The military PRT, Physical Readiness Test, requires one to do a minimum number of pushups and situps followed by a 1.5 mile run.
I'm a good runner, so the main concern is my weak upperbody. A month ago I could barely do 10 consecutive pushups. Now I can do five sets of 10, which feels like good progress. However, I want to train harder.
After educating myself, I know I need to incorporate pullups for balanced muscles.
Should I do these on the same day? Also, can I follow my 'full' pushup workout (which leaves me maxxed out) with knees-down/"girl" pushups?
Or should I do more pushups throughout the day/before bed?
I'm living overseas and only have access to a poorly paved park for my runs. My jogs are followed by lunges, situps, and crunches. I'm currently working out only three times a week with the belief that rest days will benefit me more than consecutive workouts.
I don't have access to equipment or a soft surface. With that in mind, could you give me feedback?
Apologies in advance if the question isn't objective/specific enough.
