I did a linear progression program for a while and made some nice gains, but it was doing absolutely nothing for my weight problem. Sitting close to 33% body fat, and need to get down to 26% in a reasonable amount of time. I need to drop it to even consider military service, but i'm in a Fire 1 course that I need good health for once we start practicing working fires so I don't have to worry about having a heart attack inside a burning building. I finally started doing cardio, with this program called the couch to 5k plan. Minimum of 30 mins of cardio per day, every day essentially a walk/jog system to build me up to running 3 miles a day, which i've been doing for almost 4 weeks. I still want to lift to supplement all of this, but i'm not sure what type of program to use now. I love strength training, it's the only thing that kept me coming back to the gym, but in the short-mid term i'm not sure if I should keep pushing my strength gains or switch to some sort of German Volume hybrid. Any advice on this weight situation, or perhaps better ideas for cardio? Given my choice for occupation, and my desire to be above average, I need to have good health, cardio, and strength to do it all.
