke my leg on a Garrison Operation in Dec 2007 and was in a cast for 12 weeks. Let things slide and really did not, could not PT then.
Got put in a walking boot for 12 more weeks and then off o three months of physical therapy. Now I have never been a PT stud by any means and still have some issues with my affected limb. That having been said I was an E-5 reservist before coming back to active duty and being reduced to SPC for some reason (only DA & HRC know). Dealt with it and here I am promotion board eligible, but overweight, over fat by 7 percent (31% BF to be exact, but I am 31) and serious lacking in PT.
We are deploying to OEF in the Winter and will be walking to Mountains of Afghanistan. I DO NOT WANT TO DIE DUE TO MY LACK OF PREPARATION!!!
I am a pretty visual learner and love the Army and serving my country. I want to stay in for my 20 or more this time and re-enlist when my window opens in June 2009. Can any one point in the direction of a solid fitness program to help me MAX my P/U...S/U...and pretty damn close to my run before we leave. I would also at the least like to come back from OEF an E-5, if not leave Ft. Bragg as one.
Any help anyone can offer would be appreciated! I do not want to let myself, my wife, my son, or my Unit down by not being prepared!
All the Way!!!!
