minutes but get it under 14 30 or if you can beat some of the guys beat some of the guys alright once a month you should be doing a pool function or you should be getting together with the other police all right you should say okay this guy's been faster than me for months I need to get on his heels or passing all right we should be progressing every month all right so mile and a half run

  1. chin ups are allowed go google it

  2. chin ups are not allowed they must be dead hang pull ups where you lift your chin completely above the bar and come down to a complete dead hang where your arms are straight.

  3. good luck in joining and no matter physical or mental don't give up

  4. good luck in joining and no matter physical or mental don't give up

  5. Guys,

    Get in shape if you wanna join the Army. Trust me. Nothing worse than being that fat, slow guy, that anyone is starting to hate, because they have to do push-ups the whole day trough because you're out of shape and too fucking slow on the parcours.

  6. I'm 21 right now and gained weight since high school athletics… I would had been ready to go right into the pool if I would just visited that recruiter after graduating. Now I'm 35 lbs heavier… time to get in the best shape of my life.

  7. Do you know if since 0311's don't get promoted that much and in that case they'll most likely be honorably discharged if after they're discharged can they join the Army (Ranger)?

  8. How many pull ups and sit ups should I do before going to boot camp

  9. Good video sir

  10. Make sure you save all medical documents first off the more you have to show the recruiter the better, things that will hinder you are things like any kind of surgeries, knee problems, heart issues, concussion if it's a continued thing, all medical questions can be answered by the recruiter or MEPS doctor.

  11. i am a sophomore in high school and 15 years old. I can run a mile in 6:15, i can do about 15 pull ups, and a lot of crunches. I play football and track.I do very well in school. What things can limit me when joining the marines as far as injuries. I hurt my neck when i was younger and stretched one of my ligaments but i still can play football and it never bothers me unless it gets hurt. But do concussions or anything like that stop you from joining?

  12. Anytime and good luck on joining.

  13. Thanks this helps

  14. Thank you

  15. I would definatly look at your running shoes and make sure your really stretching good before you run especially the hip flexor muscle and quads and hamstring, that could be why your thighs are hurting. Interval training ie.. sprints short distance and just running using good form will help improve your time do what you can at first and then try to push for a little more than what you started. Crunches help when your practice do full sit ups (chest to knee's) and core excersises to improve.

  16. My run time freaking sucks 14:40 :/ my arm hang is 50 sec and crunches 73. Any running tips cause my thighs start hurting/burning a little after a mile.

  17. Best thing to do is take all your medical paper work on the pectus excavatum to the recruiting office they can call/fax your paper work to MEPS and the MEPS Doc can get you definite answer if not that day with a day or two. Maybe call first to save on gas, ask to speak with Staff Non-Commisioned Officer in Charge.

  18. I have pectus excavatum (sunken chest), have you had any recruits with this condition? Mine is pretty mild and doesn't give me any problems. I got checked by cardiologist and he said my heart was 100% healthy and normal as are my lungs. Thanks

  19. I can do 20 pullups, a bunch of crunches, and I can run a mile in 7:30. The problem is that I'm a short and skinny guy. Will that screw me over? Any experience with small guys during bootcamp? Any advice would be appreciated! Subscribed.

  20. I would run about a mile and a half to two miles every other day. Do crunches/sit ups everyday mon-fri do as many push ups and pull ups during the day everyday mon-fri take the weekends off for recovery. The cool thing about a lot of recruiting offices they usually have workouts with all the guy/girls going to boot camp soon at least 3x a week check it out.

  21. 1 more thing I'm trying find a work out plan I'm out of shape but not fat I'm trying to be ready in a month any suggestions

  22. yes, if i was you i would study basic's up to Alg. 1,

  23. Is the math part of the asvab really difficult

  24. Diet and cardio, watch what your eating ie.. starches sugars and saturated fats and quit drinking soda if you do and increase your cardio ie.. running, elliptical, crunches, jumping rope, about 30 mins everyday but you don't wanna loose more than 2 pounds a week it ain't healthy. Get with a local recruiter and see if you can't work out with them once or twice a week to get an idea about more workouts. The tattoo shouldn't be a problem as long as it's not gang related.

  25. You will sign up for Infantry Option Military Occupational Specialty of 03XX and you will get what we call designated after boot camp at Infantry Training Battalion ( The School for Infantry Marines). Does that make sense?

  26. New Video will be out next week.

  27. Thanks for your informative videos, please make more. I'm trying to learn some more about the USMC because I have a friend in the USMC, I'm trying to learn more so I can understand it better since I know nothing about it 🙂
