Okay, here is some background. I have been following a fast-5/paleo diet for about 2 months, and for the last four weeks, I have been doing a 5x5 strength program. I have lost over 10 pounds. My goal is to lose another ~30 punds. I start (or plan to start if I get in) a fire academy on Jan. 15th and need to make sure Im in shape for that. Here's what I know about the academy. Some brute strength is needed (ie hoisting ladders), but it is mostly metcon and muscular endurance (ie dummy drags, running up stairs with gear etc) and the pt usually consists of lots of running, pushups, situps, and pullups.

So basically, starting Monday, new program. I was thinking of two main things. Either do another 5x5 for four weeks, then start a crossfit/PM/underground strength coach type of thing on a 5-on/2-off schedule for the remaining time. The other option I was thinking of was one of the many ME-black box variations for the entire time up to start of the academy.

Before it is said, I thought of doing the PM workouts, but unfortunatly, with my current school and work schedules, it is not a reality for me to do two workouts a day on those days (plus, Ive always been more of a 5/2 schedule instead of 3/1).

Thanks
