My team and I want to try and play MiLP, race to format, next year, so I figured it was time to get in shape so I can be able to steadily produce on the field. I have always been an active person until about 2-1 1/2 years ago when I got asthmatic bronchitis and became a couch potato. I decided to try and design a workout routine that would help me specifically in paintball, but also just to generally be a healthy person. I have been reading some threads in this forum, reading stuff around the internet, and talking to people more fit than me to try and figure this out. My goal was to try and keep everything to just bodyweight, no weights, if possible. I wouldn't say no to a six pack either
I would love to get some feedback from people who know more about working out and that type of thing than me, as to strengths and weaknesses to what I have been doing. Any advise is appreciated. I also hope this will help other people who want to start getting in shape for the paintbullet wars.
Practice/Tournament-If neither a day of rest
Bike ride on the day not playing paintball-going for distance not speed
Distance run-I want to try and maintain a good pace, and slowly work up to where I can jog strong for an hour, then work on running faster.
Body Weight work out
30 Stand-ups (+10)
50 situps (+10)
15 right leg squats (+5)
30 sec. Thomas Taylor pushups(+5 sec.)
15 left leg stand ups (+5)
2 pullups (+2)
30 sec. mountain climber (+10 sec.)
20 sec. plank (+5 sec.)
1 min. wall sit(+15 sec.)
25 pushups (+5)
2.5 min. power position(+.5 min.)
Sprints- Pick a spot about 30 yards away and sprint there and back, rest for about 30 seconds, do this two more times then jog lightly for a minute or two, and repeat the whole thing twice. I want to get where I can do five sets of 3 sprints.
Paintball specific stuff- different stuff different weeks, snap shooting, divings, sliding, etc.
5K- Timed as a benchmark
I have also been trying to eat healthier and drink at least three nalgenes of water, 32 ounces, a day. Been trying to limit myself to one soft drink a week.
Again, any advise is appreciated and I hope this thread can help myself and others.
