For the past 4+ years I've been incredibly lazy and now I'm super out of shape, not over weight or anything though. I recently grew tired of my shitty life style so I started looking into some things to do and after doing lots of research on the military I decided I wanted to join the marines. This little back story is just to help you guys to get what's going on.
I've got about 4-5 months before I leave for boot camp and I want to use this time to get in the best possible shape in the time given. I started working out about a month ago and this is what I've been doing so far:
Weight lifting.. a few sets of light weights a day
Leg workouts.. ^
and I've been walking about 2-3 miles a day and throwing in about 30 seconds of running(I get winded really fast)
I'm just trying to build my endurance up not get all super beefy. Is this a decent way to start out?
Also; a few other questions.
Does walking really help at all?
Is protein important for what I'm trying to accomplish?
And pretty much just whatever tips you can give me to help build endurance.
