Just started Nick Koumalatsos's 12 week Marine Raider Prep to better prepare for A&S in about a year hopefully. Just seeing the results I can get from his program. I will post progress reports on this thread about how the program is and, my results.
It's a good program so far just wish it had more endurance type workouts but I usually just add more cardio after. For me it's not too hard to manage since I usually get off at 1600 then workout, but we just got back from the field so it's pretty relaxed for me right now.
I just started week 6. It was hard adjusting to it during the first week or so (I’m more of a swimmer/distance runner so the lifting was a break off). I started, weighing around 155 and I’m now at 167 and I definitely feel stronger. Overall, it’s been great.
I’ll add that consistently foam rolling multiple times a day as well as good nutrition and hydration has helped immensely with it being hot as shit outside.
