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.

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?

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

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.

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 . . .
