  • shipping out Feb 2014 INFANTRY OSUT

    I'm 20 from long island NY, I hit the gym 5 times a day bang out 30-35 minutes of cardio a night averaging 4.25 miles in that time frame (fastest 2 mile was 13:53) I do 100 pushups and situps every night in sets of 25 (I'm pretty small 5'4 145lbs) My main question is what else can I do to better myself to make it less stressful physically & mentally How much of a shock is it on the mind and body? How bad is the shark attack really & how is getting smoked (what can it entail) Will my size make my time there more hellush? PLEASE ONLY PEOPLE WHO WENT THROUGH INFANTRY OSUT AS NON-INFANTRY IS TRAINED AND TREATED DIFFERENT

    Ooh wow. Too bad I cannot answer your post since I am non-infantry. I went to combat engineer OSUT and later on Marine Corps boot. With 24 years of service and three combat tours, I guess I don't have a clue.

      you'll be fine, i was 29 when i went into bct barely passed the weight requirements my 2mile run i was like18mins barely did 30 push ups and 25 sit ups, but the end of basic right before we move into the AIT phase like 8 or 9 weeks in i dropped about 30pounds, did 50-55 push ups and sit ups and my run was 15mins im still no pt stud but the army does things for a reason like when you eat and pt, and smoke sessions and if you motivated and stay positive and listen to the drill sgts, well atleast the ones that care you'll graduate,SOME drill sgt wont give a rats ass and you can usually tell which ones, for us shark attack wasn't nearly as bad as some others, we acutally never got on the bus to our battalion from 30th AG our 1st sgt called out names and put us in our platoons meet our drills got a 10-15 min crash course on D&C and marched our asses to our training post

        I was a 19D OSUT training... 10 years in and tons of schools and training... but we wouldn't have the slightest clue..

        Huntingtonzfinest - Infantry is NOT separated. Training is training. AIT may be different for people, but Basic Training is not. One team one fight, remember that.

          OP, BCT is the same for everyone. The hardest part is dealing with the same 30-60 dudes everyday for weeks on end with no break. This is the same for any suck school, deployment, ect.

            That's not what I meant. I mean basic training is the same. It's not harder or a different type of training.
