Oh, well.
Lots of training the body and not the mind going on
Not dedicated mentally once SFAS starts the suck fest from what my conversations with the 18X's out of training in hold over status.

remember you cant ever stop till they tell you to stop ! 100% effort .

One other thing I have seen as a trend. No one is building up their grip strength and the ability to climb a rope ! its all well and good you can meet the standard on the PT test. You do that one time in SFAS. Rucking lots of miles with 50 lbs that is what it is to build up for the walking that is required. But guess what it is building you up mentally as well....
