The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

    Army PT+Weights

    Hello everyone, i was wondering what would be a good workout to build muscle and mass while improving my PT at the same time. Im a 13 Bravo which requires me to a lot of heavy lifting so gaining muscle and mass will help with my job but at the same time I still want to maintain the high PT score that I have. I have currently purchases Maximus, ETS, and a productive called "Full Force" from www.focusintesity.com Im thinking of using this ranger workout, would it be appropriate or what modifications would you recommend i make to the program, or should i just scratch it all together.

    Crossfit
    End of story.


    There's a workout of the day (WOD) on the main page. Just do it. Also, read the FAQ and "What is Crossfit" links before you ask a whole bunch of questions because just about all your questions can be found there, including substitutions for exercises that you can't do, either because of equipment or ability.
    I've been lifting for 20 years. Last year I started crossfit. It rocks. You WILL be in awesome shape.

    Heavy lifting in Artillery? =D

    How to improve sit-ups? Squats and Deadlifts. How to improve push-ups? Bench press. How to improve run time? HIIT, Sprints, CrossFit and running.

    My SU and PU's go up every APFT from the Big Three without doing ANY inbetween except for a timed 2 min. set here and there to gauge my performance.
