I'm pretty new to all this and trying to maintain myself for my job. I'm airborne infantry, and as it stands I'm not allowed to run or ruck or jump from a plane. Kinda defeats my job description. Fitness is a big deal to me personally, before this started in Iraq I was training to fight, and now I'm looked on as a cripple. I was wondering if anyone had any workout tips, especially for more intense work. And if anyone has had to deal with this in the military I'm all ears to anything you have to say.

Ramp up your stationary cardio. Get some good at home aerobics dvd's or something.

If that doesn't sound like your cup of tea, as a Marine myself aerobics just doesn't sound good enough, there are some really good hard core work out dvds out there so just keep an eye out for them.

Thank you much, your right aerobics just isn't going to be enough. I need my jujitsu, I haven't been able to fight in months and months. I guess I might just have to stick to guns.

Kettlebells and Crossfit! Both have lots of military/former military participants, and they are as hard-core as you could possibly want.
