You in army training?? Or.....is this your own stay in shape fit program.... 88)

I'm just asking....

I may just put the vest on again and see how far I can get..but I think I'll start with maybe 20lbs first..and tell loved ones the route I'm taking...... :dubious:

Yeah I'm in the army, but it's self directed PT. Running with a gas mask is normally taught to us fairly early on in our careers as a COCK tool.

There's usually no shortage of dudes running, lifting weights or pulling trucks with gas masks on, on bases where there is any sort of gunfighters. Especially when deployment fever hits. Lot's of people say it doesn't help at all but I've been doing mask runs for a while and I think it's helped me a ton.

But I have to ask.....What exactley does this mean... "Running with a gas mask is normally taught to us fairly early on in our careers as a COCK tool. "

Let's just say the soldier who has trouble keeping his kit squared away may find himself donning his gas mask for a random unscheduled physical training session.

This is for another post, but just as an unrelated side boob, I could not be told to run with a mask because my shirt was wrinkly. I'd tell the boss to eat balls inside of a minute. I honestly don't know how you guys in the military live like that. But I admire you for doing so.

Realisticly that stuff only happens in your first 6 months and then once more on your leadership course. If I went into work on a random Tuesday and my boss told me to mask up or made me do pushup's he would quickly be told to get fucked. The old army is dying and this shit thankfully doesn't happen anymore.

Just curious...and you may not remember but.....

Back in your Police Academy days....if you were in formation and your Drill guy told you to drop and give 20 (30, 40) for ...whatever reason....you wouldn't have done it there??

How would that go over at the Academy if you said...No.

Has anyone been to Academy Training and had a guy (gal maybe) say...Screw You...I'm not doing 20......

Ahhhh the filthy fifty.................makes sense. I actually made a little book of programs that I copied and pasted from a crossfit website and neglected to copy the names of the programs themselves. Im going to been adding more programs to the collection and ill be sure to include the names as its easier to refer to them by name than content. The filthy fifty itself was definitely a good program but not my favorite so far. I prefer ones with a bit more running intervals or rowing and such. I like the idea of going from something that putting me in a lactic state like pullups or lunges than jumping on a treadmill or rowing machine and recovering only to have to repeat a few more times. Its almost like chasing a high...........................a natural one that is. 8) .

BTW thats a lot of rounds in 20 minutes for Cindy. I don't think I will fair as well as pull ups are my nemesis..............this is why I am forcing myself to do programs like this as its always been my weak spot for me. Do they make you do pull-ups at OPC??????????????//im thinking they do
