well, i was just curious, with all the metal imagery consisting of so many "musclebands"(manowar, venom, hammerfall etc) who try to look so tough and "heavy", and having muscly band members is a must.

i do, for health and looking good.

I'm going back into the military. Have to train for BUDS (Navy Seal Selection). Have lots and I mean lots of fucking work to do.

wish u luck bruh, always wanted to join the forces but somehow am scared of the training., so i can make no soldier

Training was my favorite party. Just need to know that you won't die.

How many pushup you can do up to a time ? or in 2 minutes... I heard the army training hard pushup many as you can in 2 minutes... : )


We used to do as many as you can do in two minutes without rest. My highest was 119. Now I am lucky if i'll hit 30.

Wow, nice bro : ))) . My highest was 70. Now I only can reach to 40 as to the most. Not bad, right ? It's nice information, motivating me to continue

good luck, train HARD. i had a roommate who was going to go seal, dude was pretty bad ass. his dad was a master sergeant in the USArmy, stationed in Korea. received Kenpo training from a legit grand master. could floor other shipmates with the one-inch punch, insisting we use a pillow as some form of padding... his idea of of a jog was the 15mi run down to the beach at the USAF race.

lost contact after completion of my service.

Haha yeah eventually I did ask for smaller portions. My muscle isn't fatty thankfully. I'm in really good shape...I run 3 miles 3 times a week and I also do various weight exercises (on machines and free weights), pushups & situps/ crunches. I think I eventually did lose an inch on my waist though because I don't eat like I did while in OTS.

I had to do this crazy PT test this past Friday and was sore for like 3 days after. It's called the Fighter Aircrew Conditioning Test (FACT) and the amount of weight you have to lift is based on how much you weigh. I almost passed it but couldn't do all the reps for 2 of the exercises. My score was in the upper end of the excellent category but if you don't meet minimums for each component of the test then it doesn't count. We have to take it again about half way through training so hopefully I'll be able to pass it. The one we took this past Friday was just to see where we were at. The one we take again is the one that counts if we want to get selected for fighter jets!

The FACT is:
strength exercises...minimum of 10 reps and maximum of 15 reps. Each rep is done in a 6 second count meaning it will take a full minute to do just 10 reps.
arm curl - 35% of your body weight (I did 11 reps at 45 lbs)
bench press - 80% of your body weight (I did 7 reps at 110 lbs)
lat pull - 70% of your body weight (I did 9.5 reps at 90 lbs...not exactly 70% of my body weight, we just have to go with what the machine has)
leg press - 160% of your body weight (I did 10 reps at 220 lbs)
leg curl - 50% of your body weight (I did 10 reps at 70 lbs)

endurance exercises. You have a minute to complete each of these. These are done after the strength exercises.
pushups - minimum of 20 and maximum of 50 (I did 40...could have pushed myself to do more but was pretty tired after the strength exercises so I figured 40 was a good number)
crunches - minimum of 30 and maximum of 50 (I did 50)
squats - minimum of 20 and maximum of 50 (I did 50)
and in between every single exercise (strength and endurance) you get only a minute to rest.

Yeah, this test is way harder than the Air Force PFA...the PFA is a joke compared to the FACT! The PFA is a 1.5 mile run, pushups, situps and waist measurement. How fast you have to run and how many pushups & situps is determined by your age. But at the same time, you'd be surprised at how many people fail the PFA. I've taken the PFA like 8 times already and scored in the excellent category each time. I have to take it again this Friday...ugh, I'm in training so I guess they want to make sure we're staying fit by making us test all the time lol Normally if you score in the excellent category you only have to take it once a year. If not in excellent category then you take it once every 6 months. If you fail it, you only get so many retests before they kick your ass out!

Wooooooow, it sounds a lot of fun in army workout. I somewhat confidently guess I can pass the minimum score as MetallicA mentioning above, yeah could be also if pushing. I run not so well, I cant run fast, though for long length running may I can last. It is nice thing in army training is that it harden your strength and endurance with a some specific mandatory record. It also helps you in good shape. But in workout life general, what tears me apart is I always get in between choices, shape or strength. If workout for strength then you can make it all through all exercise types, but if for being in wanted shape, you need certain pattern for the fitness. Which compelling and tightening you, get confined to some extent.

Road cyclist is very healthy sport for endurance and strength, it keeps you for shape too : ) . I usual ride bike a lot when in high school, it makes my feet very strong,.. now even with workout I rarely and feel leg workout is not much of variety to practice.

@Brothers Forever - yeah very true. It seems like you're either good at the strength exercises or the cardio exercises. I can do pushups and situps all day long but I freakin suck at running fast. (I guess I still run faster than most Americans though, freakin fatasses haha) There are people who can run stupid fast all day long but have absolutely no upper body strength. I guess I'm pretty balanced but running is definitely my weaker point.

Bikes are great too. I used to ride bikes all the time when I was a kid & a teenager...not for working out but just to get places since I wasn't old enough to drive yet lol

@Graywizzard - screw them! Go to the gym if you want. You won't end up being a douche just by going

I voted "both of the above" because I like to stay in shape but also look good for the ladies! It's too bad the only ladies I deal with are over the phone, so they can't even see if I'm fit or not! HA!
