Anyone in the Military ? If so , do yu know any great workouts to prepare before basic training ?

24 Sep
I am a Marine. Do lots of running, crunches and pullups/dead hangs. Anything cardio! Also if you have access to a pool thats great as well since that works every part of your body. If you are looking for specific workouts or circuit training excercises just let me know and ill give you some good stuff that really pushes you :)

Push-ups and sit-ups anything for the core, abs, upper body, and chest. Running and resistance training for the legs. Booty boot camp and Ab boot camp are two great workouts.

Do a wide variety of push ups, but focus on tricep push ups in prep for BCT. You also want to do a wide variety of core exercises and planks, and sprints. If you're going army find your age on the APFT chart and get to where you can score at least 60 in each event. Get used to little sleep and pushing all day lol

LoLz , ii really like the last part (; Thanks !

Def focus on core and cardio.  Try to continuously increase max pushups and situps.  I do a lot of planks, and bicycle kicks.  As for running, switch back and forth between speed and distance.  Bmt isnt bad, they'll make you strong, but it does help when going in decent shape.

Two minutes is great for one hold.  But to get better core I recommend plank circuits.  Such as normal planks, side planks, plank walks, plank presses, planks to pushups, 25% holds, 50% holds, modified planks, reverse planks.  Create your own routine and have fun with it.  Don't try to go as long as possible on one but do set times (45sec-1min) then take breaks and transition.

Thanks again for the advices (: I'll do them .

Im a sgt and squad leader for the 459th tc in elwood il. Ive been in for 13 years. What you need to do is really work hard on your situps, pushups and 2 mile run and watch what you eat. Theres a army physical fitness chart you can find online. Based on your age and gender you have to complete a number of reps to get the desired score. Good luck and stay motivated future trooper hooahhhhhh!!!!

Thanks Eddie & I'll be sure to take on yur advice (: & Thank Yu for serving our country sergeant .

Always a blessing to help out future soldiers. Remember this in bootcamp, there are going to be days that your tired and down and the drill sgts will get on your last nerves. Stay motivated and strong and dont quit.

Im a sgt in the army. Do alot....and I do mean alot of 1 mile and 2 mile running,  also do interval running, 30/ 60's. 30 sec of hard sprinting then 60 sec of walking, complete 10 reps of this. For strength training there are great pushup and situps workouts on the skimble app. Along with these do planks and alot of stretching. Also watch, please watch what you eat, the military will kick you out for being overweight.   Most importantly stay motivated and never quit!!!
