Good luck, to go from 10 chins to 30 pullups in 6 weeks is going to take a lot of work, I hope you're close to that number already!


You ran a mile and a half in 7:42?

Thats impressive.


Outstanding. Keep your eye on the prize and train hard. We're pulling for you.


Yeah baby. Yesterday i did a mile in 5min flat in Army boots and uniform. Thanks for the support guys. My method will be acumilation, little everyday until my recovery skyrockets. Ill post a sample program later.

Keep Focused.


Sorry i had the meassurements wrong! I did the mile in 7:42. I did 2/3mile in 5min


I went to the SWTC SERE. Being a SERE instructor would not be my idea of a good job. Why not be a PJ?


How do you go from 10 Pull-ups to 30 Pull-ups in only 6 weeks?

I don't get how that happens....(gets out calculator, graph paper....reads charts...finishes book by Siff, talks to two nationally ranked Gymnasts).

Sorry...it can't be done.


Zeb, is so right. There is no way you go from 10 to 30 in six weeks. Adding 5 to 10 pullups is a stretch.


It is a long shot no doubt but its my goal. I may not achieve it in 6 weeks but maybe at the end of 2006.


Don't forget you have six weeks of BASIC before you get to your Indoc Course let alone the real SERE training.

I saw a few guys add 15+ pullups in Basic and that's only 6 weeks.

But I agree with what someone else said, why SERE? SERE wouldn't be my choice, PJ or CCT would be.
