A question we just received was “What are some good Army bodyweight exercises?”. No matter which service you are in – Marines, Navy, Air Force you can easily knock out some pushups and sit-ups and get a good simple fast workout.
We like the MiR weighted vest as it is a good value at $60 (20 lb) and gets great reviews.
Many CrossFit athletes and the famous Bar-Barians can also be seen in their videos knocking out dips and pull ups with the vest.
