Anyways, I would recommend that you do not run every day. You want a day of rest between each running day to give your knees a rest. You also don't want to do your upper or lower body workouts on back to back days as you're not going to give your muscles any rest period. I know the military wants you to work out every day, so you'll just have to try out different things, just remember not to do the same stuff every day or your body will not have a chance to repair itself and you will likely either have stagnant PT Test results, or you will see your performance decline.

If all you really want to do is max out your PT score, then do this small workout every day.

Pushups - 3 sets, 60 seconds each max reps possible.
Situps - 3 sets, 60 seconds each max reps possible.
Running - 10 minute run, sprint max speed for 30 seconds, slow jog for 30 seconds. Alternate your sprinting and jogging until the 10 minutes are up.

This short workout is enough to shock your muscles but not enough to break them down so much that you wouldn't be able to recover the next day. I did this for a few months and got my PT score up to about a 340. Was doing around 80 pushups, 90 situps, and my run was around 12:30.

thanks for the info man

its gona take some trial and error to find a routine thats gona work for me

i was talking to the doc today (2 of my roomates here are) and was asking him about cardio, he told me its ok to do everyday, but if i run one day the next do a non impact type cardio like one of the machines (elyptical) and go lighter that day, cause those days i will be doing muscle failure workouts in the afternoon after shift

i plan on mixing up my workouts too so im not doing the same ol bs all the time, and not just running all the time, planning on mixing up the hard cardio days with agility type stuff like sprints and suicides for quickness, somedays doing ruckmarches, and taking fridays off all together (also my day off from work)

ive read a lot over the last few hrs and this seems to be the most logical

like i said its gona take a week or so of trial and error to find what works best for me

im also gona talk to a good buddy of mine whos a pro bodybuilder, but is a persoal trainer who can give me some solid advice

thanks again for that SF packet, that was a HUGE help

ok well i sat down at work today and put together a program

its just a starting block and will be revamped in the next few weeks

for now ima roll with this and see how it works

its complied of bodyweight training, cardio (endurance and plyometrics), and army shit like ruckmarches and also gives plenty of rest time for my body

i think its a pretty good all around schedual allowing me to stay in a format, but choose what i want to do so it never gets booring or i hate doing something cause i did it last time kinda routine

im also keeping a log with it to keep track

thanks guys for the help and crow for the packet

ill post it up soon for you to check out
