Fitness tips to prepare to join the Army?

Question by : Fitness tips to prepare to join the Army?
I want to join the army, and I would like some fitness tips so I can whip my butt into shape. I’m almost 16 right now, and I’m not really in shape. Any advice from people who have any kind of military experience would be great, or if you just know some tips. Thanks!

Hey man,

You will need to build mental toughness more than anything, but you will learn that once you join.

you should start out by doing 200-300 push-ups, 200-300 sit-ups, and 50-100 pull-ups everyday. It does not have to be all at once.

You will need to get your general fitness levels up. The best way to do that is by doing this

Jumping jacks-30 seconds
shuffle splits- 30 seconds
mountain climbers- 30 seconds
burpess 30 seconds.

repeat that 3-4 times. Before joining the army you should be doing that for 30 minutes a day.

That should help you get started. If you have anymore questions, please ask.

Good luck.
