Pull up bars in the barrack rooms

@matt_guinaugh

Focus on strength building instead of calisthenics and conditioning

@matt_guinaugh

Run less lift more

@billiamlee40

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

@the_lifeofnate

Make the chow hall great again

@nate.eckman

@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.

@thestayathomemarine

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

@bryanarmell

@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

@mybestlife1371

Remove the fat bodies

@jhnnyrvrs

@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..

@r3issumies

What is the song?

@kyhtt

Tattoos policy

@zaky.exe

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

@tgaribayfit

@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.

@i.chincio

@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

@crouchingtonyhiddenpanda

@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

@tgaribayfit

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

@bailey_6h

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

@jenthegawd_

The chow hall is a big problem
