Nobody here. Here is the back story: We have a young volunteer firefighter that is in horrible physical shape. I'm 46, he's 21 and I can stomp him into the ground doing our physical agility test. He does't appear to have the strength or stamina that is required to do the job. Last summer we did a firefighter combat challenge type course and he barely finished and ended up on oxygen, which earned him the nickname Heatstroke. He does have a big heart and tries really hard. He is in danger of being kicked out and I'd like to help him prevent that. So here is my plan, and I've talked to him and he seems open to it, I'm going to teach him how to work out with kettlebells, my prefered tool, and set him up with some workouts to do for the next 2 months. The idea being that if he really wants to stay in he will stick with the workouts. Here is the dilemna I'm having. What's a good way to measure his progress? I'm sure I can come up with something but I thought I'd throw it out for ideas. What do you guys think.
