    You are unlikely to be able to enlist in the USCG with $25,000 of consumer debt unless you have an acceptable payment plan in place and are current with ALL payments. You are basically paying at least 18% APR on that $25,000

    Basically the answer to weight training in preparation for military basic training is NO. You need to concentrate on running -- getting up to two miles runs, three times a week. The additional training to go along with running is various calisthenics to limber you up, note the word various. Push ups, sit ups, whatever is recommended by military sources.

    depends on what your MOS is gonna be, some need strength in certain areas, 

    but in basic, you need the calisthenics and running.

    if you wanna lift weights, focus on the large muscle groups, like squats, military press and back exercises
