Diet and Exercise Routine

Allright people, spit it out. I'm preparing myself for Air Force basic training and would love to hear some of your guys and gals daily exercise routine along with some healthy diets. I don't care if its as simple as your favorite healthy snack, every bit helps. I am doing my daily push-ups but I'v been sick for about a week now, so once i'm beter I'll be back at the gym with more cardio and weight training.-Thanks

Re: Diet and Exercise Routine

I do have to admit I am horrible when it comes to drinking water. I am never properly hydrated.

Re: Diet and Exercise Routine

i would say since you are simply preparing for military type of training that you should start with a similar type of training right now. lots of bodyweight type of exercises. push ups, pull ups, squats, sprints, hill climbs, long distance running, crunches, hanging leg raises, maybe invest in one barbell to do some olympic style lifts as well.

keep your diet clean and simple, oatmeal, brown rice, red potatoes, whole grain pasta or breads, chicken, fish, lean beef, almonds, water.

Re: Diet and Exercise Routine

Step 1: Grip beer bottle
Step 2: Lift to lips
Step 3: Long sip
Step 4: Reverse 1-3
Step 5: Repeat as needed

Oh, but in all seriousness, water + lots of cardio sounds pretty good to me! Spot of pasta and peanut butter (not together, duh) also sounds good not to mention tasty

Run. If you're not used to running, start running. That will help you the most.

Re: Diet and Exercise Routine

For Chairforce PT, make sure you can walk at least 1/4 mile, do 5 pushups, 10 sit-ups and tie your own shoes.

Now for Army or Marine Corps basic and PT prep...might want to be more prepared then that.

In seriousness, start working on running, that is the most important. Work up slowly, but get to a point where you can run at least 2 miles in less then 16 minutes. Try doing 2-3 mile runs 3-4 times a week with at least a day of rest in between. If you have the stones for it, once you get in some better shape start doing those runs with 20-30lbs in a comfortable pack on your back.

Start doing pushups, situps and if you have it general light weight lifting. Not sure of requirements, your likely to need to do at least 50 form perfect push-ups and 100 sit-ups. Given a few months of moderate lifting that should be no problem. I am easily knocking out 60 push-ups, 100 crunches and 30 sit-ups (in a row, no rest in between the sets). If pushed I can do 75 push-ups, 150 crunches and 60 sit-ups...though I might have problems getting out of bed the next morning, especially if I did more then 1 set of those.

Chin-ups/pull-ups are also good to work on shoulder and biceps.

Oh, and if you are at all over weight, start cutting out sweets and deserts right now. Throw in a nice big salad with dinner and in general plan to cut down on your weight. Better to start doing it now then dealing with the kind of burn your going to have in the first few weeks of basic if you enter out of shape and over weight.

Working out will only help it go away sooner.
