  1. Hello All, I'm an Army Reservist and the Army is switching to a new fitness test, the Army Combat Fitness Test (ACFT), which can be read about here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Army_Combat_Fitness_Test One of the events is a trap-bar deadlift, 3 rep, max weight, and score is based on the weight. My question, what's best set / rep scheme to build for that type of event? Me: early 40's, have a basement and decent little home gym there, even bought myself a trap bar similar to what Army's going to use. How I work out: Short stre
  2. Hey. Sorry this is long. I have a lot to say. If you want to cut to the chase, I won't be offended if you skip to the bottom. I really want to adopt a Paleo lifestyle, but I have a dilemma. A big one. The LONG Version: I live in a tiny barracks room. Yes I'm a member of the U.S. Armed Forces, active duty. When I say "tiny barracks room" think college dorm. Or smaller. I have one room key that opens to a shared bedroom with two beds. I can see my roommate's bed from my bed. There is no room divider. She has to walk past the foot of my bed and in front of the refrigerator (simultaneously) to
  3. So, this beginning is catching me in a situation where i feel i have the excuse not to worry about health. But i thought about it alot before writing and i realized that that can be said about a lot of points in my life. if i won't face it when its hard, i will find myself even fatter in 5 years. I'm at a week holiday vacation from the army (not U.S.A) and everybody around me thinks i should gather my forces. meaning they wont say anything when I'm eating ice-cream and binge watching legends of tomorrow. But if i wont start now, sure as hell won't start well I'm at the base, far from hom
  4. SECOND VERSE SAME AS THE FIRST! 1. Do physical therapy 2. Eat gluten free 3. Write good things BONUS - Do things THUMBS UP.
  5. If you keep track of your workouts and enjoy the feeling of writing something down as opposed to inputting numbers on your phone, then do I have the product for you! It's a mystery as to how this notebook came into the hands of the military, as most things we get issued come in two conditions: broken or useless. It's highly coveted, often tactically acquired from the "cool" supply guy. It's this: Behold it's glory. The green notebook. It's durable, lightweight and the perfect size to throw in a bag. The paper takes ink very well and if you are so inclined, it does fantastically with
  6. I decided to jump back into the challenges. A little last minute, but I hope it's the right decision. I was considering taking a break or at most jumping to the accoutabuddies to do some even more last minute cramming pre college. Maybe that AA degree would look cool on my wall, but would it benefit me more than something else I cold get done with the work and time I have right now? I know my mom would be upset, but given the choice between what to do with the few hours I have after work and the realistic amount of motivation I could put into a goal, rehabbing my body is always going to t
  7. Hello all! I'm new to this. A little about me: I am 21 years old and just enlisted into the Army National Guard a couple of months ago, and I am in search of an actual program to help me to get fit for Basic Training in January and onwards. Naturally, I've been running, push-ups and sit-ups. But every time I go to drill every month, I fail the practice PT exam. So if any of you wonderful people can help me out, It'd be greatly appreciated! (:
  8. My brother is joining the reserves it seems. He is a fit fellow (personal trainer, baseball player etc...) and has no problem with the strength department. But he hates to run. And Basic.... has some running. Now I've done Basic training myself, but I'm not Army. I was wondering if anyone who is/was Army had any tricks and tips I could pass on to my brother? Not even just about the running aspect either. thanks
  9. Up at 0400 this morning to run the 1/2 mile to meet a friend at the gym. She was late, but as I was already on a compressed timeline, I went ahead and knocked out 4 sets of 10 reps of wide grip lat pull downs cable on the cable station. In between each set I managed 10 wood chops at navel height for a total of 4 sets. She finally showed up and I finished out (I told you it was a compressed schedule :-P) with 1x 1 minute full plank, 25 free-foot sit-ups (ie, nothing to keep my feet down - really works the core), and 1 more 1 minute full plank. Then I ran back to get ready for work. I am s
  10. Looking for other military nerds who can help each other keep in check. I'm an active duty Marine, so I believe in once and always, so it doesn't matter to me if you're a Poolee, Recruit, Active, Reserve, Retired, Spouse, Brat, whatever. This will give us a venue to complain about how our Unit's PT just isn't quite cutting it for us, how the 1st Sgt still has his head up his butt, and talk royal smack to each other for falling off our goals. I'll start even if there's no interest: Active Duty Marine Sergeant, been in for about 7 1/2 years. Currently stationed at Parris Island (no, no

  12. Hello and welcome, I do not know if there are any of these threads currently going, but I thought I would start one regardless. The point of this thread is for a base camp for those Australian Nerd Fitness Rebels. There are probably more of us in your home city than you are aware of....... Use this a point of reference to find people in you are who maybe training for a similar event, a similar goal or are just looking for some one to train with or share information and gain knowledge and wisdom. Share you goals, ambitions and dreams with us, so that we can join you on your journey and make
