    Ways To Prepare

    Hello, I am 15 and I have been wanting to become a marine since I was 8. I am hoping I will be a grunt but that isnít totally up to me. I am getting low on time to prepare. I was wondering if you guys had good ways to prepare. Mentally and physically. I am trying to graduate early and join at 17.

    keep your nose clean, stay out of trouble, don't even be close to being in dutch with the cops, push-ups, stomach crunches, pull-ups, stretching exercises, and running, get your 3 mile run time to as low as you can, and when you think it's good, try to make it even lower.
    good luck

    Youtube is your friend. There are tons of videos on how to prepare for USMC bootcamp.

    Just run run run and do sprints. I focused on calisthenics so mostly just body weight exercises like pull ups squats etc. hike with some weight too for a few miles a week. Don’t overtrain

    If you’re looking to go infantry practice hiking, I’m here at ITB for 2 months and we take everything with us. Just get used to pain and embrace the suck.
