Physical standards in the military

Where did the notion that the military have have the physiques of a strongman/body builder came from? Pretty sure most of them are either skinny fats or toned as frick. Did the GWOT and soldiers abuse of roids in that era ruined the perception of what a soldier supposed to look like?

    From movies starring big name actors who are in really good shape.

    This is all in your mind. You want to pretend soldiers aren't doing strength exercises to justify your weakness. I don't know why larpers are like this. You're not even in the military so why bother? Is it a persecution complex?

      Most people genuinely think the average soldier is supposed to look like a body builder because they saw a few POGs abusing roids.

    Most of them are obese/weak.

    With the push of women into the general military, standards were consequently lowered. In 2004 a German Paratrooper had to perform 7 pull ups to even be considered. Nowadays soldiers have to hang from a bar for 12 seconds. The idea that the military overwhelmingly consists of able bodied male athletes is ridiculous.

      >the standard is lower
      The standard has not changed aside from the accommodation of women, which is their own separate category. Aside from that, the military in combat roles is primarily cardio intensive. Whats important is if you can run within a certain distance and ruck too.

    A fight can be won simply by not giving up while exhausted. Most people go fetal and beg to stop when exhausted. Fitness requires exhaustion. Discipline is the standard for fitness. Imagination, fantasy, and lack of experience qualifies for worse than faulty opinion.

        Running across a flat range in your pc with a heavy load is just as stupid
        Larperators are gay and moronic

          If your PC isn't chinese-made then it won't be damaged by the exercise at the very least. These are not the same.

            Go find a hill and run up and down with your wheelbarrow
            instead of flat range larping you can larp as Sisyphus

                Pure natty bro. I'll hop on gear when I'm old. If you mean without my full kit? Yeah, you just wear your plate carrier and PTs/civvies. Its a morning workout, not SFAS.
