Hello!

I would like some advice on creating a training regime for SWCC. I have created a plan myself but am unsure if it will be best for what I would like to do. Any recommendations are appreciated. This is my current plan.
Will explain further with feedback.

Monday: Swim

Tuesday-Thursday: Weight training/ resistance training

Friday: Swim

Saturday & Sunday: Run/ cardio exercises

I’m only asking because of your intro post and your comments about having issues in the delayed entry program for the Marine Corps.

Have you spoken to a Navy recruiter yet?

I have not spoken to a navy recruiter yet. I failed out of Marine DEP a few years back. I'm 23 now.

You are going to be running a minimum of 16 miles 5 days a week during Selection. Get that mile and a half down to 9:30 and your 4 mile down to 28 minutes.

What does your swimming look like?


I put out a lot of info in my previous posts. I highly recommend looking through them. I will answer questions when I can but I’m in a bit of an intense period of training at the moment and I might be slow.

Running is something I am going to devote a lot of time to. My swimming is basic level. It's been years since I've swam. I'm signing up for a new gym next week, it has a pool. I'll take some classes to correct my form and learn new strokes then work from there.

We may not dive but we are serious “combat swimmers”. We not only spend a lot of time in the water, but we end up swimming with all of our gear on. Also, Ill just say, I passed out a couple of times during our breath holding evolutions.
Spend a lot of time in the water. Get good at treading. I don’t have time to post links to my other posts, but I go over a lot of swimming in my prior posts.


I plan on coming back to this thread and making a guide for some of these questions.
