It looks like I’m gonna be heading down to Quantico in September for OCS. Final word hasn’t come out yet but my OSO says my application package looks real good.
Right now I’m a 274 PFTer. 20 pull ups, 90 situps(had a shit day doing them…no excuses), 20:30 3 mile time. Still working my ass off, and hoping to be in the high 280’s or low 290’s on my pre-ship PFT.
My usual week of PT is basically 5-6 days of running alternating between longer runs (5 or 6 miles), shorter runs (2 or 3 miles) and speed work (hills and 400m sprints). Situps and other ab work 4-5 days a week, pull ups 5 days a week, and other Marine Corps type stuff thrown in at my discretion, ie mountain climbers, body builders, etc.
I’d like to incorporate some weight training into my PT, but don’t want to get into a program that will interfere too much with my running training (my goal is to ship with a 3 mile time in the high 18’s or low 19’s). But I love to lift, so if its feasible I want to throw in some weight training.
Anyone who has been to OCS, Boot Camp, or has experience with this type of training please feel free to weigh in I appreciate any and all constructive responses.
