Re: Getting ready for the Marine Corps

I'm with Jake Dent on this one. I haven't been doing Crossfit very long but I've been to OCS. I would focus on your upper body strength and boots-and-utes runs. Don't worry about the PFT, by the time you get to your final you should be flying through the run anyway (you'll feel really light being back in sneakers for the first time in weeks). But pullups are important because you'll be doing them constantly, with the obstacle course etc, and if I were you I'd look for a rope too and get very comfortable climbing it, if you aren't already, because that's an area many candidates struggle with.

Be cautious though, not to pick up any injuries with OCS so close. You'll hurt yourself enough at OCS, believe me. Good luck!
