Exclamation Training A Foreign Military

Hey guys, my unit is going to train a foreign military in may. I'm not sure what they have to work with as far as equipment. Any ideas on some good equipment free CrossFit workouts I can do with them. I am a Level I, just spoiled with having gear. Thanks.

Re: Training A Foreign Military

What military and where? A general infantry unit, or a more elite unit?

Re: Training A Foreign Military

I would message one of the many current and ex military people on this board. Keep in mind, this board appears in Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, and the People's Very Happy (we smile all the time everywhere) Republic of China.

None of this stuff is secret per se, but you might get more willingness to respond in a more private forum.

If you haven't observed any of these people, message me, and I will do what I can to help.

Re: Training A Foreign Military

He may or may not be able to communicate exactly where...

Regardless, check http://www.board.crossfit.com/showthread.php?t=38312 (WFS, of course). It's a list of bodyweight workouts (usually requiring nothing more than a bar if that). Keeping in mind that many of these workouts will have to be scaled, it's a good place to start looking. I know if you look for "Prison Workouts" on Google, you can sometimes come up with good stuff.

Of course, you can always make 'em do buddy-rushes, fireman's carries, etc. The more directly applicable, the better.

Re: Training A Foreign Military

all you need.

http://www.cfpsa.ca/en/psp/Fitness/d...itness.pdf.pdf wfs

and anything with a sandbag.

Dont forget.. tug a war.... losers do 50 burpees... but in the esprit d' corp .. everyone body does 50 burpees.. MUWAHAHAHAHAHA

My nightmare was leap frogging 2 miles ... later that day, we learned fire and movement aka pepper podding to the objective... made total sense.

Re: Training A Foreign Military

A lot of the 3rd world military bases I visited had a lot of old junk like tires, and places to do pull-ups, plus if there are conscripts, there are sandbags...

Re: Training A Foreign Military

Christian-Awesome Link. I wish I had or could give more info.

Frank-Another awesome document.

I'm sure I'll be able to use both!

Any other ideas greatly appreciated. No such thing as too much help

Re: Training A Foreign Military

I meant are you training them in the field, or at a well supplied base. What type of soldier they are will dictate what you do with them. More elite soldiers tend to be more adept at more advanced things.

oh really?
The bangladeshi commandos showed up at Sarajevo in sandals. One cannot assume "elite" are well equiped. They could be simply.. volunteers verses "conscripts" or get better quality food.

I didn't say better equiped I said better adapted to hard training.
