cool good luck and i was going to try the PX90 and see if that helps but was told that it is kinda a weight training video that is just extreme

I am also training for the challenge next year. I took the Insanity challenge. Insanity is a work out program that is all on dvd. It combines intense cardio, plyometrics, body weight resistance, and max interval training. It seems to be doing wonders, but i just started and its a 60 day regimen. I will try to keep you updated on my results.

Thanks Mike. I have also been asked by an instructor and Chief to speak up for annual testing. We can change our diet and exercise, but we cannot change what our family gives us.

Thom Mc,

Follow your Doctor's PT advise & remember to listen to your body, it will let you know if you're over doing it. Set realistic goals and once you reach them raise the bar. Don't give up & always remember that you can get back in shape enough to out work the rookie. Just remember, he'll be ready to go again in 10 to 15 minutes & we may have to recover for 1 to 2 hours.

Best Wishes & welcome to a new fit you.

I plan on making a good comeback. The breathing is the part that becomes the bear, especially when I have to cough. Thanks Mike

Thom MC, the best thing you can do right now is walk, watch your food intake & walk somemore. Don't give up you can make a comeback.
Best regards,
