I posted awhile back about joining a gym and so on, but life and lack of motivation kind of stopped me from achieving that. But now I'm actually in one, and have a mad Ukrainian Ice Hockey player to egg me on, I see good things coming.
I have some simple questions. At the moment, I'm pretty much at the verge of being very unfit. We are still in the early stages of training, sort of the pre training, to the real program, and I'm being pushed quite abit,but feeling good.
But heres the thing, when I'm doing this "pre training" segment, I work and my arms are aching, in pain, but then when I start doing push ups and so on, I reach a point where I simply can't raise myself, but can hold. Its frustating.
But yeah, my goal is by June/July to be able to pass a basic Military Selection fitness test with ease. You guys think that is a reasonable?
In addition to gyming 4 times a week, I'm cutting out all junk food, drinking just water, and planning to start running and paintball again. When I'm fit enough I also intend to start more physical hobbies.
After doing nothing during the whole winter, my basic total score was maybe 150. After one week of everyday running and exercising I reached 181 and today achieved score of 205. Since I am 36, I am easily in the top category

Riddle me this running nerds, what is the actual difference between running on a treadmill, verses running on dirt? There is a school of thought that it is only the lack of wind resistance that makes it easier. Another that the track moving under you decreases the effort required.
