“Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming ‘”I lived it to the full!'”

1 the first minute 2 the second minute 3 the third…until you can no longer continue.
Then pick a finisher such as 400m l-sit, or the like.

So I finished boot camp last week and you will be pleased to hear that the physical training aspect was by far the easiest part. I blame Crossfit!:-)
Every morning we would get up and do morning calisthenics. They were a nice warm up. It was on a rotating schedule so one day we would do static type exercises like prone bridge, pyramid pushups, sea turtles, squats and lunges. The next day we basically did a Crossfit work out! It was great! It was 8 minutes at a station that was pulling weight sleds or exercise bike or a conglomeration of all my favorite Crossfit stuff like pull ups, box jumps and burpees (which I constantly was corrected on. The military does them wrong.) The third day was running, push ups and sit ups. Nothing to special.
It wasn’t bad at all, but the whole summer PT regimen culminated in one day of pain. We were up at 3:30 and packed 35 pounds of gear into a pack which we lugged about all day while running hills, doing pushups and squats and the whole nine yards. It was a great time. Last on the agenda was a 7 mile forced march at around 6 pm. Haha made for a long day.
Anyways, I mean to say all this to let you all know I’m doing fine, I was well prepared for the summer and to give you a few ideas for a grueling, alternative workout. Tell everyone at the club I say hey and I’ll see you Thanksgiving.
