I'm going active duty USMC on Monday. 3 months to get ready for afghanistan. I'm a pack mule for a sniper platoon. (I'm a machine gunner, they need a machine gunner for rear security.... I'm the oldest junior machine gunner in the company so I'm the best fit and I'm big so good pack mule) If I fail out of a run, I'm fucked. and by fucked I mean no recommendation for marsoc. Thrown into a different platoon halfway through build up due to being a failure..... not exactly inspiring confidence in my fellow Marines. This isn't getting strongner, its attempting to mantain what I have. So with that in mind. I know I"ve got to lift. but if I lift crazy I'm going to get screwed on Monday morning when they do the make the drinkers puke workout they seem to do every week. I'll be lifting hopefully Saturday morning/afternoons. I will be running a lot, and walking around with a lot of weight, a lot. I'm carrying 50 lbs of armor give or take (haven't seen it yet I get it on Monday) and A saw (probably) So yeah what should I do? I was thinking alternate days (if I get to lift 2 times in a week I'll do both if not every other week) Primary deadlift 5X3 Press 3X5 Supplement Cable Row (suggestions on reps/sets) Single leg squats 3X15 each leg need one more B workout Squat 5X5 Sumo deadlift high pull 3X10 (first set is a warm up at 95 then try to get 145, usually get 10 the first set 8 or so the 2nd) dumbbell bench 3X8 (just going to do 90 lbs to mantain worrying about getting tired here) shrugs 3X8 Weighted pull ups 3X8 My worry here is overtraining. So this is more or less mantenance. The deadlift/squat I haven't gone real heavy in a while due to being hurt so I can without wearing myself down get back to 90% of where I was before getting hurt. The press I suck at I"m going to try to get that higher. Everythingn else is just mantaining. I know bench is usually a primary but I'm planning on lifting it like a supplementary. (can't really do barbell bench due to an injury) If I'm being retarded say so, if this makes relative sense tell me. If I need to change something tell me why. I'm really trying not to wear myself out.
