    I just do 55 push ups and 60 sit ups each night. For cardio and leg muscle exercise, I just ride my bike really fast, lol.

    Um lets see..........

    I swim from 0545-0745 and from 1500-1800 everyday.

    Three days a week I lift from 1800-1930.

    The two days that I don't lift I run 3-6 miles.

    An average swim practice is roughly 7000 yards. A bad one might be 11-13,000 yards.

    Then our weightlifting routine is a two day set. Day one is upper body and day two is lower.

    I do PT three days a week for work, plus I run and lift weights on my own time.
    If someone with multiple personalities threatens to kill himself, is it considered a hostage situation?

    Question Question of my own

    RFRD, how long have you been training at this rate for? I haven't been keeping up with my planned work out routine lately and am wondering how this work out program has made you feel and perform in the firefighting field?

    Three years now.



    In addition to the workouts I am also a member of about 5 school clubs, activly pursuing my Eagle Scout, doing 2-3 hours of homework a night, and doing explorers and stuff down at the station.

    So on a very good night I will get 4.5-5 hours of sleep a night. I usually end up sleeping during some classes, but it all works out in the end with a 4.0 gpa. So I'm not missing much when I sleep.

    Oh most days I feel like total s***. lol But you get used to it.

    Dude, you need to get out more and get leied. (You know, one of those Hawaiian flower necklaces... )

    Keep up the work on the Eagle though!

    Default workout

    personally i'm not a big guy either but i got a few tips for simulation type exercises

    dragging hose- take a used tire and put dumb bells in the inner rim until you have loaded up 150 lbs+. then take a thick rope (1/2' kermantle) and make it four strands thick. wrap it around the tire and make it so u can drag it across the ground. the rubber tire creates the friction the weight simulate the charged weight of the hose. (wear gear)

    to simulate gear- use your explorer gear or buy a weight vest (50lbs or so capacity) run stairs 2 flights minimum non stop.

    to build your legs more do lunges with your gear on. dumbells in each hand to add weight.

    i make sure i put in atleast 12 running miles a week. and also work my shoulders, core (abs-will prevent back injury if strong and lift properly), and back.
