Well I'm new here, and I noticed this place for excercises and I am a cadet of the Air Force Junior ROTC, and at the next month I will be going to SLS or Summer Leadership School for JROTC cadets, which is pretty much a 5 day boot camp, and I was wondering if someone could help me to find a program to condition and train myself so I will be ready for this. I prefer Military advice because this is a type of military event, but anyone who can help will really be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.
Need Some Help
It sounds like you need a tailored workout to be honest and the gym can be ur friend here. A fitness instructor will be able to come up with a routine that would be suited to what your needs are.
Generally speaking you will want do do some weight training but you will also want to do a lot of cardio work like running. The ideal running would be one with a backpack on your back as to simulate having heavy equiptment on your back.
Its difficult to recomend anything without more information on you, age, height, weight etc and what kinda weight you can currently lift or how far you can run etc as there is nothing to build on.
But generally, weights and cardio = win.
ah I see, well about the whole age and weight thing I make it a prime thing for security not to mention those things online. All I can tell you is that the AFJROTC program is a High School program. The backpack thing sounds good and I've considered buying a 20 lb conditioning vest after I get back from Hill Air Force Base, I'm leaving tomorrow and coming home Sunday. Anyway thanks, we just got a community center not to long ago and they have a gym, I haven't looked at it yet but I'll have to check it out later.
@ HelmsmaN - Bodybuilders, if what your talking about are anything like the ones I'm thinking of, then those things are a pain. Also how you said "CMDR Lazy" I'm sorry but I can't stress this enough, I am not in the military, I am only a Cadet in a High School program hence the "C/Lt" (Cadet Lieutenant [actually Cadet 2nd Lieutenant is my actual rank but yea you get the idea]). I'm sorry if I interpreted that the wrong way but it's something I have to make sure of because if it was a remark saying refering to me being in the actual military then in a way it's kind of an insult to the military because I am only a high school cadet. Anyway thanks to, but I tried searching for your "GPP" post and it didn't work.
