Eltee,I don't know of any "new" routine not knowing your "old" routine but besides your everyday weight work or fitness machines I'd say push-ups/ pull-ups for the arms & sit-ups/ crunchers for the abs. Those can be done anywhere, any time, no gym required. Don't just work on arms & abs to get in shape. Cardio is the most important so you'll have to run a lot, too.

What I tell young people preparing for BCT/AIT/OSUT is to alternate push-ups with sit-ups while watching TV every time there's a commercial on. That's one of the methods I used for my son when he was preparing for Infantry OSUT/Airborne School /RIP & he found those to be fairly easy & even at Ranger School a year later. Of course he had to train for running fast for long distances as well.
