    Ok, plans changed. So JB mentioned participating in the xfit games. I checked out this local gym and they offered a free session. Since free is the best price, I obliged.

    WOD, or whatever you call it...
    200m run/10 pull-ups/15 thrusters @95lbs (15 minute AMRAP)
    Completed 4 rounds and was 7 thrusters shy of completing the fifth.
    To be completely honest, this workout was fun, the environment was laid back and friendly and most of all, it was challenging. The gym is offering a very good deal for a month of membership so I may give this crossfit thing a try for that amount of time and see how I like or don't like it and go from there. Either way, I'll learn oly lifts (something I've been wanting to learn for a while now) and get a different take on things. I think a month is a fair amount of time to paint an accurate picture.

    I agree that we are all in it for the same reasons (protectin 'merica), but the chances of you seeing 50 AF dudes rucking in the desert are pretty slim.
    Although that shlt ain't fun, at all, it's a necessary evil.

    Its soooo expensive though. I have a few good friends that participate, and one that reebok pays, but its just so damn expensive. Like 150-200 a month over here. I could have my reg gym membership plus a membership to Jackson's MMA or UFC Gym or Albuquerque Kickboxing and still save 50-100 a month compared to the xfit gyms up in hur. WODS you can do on your own and in a regular well stocked gym...

    So long as the gym is legit and they are more worried about making sure form is somewhat adhered to that sounds awesome. For the type of strength and functionality you are looking for that is a legit option for certain. Those guys are pretty amazing, the ones that are serious and good at it that is.

    There was for us.

    12 miles, 35# (+rifle), under 3 hours was the EIB standard. Idk when you got out, but there is definitely a time standard now.

    I stand corrected I read somewhere that there was no time limit on retest. But upon further searching I found that 3 hours is the time limit. My bad gentlemen.

    I had a DS who had the weapons proficiency badge (which is what I assume you're talking about).

    Was a cool grey lanyard, looked awesome.

    The red and green one. This isn't the German marksmanship badge, it is different. Not quite sure.
    It requires some PT, nothing crazy. Then some random soldier skills, and some shooting. Kind of like EIB. But looks a little easier.

    Pt is : sprints, pullups, and a 1000m run.
    Swim test, NBC, first aid, pistol shoot, and road march



    Let me know if you can't see this pic

    Hmm, never seen that before.

    I'm gonna go ahead and assume the opportunity doesn't come around often.

    no worries. There's gotta be a time limit though or all of the mounted guys would have it.

    Scott, you know my feelings on scary guy badges. I see a problem both ways though. The bullshlt "I'm a marine" response when you ask someone what they do is old. Good job bro, you passed your MEPS physical and scored above a 30 on the ASVAB, now what have you DONE? Since you guys generally don't wear anything on your utilities, it's hard to tell who's who (with the exception of those pretty gold jump wings). I normally don't wear anything on my daily driver uniforms, but when I choose to, you can see that I'm somewhat seasoned and didn't spend the last decade getting my stories from CNN. The downside to badges is that people chase the badge rather than cherishing the skills that came with it.

    I'd do it for the experience. Looks easy and fun.

    That's the marksmanship one. Don't know how to spell it but it's pronounced shootzenschneer.

    Yep, it is a unique experience. I would do it, but I am ineligible due to my medical board. Bums me out.

    Lol, I know how you roll Davearino, we share the same feelings. And as for the "Im a Marine" response, youre damn right, it doesnt mean sh*t. I mean lets get real, how many Marines have you ever met that were worth their salt? Not many, and Ive deployed with or trained with thousands, and I could count on my fingers and toes the ones I really thought were shining examples of what I feel a Marine should be. And we both know I scored way higher than an a 30 man, but I get it

    I need to stop browsing on the app. I don't know who is repping who at this point. I'll get some computer time in soon to see the latest and greatest. I agree, luke is a fine pic, even if he's borderline gay.

    Youre killing me man. I just ran for the first time in over 4-5 months. One and a half miles in 15:44

    I recovered just fine but my calves were cramping up when I got out of the car...

    Only thing I lost was my guts. No biggie, just means that I tried hard enough. Shlt is more of a challenge than I expected.

    Running sucks. That's why I do it fast...to get it over with. I'm sure you'll get back down in time as long as you continue doing it. If I go a long time without running, my knees start to ache and feel wonky.

    Very taxing, depending on how competitive the person is.

    Running sucks.
    I completely agree.

    That's why I do it fast...to get it over with.
    And that's where you lost me.

    Thanks, the runs and rucks will be my of my own doing. Anything that says xfit will be prescribed WODs. I'm gonna follow their programming to get a fair assessment of it and see how it works for me. I came into it thinking negatively, like a lot of people on here do, but so far it's challenging and I like that. Hopefully I can prevent getting injured any further and get something good out of this.

    You strike me as the type of guy who would gravitate to xfit. Not because of the fact that you are gay...no that's got nothing to do with it. Just that it seems more in line with your goals.

    Yeah I see this as good for him too. I know that as I get older the idea of just being in all around amazing shape is something I am looking at more than just being as big as possible. Of course I plan on a show in March but after that I am probably going to change the focus of my training to something more along these lines. I actually find some of those grueling time workouts more rewarding than going in and doing long rest periods for beach muscle. Don't get me wrong though I love working for beach muscle too but I think I have plenty of that and it isn't going to go away any time soon.

    Totally get where you are coming from. I hate being out of breath though. You know... just in case something pops off that's my excuse anyway lol.

    The elite guys/gals in Crossfit are beasts. The rest of them are average at a lot things and excellent at hurting themselves. A girl I know just competed in her first cross fit competition in Albuquerque, and she said her competitors form was scary. She thought for sure someone was going to seriously injure themselves.

    Para, in your case you should totally try it as you'd excel at it and maybe teach someone something along the way.

    Been doing CF for about 2.5 years now, mixing it in about 1 to 2 days a week. Haters be damned, it's a great workout!

    cannot the same be said for many old-fashioned "bb'ers" tho?
    how many guys do you see hurting themselves from slinging weights around that they simply have no business handling to begin with?
    and the elite guys as well are typically beasts
