A wise man once told me: "You can't outrun the spoon." That's what I'm looking at lol.

Double FYI for paintball rules there should be no "offer" of surrender, its either mandatory surrender at X distance when guy is behind you or no surrender and you get shot in the booty. "offer" of surrender makes for some ridiculous and dangerous john woo tactics.

If this is a somewhat serious post, then I would say check diet first then exercise selection and programming. 5 days is plenty if not more than plenty to to get in shape/stay in shape. Shoot even 3 days works just fine too.

What kind of exercise do you do?

Man up and get with the program. Anabolic steroids and protein shakes every meal as a start. Push your car back and forth to work each day like Conan on the wheel of woe. A few years from now you will be cast in some badass movies about an indestructible robot from the future.....

Diet is definitely part of it I don't eat horribly but I probably ingest more bread then I should.

Been working on lifting lately but I also do a lot of HIIT style stuff.

Another major issue is my job is quite seditary. ..

The gym was PACKED today lol.

4x

10 burpees
10 box jumps (24 inches? Not really sure, I had 2 45lb plates stacked on the 18 inch box cuz someone had wandered off with the proper box)
20 KB swings 35lb
10 one hand snatch 25lb (five each side)
10 Russian twist, 25lb plate one touch each side =1
20 flutter kicks, both legs up/down = 1

Then set a bench mark of 7 chin ups at the start of the year. That needs to improve.

My end goal (does it ever end?) Is to complete an unweighted Murph in less than two hours. There, I wrote it down! Gotta do it now! MCB keep me honest.

Murph

1 mile run
100 pull ups
200 push ups
300 air squats
1 mile run (same time or faster than the first)

All while wearing a 20lb weight vest... or a plate carrier...

That's a worthy goal. Be careful you're not pushing yourself into overtraining. I have to hold myself back as I have a strong tendency to overdo it. Remember that adaptation happens while you rest, working out is just the stress that stimulates the body to adapt. If you've got a heart rate monitor look into HRV training - it basically looks at the variability of your heart rate to help you plan when to go hard and when to focus on recovery. Makes a big difference and takes guesswork and "feel" out of programming decisions.

I'm still recovering from losses due to a back injury. My short term goal is to get back where I was before the injury, long term goals are:
Deadlift 2x bw
Squat 1.5x bw
Pull-ups 12 with 32kg kb
Bench 1x bw
I weight train 3x weekly, but do at least an hour of walking or light cardio daily.

I'd say that you're flirting with overtraining. Possibly even already midway through a romantic dinner in some midrange restaurant and overtraining is making doe eyes through a haze of overpriced protein and red wine.

What was your program before?

Not over training yet. BeeN there, blew out a knee.

I have always been a big guy, power from the legs and core, weak arms big shoulders, back... and a gut.

My goal is to loose that body fat around the middle.

It will be a mix of better eating habits (a lot of this) adding more cardiovascular to my routine and a small increase in gym time.

Regular routine is similar to above. One or two weight days a week with 3 or 4 HIIT style days. 30-45 min.
