The primary reason people quit is because of the daily schedule. Indoc smokes you 8 hours a day and most people quit for many reasons. Too hard, not mentaly in it, not what they thought it would be like, girls, mental lapses etc etc. If you stay focused and work on your small battles like just making it to lunch, or the end of the day you will do fine.
Later on in the school you are overwhelmed with things to do. You are always busy and never have any time to just relax. Wake up at 0415 and in bed around 11 every day. You are doing PT, in class, doing homework, cleaning and maintaining equipment, team meetings, details, memorizing study material, trying to take care of your aching and broken down body and are pretty much constantly on the run every waking moment of your day. Running everywhere, catching up on remedial PT like 8-count body builders at lunch and end of the school day. (It's hard to do 1000 during lunch and after school before th Cadre go home...) You run EVERYWHERE, all the time. Your s*** has to be up tight at all times because the slightest hiccup will cost you and your team dearly. That's why most people quit.
The reason it seems more people quit CCT over PJ is because the CCT teams are smaller than the PJ teams. Day 1 at indoc might be 40 CCT guys, while the PJ's have like 100. And the PJ's do all the fun stuff first, then the hard s*** so they are accustomed to it by time it comes around. CCT does all the hard stuff in Phase I, then Phase II is all the cool s*** like Halo, Dive, demo, IFam etc.
hey man thank you very much for your response! are you a CCT or in airforce or what? you information is very helpful! and also do you know when the drownproofing and all that takes place cause i really dont wanna lose my water confidence! im sure they will not allow me any pool time in BMT, i wouldnt expect them to! but thank you very much, all the information helps very much! ive been working very hard and i cant wait to leave and start my CCT training!
alright, i just finished the pipeline and graduated CCS last thursday. dont worry about anything in the water ie watercon drownproofing etc. all you really do in the water is fin. only advice ill give you is make sure your cals are solid, form is perfect because day 1 past your going to lose a s*** load of guys. i remember 50 dudes took the past and only 20 passed to start selection. other than that the entire pipeline is building you up to pass the final AFSOC at ccs and be a rucking machine.
congrats on the pipeline man! i cant wait to start! what all did you do before you went? were you running a lot and everything swimming what? ive been working very very hard!! and i guess ill start finning a lot more too i figured more would be drownproofing! and do you mean perfect pushups sits up pullups all that?? my form is good, well i think it is! and if you have any advice what i should be doing let me know! ive been rucking some ill hit it more since you said that! i just want this more than anything in my life! id really appreciate your help! thanks brother!
i was doing the DC's about 2-3 times a week as well as crossfits. If i were you and i was able to workout mon-fri and taking the weekends to rest i would becuase that is what your workout schedule will be like. I killed selection and all i did were the dc's and wod's though i had been an athlete my entire life which helped.as for running i would check out crossfit endurance and would also be comfortable running about a 7min mile for about 4 miles because thats what you will primarily be doing at ATC running around the flightline. for cals i would have a buddy lay down make a fist and put it between your hands so when you come down your chest(between the nipples) hits his hand and when you come up you lock your elbows out. thats how pushups are graded also make your you dont do the worm or stick your ass in the air or put your d*** in the dirt. pullups, dead hang pull all the way up chin obvious over the bar no reaching with your chin, best bet is to look at the instructor when he counts you. sit ups, hands interlocked behind head making sure your webbing stays together. i would keep your elbows pretty much wrapped around your head so you dont chicken wing it. if you can find a hill i would spend maybe an hour or 2 running up it log rolling down bearcrawling up it crab walking down front rolling whatever, because you will be doing plenty of that at selection. ATC was definitely the hardest school both academically and physically dont want to give away much of it just be ready for a grind.
im sorry im sure i should know what dcs and wods are but not sure what your talkin about! and a cct came in recently and worked with me and is tryin to get crossfit set up for me! i know that would be a huge advantage! how long is selection also? sorry im prolly wearing you out but i really appreciate the help man!
lol i guess i didnt notice that Fatalfitness doesnt call there daily workouts DC's anymore (death certificates) sorry its been about a year since ive really checked this site out. And WOD's are workout of the day(the workout they put up on the main site daily) thats what crossfitters call them anyways. selection is 2 weeks. trust me bro you want to make it through, the training is going to be tough but the guys who stick it out with you are great, and your going to have more fun in the year it takes to get through the pipeline than you have prob ever had before.
cadre i didnt even know yall had workouts on here man ha i just saw today the thing with the ruck holding it out in front of you! am i missing something? id like to use these workouts on here! nfq thanks again im sure i can tough it out for two weeks thats not long at all and this is something that i want more than anything and im in the best shape of my life! im sure a lot of its mental could be wrong but thats just what ive heard! im guessing those 2 weeks are alot of running and rucking and stuff right?
