    I am in the process of joining the Coast Guard. I wanted to know what I should do in order to get into shape. Running and Swimming are pretty obvious, but are there any particular excercises I should be doing? Another question I have is what is my chance of becoming an MK or a DC? I haven't taken my ASVAB yet and I have been putting it off mainly because i don't know what i need to know. I have a book called "cracking teh ASVAB" by the Princeton Review, it seems to be pretty informative, but it is also a lot of info being thrown at you. What areas would be best to study?

    I, myself, will be joining soon and would also like to know what to expect. You might also want to visit http://www.gocoastguard.com/faq.html. They have some information you might find useful.

    Also, I pulled these requirements off of that site:

    To meet minimum qualifications for graduation you must be able to perform the following:
    PUSH-UPS: male: 29 female: 23 (in 1 minute)
    SIT-UPS: male: 38 female: 32 (in 1 minute)
    1.5 MILE RUN: male:12:51 female: 15:26 (minutes)
    SIT AND REACH: male: 16.50 female: 19.25
    COMPLETE SWIM CIRCUIT: Jump off a 5 ft. platform into the pool, swim 100 meters, and tread water for 5 minutes.

    The ASVAB is most heavily weighted in math. My advice would be to brush up on your algebra. That is going to be what will raise your score the most.

    if you're a decent swimmer, don't worry about that, after the initial swim qual, you might swim twice more just for exercie. running is very limited in CG boot camp, just be in decent shape. the exercies you should be doing till it hurts are pushups, situps, rowers and squats. bring a good pair of mostly white running shoes, nothing too colorful or fancy, and they must be fairly new and very CLEAN or you will not be allowed to take them with you past forming. the standard issued running shoes (go fasters) are $5 new balances you will wear often and are not very comfortable. this also helps when everyones shoes are tied into a big knot, you can find yours that much faster. Also, wear warmups to boot camp as you wont get your official sweats till late in the second day, you'll be sleeping in whatever you wear the first night and wearing it again the next day. The most difficult thing about CG boot camp is sleep deprivation. You are allotted a full 8 hours, minus watches, collateral duties, and fun surprises you'll find out more about in weeks 2 and 3. Keep your eyes in the boat, sound off, don't volunteer and don't let the CC's figure out who you are and you'll do fine. Good Luck.
