One officer's opinion: Marines who can't do pullups are 'broke or lazy'
Jared Sperli stashed this in inequality
The headlines claim that females are weak. Let’s fix it. Welcome to 2014, when every Marine is expected to pull his or her own weight. Literally, that’s the challenge: pull your own weight up to the bar (repeat 3 times).
If you are a female Marine and are performing pullups like a motivator should, do them in public whenever and wherever you can. Females on the pullup bar exposes your brothers to the miracle of female upper-body strength, and it also serves as peer pressure for your sisters.
This is good?
i would like to believe so. it is a good physical test
Wow! So, can I make a conclusion that if I can not do pull ups I can be qualified as 'broke or lazy' Marine? Wow, I never though I'd qualify to be a Marine. Even 'broke or lazy':)
It takes a very special person to be a marine.
One year it was my fitness goal to do ONE pullup. Failed. I had a brain aneurysm that year tho, so I doubt I could qualify to be a Marine anyway. :)
maybe not a Marine, but Joyce, I can help you get to that pull up
