5 days a week (twice a day=optional)

warmup

Half mile run

8sec sprint, 52sec recovery x5 (increase time when it gets easier)

7x1.00 Minute Jump Rope

3 x 3 Minute Shadowboxing

Tabata Run on Spot

Floor Exercises

(200 in total)

Bicycle Crunches

Decline Crunches

1 Min Plank

5 min meditation

Cool down

i need more exercises that will challenge me but not incorperate alot of shoulder activity because it gives me grief even from pushups (torn RC) so i need some good challenging exercises that you reccomend or at least tweat my routine for me to make it even more challenging.

my goals are strictly fat loss and to see my abs by the new year, and what do you mean by below marine corps standards? is that a good thing? and its a healthy one too haha 

and my shoulders get work by shadowboxing and the sprints :)

any more exercises you can suggest? ill be adding the squat jumps and burpees (without pushup)

Buy a 35lb Kettlebell and do swings, snatches, thrusters and turkish getups. Swings alone will get you in incredible shape.  They did for me.  

Thanks Man :) ill give this a shot for my Warmup session. :)

Thanks people, any more exercises that you can suggest?

http://www.7weekstofitness.com/ has some great bodyweight programs.  Several of the programs are free online (with registration) and each exercise listed has a link to a more detailed description.  The 300 Situps program has 30 different exercises to challenge and develop your core and add incredible variety to your floor routine.  Modify whatever you need to in order to accomodate your shoulder injury.  I'd especially be careful with the Hanging Leg Raise (requires you to hang from a pull-up bar) or substitute something else into it altogether.

If you want a proper routine to gain muscle, thus allowing you to have abs without looking like a human skeleton, you need to lift weights. Doing 1 minute planks may be a good routine for your mental health (plus the meditation, a nice touch) but it won't accomplish much. Also, losing weight is about diet, not exercise. You need to eat less than your caloric needs for that. But again, having visible abs without decent muscle mass requires a very low bodyfat to the point of being unhealthy, and you may not even look good.

You would do well to run as if Satan himself were chasing you.

run almost every day, sprints, distance, intervals, hills, etc.

 

eat lean and run much, dont drink any damn soda or gatorades either water water water.
