Default physical condition

Should I stop lifting weights as much, and focous more on push-ups.. because I figure it'd be better to not have huge muscles in combat, to lower your profile.. but have just as much or even more endurance/strength

But from what i can tell coming first isnt necesseraly the best thing, im no expert but they seem to have a strong "if one fails, everyone fails" policy.

You pretty much answered your own question here. Unless you are really huge, keep on lifting. You are required to fit into a uniform without alterations/tailoring and meet AR 670-1 uniform and appearance regs.

But as you stated, work on endurance as much as possible, also. You will need it for the Physical Fitness portion of your training.
