@ryannn.street lmaooo


@graysonlong1 oof


Pull up bars in the barrack rooms


Focus on strength building instead of calisthenics and conditioning


Run less lift more


@jhnnyrvrs in basic, I would stick to chicken and fish, with lots of greens.




Have a big airsoft game once a month


Create a fitness center in every corps stations and effective weekly


Make the chow hall great again


@marine_jesus and if they don’t while they’re in, they’ll be forced to do it once Jette out because they’re so broke.


Sorry for the typos. That should have said I was NOT burning nearly enough calories.


@marines It would be nice if half of the chow hall wasn’t dedicated to serving pizza, cheeseburgers, and fries EVERY SINGLE DAY. Go vegan


Remove the fat bodies


@billiamlee40 are there really no healthy options in the chow hall? There aren’t any fruits and vegetables on the side?? I ship nov 4th..


What is the song?


Tattoos policy


But I have to pray 5 times a day in my religion, can’t do that in the US Military.


@i.chincio I agree with you 100% on that. I think a better starting point would be replacing the crunches in a PFT with perhaps a plank for said duration. I think we can both agree those crunches are a joke.


@tgaribayfit I get being fast is to a certain point but 3 miles with no gear? That’s not realistic he cft is great and I like it but pft ? I don’t think you have to be a power lifter but you should atleast be able to be above average


@b_valliant back strength has everything to do with supporting a kit and pack in combat conditions, and I’ve never seen a 300 PFTer let anyone down for their physical fitness


@i.chincio to be fair. Running fast is much more important to surviving than being able to deadlift 600lbs, Brotha.


Yo if you’re a pool we get off the comments.


The chow hall is a big problem


@i_am_el_rey_ HITT training


Let people with tattoo sleeves in




@anthonyfasulo_ lmfao it’s true
