I think you're missing the point. Of course its not 100% awful, but thats because any type of movement, including punching yourself in the face, will burn calories if you do it long enough. Not only does crossfit disagree everything Ive learned through two professional certifications and a 4 year degree, as well as my own personal progress in fitness, Ive also personally tried it and found it to be terrible first hand. Im not following a hate train trend, I have firsthand and secondhand empirical evidence that shows its bad. Also, none of your sources are remotely helping your case. Evidence should prove that the cons are not true, not just list all the pros and cons.

I have, and it doesn't feel as comfortable or stable for me. I have really long forearms and hands, so holding the bar with 3 fingers feels super stable and comfortable for me. Actually one big turnoff for me on front squats was that I couldn't figure out a good, stable grip, but now that I'm used to this way it feels awesome.

It's not that I just disagree with you, it's that I completely, wholeheartedly, believe that you are completely and utterly wrong. Puts more bars in peoples hands? Who gives a fuck if they're permanently injuring themselves within the first year. There aren't nearly enough good coaches to keep up with that type of growth, so that's fucked, AAAANNND the very nature of the sport demands terrible form in order to compete with everyone else who's cheating reps. There isn't enough consistency to create proficiency with ANY of the movements (except maybe kipping pull-ups, which do NOTHING except damage your shoulders). The amount of volume can only serve to drive your body and nervous system into the ground. At the end of the day, there are TONS of faaaaar better ways to get strong, agile, and cardiovascularly fortified.

Nice work man! That 6th was a little loose, but you got i!

Next front squat day, do a burnout set using 135 (maybe 155 if you're not too tired) and do 5 pause reps for 5 seconds.

When I trained for meets, I implemented them into may training, did 3 set for 315 for 5 of 5 second pauses. It'll tighten your core so much and you'll break out regular squats like never before.
User avatar #35170 - marinepenguin (07/28/2015) [-]
Thanks! I'll for sure try that next time. And I've never even attempted 195 for a single before on front squats, that's how little experience I have with them, so I'm trying to make them a big priority and getting good at them.

Damn bro, so deep you're squatting with Davy Jones.

Some good clean ass form there and a good weight too! Personally i don't do front squats anymore (no reason why, just love my back squats)

I will say one thing though, that's a MAJOR sticking point you've got there halfway up, maybe try do more work on your glutes see if you can't improve that a little bit?

great job, subscribed
User avatar #35157 - marinepenguin (07/28/2015) [-]
Thanks man, I appreciate it!

And I've honestly never done any direct glute work because I'm terms of size my ass is already maybe the largest part of my body. I might try some stuff out with it as I get back from basic though.

I can go all day posting sources that say "crossfit is amazing" and you can post sources all day saying "crossfit is awful". We could go around and around with this completely contradicting each other. You'll say that they place time over technique in terms of priority, and ill claim that they place technique above everything before moving towards higher volume.

I was completely aboard the cross fit hate train until I started reading articles that tried to remain neutral and look at the sport objectively, there are obviously good and bad traits about it unless you are studbeefpile, who'll tell you all day that cross fit is a disgrace to barbell training , and whether or not you find it worth a shot or not is up to you. For me, it's another way to challenge myself, and it's a new experience in the weight room, ultimately I can't throw my definitive two cents in without trying it for a period of time myself. But if guys like Rippetoe and Thibs can find many good points with it, than it can't be objectively 100% awful.

Well I disagree. And there are many reputable individuals who do as well.

As things stand right now in my opinion, the cross fit competitions are a great event just like the tough mudder runs, strongman competitions, and all other popular fitness comps. Plus cross fit as put more bars in more peoples hands than bodybuilding and powerlifting ever has, and if anything puts people towards lifting weights and being healthy I can't hate it. It's a very new activity, and so the training is only just now starting to catch up with the sport, and as time goes in it'll only become more refined. Personally I'd try it as a test of my own personal fitness.

Uhh, no. Crossfit is plain and simply a bad idea. These injuries aren't 'freak accidents', they're a commonality among the sport. They're the rule, not the exception.

Performing high risk movements that require a huge focus on technique and proficiency, with the goal being to perform as many as possible in the shortest amount of time, is literally a recipe for disaster.

Agreed, its nowhere close to the NBA. Crossfit has more injuries than any other "sport." I have some physical therapy buddies who say they have seen a huge influx of patients that come directly from crossfit. Power movements for time is a death sentence.
User avatar #35150 - marinepenguin (07/28/2015) [-]
Youre thinking of the early crossfit wods where they'd prioritize time over technique, which resulted in a ton of spinal injuries. Crossfit the past few years has had time to evolve to the point where most boxes prioritize form and technique and then work to condition themselves to maintain that technique over long workloads. Early crossfit was indeed a joke, but these days "training crossfit" is more like training specific components of the WODs in preparation for the Crossfit games and their smaller associations, it's treated more like a sport in overall fitness than a way of training all on its own.

I'm more of a 1st and 5th/6th gen fan myself. The others just aren't pretty to my eyes... My father actually bought a '68 SS Camaro when I was about 12. The seller said it was all original parts... the seller lied. We checked the serial numbers and almost none of it was. So the next few years were spent making it absolutely ridiculous before it basically sat in the garage for months on end When I say ridiculous, I mean ridiculously fast . My dad loved the car too much to just let it collect dust and he's paying for a family of 3 where my brother and I are both in college, so the money was also needed. Idk how he manages... It's crazy.

I just want to live a nice life. I want to make it to my death bed saying I was never in any debt, I want to own a house and my dream car, and I want to be happy. That's pretty much all. If I happen to meet a girl who steals my heart while aiming for the same goals, that'd be great. If I make it big enough to trade in the Camaro and drive around in a Stingray 'Vette, that'd be great, as well. But the only real goals are absolute independence, a car, a house, and enough of a retirement to live very comfortably.

If I were to invest 10% of my pay into 401k's, I'd apparently be a multimillionaire, but that brings up the previously asked question of how much faith I have. And the fact that I'm still studying to become an engineer, as well lol.

I'm planning on renting an apartment and living pretty modestly (just get the basics and some video game things; but save the majority of my money), then after 2 or so years, I should have enough saved up to buy a Camaro (if it's similarly priced, it'll be around $33k for an equivalent to what I'm wanting now) because Chevy runs deep and I've wanted one since I was 11. Then I'm going to invest; probably in mutual funds that grow so I can wind up investing like $60k and get $90k, y'know? Once I reach a good amount like that, I'll buy a house.

As you can see, I don't much like the idea of going into debt, and would rather save my money then pay for things rather than let the banks own them while I pay them off.

That's why I joined the guard, I'll be able to get my masters in engineering for free, and ill come out with around 40k in my pocket.

You like Camaros also, so we can be friends, my first car was a '96 Camaro T-Top

I want to build equity, buying and owning several homes from which I can rent out and manage will just be extra cash in my pocket. I would also invest in mutual funds, I don't plan on living lavishly, I want to take any extra money I have and put it into something that can make me more money.

I'm more of a 1st and 5th/6th gen fan myself. The others just aren't pretty to my eyes... My father actually bought a '68 SS Camaro when I was about 12. The seller said it was all original parts... the seller lied. We checked the serial numbers and almost none of it was. So the next few years were spent making it absolutely ridiculous before it basically sat in the garage for months on end When I say ridiculous, I mean ridiculously fast . My dad loved the car too much to just let it collect dust and he's paying for a family of 3 where my brother and I are both in college, so the money was also needed. Idk how he manages... It's crazy.

I just want to live a nice life. I want to make it to my death bed saying I was never in any debt, I want to own a house and my dream car, and I want to be happy. That's pretty much all. If I happen to meet a girl who steals my heart while aiming for the same goals, that'd be great. If I make it big enough to trade in the Camaro and drive around in a Stingray 'Vette, that'd be great, as well. But the only real goals are absolute independence, a car, a house, and enough of a retirement to live very comfortably.

If I were to invest 10% of my pay into 401k's, I'd apparently be a multimillionaire, but that brings up the previously asked question of how much faith I have. And the fact that I'm still studying to become an engineer, as well lol.

That just raises a question for me: Do I have faith that we'll last another 45 years for me to retire with it, and invest in 401k's or do I just start hoarding gold and silver...?

I think I'll just do whatever my employer will match up to so I can get the money from him and invest my remaining in gold/silver in the mean time. I'd like to think that any catastrophic event like that would happen far enough away from my retirement for me to wind up decent with the stocks to cash out on and become the millionaire that some baby boomers (the ones who actually took advantage of and invested in the stocks). Hopefully, as an engineer, the employer would offer a good plan that outpaces inflation.

I'm going for engineering as well. But what I'm doing is I joined the national guard at 19, so that when I turn 39 i can have a military retirement with all sorts of benefits. It won't be amazing, but it'll be something. I also plan on owning as much property as possible, I live in the country so there is plenty of cheap land to do things with.

I'm planning on renting an apartment and living pretty modestly (just get the basics and some video game things; but save the majority of my money), then after 2 or so years, I should have enough saved up to buy a Camaro (if it's similarly priced, it'll be around $33k for an equivalent to what I'm wanting now) because Chevy runs deep and I've wanted one since I was 11. Then I'm going to invest; probably in mutual funds that grow so I can wind up investing like $60k and get $90k, y'know? Once I reach a good amount like that, I'll buy a house.

As you can see, I don't much like the idea of going into debt, and would rather save my money then pay for things rather than let the banks own them while I pay them off. I've actually had some people question my intelligence for saying I will refuse to pay a loan for a house, but then I just look back at the recent recession that was caused by just that.

China also has that massive housing problem. They're building whole towns large enough to house thousands of people, even destroying the more poverty-stricken neighborhoods to do so and they become ghost towns because there never was any demand for them at all. Sure, it makes them seem wealthy and strong when they include those workers as the employed workforce and what not, but it's work that'll just be left to rot. And when the citizens have to pay for said government to invest that money, and said investments are left to rot, it's just money that the citizens basically threw away without even having the chance to use as fire fuel.

I mainly just used China as the example because that's what everyone else seems to focus on. I think we all know our glorious leader, Admin, will use North Korea to propel into the #1 spot in the world.

But in all seriousness, it's pretty worrying when you look at how fucked the US is becoming and realize that we're still somehow #1.

There is no such thing as mandatory service here in the US. There is a draft, but it isn't active.

I wanted to join the military in some ways anyways, so it really isn't bad. Plus two days a month and two weeks a year for 6 years is a fantastic deal.

And I'm studying engineering, hopefully I can get into an aerospace program and get a contract with Boeing or NASA.

i really wanted to be computer engineer, i do like logic operators and gates. but this university doesnt support it.

i am studying ITC ( Information Technology & Computing ) they teach different stuff in the computer study from data, programming and mathematics.

this university gives Bachelors degree, Then Master in later study. what about yours?
User avatar #416 to #415 - marinepenguin (06/16/2015) [-]
Ahh well that's pretty cool sounding.

The program I'll be trying to get into is only a couple years depending on what transfers over from my previous school. I already have an associates degree in science.

But my military gives me a free 4 years in school, so I could potentially get a master's without paying as well. I plan on using all of my benefits, so ill may minor in another field that interests me as well, like physical training.

since my father death in January im now the god of the house. by god not mean a god but the one who control the house im trying my best to make the family one piece without problems. i have 4 brothers and one sisters. i am the eldest.

I wanted to migrate to another country to find better life. my family wanted me to move so i can later bring them when i have good job, house, work and finished education. my super visor helped me and i was about to migrate to a European country that the UN house will decide. then he said stop and stay because of my family.

looks like im stuck in this ******** . the worst part of all im 100% sure my brothers and sister wont benefit me in the future. but im just doing this for my father soul and for god face.

I officially have a shoulder/OHP day.

The main focus is going to be Overhead Press, obviously, but my two secondary compounds are going to be Behind the Neck press, and Upright Rows. Now, since they're both heavy compounds, I don't know which to prioritize. So do you think I should do OHP, followed by BNP, and then Upright Rows? Or OHP followed by Upright Rows, and then BNP?
User avatar #393 to #392 - marinepenguin (06/16/2015) [-]
You've done regular overhead presses for a while now, so I'd focus on rear overhead presses. Start real light though, like with the bar, then gradually move up as you feel comfortable.

In my opinion, you don't need to do another overhead press movement, but if you really want to, do it for speed and explosiveness. Upright rows can be last, I wouldn't even consider those a main movement.
User avatar #394 to #393 - studbeefpile (06/16/2015) [-]
I haven't gotten as proficient with standard OHP as I'd like to yet, since I've always done them after Benching.

Delt Flies are last, so really I only have one isolation movement.
User avatar #395 to #394 - marinepenguin (06/16/2015) [-]
Well then I'd keep regular overhead presses first, then do rear overhead presses second, focusing on getting used to the movement, just the bar made me sore at first since I'd never done them.
User avatar #398 to #395 - studbeefpile (06/16/2015) [-]
Also, should I lockout each rep for rear ohp? Since it's specifically a shoulder movement and I get plenty of tricep work on bench day, do you think it'd be more beneficial to do 2/3rds?
User avatar #399 to #398 - marinepenguin (06/16/2015) [-]
I don't lockout, it feels like a lot more bad stress on my shoulders.

I usually go right before lockout, but if you wanted to go 2/3rds it wouldn't hurt.

Dips are tricep **** . Should do incline dumbbell press after bench and add an exclusive day to shoulders. that workout doesn't have any direct trapezius workout. On day B I dont get why you would do straight bar curls (NOT BARBELL dont be that guy ) as well as dumbbell curls when the only different is a slight supernate of the wrist. Replace the dumbbell curls for wider grip straight bar curl and regular, then do hammer curls too for forearm gains.

And that's totally fine. I usually do my incline bench pressing differently so that I hit my upper chest really well, so play around with a few things to fit you better. I just gave a general guideline.

Sets and reps scheme for these?

I switched your weekly schedule to ABXCAXBCX, etc. Two days on, one day off, more frequency and still decent amounts of rest between working a muscle group.

One note, I use the double progression method, which means that when I put 3-5 reps, you aim for 5 reps, but if you can only get 3, keep the weight the same for the next week and aim for improving your reps until you get 5. Once you get the max reps you add 5 pounds the next week.

A day:
Pause Bench 3x3-5
Cable Crossovers/DB Flys 3x10-12 choose one to do first, then do the other the next week
Dips 4x10-12
Incline bench/OHP 3X6-8
Lateral raises 3x10-12
DB tricep extensions/ BB Skullcrushers 3x10-12

B day:
Barbell row 4x8-10
Pull ups 3x8-10
Lawnmower pulls 4x8-10
DB rows 3x10-12
Back flys 4x10-12
BB curls/Hammer curls 3x8-10

C day:

It's looks good. I'll make sure I can do all of these movements correctly.
I currently get around 2800 cals a day, probably should be upping it eh?
I also take 5g creatine everyday and drink plenty of water,following this schedule for the summer where do you think I could expect my lifts to be at by the end of August?
User avatar #357 to #353 - marinepenguin (05/28/2015) [-]
Aim for 3500, if you're gaining to much fat, dial down to 3300.

and it really depends on you. In perfect conditions with decent genetics, I'd say you could add 40-60 pounds on all your lifts since you are still fairly beginner.

For an example, I've been training a friend of mine for about 3 months now. I took his bench from 165 to 215 in one month, just by teaching him proper breathing, form, etc. Hes at 225 now.
User avatar #352 to #351 - marinepenguin (05/28/2015) [-]
And as for increasing in weight on secondary movements, go by feel, if a weight is beginning to get easy, go up. But try not to increase weight on those more then 5-10 pounds a month or else you'll burn out on them very quickly.
User avatar #354 to #352 - loomiss (05/28/2015) [-]
What do ya mean by seconday movements?
And thanks a ton for the help man!
User avatar #355 to #354 - marinepenguin (05/28/2015) [-]
Movements that aren't big compounds. Rows, bench, squat, etc. Leg press I'm not quite sure, my experience with that is not as good since I don't have it. But I know that since you can do a ton of weight I leg pressed 700 for of couples sets of 12 for ***** and giggles as my base gym , moving up in weight won't be hard.

But basically, focus on increasing the big barbell movements. The secondary movements are the ones that work one muscle or supplement a main lift. Incline bench, curls, tricep extensions, leg curls, etc.
User avatar #356 to #355 - loomiss (05/28/2015) [-]
okay sounds good, thanks man.
What are your current stats
height weight big 4 lifts?
#358 to #356 - marinepenguin (05/28/2015) [-]
Right now I'm 6'3 and right around 200 pounds. Probably 10-12% body fat.

I couldn't tell you my 1 RM since I don't ever do singles. But here's what I can give you.

Bench: ~255-265
Squat: 315 for 8
Deadlift: 365 really hitting that now so it's changing every week/spoiler]
OHP: 185 [spoiler] I rear OHP these days instead

Power Clean: 255

What should i go grocery shopping for for high calorie foods ( i want a decently cleanish bulk) I eat chipotle and taco bell quite often but whatevs,
I get the XXL stuft chicken burrito at tbell, a nice 810 calories with like 35 g of protein
What should i shop for?
User avatar #360 to #359 - marinepenguin (05/28/2015) [-]
Chicken, rice, eggs, more eggs, potatos, any sort of meat, cottage cheese, milk, peanut butter, cheese, fruits and veggies. Really most things that are unprocessed are completely fine. Find a few quick to make snacks that are high in calories and protein chicken and cheese tortillas and pbjs are my favorites .

But a poptart before bed every couple days won't kill ya.

Already did.

If I were to make videos I'd probably do them more on the diet and supplement side of things. Since you don't use preworkouts, intraworkouts, etc.

Pros, cons, best ways to use them, etc.

I catch your drift though. If you feel like discussing it, I've spent mannny many hours talking with different people about these sorts of things/decisions, so I really don't mind talking about it at all. For whatever reason people seem to like talking to me about that stuff. Of course if you don't feel like talking about it, you don't have to.
User avatar #316 to #315 - marinepenguin (03/23/2015) [-]
It's just a ton of different factors really.

I'm leaving for basic training this summer, and I have no plans on marrying her. And once I get back I'll be moving closer to my future college and getting a job there, away from my hometown where she also lives, and I don't want to move in with her.

And on top of that, a girl I've known, liked, and cared for since I was a freshman in high school has recently become single and has shown a lot of interest in me.

And included in all that, hanging out with my gf, and doing really any activity with her feels like a huge chore and I never look forward to it. She's my first serious relationship, and she's convinced we're going to get married. In her eyes everything is perfect and nothing is wrong, so me breaking it off would utterly destroy her.

I already know what I want, and what I should do, but actually doing it is hard. Especially after yesterday was our two year anniversary.

Understandable, it's all good.
User avatar #317 to #316 - studbeefpile (03/23/2015) [-]
That is rough dude. Very rough indeed.

There are a couple things you have to consider.

1. Love is more choice, than emotion. Ask any married couple - there will be times when you don't 'feel' like loving your SO, but you do anyway, because you're committed to them.

So look at the facts of your overall relationship. Does she give you something valuable, and you're just overlooking it at the moment?

2. If she doesn't give you anything, and you really don't have any intention to marry her whatsoever, you absolutely need to cut the relationship off as soon as possible for her sake. If you don't plan on going anywhere, ultimately it's going to end up hurting her down the road faaaar more than if you just break up with her now.

Of course it'll be difficult, but there are good ways to do it. Take your time, and be careful with your wording. If she understands where you're coming from, then that's good, and perhaps you guys can still be decent friends. If she loses it, it's a good thing you got out anyway.

Ultimately this is in your hands, but the worst thing you could do is not do anything about the situation at all. The longer it goes on, the worse it'll be when it ends.
User avatar #319 to #317 - marinepenguin (03/23/2015) [-]
I love her in the idea that I really care for her and want the best for her, but I don't love her in the way that I'd spend my life with her.

She doesn't really give me anything, companionship sure, but I've gotten her a job, a car, got her to go to college, without me she'd be way worse off. So for that she really appreciates me. but I don't get anything from her that I couldn't get from any other girl while having more freedom for myself.

This other girl that just entered the picture only makes things worse. My parents and all our friends have constantly told me that they think both of us will end up together in the end, and when we're both at work we talk almost nonstop. And now that she left her extremely constricting boyfriend she's started flirting as well. Now I would never stoop so low as to make something of this while with my girlfriend, but the temptation is there and I don't think that's much better.

Like I said, I know what needs to be done, I just find it hard to actually do it, it's like a goddamn massive bandaid I don't want to pull off.
User avatar #321 to #319 - studbeefpile (03/23/2015) [-]
You just gotta be strong and do it dude.

My advice would be to take a whole evening and just set aside time to talk about it. You don't wanna leave anything to question. The sooner the better, you know this.

Besides, if you don't act on this other chick fast, she might get taken by some other dude that's quicker to the draw.
User avatar #322 to #321 - marinepenguin (03/24/2015) [-]
Yeah that's something I really fear. I have liked her for a long time, lot of regrets with that girl. This could be my last chance with her.

Thanks for listening. Appreciate venting more than anything.
User avatar #325 to #324 - studbeefpile (03/24/2015) [-]
The opposite of expression is depression. If you don't express, you get depressed. Venting is necessary.

I often have to vent as well, and you know, there's someone that's always been there for me. Through thick and thin, hot and cold. Depressed. Happy. Sad. Excited. No matter what, they've always been there for me......

That person is Deadlift Day.
User avatar #326 to #325 - marinepenguin (03/24/2015) [-]
For sure, lifting always helps when it comes to really everything. Angry? Squats. Sad? Chest. Teenage angst? Back day. The iron always listens to your problems.
User avatar #327 to #326 - studbeefpile (03/24/2015) [-]
Hahah, teenage angst.

"Nobody understands me, I'm gonna go into my gym and lift to Greenday!"

Is that your set though? For me Deadlifting will help with pretty much any emotion - although especially anger and sadness. Squats are good when I'm just amped up and wanna crush something, and bench is actually pretty chill for me. I find that I typically don't get super duper hyped for bench and that's fine. Bench is just an easy chill day for me.
User avatar #328 to #327 - marinepenguin (03/24/2015) [-]
Nah not really, I just picked random stuff.

I have a ton of volume and high rep work, so while I look forward to stuff like squats and power cleans, my workouts in general are brutal enough to where I'm too wiped to experience any sort of emotion for an hour or two.

But yeah, chest day is probably my least intense day as well.
User avatar #309 to #308 - studbeefpile (03/23/2015) [-]
pfft, maybe your skin.

I play the funky bass.

So how much would you recommend me for calorie intake, so far I've been taking in around 3200. I wanna gain a lot of weight, but I don't wanna fat myself up. 5'11, 136 currently and I workout 6 times a week between 1:30-2hrs. I of course understand that if I actually want abs I would need to cut so I won't be seeing them for a while.
User avatar #295 to #294 - marinepenguin (01/28/2015) [-]
Have you been gaining weight recently at 3200 calories?
User avatar #296 to #295 - lulzformalaysiaair (01/28/2015) [-]
I honestly can't tell because I don't measure in equal intervals (before eating) but I've definitely been eating more then I used to and I can definitely continue. I'm sure I've gained at least 5 pounds.
User avatar #297 to #296 - marinepenguin (01/28/2015) [-]
In how long of a timeframe? If you are wanting to gain extremely lean muscle, you should expect maybe a pound or 2 a month. You can only build about .25 lbs of muscle a week at max. So if you were to gain a pound of fat for every pound of muscle, you'd be doing good.

But considering that you are 136 pounds. You may want to put on some mass in general. I'd say if you aren't gaining a ton of weight, up it to 3500 a day.
User avatar #298 to #297 - lulzformalaysiaair (01/28/2015) [-]

Yeah, my cousin went through a lot of that when he was in combat.
User avatar #280 to #279 - marinepenguin (01/18/2015) [-]
Really? What branch is he in?

I just recently joined the Air National Guard. My unit has a reputation for getting a lot of deployments, so chances are that I'll be in a bad situation at some in my 6 years.
User avatar #281 to #280 - teoyuppie (01/18/2015) [-]
He was in the Marines. Served from 2004-2007ish. Fought in the harshest situations when **** really hit the fan in Fallujah. Also in Najaf and Baghdad. Got wounded when his hummvee was avoiding an IED. But he's doing well. No signs of PTSD, he's fully mobile and got out in one piece and maintains a great job. So we're all thankful he's doing well. I still remember flying down with my father to Parris Island when he graduated that summer. It gave me a deeper appreciation for our troops.
User avatar #282 to #281 - marinepenguin (01/18/2015) [-]
Well that's awesome. In the movie they are in Fallujah for quite some time. I'm glad to hear he got out in one piece physically and mentally. I haven't even gotten to basic yet, but in my student flight I've already gotten to appreciate the camaraderie and discipline.
User avatar #283 to #282 - teoyuppie (01/18/2015) [-]
If only more people had that spirit. My brother's in the Navy in near the Florida border and he tells me that some people just don't give a rat's ass about following orders. Mostly urban youth, people who are overweight and cheat on the physicals and some sexual situations. Some with military wives some with women in service. It's soiling the morale. But I guess **** happens and the military will handle it.
User avatar #284 to #283 - marinepenguin (01/18/2015) [-]
Yeah those people irritate the hell out of me. People are in the military either because they're patriotic or they just consider it a job. It should be more then that. I decided a long time ago that I was going to get involved in the military as some point, my father was in the navy as a search and rescue and I wanted to continue the military tradition. Unfortunately the National Guard is all I can do while in college. If a large scale war broke out I know that I'd try to join the TACPs and enlist full time.
User avatar #285 to #284 - teoyuppie (01/18/2015) [-]
Honestly, I considered enlisting but I was too far into college to do so. I would have done it not for myself, but for the love of my country and to rightfully earn that title of a Marine. I grew up in a small town in New Jersey, just 20 minutes away from Manhattan. A lot of people in my town went to work there and unfortunately we lost a good amount of people on 9/11. I still remember it like it was yesterday. My mom also knew people when they were kids who were taken on that day, I'm always meeting new people and eventually find out that they lost a parent, our area stopped holding ceremonies after the anniversary because it was too much for a lot of us. But I'd say 9/11 was a day that made me appreciate my family, my country and our men and women in uniform more than ever. If ever you head out to NYC I highly recommend you check out the memorial. I was just there this past summer and it was breathtaking. Got me choked up honestly.
User avatar #286 to #285 - marinepenguin (01/18/2015) [-]
I'm in a small town in the Midwest so fortunately we didn't lose anyone around here. Being a small rural town with big guns and a rich history of veterans you can imagine how we all reacted after that day. We have a lot of Iraq veterans over here because of it. I was in first grade at the time, but I remember being dismissed from school and seeing everyone cry.

I'll make it a point to visit someday. I admit I don't feel like I'm doing as much as I can just being in the guard, I don't think I deserve the title of airman even. Only people who give their full time and enlist deserve that.
User avatar #287 to #286 - teoyuppie (01/18/2015) [-]
I truly believe what you're doing counts. Every little contribution in the efforts of freedom matters no matter what. Your area sound so Americana with the veterans. I can't imagine what it must be like on Memorial Day and Independence Day.
User avatar #288 to #287 - marinepenguin (01/18/2015) [-]
Regardless I'll still give those enlisted men the respect they deserve.

And it's crazy. Barbeques, services, speeches, parades. Out of every graduating class (40-60 every year) a good 2-5 will be headed straight to basic for the air force or boot for other branches. I remember on veterans day programs when I was in grade school, our new gym that held 1100 people was standing room only. Standing ovations, 21 gun salutes and all. My father rarely went because he felt he didn't deserve the honor. He was in during the first gulf war and he knew guys that got killed, but he never fired a shot being just naval search and rescue.
User avatar #289 to #288 - teoyuppie (01/18/2015) [-]
