Any Health/Fitness Nuts? Help
I am graduating this semester. The State Police are opening hiring season again, and I have let myself get a bit out of shape.
I am not terribly so, but worse off them I was in High School.
I weigh 198 and am 6 foot even.
I was considering P-90X, as I did it in High School, and got great results, but I do not have the room.
Wondering what could be recommended as a ruetine to build sterngth, and stamina.
I plan to run about 3 mile stretch (It is a loop that has a steep uphill, an slight down hill, and strait away, then follows into a steep downshill which levels out into a slight increase and is flat again, until I need to get back to my house which is a very steep up) every day starting on Monday, as I just ordered so better weather gear and it arrives on Monday.
I have forgotten most of the stretching techniques, and don't have access to anything other then my Bowflex which I put back together this afternoon.
I have the poster, and was considering just mimicking what the poster people do.
I have small space, and limited resources at the moment.
I do have access to a gym, but it is crowed with all the other college kids on campus.
I was hoping some of you could give me some no male bovine excrement guidance, that is better then what you can find in those washed out Mens Health, Fitness Now, etc etc magazines.
Thanks a bunch.
By goals to meet are a mile and a half in 12 minutes, 40 sit-ups in 1 minute and 33 push-ups in 1 minute.
I got up to 16 push ups in the first 30 seconds, and then my arms died, and I could not lift myself anymore.
As for the sit-ups, I could not complete more then 5 sit-ups without having something to brace my feet with.
I was unable to provide a base line for running the mile and a half due to the weather today.
