The Navy doesn't have medics either. They have Corpsmen. :tup:

Whoa whoa whoa, first off I'm in the Navy how could I hate it? Also, I know these guys are 100x more intelligent than I am! I'm not doubting that one bit. My point is that I can't go to Navy PT and get a workout, I need to do it on my own. The guys there get a good workout, even though most of them will only exercise their brain during their Navy career.

Sorry, I was a little jumpy there wasn't I? I just don't like hearing the words "Pathetic and weak" used to describe military folks, regardless of the branch.

I'm sorry also, I was harsh in my judgements against my fellow seamen.

Bench press 225lbs
35 pull-ups
120 push ups (2 mins)
180 sit ups (2 mins)
8 min 500m swim
16:30 min 3-mile run

Right now I'm at:
135lbs
22 pull ups
105 push ups
115 sit ups
10:36 500m swim
19:09 3-mile run

Since I'm pretty sure I'll reach my goals, for now I want to build a lot of muscle mass so when I cut back and increase my endurance, I'll get more solid condensed muscle.


I find that using weights when doing crunches/sit-ups (The sit-ups with the arms crossing over the chest) helps immensely when trying to get a number of sit-ups going in two minutes. I use a 25lb. weight. I simply clutch it, press it to my chest, and do 100 untimed sit-ups. Later, I try to do as many weighted sit-ups I can do in 2 minutes. I average about 125-130 sit-ups every time I go and do a PFT.

I do think that 180 sit-ups in 2 minutes is a little extreme though. But that's not a bad thing. Go for that goal. The military isn't looking for people who settle; they look for people who have the feeling to exceed the standard. So I'd say you're on the right track already.

Running can be a very difficult challenge if you are just getting into it. When I first got into running, I got hurt - a lot. To run distance faster do a mixed routine of long distance running and sprinting. Sprinting will help you bunches. Find a track and sprint various lengths whenever you can.

(Also, it is late. I'm tired. Sorry if there are a million errors in this text that my tired eyes cannot see.)

I want to be a MARSOC officer...I'm aiming to be in the top tier fitness wise in MARSOC if I make it. Also I want company ironman. But yea the weights definitely help me with my speed. I don't start getting tired until like 85-90 but I pretty much need that number at 180 and be sprinting out my crunches. I'm starting a whole new workout to break all these plateaus I just seemed to hit. This month will be interesting in a painful way. :D

It's going to consist pretty much of a daily supplemental 200 pull ups, push ups, and 25lb crunches in as few sets as possible to my current workout plan...should be interesting.

Here's a tip for working out. Don't go for a run when you are already dehydrated. Furthermore, don't immediately follow up that run with a brazillian jiu jitsu class that is in a poorly ventilated building. Severe diarrhea will result.

Honestly I'm moving towards starting that type of training. I'm doing 45lb pack runs 1-2 miles depending on how I'm feeling, I'll run while I'm already thirsty 1-2 miles, run with a hoodie on. Just anything to help my mind and body handle the pain.

"What doesn't kill you makes you stronger" is full of crap. Don't go out there and do crap that'll hurt your body, because hurting =/= helping.

That said.... ruck runs are like the manliest thing you can do without wearing protection. Git you some!

Yea my neck hurts for like two days after....Also on the dehydration/heat training, its been proven it works. Israeli special forces do it and they even had one of their guys on TV, just like the SEAL did the ice water bath. They both surpassed what the scientist said was "humanly possible." But yea you're right. You can't train if you're hurt.

I found a new way to kill my entire body today. Grabbed a 25lb pack and did EVERYTHING with it max sets...twice. Pull ups, push ups, shoulder press, skullcrushers, curls, sit ups, bench press (harder than it sounds when you're maxing out) and then ran a mile. Rest between exercises as needed to catch your breath, and rest for 5 minutes or longer depending on how long you need, get water, and repeat. After the second run, catch your breath, do max pull ups with the pack, then drop it and continue. Repeat for push ups, and then dropping down to your knees after you max out body weight push ups, and do the same for sit ups. Go for a cooldown jog after if you have the energy without the pack. Honestly running is the worst part. Simply because the pain is drawn out. You can't do any of those exercises for longer than 2 minutes, but the run drags on.
