I sit in front of the computer or tv most of my time and I am really weak, until recently I was even slightly anorexic, but I started eating more and now I’m in the ideal BMI range, however I am still much weaker than I should be.
My goal is to be fit enough to join the army (Serbian, not American, we have some fat soldiers here, so I guess the rules aren’t as strict as there, but still…, also I’d join a more lenient direction, for example recon units and sabotage units have a lot of exercises, but mechanics, radar operators,etc. aren’t required to do as much physical stuff, but even they are required to do some of it of course)
Instead of some random unit, I can consider myself to be fit enough for an average 22 year old male when I can achieve:
x pushups without any stops and x pushups with occasional 30 seconds pauses
When I can run x meters without being breathless
x sit ups without pauses
x squats without pauses
Not sure about the other things, but I absolutely suck with running now, just some 10, 20 seconds of non-sprint running is enough to make me breath hard for a entire minute or two, by comparison, when I was in middle school, I could run for 2 or 3 minutes at full speed and I didn’t breath hard whatsoever, I remember we had a school race with 30-ish students and I was among the first three, so I really went down…
