USMC

Your welcome. Another good idea is the USMC Gym Test. (United States Marine Corps, Fitness Test). Which is doing as many of the different exercises that you can in one minute. i.e. Most pressups in one minute, most situps in one minute etc etc. Record your figures and then go at your training regime...
