You have made the first steps which is great! The positive attitude you seem to have is the way ahead. The big secret of success is to ENJOY it. It will be very normal now & then to think to yourself "f**k this" or " what the f**k am I doing here" but NEVER say it out loud until AFTER you get your Green Beret :wink:
What can you do to prep?
Daily runs - 3 milers
Circuit type training - press ups - sit ups - squats - burpees - *pull ups
*PULL UPS -
Often a neglected exercise,especially for bigger guys. You can work on these in dedicated sets. If your current personal best is 2 pull ups for example try doing 10 sets of 2. You will see a rapid improvement. If you have a pull up bar at home do your max EVERY time you pass it.
Read up on Corps history if you have time and also familiarise yourself with current affairs, what the Corps are doing NOW.
Fitness & positive attitude are the most important however.
