Boot Camp Training - Boot Camp Drills, Plans, Schedule

When preparing to enter Military boot camp you must be in tip top shape if you expect to make it past the first day. Not only will you need to be an endurance runner, but you'll need to be able to to old fashioned sit-ups, push-ups and so forth. Whether you are in high school looking to pursue a career in the military or middle aged, these drills, exercises and work out schedules can help you succeed and possibly excel in boot camp. The first step in getting prepared for military boot camp is mastering the basics of PFT, or Personal Fitness Test.

First, we'll start of with the most common and widely known military exercise. The push-up. If you plan on attending any type of boot camp in the military, you'll guaranteed to hear the drill instructor yell "Drop down and give me 20!" One of most beneficial things you can learn is not how many push-ups you can do, but the proper way to execute a push-up. You need to make sure your hands are about equal with your shoulders. Keep your back straight and knees locked. Then you drop down until your chest barely touches the floor. Also, when in the gym, work on your triceps, which will help you do a proper push-up.

Next and probably as common as push-ups are sit-ups. A proper sit-up is when some one is laying on their back with their knees bent at a 45 degree angle so their feet are a foot from the buttocks. Have someone sit on your feet so you can pull yourself up. If you are training alone, wedge your feet under a couch or place a 45 pound dumb bell on them. To do a proper sit-up make sure you let your self down without expending a lot of abdominal muscle usage. This is the key to doing quick and effective sit-ups.

And last but not least is running. In order to get a good time on your boot camp PFT is to practice. Seems simple enough, right? It can be if you put the time and energy into it. You'll not only pass boot camp but you'll be at the top of your class. Before you start your run, it is imperative that you stretch your leg muscles and to inhale and exhale deeply. Also keep in mind, that once you enter boot camp you'll most likely be running in military grade boots. It may be good practice to run in boots half the time you are training. This will help you not be caught of guard. Also, wear two pairs of socks so your feet don't get trashed. Wear one thin pair and one a little thicker.

If you plan on joining the military, you'll be put through these test before you can move on. If you plan on joining the Marines be aware that not only do they test for sit-ups, but they through chin-ups in the mix. Be sure to join your local gym and ask a fitness expert the best way to train for the aforementioned exercises. Don't show to boot camp with preparing or it will eat you alive!
