The Marine Corps knows that it is consistency that allows Marines to stay in great shape. Marines typically exercise daily and although the daily workouts are not as demanding as other hard core workouts you may find, the purpose of these workouts is to help the Marine maintain full body health and fitness.
With this workout, you will perform a set of calisthenics that will get your heart rate up and help to develop and maintain muscle endurance. Followed by these exercises, you will be ready for a steady run that will leave you feeling great and ready to tackle the day (assuming you perform this in the morning like the Marine Corps does).
