Soon, the heavy heat of summer will beat down, making every training session both a high octane celebration of overcoming oppressive conditions and a reminder of proper hydration and other cautionary considerations. Despite the warnings, the overwhelming evidence that caution must be taken many will foolhardily press into their exercise day and suffer from the effect of dehydration and heat exhaustion.
It was only a few months ago that these training sessions were through snowy confines were barely had feeling in your fingertips and while you pressed on, when it came time to impossible cold weather conditions very few challenged the environment.
Though each of those conditions is valid, for those in the military there are no choices. In-fact, military personnel must be prepared not only to handle physical and mental extremes but be accustomed to them as a part of an everyday environment.
Training for military service, if you will allow me to say this, must accommodate you to chaos and not simply a challenging exercise complex but the reality where hell is the cradle you rest in and everything else is easy.
To consider training for military or more accurately preparation for ongoing military service you must first understand the demands of soldiering and in most cases, eliminate the salesmanship of the exercise community that preys upon that sector.
The point will likely raise the ire of many but equally those who focus their sales and marketing efforts on young military personnel without every being honest of the demands of soldiering. It may strike a chord with readers, particularly impressible ones eager for military service but just because a certain exercise approach has a “warrior” title, uses camouflage graphics or appears physically exhausting does not make it suited towards the demands of soldiering.
If you will allow me, I am going to break from the confines of writing a exercise and sport training blog for this brief moment and explain the focus of this weeks article off the cuff.
For many of my readers today is Memorial Day, a chance to give thanks to the brave men and women who have protected their homeland, many of which who never came home and paid the ultimate of costs to provide the freedoms that are enjoyed.
I likely could have taken the day off and not released an article but for me, that does not sit right. With this in-mind and a stern resolve that respect for the Military is not a once a year time, speaking on behalf of my “Team” and my friends, the “family” of USPlabs, this week is for you as we dedicate all articles those who keep us safe.
