Yes, you can get the recruiter to give you the asvab without signing up. They have to because you need to know your scores before you can even go to MEPS to sign a contract or else how the hell would they know what you are qualified to do? Just tell the recruiter you are thinking about joining, you are serious but you don't want him showing up at your door or calling you every week. Then tell him you want to take the ASVAB so that you can find out what you qualify for. Any recruiter can give the test so if one of them says no, find one who will schedule you for the test.

Taking the test does NOT obligate you to anyone or anything.

Run. You can't study for the ASVAB but you can improve those run times stud. Start the following workout routine for your run...

Track Workout
On a regulation 400m track run one lap as fast as you can then walk 100m, then run two laps as fast as you can, then walk 100m. repeat this cycle 4 or 5 times. Do it every other day and in between on the other days run 2 miles for time or run at a slow steady pace for at least 30 minutes.

Monday- 3 miles for time

Tuesday- track workout

Wednesday- 30-45 min run

Thursday- track workout

Friday- 30-45 min run

Do not cheat yourself. You should be puking during this track workout, if not, then you are being a puss and need to grab your sack and RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN!!!!

Run in the rain, run in the snow... get used to it now. They won't cancel PT because of the weather Chyl. Don't make excuses, just get er done if this is something you really want.

IMPROVISE

ADAPT

OVERCOME

Its not just a phrase, its the way of life for a warrior.

Ive been running ont he treadmill, because right now we can leave the house, I can get a ticket and it is just general unsafe for me to go out.

Im not trying to make excuses, If anyone lives in the Dallas area. They will know what im talking about. We have Massive Flooding.


Here is a picture taken by the News only three blocks away from my house, if the flood waters rise anymore we will have to leave our home. We already have water up to our pourch.

As soon as you can get off the treadmill and run. IT is very different. Put the treadmill on MAX incline and run 6-7 minute miles till you puke, then run another mile.

Tread mill seems a proper fall back for yeh with the conditions you posted.

But there's other work to do too. You've listed the hi speed, low drag options in your choice picks.

You want all over endurance. You want toughness, you want mean that you can dig into when you're too tired to fart and too whipped to think.

Calistenics, lots of em. Bends and thrusts, mountain climbers, getup getdowns, sit ups, crunches, leg lifts, push ups, crunches, leg lifts, pushups, side straddle hops, push ups, leg lifts, high steps (hands behind head, bring left knee up to meet your right elbow coming down and across, then right knee to meet left elbow, repeat quickly, even faster, like you're running in place till you want to puke) push ups, leg lifts, sit ups, push ups...did I mention leg lifts and push ups?

Also, sit down and grab your nutsack and self check. Do you have it in you to be miserable, go without sufficient sleep and food for days on end and not only keep focused and doing your job, but not whine like a ruptured c**t? How do you feel about still being awake at 3 AM and looking at yet another 10 mile hump before you get even the possibility of an hour or so sleep, for the 3rd day in a row?

Life is hard even without making the choice to live the hard life. This aint about ego or what looked cool on TV. You'll be in a world where the kind of tired you'll feel dont even exist in the civilian world. And, while you're dealing with all that soul breaking fatigue, pain and misery, you'll need to be sharp, focused and "on time, on target" all the time, every time.

It's not a bad thing at all to want to go hard, but you dang well better understand that if you dont make the cut, you still serve out your contract.

I understand, Ive fallen out of my physical Conditioning, my prevouse 3 mile time was under 18 min, and i have over 20 pull ups and 100 sit ups...but like many other people In America I became Lazy, I have to push myself and i know that, and Im working on it, When im not working, i work out, when im not learning I run.

I have some work to go I know that, But I know if I push myself I can do it.

There it is. If you really want to go for the brass ring, dont let anyone try to talk you out of it.
