I'm in the military and we typically only get 8 hours dedicated to sleep. But it obviously takes a little time to fall asleep and you need to wake up a little earlier so that you can shave, brush your teeth, and make it to PT 15 minutes early. So you're getting about 6 1/2 to 7 hours of sleep a...

Hi guys, I am training to increase my max rep pull ups for the Australian defence force fitness test. I have just completed four weeks of the 'Fighters Pull Up Program', which increase my max from 7 reps to 12 reps(Stoked). My question is where do i go from here in order to increase my max reps...
I'm currently experiencing quite a bit of pain, discomfort and range of motion issues in my right shoulder. I am no expert, but body awareness from approximately seven years of yoga, martial arts and exercise leads me to infer this is do to a gross muscle imbalance.

I have a question mainly targeted towards any one with military experience or similar.
I have been a Police officer for several years and am soon to be joining the Army in an infantry role, with about 12 weeks to train before I begin training.

I just finished the US Marine Corps PLC program and...
I wanted to start a thread on some clean and press or military press tips. Something that has helped me was kicking my hip over a little to get under the bell. Something else was remembering that the clean sets the tone for the press. If your clean is messy, you can expect...
I have posted a question on the forum few weeks ago.

Currently, my training consists of S&S (3-5 times a week) transitioning smoothly...
