Plan Description

Build your running fitness and strength to perform your best on military fitness tests. Start with a run/walk method and gradually build up to a 2 mile run. Strength workouts focus on push-ups and sit-ups first by reps for form, then by time to max out the number of reps you will be able to perform in 2 minutes. Additional bodyweight exercises are included to support balanced strength.
