I got into looking at LE as a profession during my sophomore year of HS and I was wrestling and lifting weights. I just started running, lifting again trying to get in shape for MMA. I lift 6 days a week doing 2 or 3 muscle groups a day. for example today is forarms calfs and back. If you feel your overweight I guess it's difrent.Greetings.

Okay, I've bit my tongue I few times but now I have to post a pet peeve.
Maybe others agree with me, maybe not, but could you please actually post a title on your posts instead of just putting half your opening sentence as your title?
When people are searching for posts later on it will make it a lot easier to locate the correct topic.
Plus, I just find it annoying. Okay, I'm done.
On to your question.
Most FLE/LE academies focus on running and calisthenics (pushups, pullups, situps, bodybuilders) so your workout should include a healthy dose of both.
Personally I enjoy lifting weights so I continue to do so, but try to focus more on endurance with higher reps than raw strength and lower reps.
Some people going into LE have worked out and been in shape all their lives. Some are starting from scratch. It can take a sedentary person several months to a year to get into LE conditions. Others who are more active may already be ready or only need a few weeks to brush up.I conclude that no circumstances exist that would permit Congress, in contravention of the Constitution's Bill of Attainder Clause, to prohibit non-registered males age twenty-six and older from federal employment for their lifetime without judicial decision making - U.S. District Judge Douglas P.

I have actually deleted several posts discussing the issue of not putting the subject of your post in your titles. It is, indeed, something that needs to be addressed. In the future, please put the subject of your questions/thoughts in your title block. Now, that being said...if folks want to answer his question, please feel free. Otherwise, no further editorial comments are required.

I worked out at least four times a week.
I used to work out 4 times a week on weights, but shifted to running 3 times a week and weight lifting once a week.
It took me over 8 months to lose over 15 lbs. and get my run time under 16 minutes for the 2 mile run.
