      I included the dips because those will help you with doing the new push ups.

        Go to military.com and check out the exercise programs listed there.

          Drink lots of water, get rid of any sugar drinks and if you smoke, drop it. Get in some form of physical exercise routine, so the shock of exercise wont task your body out as much and recovery will be faster.

            Follow those links and there is a section for 50 pull ups. I suggest doing that as well. For the APFT you wont be doing any pull ups but you will do them on occasion during morning pt sessions and they help when it comes to climbing rope, obstacle course etc. Some basic calistenics and maybe a little weight training can go along way. If you have never lifted weights before I would probably not do any before you go and just focus on the body weight exercises and calistenics. Muscular endurance is your best friend at basic training and really just about any military related training or physically demanding school.

                Oh and one last thing make sure you always train for the standard meaning whatever events are on the PT test then that is what your workout will be because you train for the test.
