    On the weekend, do the tennis then stretching.

    Infact, you should do stretching as a warm down every day.

    That's a lot of work that will accomplish very little. There's much better ways to improve your fitness using just your bodyweight and a track.

    Are you going to pay @T1000 for him to write a program for you?

    thats excessive, no need to hit 1,000 pushups in a week. same with pull ups.

    replace those with more functional strength training using equipment to work on. You can maybe scale those down to 1-2 days a week

    Usually posters have some knowledge on the topic and ask intelligent questions instead of "spoonfeed me all the info"

    How the heck do you do 100 pull ups and 20 min of jumping rope? Are these sets or you do them all one sitting?

    In my part of the world, Marines need to do 20 pull ups in a row with good form to get a perfect score on their annual fitness test. I can't do more than 8 in a row with strict form at the moment, though I've started training them again.

    If I could do 20 pull-ups in a row without much difficulty, I'd add a weight belt and try to gain some strength or work on fun stuff like muscle-ups.

    Static stretching prior to those workouts and you'll end up injured.

    Ya, I've seen what "good form" means in those tests.

    I love to watch the "weigh belt pullup" crowd. Most can't even do 1 pullup, full range, with good form. But they can do lots of crappy ones with a 45 lb. plate strapped to them.

    Fun huh? I take it you've never worked on muscle-ups.

    Somebody's been reading the internet.

    I haven't seen the Marines doing the testing, but I play tennis with a few Marines so that's where I've discussed doing pull ups. If they let them kip them up, then maybe I'd even come closer to being able to do 20:D.

    So you're saying that since I can sometimes do 8 pull ups with fairly strict form that I need to start hanging a 25lb plate. Gotcha.

    I currently do pull ups in my garage. I'm sure it would be fun, I'm just worried about hitting my head into the ceiling.;)

    With muscle-ups, the big concern is tearing up your shoulders. Go slow if you ever try it. And plan your progressions wisely. The plan is to get stronger, not injured.
    I watched ROTC doing their tests a few years in the college gym. It looked like cross fit gone wrong.

    Yeah, I probably won't be trying to do muscle ups if it is hard on the shoulders. I've been doing pull ups because I've found it helps protect my shoulder when serving.

    I'll just stick with the safe movements.
