Hey I'm here, my name is Shaun, and I'm with the Wilmington Boxing and Fitness Center and today I'm going to talk to you about army basic training exercises and the three main exercises that you need to know to get into basic training is your pushups, sit ups and your running. So to start out I'm going to show you how to do the push up properly. So one, you want to get your hands about shoulder width apart, you want to get your back flat and you don't want your butt all up in the air, get your back flat, hands shoulder width apart, you want to go down, let your chest touch the floor, keep your head neutral. You don't want to have your head up, you don't want to have your head all the way down, keep your head at neutral and down, that's how you do the push up properly. For your sit ups you want to lay flat down, feet on the ground. Now you can either cross your hands or you can put them at your ears but you do not want to pull on your neck, that is going to put a strain on your neck so either put your hands here and you want to sit up and as you are coming up make sure that you are breathing out. Those are two of the main ones and the next one is jogging. You want to be able to run to get in you have got to run at least a mile in eight minutes so to work your way up to that I would start out, maybe walk, jog, walk, jog, starting out around the track and you know just build your way up to a mile so that you are running consistently and you just want to work that way up so that you make that mile time and when you get in continue to work your way up so that you get to two miles. Those are your army basic training exercises.
