Some of you that have seen my log know that I focus mostly on powerlifting now. Since I have done this, however, I find that much of the fitness I used to have has decreased obviously in terms of running, endurance etc. I am definitely not running 6 min miles anymore, or smoking the O course like I used to.

I thought this article was pretty cool. I still frequent this SOF website to keep up to date on things. The article deals with training that the top operator's use. Maybe some of you already train this way...

i'm with ya boss! I was just saying the other day that I may run my next cycle without tren as it is really killing my cardio. I competed in a 3 gun contest last weekend and was winded as shit and wasn't even doing much. I remember after I left the service I kept up on running and thought i'd stay in shape but then went and did some drills with some of my old recon buddies and it wasn't the same.

I know the feeling. I'm a fraction of my former self.

When you were running Sheiko your days off were mandatory. You are free to run now. I would suggest however that you do things like tire flips, hammer strikes, sprints, prowler runs, sled pulls etc...

Thanks for the reading link, sometimes I go on the military channel and watch how navy seals go through hell in those workouts!
