Hi. So I am in the Police Academy and have to meet certain criteria for the physical test. We have to do 33 pushups in one minute. I can do 32 right now, but can not push out the last one! I know I need to work on my upper body strength. Any suggestions or routines would greatly be appreciated. Thanks!
Hello! I recently had a breast reduction surgery (15 days ago) and am wondering when is a good time to start this program? I definitely want to be safe and not injure myself, but I have not been able to run since I was in the 7th grade (I'm now 28). I am so excited!!!! I'm thinking that starting out with just walking for x amount of time for a few weeks wood be a good way to ease into this, but I wanted to see if anyone else had dealt with this as well. Thanks in advance!!!! (:
I've been an on again off again walker for about a year now, but the doc says I need to make it an everyday thing. The only time I can find to get in the exercise is first thing in the morning as soon as I wake up. I've been trying to add more running to my walking to ease into it, but I find it to not be enjoyable. I'm overweight and I've never been a runner, so I'm sure my technique is completely wrong. I do have comfortable shoes--Brooks Beasts--and they provide excellent support, but I still get some shin pain. I don't believe these are splints, but I'm not sure. Does anyone have advice/sites for helping me use the proper running technique? I know I need to ease into it so I've been doing intervals as best as I am able, but I really want to get up to speed (no pun intended) as quickly as possible so that I can get more benefit out of my morning walks/runs.
