Training For Boot Camp

There are several resources that will help you with running acceleration, stamina, push-ups, sit-ups, and pull-ups but here is a comprehensive answer to the age-old question – What do I have to do to prepare for Boot Camp? This column is a one-stop look for information on training for many of the physical occasions that happen during Boot Camp. To properly answer this broad question, the answers needs to breakdown your question into a number of different exercises as well as interval training tips to mix the whole PFT.

Mastering the PFT is absolutely the first step to getting ready for TRAINING. Push-ups – Proper push-ups will be the key to more push-ups. Placement of the hands should be just higher than shoulder width straight under your shoulder when in the UP pushup position. This will better send out the muscular involvement between the arms (triceps), upper body, and shoulders. Wider hand placement works more chest while close placement works the shoulders and triceps more.

Touch your upper body to your counter’s fist, which is about 2 inches off the floor usually. To score higher with this test, try to do your push-ups non-stop without rest and always practice them fast to get accustomed to multiple reps of push-ups workouts. Sit-ups – sit-ups or curl-ups will be tested with someone holding your foot with your knees bent.

Sit up by flexing your stomach muscles with the hands crossed over your upper body and touch your elbows to your knees. Drop your torso to the ground by comforting your abs and let gravity take you down. Usually do not waste your energy slowly allowing yourself down. This is a fitness you will need to pace.

1.5 or 2 mile timed run (Army) – Running is another pacing exercise that will require practice up to five or six times a week to be remembered as an above average runner. To move the PFT runs on the average score, weekly you still need to teach at least three times. Proper Techniques for running will include deep inhales and exhales (no shallow breathing), heel-toe rolling strike, and a straight arm swings. If you are entering the Sea or Army Corps, exercising operating in boots is also a good idea about two months from Boot Camp. Only practice about 1-2 times weekly in boot prior to Boot Camp.

Wear two pair of socks to prevent blisters. One thin polyester set against the skin and one, dense, cotton sock on the outside. The Marine Corps provides pull-ups to the PFT list, but will not test in push-ups and provides a supplementary mile to the Army’s two-mile run. Pull-ups – This is actually the ultimate exercise to check upper body power. It needs grasp strength from your forearms and hands and tugging power from your biceps and back muscles.

The proper pull-up requires your hands to be facing from you and your hands just greater than shoulder width. Pull you chin over the bar and drop back to the starting position with your arms straight and biceps calm. 3 mile timed run – This run is twice as long as most Boot Camp lab tests and requires more stamina training.

The article below will help you teach for the longer timed run. If prepared properly, you can complete this run on the same speed of the 1.5 mile timed runners of the Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard. Depending on your service Boot Camp, an obstacle be experienced by the training programs course, rope climb, going swimming, ruck marches, and use the pushup as a abuse exercise.
