From the last page, you said you got sprayed with OC for a certification... what's OC?

Sounds like you're doing well out there.
Pepper spray, also known as OC spray (from "Oleoresin Capsicum").

It is terrible.

How do you feel you're holding up with all the Army Platoon PT along with Wendler's 5/3/1?

It's only been a week so I feel like I'm doing alright right now. The weights are pretty conservative (as 5/3/1) recommends so I'm not hurting bad from the sessions. I'm able to eat relatively well too and I have protein, Flameout and ZMA. The PT in the morning isn't too bad and I'm currently on a "no run" profile so that will give my feet a break.

No PT, MK19 and 249 range today.

Ended up bashing my elbow pretty good getting in the turret today, left arm from the elbow down is somewhat swollen and can't bend my arm past 90 degrees without shooting pains. The medic thinks I just bashed up the ulnar nerve in a good way and said if it's not improved soon to see the doctor. I just can't seem to get through a month or 2 without getting hurt!

*You can rest in a pike position (the top of a push up) but once you can not do push ups any longer and need to rest on the ground, a penalty is counted and a 40 yard sprint must be completed.
