One of the biggest aspects of preparing for United States Marine Corps Officer Candidate School is physical training. I placed a major emphasis on physical training before I attended Marine OCS and I looked to multiple places for guidance and inspiration. I participated in a variety of CrossFit workouts, long distance runs, heavy weight training, etc. However, one of the best investments and time commitments I made was following Stew Smith’s USMC Officer Candidate School Workout. For the price of $16.95 in downloadable PDF format and $19.99 in paperback, it’s one of the best investments any potential Marine Officer Candidate can make.
To view the e-book, here is the link StewSmith.com Fitness. In the official product description, Stew Smith let’s you know what the direct point of his book is:
Go to USMC OCS in the shape of your life with this program to help ace the standard USMC Physical Fitness Test (PFT). Pullups, situps, and running are featured in this program accompanied with weights as optional training tools as well. Get yourself ready for ruck marches, obstacles courses, and other events with this tough PT program.
As someone who has purchased the book myself and completed the workouts, I can absolutely assure you that it will challenge you and get you ready for Officer Candidate School. It combines a mix of long distance running, weight training, ruck marches and calisthenics. Stew Smith is extremely knowledgeable in his physical training and book absolutely displays that. Look no further than his resume to know that Stew Smith’s USMC Officer Candidate School Workout is the real deal.
