This is a special birthday post, Happy Birthday Marine Corps. Today, November 10th, celebrates the birthday of the most bad ass fighting force on the planet. With this celebration comes a very special workout program which can be done by itself or in conjunction with another workout. Follow me from November 10th, today, to December 12th. From the Marine Corps birthday to my actual birthday.
Look like a Spartan, Gladiator, Marine, or even a Navy Seal. When you think of these warriors, what do you envision? The warrior mentality, able to do feats of physical fitness that is beyond others, yes to all of these. As a Marine who served for 2.5 years some 20 years ago I can attest to the physical challenges that I was put through to become a Marine. I have also had the opportunity to train and run missions with Seals and Army Rangers.
Often you will visit a playground, especially if you have kids, what you will notice though is that the kids are having fun and the adults are sitting or barely moving around. In the following video you will see my boys Hunter and Colton and their friend Aaron playing on the equipment. The boys and I also do a follow the leader with me doing some advanced exercises such as walking dips and walking pull ups. Now the boys cannot do all this but they sure try.
