How To Work Out For Future Marine?


8 Answers

Run. Run every day. Run at least 5 miles/day. Do push-ups, try to work up to at least 50 in two minutes. Have someone watch you to make sure your back is straight. Try and get used to living on 6 hours of sleep about a month before you go to boot camp but rest up a couple of days before you go. Do these things and your DI will ensure you receive training to do anything else required.

Hmm, the 50 push ups shouldn't be too hard I do a lot of push-ups but as for running I don't do that much because I've always run slower than my peers....though that might be because my "peers" are always about 3 years older than me. But thanks I've been waiting for answer for a while thanks so much. :D

Try jogging four miles a day, doing as many push ups in a minute as possible,doing pull ups,and last but not least the weights.

Also you might want to try doing this stuff in a pair of work boots so you are ready for the field training you will receive.

I am a former Marine. I can tell you a million different things to do to get ready but no matter what you do it will still be difficult. You're 15, the best thing to do is join a track team or wrestling team, just do something active and train hard at it everyday and you will be more than ready by the time you step off of the bus and onto the yellow footprints. Good luck! Semper Fi.

My advice to a Marine candidate is: The mental training is more than the physical training. A drill instructor will get you in shape, you may not believe it but being singled out for extra "punishment" is a tool to help you toward fitness. Listen,do,and move on, keep your head on straight that's the key. Your goal is to be a Marine. I would never try to drop someone because I don't like them or, because they don't measure up to my standards. A Marine has that thing, and you will know it when they place that Eagle Globe and Anchor in your hand and call you a Marine.
