Military Style!

Time to step it up! I came across this workout on ehow.com. I will start first thing tomorrow morning. You should too.
Good Luck & Enjoy!
Instructions:
1
Wake up at 0600 in the morning. Go outside and stretch.
First run in place for about one minute. This will get your blood flowing and wake you up a little.
Now stretch your Arms, Legs, Abs, Neck and everything else.
2
After about ten minutes of stretching, you are ready to start your work out.
Start by doing 25 Four count Jumping jacks. This means, you jump, spread your legs and clap your hands over your head, etc. That is count One. Jump again, bring your legs together and put your hands to your sides. That is count two. Jump out and clap over your head again, that is count three. Bring your legs together and hands to your side again and that is count Four. That is ONE four count jumping jack.
3
Do 25 Over the head clappers.
Hold your arms out at shoulder level. Bring them up and clap over your head. Then back down to your shoulder level. Just like a Jumping jack without jumping.
4
Do 25 regular push ups.
Get on the ground on your stomach. Put your arms out to your sides, right next to your shoulders a few inches away from the shoulders. Keep your back straight. Don’t sag in the middle or arch your buttocks in the air. That is cheating.
Now push up, then down.
5
Do 25 Sit Ups.
Get on your back. Bend your knees to a 45 degree angle. Put your hands behind your head (If your hands come out from behind your head, that one doesn’t count).
Now Sit up.
(You can add a variation to this by going half way up, then hold it. Then go all the way up. Then half way down. Then Three quarters of the way down. Then all the way down. Or you can put a rock or other weight on your chest, then do sit ups.)
6
25 Crunches.
Lay down like you are doing a Sit Up. Put your feet in the air at a 90 degree angle.
Bring your body only a few inches off the ground. You should feel your ab muscles tighten up.
7
25 Close hand push ups.
Turn over on your stomach. Put your hands flat on the ground, about Three or Four inches apart. Do Push Ups.
DO NOT MAKE A DIMOND WITH YOUR INDEX FINGERS AND THUMBS! This is harmful to your arms.
8
50 Flutter Kicks.
Lay on your back and raise your legs Six inches off the ground.
Kick your Left leg up and your Right leg down. Keep doing this and switching back and forth, up and down. Do them rather quickly.
(Fair warning, Doctors have said these might damage your lower back. The Army still does them though.)
9
50 Military Press’.
Stand back up. Put your hands up in at shoulder level. Raise your hands over your head and back down to shoulder level. Do this over and over.
10
Run.
Stretch your legs a little more and go run One or Two miles.
11
Now your are done.
Stretch your muscles again so you don’t damage your muscles or get muscle cramps.
