Lets make this simple and clear.

I want to become a Marine. The Few the Proud. There many reasons why I joined of which only a few understand. Many have tried to make me back down from my decision but it only makes me more determined.

Off to Parris Island this November 22nd, if everything goes well and no police or medical problems occur till then. Contract signed for 4 years active and when after I become a Marine my MOS is Combat Support.


The main reason to keep this log is to simply keep record of my activity and training.


Starting on May 17th I will keep record of every little thing I do to mark my progress for Basic Training. I want to go into basic with a good amount of physical endurance.


GOALS - to be completed before Nov 12 2004
1. 120 push ups non-stop ( perfect form )

2. 1 1/2 miles in under 8 minutes ( HELL WHY NOT 3 MILES IN UNDER 20 MINUTES )

3. 20 perfect Pull UPS

4. 110 + crunches under 2 minutes

*5* Become a proficient swimmer.


Where I am right now I am a long way away from these goals ( NOT impossible ) . MUST & will be DONE period. The Marine Corps is all about challenges and surpassing those challenges. I also want to keep this journal so maybe one day I can inspire a kid wanting to train for USMC basic in the DEP ( polee ) program.

Cool man but for Navy basic you wont be reg. to run as much though. Plus from looking at your pics you seem to have no problems.

One questions. Why did you considered the Navy? I was real close to joining but the becoming a Marine has been my dream.

BigNic
05-17-2004, 04:38 PM
actually i was planning on joining the marines for the last few years. but recently (last yr or so) i got interested in someday going into the medical field and i knew the navy had the best medical program. Plus it would allow me to go to a marine unit if i chose. Right now thas the plan, go to hm school and then marine infantry and serve as a field corpsman w/ a marine unit or possible seabee unit

Training Routines

The following represents the heart of the training program. I recommend that you do not attempt the pull-ups until 3 or 4 hours after the pushup routine was completed. The program is conveniently divided into five training days. This is easily translated into a Monday through Friday approach to pull-up training. It is important to cease the pull-up routine for two days, Saturday and Sunday. Further, it is necessary to use consecutive days (not to skip days) when on the pull-up routine. Finally, it is more important to do the pull-ups than it is to do the pushups.

The training program was developed to improve performance in a specific exercise, the overhand pull-up. The program can be adapted to doing chin-ups and flexed arm hangs. The program depends upon quality exercises, numbers of repetitions are unimportant. When you are doing these routines you should concentrate on perfect execution of each repetition. The only person that you can fool is yourself.

Day 1

Five maximum effort sets. Rest 90 seconds between each set. Do not concern yourself with numbers. You will find that you will increase the numbers in the last two sets before you see much improvement in the first three. Make sure that each set is a maximum effort set.

Day 2

Pyramid Day. Start the pyramid with one repetition, the next set has two repetitions, the next has three. Continue in this fashion until you miss a set. (e.g. your last set was five, your next set would be six, but you could only do four. You missed a set) Do one more set at a maximum effort. Rest 10 seconds for each repetition in the previous set.

Day 3

Do three training sets with a normal overhand grip. Rest 60 seconds between each set. Do three training sets gripping the bar so that your palms are toward your face and your little fingers are touching each other. Rest 60 seconds between each set.

Day 4

Do the maximum number of training sets that you can accomplish. Rest 60 seconds between each set. You do training sets until you fail to do perfect training set. This day can wind up being the longest training day as you continue with the program because you will find it easy to do lots of training sets.

Day 5

Repeat the day that you found to be the hardest in the previous four days. This will change from week to week.

I am at 5'7 195lb. 18 YRS old, started lifting at 15 but did not lift long when I was 17 though ( about 5 months ). Not sure of measurements either. Must drop about 25-30 lbs of as much fat I can before heading out to bootcamp.

hey ryuage, when u went to your specialty school were you allowed to go to the gym??


Sorry for stealing your journal btw beastin

ryuage
05-23-2004, 09:41 AM
hehe, ya it was available on occasion. It was hard for me as I was put on a night shift and had to adjust to it going from school from 12-8 followed by physical training at about 8:30. Then it seemed we got the a** end of the deal by having to pull all the little details that had to be taken care of around the barracks. It all depends on where you go. I know at my school we still had drill instructors placed over us so... you really won't know until you get there.

05-23-2004, 10:49 AM
BigNic: Na never played sports in School. I did Shotokan Karate for 4 years and and started lifting the end of my Freshmen year in H.S. end of my Junior year I kinda stopped lifting. Ya never joined football becuase I had to work during the summer and weekends. But don't worry about "stealing my journal" man is all cool.


ryuage: Thanks man. I decided to work my *ss of since we were trashed by two DI. We had a competition here in NJ where all the stations went to a Naval Base ( forgot lococation ) and had a few competition aswell as get trashed by DIs. It was fun but it hit me that I have to get even more physically fit. Yeah, its all a mind game! I think that as long as other fellow recuits support each other in bootcamp we can survive. But I dont know I never been there. As you mentioned I will try to stay motivated just thinking that its all a learning expirience and everything in bootcamp has a purpose.

thanks

HeHe. Well energy is higher then before I started to run. I had started to run about three weeks prior to starting this journal. I feel fine at wake up but by mid-day I get slowish, usually that MRP works ( but s*ck at mixing though ) or an apple maybe even a Protein Bar. By 1700 ( 5pm) I get really hungry but jsut drink a load of water prior to eating but I still over eat. Then I just wait one hour drink protein shake again hit the gym then is 10 PM. I bet in a few more weeks Ill feel the hit more so if I start losing muscle. But thus far I feel fine. :hump:

Here is the new plan outlined. I just feel I need to up it another notch to improve my endurance.

*This plan is in addition to the regular regiment*

1. To be done everyday without exceptions.
2. Done quickly after returning from running. NO EXCUSES.


Weeks 1, Week 2, Week 3, Week 4.

/ 10-15-20-25 minutes of non stop jumping jags fast pace. ( In rug without shoes or sox, feel that burn! )

/ 10-15-20-25 minutes of stair master ( not sure wht this is called but just use a pair of stairs and go up and down.. fast w/ 8lb weights on each arm )

/ Pushups with Mil. Press. ( two reps = 1 count .. sample: 1 push up count. stop. one count of mil. press. [ stop ] two count of pushups [ stop ] two counts of mil press .. do till cant perform whole set. rest 2 minutes and start again ..till my arms can't be felt )


Update

here is a sample of the pushups workout.

| 1 SET -> 10 counts -> 110 reps

10 counts -> 1 count [ stop. 1 count mil. press ] 2 counts [ stop. 2 count mil. press ] 3 counts [ stop 3 counts mil. press ] ...and so on till 10 counts which is one full set.

Lol. Its like a drug for me or something. ( Wait I need to do one set of two rep count pushups....ah much better) Ok. Ya, I hated running and doing pushups but now I do it for fun. Its amazing how the body adopts, so now I have to do only a few pushups but more controlled.

Hey how did your surgery go?

The surgery went pretty good. They didn't put me to sleep, just used numbing medicine. Apparently my body resists lidacaine, and I spent half of the 2.5hr surgery, without any meds. They had to use a blade, scissors and a caudorizer (sp?). When the burned the blood vessels, in spots without lidacaine, I could feel the skin and nerves melting. I can honestly say its the most pain I've ever been through in my life. While I don't recommend people to go through it like I did, I would do it again, PAIN AND ALL, in a heartbeat. Regardless of the pain, it was what I wanted done, and I'm happy I did it.

Ya its not good I cant afford to get injured before bootcamp. So I best just take a day or two seehow I feel and then just start running and don't do incline unless is outdoors.

I just hate not running cause I tend to OVER eat, I feel I gotta do some form of cardio all the time.

You just had to bring all medical info, remember the recruiter's job is to just put you in. Anyhow I never had any kind of knee problems, but today I feel great and knee is not even bothering me. :p I have ran up hills and never had any kind of disconfort (sp? ) before but I guess on the tredmill can be different.

No Breakfast. I feel bloated from yesterday's meals.

Tomorrow we have IST and it will be my very first time taking my maxes: pull-ups, crunches ( 2 minute max ) , and a mile and a half timed run. I am confident that I can perform a bit above average levels but Its my very 1st time taking. However, It will be rainning all day Saturday so maybe it will be post-poned for a next week; I hope not though.

WORKOUT
Today we had our IST. Some guys needed to do one prior to shipping to basic but we all did it.

Pullups: ( slow and control ) 7 Pull ups. aiming for 8 held it for about 20 seconds but could not make it and jsut gave up.. ARG!

Crunches: 66 crunches in 2:00 minutes. Not to worry Will IMPROVE before I ship to bootcamp though.

1 1/2 Run : 10:16 Official.

It was all an individual effort but I tried to motivate others while we were running. I begun just to sing some Cadance and it got me motivated. The faster guys ran the mile and a half in just 8:46, which I can def. work towards. I started out bad cause we had so many guys together trying to pass each other. My breathing was WAY off the 1st two minutes into the run but once I started to sign those Cadance it was all good. I also had to tie my shoes which cost me a few more seconds.

06-05-2004, 06:17 PM
thanks guys. I just have to keep working at it; I really want to pull 20 pull ups before bootcamp...I want it real bad and am working like hell to get up there. But the running has really helped me since I first started running just need to push myself FURTHER. I also started to train my stomach more often too so I can hit the 100+ crunch time. Next time we do another IST ( prob. two months from last test) I want to stay on the lead with those guys they have opened my eyes to work harder.

I was just singing "Motivated * Dedicated" all the way & hell that got me pumped. Just loved the pain and civilians looking at me like I was crazy and got out of my way. :)

Stay Motivated Guys.

Good job man. I've got a question. To max out the Marine Corps PFT, it used to be 3 miles in 18min, 20 pullups and 100 pushups in 2 minutes. Have the pushups now been replaced with situps?

beastin v6
06-06-2004, 06:50 AM
Thanks.

Ya there are no pushups no more its replaced by situps which are now replaced by crunches.

But the PFT is now:
1. Max set of Pull Ups
2. Max set of crunches in 2 minutes
3. Timed 3 mile run.


PFT 100%: 300 pts. 1st class
3 MILES: 18:00
20 PULL UPS
100 CRUNCHES

Thats for male recruits only though, and the last PFT is done in week 11.

Just had to take care off several issues and had little time on the net. Sadly enough for all this time my diet and cardio has gone out the door. Not to fear! Finally graduated High School.. heh Glad thats over! All this non cardio days have made me itchy for more cardio. So here is the deal:

Due to the fact that school is over and bootcamp is nearing each and everyday ( Nov. 22nd ) I plan to run even more now. My day will look like this now:

0500 - wake up
0505 - head call
0515 - out on the streets running w/ Marine Cadance MP3s I got..!!!
0730 - back home.
0745 - head call finished
0800 - fast meal

0830 - work
1200 - lunch till 1300 ( meal 2 )
1630 - work over
1700 - meal 3

My pull ups felt easy mainly because I've lost the weight since I have not done pull ups in some time. Crunches is the same story, if I were to work my abs more often I can easily hit the 100+ mark.
