Training in earnest has begun.
Well I have tried to get my crap in one bag for awhile but have allowed any number of things to sidetrack me and used them as excuses. I have been going to the gym for a couple of weeks now and following through. So here is where I am now. What are realistic expectations for Jan 06, 2008 (don't ask)?
Height 5ft 8in
Current Weight 163
Body Fat 17.2 (disgusting)
I have been working with a trainer and am focused on overall strength and endurance; size is of no concern to me. My diet has greatly improved over the past few weeks as well. Drinking a gallon of water a day, no sodas of anykind, sugar free Red Bulls for the mornings, lots of chicken, smoothies for breakfast, chicken for lunch, and chicken for dinner (steak once a week).
Current 3mile runtime is 24:00 (give or take 30sec).
Current max pullups is 5 (disgusting).
Current max crunches in 2min, 100 (I used to finish before the 1:30 mark).
That is what a Marine Corps PFT consists of, I would like to have this improve greatly. If the Marine Corps considers those events as a good test of overall fitness that is good enough for me.
Any tips pointers etc would be great. I know I need to supplement as I am very picky and don't eat green vegetables hardly ever. I do have fish from time to time but am being told that I should supplement fish oils or some shit like that.
