Hey all, I have suffered from a rather embarrassing illness (which also saw me hospitalized for a while) for almost 6 weeks now and basically in 2 weeks I have the Board malarky in which to prove my press-up/sit-up/run fitness. I have lost a substantial amount of upper body endurance. My recruiter has offered to postpone it, but to be honest I'm tired of waiting for this life, to be frank - I want it asap. My press-ups (when done in proper form anyway) are down to 19-20 continuous motion. My sit-ups are not much of a concern (comparitively) to be honest, but it makes sense to train them on alternate days; so here is my "regime". Day 1 ------- 2 * 1.5mile Best effort - morning and evening Press-ups to failure, probably 4 sets with around 2 mins of recovery time between each. Tri-dips to failure, probably 3 sets. Chins and pulls to failure, 4 sets each. Day 2 ------- 5 miles 'slow and steady' A core circuit - sits/crunches/other crunch variants and some lower back stuff such as dorsals and angels. 20 of each, 5 sets. Day 3 ------- 3 miles at a steady pace; a shade under 8 mins/mile Resistance training same as day 1 Day 4 ------- Same as day 2 Day 5 ------- Same as 3 Day 6 ------- 1.5 mile BE * 2 and some swimming Day 7 ------- Rest day. Repeat again for the next week... then it's on. I realise there is more 'tricep' training there than sit-up training, but like I say, I'm not too concerned about sit-ups. Should I do more? Or even less? I seriously don't want to overdo it, but I must come out happy with myself. I don't really care what the minimum requirements are at the end of the day, so long as I'm pleased with what I achieve, which I'd hope would be somewhat above the mins. My 1.5 is at around an unimpressive 10:40 now.. I know that on the day I will do better than this and I hope these 2 weeks can go some way to at least helping my aerobic fitness/recovery. Thanks for any advice/critique.
