    Pre-Military Workout Routine?

    Next semester i'm joining the Canadian Malitia as a highschool co-op course (meaning i get military training for a whole 5 months and still get 4 credits ) anyways it starts at the end of febuary and i've been training since september working on my strength and a little bit on endurance, but now as it approaches i want to be completely ready for whatever it throws at me because during the first 2 weeks they try to weed out the weak ones because you get 5000$ if you complete the entire course. So can anyone suggest some training to do where i can still body build yet get ridiculous endurance.

    Any type of military training involves endurance. You'll also do bodyweight exercises, like chinups, pushups, and situps.

    I'd suggest you start running, now. I'd also suggest you forget bodybuilding training for now; little of it will translate to what you need to be doing. Run.
    No brain, no gain.

    You can't out-train bad nutrition.

    Run, a lot, do sprints, medium, and long distance, as well as some very long distance hikes.
    Work up to a very high volume of Push Ups, Sit Ups, and Pull Ups.

    Once you can do the above en masse, in your sleep, add in additional body weight work such as dips, bodyweight squats, handstand push ups, one legged push ups, and one legged squats.

    Weightlifting isn't really going to do much for you as far as getting through boot camp. Once you get done, and once you know what will be expected of you from a PT standpoint, then you can start lifting weights again. Until then it's not going to help you. Some brief lifting sessions once or twice a week would probably be fine, but you need to focus most of your energy on doing exercises that will make your drill sergeant happy.

    Also make sure you come in with the correct weight. To light or to heavy and you will regret being alive based on what they make you eat to get your weight where they want it. Good luck.

    Pretty much what everyone here said. Military fitness is more based on traditional calistenics and endurance exercises rather than lifting heavy weights. Running, situps, pullups and pushups should be your main focus. However, if you're already in good BBing shape, mostly likely you're far strong enough, you just need to work on endurance and probably some running.

    After you get through initial training, however, you will be able to start BBing again.

    I'd suggest www.crossfit.com + running.

    You want to train specifically for what will be expected in boot camp.
    Pullups, pushups, squat thrusts, mountain climbers, etc...
    "Suffer the pain of discipline or suffer the pain of regret."

    Training regularly but no progress?
    You need one or more of these: more food, more weight, more reps or more rest.

    You really are a registerd douche bag . Running 5+ miles a day with 50 pound packs on and doing pushups until your arms fall off don't sound too easy to me. Even though we don't shoot things as much as other armies we still get trained to be ready to kill.

    Your first priority is to be able to nail the PT requirements for the military branch you're joining - not just the minimum, but the top scores. Expect boot camp to be a lot of cardio, and no lifting. Running & bodyweight exercises. If/when you're rock-solid with those, then there's no problem also working in a bulking/building routine.

    the Canadian army is the most fit army in the world and at the end of basic training you have to tun 17k with a 50lbs rucksack

    i used to lift alot 5-6 days a week, and about 6 months before i left for basic training i quit hitting the heavy weights and focused more on cardio and body weight excersizes, and still used lighter weights with more reps to keep a good pump and build the muscular endurance... It was sad to see my muscle mass go down the drain but it needed to be done... THERE ARE NO GYMS IN BASIC TRAINING!!... your best bet is to search the internet for your PT requirement and push yourself to excel those before you even go... MOTIVATION IS THE KEY TO MILITARY SUCCESS!!! Good luck my man, stay safe and most of all stay motivated

    oh and p.s. as far as eating goes... stay away from sweets, as well as late night snacks. And also your sleep cycle i would recommend waking up early and working out to train your body before you go... follow these words of advise and your training will be that much easier and less stressful. I always expect the worst when i am training for something and that keeps me motivated and makes it easier come the time to actually complete my mission

    I would suggest toughening up your feet. Get a pair of boots and get used to walking long distances under a heavy load in them. A lot of people got really bad blisters in basic from not preparing their feet.

    Endurance is the key. Running, rucking, body weight excercises all that good stuff.

    You sir, seriously have the wrong attitude towards joining the military. No patriotism, no love for other people, no defending our country, or helping those in need. And I signed myself up for this website JUST to tell you that you have the WRONG attitude. You want to join to shoot guns and kill people. That is not going to get you far in the military IF you make it in. Which would be for the best if you didnt.
