Running with weighted backback ? Its alot harder to do I know.
But is that healthy for your knees and joints ?Hannibal: The sworn enemy of dishonest politicians, source of entertainment on Bullshido and newly appointed Office Linebacker. Terry Tait ain't got **** on me !!!!

Doesn't matter. He will be doing it in the army anyways, so he may as well get used to it now.I'm not drowning my sorrows, I'm preserving them in alcohol.

Ignore them oil. Qi Gong, dit da jow for the sprains. Oh, and don't forget to buy a bright-red fidel castro t-shirt. Apparently they love that in the US military. Shows character.

Buy a pair of military issue boots and a few pairs of good black wool socks. Then go hiking with your new ALICE pack with a minimum of 50lbs. Take at least 6 quarts of water. A military march pace is the equivalent to a fast walk with long strides, practice your rucking.
Get used to eating fast. Food is a privelege in Basic, especially breakfast. Have one of the NCO's at your recruiting station put your through at least a 30 minute smoke session so you get a feel for what to expect, and how much endurance you need to work on.
Get your 2 mile run time to under 14 minutes. The closer you can get it to 12 the better.
pushups times seventy bazillion
situps, same as pushups plus one
practice yor overhead clapping for about 15 minutes with arms fully extended.
Get your back strong.
Stretch thoroughly, the Army has a tendency of tightening you up. Continue to stretch throughout Basic.
And don't worry, it's only "tough" the first 3 weeks.Who, for Pete’s sake! Is opposing science? In fact, we want MORE science by CRITICALLY ANALIZING the evidence-Connie Morris, Kansas State BOE (bolding and underlining part of original quote, red is my emphasis)

How about the TUF treadmill routine? 5 mins at 5mph, 5mins of rest, add 1mph up to 10mph. The most I could get up to was halfway through 8mph.Legendary Street Fighter

My conditioning in general has gone up quite abit, I find it builds mental discipline more then anything though, my conditioning for fighting has gone up since I've started training harder, sparring and shadow boxing alot more.
As for the military, we had this psuedo Military/RAF program thing at high school, it mostly just running weights and situps/pushups though, as I said, it was a crappy school program and the validity of my advise is worth crap.
