Michael Kelso finally got his act together.

We treaded water for at least an hour in basic training. That’s not that hard.

Hey guys! My name's Matt

Hey guys! My name's Matt Mcdonough and I'm an enlisted active duty U.S Marine. I am very passionate about the Marine Corps, fitness, videography, and last but not least, my family. I have a 1 year old daughter who is my WHY and my motivation for everything I do. My workouts usually consist of mostly bodyweight , strength, HIIT, and bodybuilding. I am all about functionality, strength, and mobility.

Remind me, whats the point of this hike? Yall are MT/UT from what I can tell, so when are yall going to be hiking when deployed? The answer, never. Prime example of when moto surpasses common sense.

They should have rear road beards to relieve you so you don’t have to sprint all the way back to the front like that

I'm going to need him to bring a notebook. And write down what he's upset about, read it to himself, and then read it out loud before he acts on it.

Dan Marine

Milesritz Vlog

Good job babe ❤️

Frankie Rodriguez

I remember a 70 mile force march in three days back in 78/79, with 2/7 at Pendelton at the time, full gear and all equipment!! Ended up carrying a mortar base half the way for a Marine in weapons platoon. Some poor s.o.b. tried to pass the line of deuce and halves and lost his life. As well as the lives of a couple of other Marines, when the accident he caused, made a couple of the trucks flip trying to avoid it. My brother M.E. Collins getting a medal for rendering aid to those trapped in the vehicle's. Love to all my brother's.

I’m not in the service but I do harder hikes then that for fun up in the mountains and camping all weekend, now I’m not carrying as much only like 60 to 70lbs and I don’t carry a gun either. I don’t remember hearing how far you hiked, when I go camping I go 6 to 10 miles into the woods

Andres Coronel

Whats you’re MOS

Roy Bladea

I remember the humps to combat town.especially when carrying upper receiver of a 50 tied to a aiming stake by a rag and 2 of us carrying it.the 5 ton and a jeep following.


love it. if I get a chance to listen to some music when on my hiking trips I always choose music like Delta Parole or Guns N Roses, the rawness is the best with nature.

The roadrunner Jarhead

My first battalion 20 mile hike was when we were training before going to Okinawa for 13 months. Our battalion commander was a tall guy and I was only 5’8”. I was practically jogging the whole time. We humped in company formation.

Jacob Gallagher

What is your mos

Daniel Sayers

1995 my last battalion "hike" was a 3 mile walk in the park at Camp Hansen. MP Co, HqSvc Bn, MCB Camp S.D. Butler, Okinawa. Soft covers, H-harnesses, no weapons LMAO!!! XD

Noah Gonzales

East coast marines talk shit about those mountains until they hump em themselves


Pounding a couple table spoons of salt before a hump always helped me not to cramp up.... old smokey, mt. MF, concrete reaper......of course these were on MCRES not strolls in the park....j/k Semper Fi


Memento Mori :DD

Colbert David

That was awesome!

Joseph Levi

Gotta grab some vigilance elite gummys next time ! Good stuff?


Memento mori unus annus


This may sound stupid, but you should do a series of videos on the various MREs. MRE breakdown videos get a ton of views for some reason. Also field gear breakdown as well. Civilians love that stuff, like what a typical ruck load consists of


So no shower?

Jamie Carter

Love the videos, do you know who I am?

Joseph Levi

Wheres the HIIT vids !

0431 Barner
