I've been exploring the training tips on these boards for some time now, and I'm still confused. I know a bit about fitness, but I'm starting from scratch. I need help.
So far, I've been GTGing a few basic exercises (push-ups, reverse push-ups, and squats, along with some stretches). Now I want to begin a training program and need help on where to start.
My goals are simple, be able to complete the WoD as prescribed and perform martial arts (self-defense focus, not competitive). I've got the martial arts movements down pretty well. What I need is fitness.
Should I start with the WoD? I'm nowhere near the ability to perform them right now, and I'm a little discouraged by the many times I've tried to get this off the ground. The fitness program design articles I've found here are really good reads, but I spend so much time making a training routine, refining it, then finally trying it and finding that I'm not ready for it and burn out.
Here are some starting stats relating to the APK warm-up:
Push-ups - 15
Pull-ups/Chin-ups - 4
Squats - 18
Jog - 3 min (before I have to walk)
All of those are my max reps per set using only my bodyweight. I must say, seeing those numbers in print is pretty painful.
If anyone can help me out, I'd really appreciate it.
