Haha, they all are self promoting...its the way they brainwash you through training. They pump you up and make you feel invincible and better than anyone around you. I bought it for a while then soon realized it was ego driven and good recruiting. I also realized non of them are as good as they say they are. Now Ive never had combat so i have to only hold an opinion up until deployment (I was 1 month from deployment with my team). I never felt it was as cool as they make it out to be...grass is always greener you know. Also there is a guy that did SF, Ranger, SEAL training. I personally know of a couple guys that i worked in my platoon that had done the marines top dawgs (they are not becoming part of SOCOM I believe), had done the Ranger course as well...he made it its not that big of a deal ... Ranger school is 3weeks or so.. To become a SEAL bud/s is 27 weeks, then 16-18 weeks of advanced training...I also met AF PJ's they sucked up to us alot, Jump school the instructors tried buddy budding us as well. SF is prolly the closest thing to the training and quality of men as SEAL's imo. They are more specialized in language training I believe, rangers are just a small gut check..im sure lots make it through there, not knocking him but is a cattle drive, and yes the cream of the crop show up for that ranger contest on ESPN.
As for the guy that went through all the courses, he wrote a book on it..i bought it and read it a couple times, he said Rangers was dealing with living like a scrounge for a month on one MRE a day... SF was i cant remember but cooler than Rangers thats for sure. I think it was more academically challenging if i remember correctly. SEAL Training was the one he did last at age 28 i think, and he said it was the hardest/longest/toughest physically than the rest. Im not beefing anything up im taken it verbatem. www.navyseals.com....maybe its in there ebooks. I enjoyed the book before i went through training.
I dont know what else to say cuz i dont really care haha i thought id fill you in on what i percieve it as to be true right now.
NOW BACK TO MY INJURY lol
I went out today i cant remember if it was 2 or 3 days rest..im stupid and figured id see how i felt.
I worked on RIStars mechanically post for Tall and drive. I worked on T my cocked position, I worked on my follow through(which i tend to do a brad penny arm stop after release...just the way it feels and what i see him throw like). I worked on landing on a bent knee, i worked on not arming it... I threw about 80% for about 70 pitches... My bicep didnt hurt at all, I think it was cuz i wasnt T'ing up. So that went away for time being.
My arm started to kinda feel tired/soreish near the elbow, id say near where the forearm muscle meets the elbow. It wasnt that bad it just seemed to become sore a I threw more. Might just be a different set of muscles being worked since the mechanical change.
Anyone with thoughts can interject. I think that was my last session before I pack up for school...maybe one more session of about the same amount come Monday. All i threw today was 4 seamer...at first i knocked out 6 perfect strikes near where i was looking. Thats a HUGE change vs just a week ago.
Again Ill get video in about a week or so. Any experience advice etc is appreciated.
