    My body has been so broken down and just straight up abused over these past 6 months, humps in the Marine Corps fucking suck and will push you beyond your breaking point mentally and physically. God I fucking hate humping, soreness after a tough leg day in the gym is nothing like the soreness you get the day after a hump.

    "Yeah, I really feel it today in my legs, the muscle is rebuilding itself bigger and stronger!" = what you say after a tough day in the gym.

    "Oh my fucking god I just took 12 years off my life" = what you say after a hump.

    Well anyways, now that i'm a regular Marine and not a fucking recruit or a "student" at SOI, I get nights off now (sometimes) and can finally start going to the gym on base here at Lejeune. I went to the gym on base for the first time in 7+ months last night and it felt so good to be back there. It was the first time in a long fucking time that I felt "the pump" in my muscles, it felt so good, I felt the same way I did when I fucked for the first time after saving up my boys for 3 months at boot.

    They have these crazy drinks at the smoothie bar with 65g of protein, I got one and took the largest shit of my life.

    After eating MRE's and garbage at the chow hall for the past 6 months, it's tough to get back into the 5 meals a day routine eating chicken breast, tuna, etc. and it's going to be especially tough since i'm infantry and a lot of days i'll only have time to eat 1 meal at night. So what are the best protein bars or some shit I can carry on me that is fast but gives me the nutrition and protein that I need? Protein shakes and whatnot are out of the question, i'm pretty limited to protein bars.

    just try to eat as much as you can (carbs). It seems like it will be pretty hard to maintain a 5-6meal diet, if your deployed or always in the field training.

    Never called it a hump (or heard it being called a hump) in 4 years of Army service.

    [though I did know what he was talking about]

    You know the Ronnie Coleman video of him going around the parking lot with the 225 pound barball doing lunges? Well try doing that for 20 miles at a 4mph pace and you've kind of got the same concept.

    You are walking around with a M2 .50 cal, the stand, your ruck, and about 1500 rounds of ammo? Otherwise, more like 65lb ruck & 8lb of M16 + rounds [except if you are a stinger MANPADS unit where you would have a 45lb missile added on or other specialized jobs like commo, etc.]. You should give the Bataan death march in New Mexico a try (go military heavy...civilian light is only for those who enjoy marathons). It is only tough if you are on a team though [getting all your teammates through that hellish march].
