    - 6:00 shake
    -8:00 weight training/ full body
    o 20lbs bicep curls, triceps, butterflies, shoulders 15 reps 3 sets
    o 10lbs 20 bicep curls, 20 hammers, and 20 of this other for of bicep curl I don't know the name of lol, 15 shoulders 15 butterflies 5 sets

    o wide push-ups 12reps 5sets, elbows in push-ups 10 reps 5 sets, diamond push-ups 10 reps 5 sets
    o I do 3 types of dips don't exactly know the names but they work, they are all 15 reps and 5 sets

    -10:00 shake

    Day 7
    - swimming for an hour, other than that nutrition plan is the same and I rest on everything else.

    It's sad that I don't know the names of some of these exercises so I just made up some names. But any comments or advice please leave and any other training recommendations. Thanks

    Not to familiar with them but id give yourself atleast a couple days of rest.

    Other than that im sure the typical running, swimming, calisthenics/body weight exercises would work. Id assume you would have to be more worried about the para school than basic.

    Agreed with 3clipse. Boot camp is cake..just do push ups and run and you'll be good. Find out what your qualifying score has to be for your PT test and just be able to do that from day 1. There's a military.com page that has a huge list of workouts tailored specifically to different schooling/ratings/mos/ect that you may look into.

    As I mentioned before swimming is going to be huge for you for pararescue. I mean extremely huge. A good portion of that pipeline will have you in the water greater than 50% of your day. You are going to need to be able to run, push up, pull up, sit up and lots lots more immediately out of the water. So, you need to be good enough not to expend all your energy in there.

    My pipeline, which is similar the screening just to get your application approved to go and get screened again was:

    500m swim under 12 min
    Push ups 42 minimum
    Sit ups 60 minimum
    Pull ups 6 minimum
    1.5 mile run in boots and uniform under 11 min
    *just being able to do the minimums isn't going to give good chances of passing the training to be honest.

    Then...
    Push ups
    Sit ups
    Mountain climbers
    8 count bodybuilders
    Flutter kicks
    *no minimum just looking for max effort

    Lastly,
    4 miles, 60lbs ruck in under 50min in bouts and uniform.

    I haven't looked at PJ's screening and pipeline in quite some time. That being said, you can expect similar deal as I wrote above. Even if your initial screening is only comprised of swim run push ups pull ups sit ups. Expect a tougher screening at start of training.

    I also do not know if you are able to go straight in PJ selection from boot camp. That would be something I look into.

    I'm not a fan of putting weights on extremities while exercising. If you want to add more weight get a better vest, I like the X-Vest personally.

    Its better to keep the weight closer to your torso and wont strain the joints as much.

    Swim more. At least 3x a week. Low Bw and high strength / weight ratio with extreme endurance should be your goal

    Super informative. PJ has a 90% washout rate, and the majority of that has to do with the amount of time you spend in the water. But don't let that discourage you by any mean. Plan a routine that incorporates what is listed above and keep pushing to meet those standards and even exceed them. Also spend a great deal of time in the water, swimming different distances and getting used to being under. Also to piggy-back, a lot of this stuff is going to be in uniform, and when it's wet, it's heavy! So if you're going for a run or swim (if possible) get used to wearing clothes to simulate the weight a soaked uniform will add. And if you have boots lying around, run in them. The sooner your feet get used to running in boots the better. Soaked/sweaty feet running in boots will jack them up until your feet start getting used to it!

    I agree with this as well.. If you can profit a weighted vest of some sort it will help you get somewhat used to wearing body armor during runs/exercises!
