Hi folks, I'm looking at applying to become a police officer next year, and as a result doing extra running etc. However I'm also trying to bulk up a bit as I'm very lightweight and extra size, but more importantly strength, would be very useful obviously. For reference, I'm about 172cm and 58kg so yeah very light.
I find that because I'm also doing a lot of aerobic fitness work I have trouble putting on weight, even though I'm also doing some weight work, is there any advice I could have as far as trying to get the most out of both areas of fitness? I've started doing some work with kettlebells, do any of you guys have any thoughts or suggestions of other workout regimes which do both?

Thanks guys, yeah I've been trying the eat more thing... I've got such a quick metabolism that even whilst doing no exercise I don't put on much weight, let alone whilst improving fitness...
I'm currently 20 years old.
Ordinarily I probably wouldn't do as much long distance work, but I need to to prepare for Police application, so I'm trying to do that, as well as build up strength and mass.
I'd like to leave this world like I came into it: Screaming, naked & covered in someone else's blood

Can't say an awful lot more than eat more. What's your current daily calorie intake? How much Aerobic training are you doing per week?

Well you only need to run the test in the alloted time, which is usually pretty easy for the average Joe. So I don't think you should have to be putting in too much running work unless you are reallY out of shape.

I'm not sure on the calorie intake to be honest.
As far as exercise, on average I would go for a half-hour jog twice a week, as well as a brisk walk for about half an hour most mornings with my dog and go for brief, fast runs at random times when I get the opportunity (more of a sprint).
On top of that I have MA training a couple of times a week which is usually more combat fitness or technique orientated, and I've just started swinging a kettlebell around twice a week (on different days to the jogs).
When my legs are recovering I do some arm strength work like chinups, pushups, weights etc.
I'm not super experienced with fitness routines or anything like that, just try my best and use common sense...
