The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    exactly...

    Go for endurance

    Strength training helps but endurance is key with any sort of military pt.

    PST are based on
    -Speed over a distance (1.5 miles in ?? minutes and ?? seconds )

    -Or the amount in a pre-determined amount of time ( ?? pushups in 2 minutes timed )

    Get your cardio up to speed. They run the crap out of you in boot camp.

    And good luck sailor!

    Thanks for serving!

    As others here have said, BC is all about endurance. Chins, push-ups, sit-ups and run. Doesnt get more basic.

    But also do resistance exercises with similar movements to excel at them more quickly.
    Out of the night that covers me,Black as the Pit from pole to pole,I thank whatever gods may be for my unconquerable soul. In The fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance my head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears looms but the horror of the shade And yet the menace of the years finds, and shall find, me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate how charged with punishments the scroll,I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.

    I know a kid in boot camp. Or training, whatever.

    He can do about 200 push ups. Not kidding...

    Sit ups, well he has a six-pack.

    Running? He can run a 6 minute mile.

    RUN/Pushups/Situps.
    Everything is for me.

    What they said about run/pushup/situp. Can you swim? Work on that, too. Talk to your recruiter. He wants you to be successful and will help you hit the ground running (no pun intended).

    in my opinion, push-ups and flutter kicks should be primary focus with some time spent on pull ups and running.

    You say you want to be the best, but don't go there trying to rock everybody's world and show everyone that you're in better shape than them. The strength of our nation's military is not physical fitness or technology, it's teamwork.

    I got a question. I'll be leaving in the Army at the end of 2009, and I know R.I.P., they lose about 30 pounds. Right now i'm 165 or so and I want to bulk as much as I can, hopefully around 190 by the time I graduate which is July 08. Then untill the time I enlist by 09 september i'll be cutting and focusing endurance stuff. Sound good?
