Just come push my car around a few miles. I just got done doing it, and I'm soaked to the skin. Pushing a car, backwards, 2 miles, down a dirt road. Solo. I haven't sweated this much in years.

I bet your back and legs feel awesome! Did some handstand push ups today...the hardest part is not passing out after a couple from the blood rush to your head. :laugh:

Im finally healed up enough to start training again...

Im going into the Marines, like headshot. Today I maxed on pullups, 10 it was embarrasing, did 3 sets of 15 pushups then went for a run/hike. I did about 4 miles in around 45 minutes. The terrain is really rough there was prob about half a mile of it that was flat. I got a pretty good workout in, ill probably go lift weights later today.

I havent done any sort of physical activity in over 6 months, except 1 game of pickup basketball and a game of capture the flag. Im not too mad but in the next two weeks I hope to be in much better shape. Im working on loosing the little gut I got and bring the definition back in my muscles.

Told you. My entire jaw went numb, lol. I was like woah I'm done with those. And good choice Teddy, way to make a real man's decision. :D Running will be your most important thing man. While pull ups will get you the best PFT for the effort as they're worth 5 points a piece, and abs will be a free 100 after boot camp, but running takes real work. Its easy to work your back and biceps until failure. Training your lungs and legs that hard is much more difficult. Don't worry, you'll be at 20 in 3 months if you keep it up. Just make sure you're doing them right. Plus nothing displays overall fitness like being able to run like Forrest Gump.

Back when I was playing football I was in great shape I had exceeded a perfect pft, I really should have gone into boot right out of high school it woulda been easy haha its hard working back into it.

Im going to do that armstrong pullup workout for a week starting monday last time I did that it brought me up 9 pullups in a week and I could do pushups forever.

What are you planning on doing in the Marines?

Screw Armstrong. Do a max set of pull ups, and multiply that number by 10. Now continue until you do that many pull ups in as few sets as possible. Repeat every other day unless you feel you need an extra off. Do the same thing with push ups on the other days. And I want to be an Infantry Platoon Commander (Infantry Officer) and go MARSOC. Oh yea I got my first runner's high today...I realized it's just a release of adrenaline. I'd like to thank paintball for helping me hone my ability to control the flow of it in my bloodstream. :)

The armstrong system works well if you actually do it, and can deal with being ridiculously sore for a few days.

Today I ran 3 miles plus about the 3/4 or so mile job to the canyon...it felt good but running with sore arms is annoying as FRAG. Ive never been a fan of using supplements but ive been considering taking something for 2-4 weeks to jumpstart my body and get more of my muscle back. I havent been this out of shape since I was in 8th grade haha Does anyone have much experience with stuff like that, im thinking something like creablast? The most ive ever taken was muscle milk after morning workouts but that wasnt on a regular basis or meant for anything else than a meal substitute..

Goodluck getting infantry officer, even more luck getting into MARSOC haha

Creatine just makes your muscles retain water, it doesn't actually build muscle. If you are going to take a protein supplement, make sure you drink a lot of water with it. Unless you are doing a lot of serious body building, you probably get enough protein without needing to supplement your diet.

I ran my first sub 13:00 2-mile today, with a lot of hills :P

Creatine also boosts your recovery time during workouts because the increase in water helps remove lactic acid. I don't notice much difference, but I take Superpump 250 when I can buy it just because it gives me a lot of energy so I feel like working out. For the protein, its definitely necessary. If you're trying to add muscle mass you're going to need 1.5-2 grams per lb of body weight a day. And with the Armstrong Pull Up program, it makes things a lot more complicated than it needs to be. Its pretty simple...the more you do pull ups, the better you'll get. Its the same principle with anything you want to change with your body....except stopping bullets with your face....:D

...I think the pack runs screwed up my ankles....I did some research and apparently you aren't supposed to run with a pack because the way it is distributed can mess up your joints...figures...:rolleyes:

I downloaded p90x...

Its a pretty sweet system, 12 workouts of like 60-90 minutes...it was pretty hard as well.

I liked how I didnt need to go to the gym either since I hate working out in the gym unless its empty...and I also no longer have a gym membership haha

Even if you are paying for it, it comes out to $1.75 a day plus dumbells which is pretty damn cheap. My plan is to do the workout for a month and see where im at. Then unless I just haven't moved anywhere im going to start alternating between running and doing one of the workouts.

Starting a serious fitness plan Monday. Alternating Heavy compound exercises one day, High Intensity Interval Training the next. 10 minutes of HIIT is more effective than a half hour of moderate cardio, and Heavy Compound Exercises (Stiff Leg Deadlifts, Squats, weighted pull ups, etc) develop more strength and muscle than normal free weight lifting. And release a FRAGing ton of testosterone.

Even better, no workout will be longer than 50 minutes. After that muscular catabolization exceeds your bodies ability to repair. So at an hour your body is killing muscle faster than you can fix it. Will take more than a day to recover.

So. Whoo! Now for some nutrition work . . .
