Alright, back. Been doing alot of running. I know TRADOC loves AGRs, so I figured that I need to prepare for inevitable. It looks like I'll be breaking up AIT/ABN and SFAS instead of doing it Rep-63/18x style. That is a huge benefit as 3 of my friends that did the SOPC route all ended up getting medically discharged (necrosis, broken hip, severe stress fractures). Granted none really prepared all that well, but the healthier I can stay through selection/Q the better.
BTW if anyone has any pre-read material for 21B, Sapper, or general combat engineer stuff, hit me up. I want to blow that course away.
3x10 min tempos @ 7:30 pace w/ 4 min rest (best pace I could keep while holding a conversation)
3x12 min tempo same as above
Off (work came up)
Squat: worked up to 280x3, back off 225x8 w/ pause at bottom
Bench: worked up to 230x3, back off with 205x8 w/ pause at bottom
Pendlay Row: worked up to 165x3, back off with 135x8 (really focused on scap retraction)
Seated Hammer Curl/Press: 3x10 @ 40#
Everything felt REALLY easy and smooth
20min HICT on spin bike
lots of walking, day drinking, and lifting female friends lol
I've also begun hitting the neck harness and band pullaparts every commercial break when I watch TV. I'm hoping for 19" by the time I ship out (earmuffs). Also do chinups/pushups every AM and alot of MOB'ing using MOA's guide and some mwod stuff.
