How to Train Like a Marine – Marine Workout

The best and most complete plan to get rid of fat, build muscle and make your body work to the extremes.

Training Like a Marine

Marines from the US are one of the fittest and physically prepared military forces in the world. This happens because they’re obligated to put up a lot of top-notch workouts and resistance exercises to improve their endurance and make themselves look as big as they can.

They train a lot, eat a lot and burn as much fat as they need to put up even bigger muscles than they want. All of this is because of the physical challenges they are subjected to, both to be mentally prepared for the hardest and most extremes battle environments and to be as strong and resistant as animals. These are the hardest strength workouts and the best resistance exercises to put up the body a military man should have.

However, as these routines can get really monstrous, we will give you just a glimpse of what they do to be able to become Marines. Take a look and act with care, you won’t have to hurt yourself physically or mentally.

First Week

The plan of exercises for the first week consists of doing all the workouts we show you. Doing at least 1 set of each exercise and the Side Bridge for at least 25 seconds on each side. Don’t rest more than 60 seconds between workouts.

Second Week

Do the same exercises as the first week, but add a sprint between exercises. Run at least 100 meters and then finish the following exercise in the list.

Combine your exercise each day and try to shuffle between exercises but do at least 3 sets each one.

Third Week

This week you will be doing triples, a type of workout which consists of a routine of upper-body exercises followed by a lower-body exercise and then a sprint of about 100 meters or 20 seconds.

Combine your exercises with squats/push-ups, dumbbell swings/clean presses.

Fourth Week

In your fourth week on the Marine workout routine, you will have to do some new Marine Challenges. These routines consist of hardcore exercises with sprints and no rest between exercises. However, you will have to start each of these routines on each day with a plank and a sprint.

Marine Challenge One

Run for a quarter of a mile and then without resting, go immediately to do 15 reps of clean and presses, run again for 20 seconds and come back for 20 deadlifts. Go run again and do 25 squats and run again. This routine can be repeated three times, doing at least 3 sets of each exercise. You can also take time in each completed routine and see if you can beat your first routine with the next. Repeat this challenge every week after your forth.

Marine Challenge Two

Start with 20 repetitions of dumbbell swings without resting and do 20 pushups. After finishing these two sets, you will run for 30 seconds and come back again to do the same. This is called a superset, and it is done without resting for at least 20 minutes straight. Repeat this challenge every week after your fourth.

US Marine Exercises

The Marine exercises are pretty simple, they are just very demanding and sometimes when together, they can be really hard to complete. However, you will see how you improve your resistance and strength as you progress through the routines.Continue reading
