    Been doing 100 push ups + and 50 sit ups for a few months everyday now plus i just started doing weights and i dnt want it all to goto wast now do i.

    Iv look around on the net, but i just cant find it. i know the marines require you to be atleast 9st 6lb's. Any help would be greatly apprectiated on this subject.
