This is the third of a series of Autopsies which outline and detail a plan to score perfect on each of the US military branch's fitness tests. The last one we covered was the Max Out the US Air Force Fitness Test ; this one is on the USMC Physical Fitness Test [PFT]. The reason for this series is simple: we believe if there is a guideline, you should strive for perfection every time.

You hear it all over the place, it's the new craze. Read any magazine, from Muscle and Fiction to Runner's World and you'll see the word intensity. But what exactly is it? Can you define the word intensity?
Some define intensity based on how sweaty you are or how loud you're screaming in the gym. Runners define intensity based on how high the heart rate is. The problem is that neither of these are strong correlates to what intensity actually is. For example, just because your heart… Continue

Most people aren't prepared for the extreme level needed to negotiate the challenging obstacles presented in the Fatal Fitness Death Certificates. There is no shame in not being able to complete or handle anything found in our programs. The most important thing to bring to the table is your willpower, which is the only weapon needed to rise to the occassion. It is also important to remember that just because you can't complete a DC as prescribed, you can still scale it to your ability… Continue

What is Fatal Fitness?
The official definition: Fatal Fitness is an intense exercise system designed specifically to supplement military pt that focuses on functional fitness with a slightly different twist in near-randomized methodology to allow incorporation of extra "miscellaneous" exercises and character development.
Because routine and monotony and mediocrity all suck, among many other things, we decided to take fitness to another level. We're… Continue

We’re coming up on two years of existence this November. I think the time has flown by because we are so busy moving forward that we leave our old selves in the dust, which, according to Anthony, is the whole theme of it anyway. Looking back on 2006 and comparing it to now, I am completely amazed at what has evolved and transpired over those months. I feel as though it’s not only time to take a look at where we came from, but where we’re headed as well. We’re going to get reacquainted. In… Continue

Something a lot of people fail to realize, which is staring everyone in the face, is that the overload principle (stress your body and it will respond in the appropriate manner) is incredibly simple. There is no thought required. If you want to get good at pullups, do more pullups. If you want your legs to be like tree trunks, do figure skating.
I'm kidding and I'm not kidding.
Everyone notices certain things about athletes in their respective sports. Male gymnasts are jacked.… Continue

I feel the need to dedicate an entire Autopsy to the warm-up and cool-down, because there is an ostensible lack of documentation on them here. In addition to this, those of us designing and posting DCs sometimes take for granted that not everyone understands the warm-up and cool-down process, or even knows that it should be done by default for every DC. This Autopsy aims to educate you on not only the what and the how, but the why behind warm-up and cool-downs, and why it is extremely essential… Continue

When I think of crazy physical feats I normally think of circus acts and Chinese acrobats. Or unsettling acts on Ripley’s Believe it or Not. The kind I’m talking about though, with admiration, are those cool moves that have stood the test of time, the perpetually awesome, yet still evasive things that never find their way into how-to manuals. They’re almost taboo, these super-techniques, and because of that most “normal” people (like me) disregard… Continue
