We compete against each other to win the challenge, BUT more importantly to be there for each other in needs & in dire times.  To take the next-step together side-by-side in encouragement!  That's why we FaceBook each other to support and for supports.  This is OBC-BU!

Diet Foods for thought!

My cooking - 3 slices of Low Fat Ham,
Pan-Fried Salmon & 2 eggs (No Yolks)

Sarge Dann Grilled Dorry,
5 slice of Grilled Chicken & 5 eggs (w/o yolks) 

Armin's Grilled chicken breast with Cajun Spice
(Nawal's cooking is always welcoming in OBC-BU)


Adibah's Salmon Steak marinated with Curry Powder
& sprinkle with egg whites

Gunny & Chief's Smoked Chinken Breast
w/ Quag Spread for starter

Chief & Gunny's Salmon & Garlic Prawns

My Thoughts on this
Entering to my 2nd day of the "8 Week Challenge" these are what I'm feeling:
1) Super Duper HUNGRY (Most of them is CRAVING)
2) Restless
3) Exhausted (Constant Physical Workout w/ INFERNO program)
4) Increase Determination
5) Discipline
6) Soft-Spoken (Dun feels like talking much)
7) Work distracted me away from hunger in day-time.

I had been on my personal diet since I started OBC back in JUNE'2010.  I had been cutting my rice/carbo to 1/2 bowl per week, with only vegetables and white-meats.  Sugar consumption removed, I'm drinking coffee, tea, soya milk, barley, and others in its natural form.

I like challenges to discover my true self!

(*Contestants & Participants for This 8 Weeks Challenge comes from Original BootCampers of Australia & Malaysia.)

" The original, and arguably the best boot camp fitness program is run by a man known to his recruits & instructors simply as CHIEF."   The Hottest Workout - Rolling Stone Magazine

How Does ORIGINAL BOOTCAMP training work
ORIGINALBOOTCAMP's Corps Training (pronounced Core Training) is the program that started the boot camp fitness revolution here in Australia. Since its inception in 1991, it has become Australia's most imitated fitness system, yet no other company has been able to replicate the results, or overall experience provided by this innovative program.

A military inspired, outdoor group personal training program that utilises discipline based motivational techniques, Corps Training has been scientifically designed to achieve serious results, seriously fast, no matter what their current fitness level.

In its basic form, Corps Training consists of three, 60 minute sessions each week, for four weeks. The program begins with a Benchmark Workout which allows your instructors to not only judge your current strengths and weaknesses, but to place you into sections with other Recruits of an equivalent fitness level to yourself. By placing you into these sections, your individual Section Commander can ensure that you are continually challenged, without asking more of you then you are physically able.

As the program progresses, each session increases in intensity, in order to ensure that you are constantly improving. Be aware, Corps Training is definitely no walk in the park, but we guarantee that it achieve serious results, seriously fast.

As part of our dedication to providing all of our recruits an inspiring and entertaining way to train, our providers are committed to ensuring that no matter how long, or how often you train with us, you will never repeat the same session twice. That's right. We have recruits who have been training with us for over 5 years now, and it still amazes them that we can still keep coming up with fresh and challenging new sessions, month after month.

Whether you are an elite athlete, or a soon to be ex-couch potato, this program has been scientifically design to achieve maximum results, in the minimum amount of time.

I Enlisted for Original BootCamp Training!

I Took the Challenge: (To Discover & to Challenge my limit to the next level)
I've been an enthusiast on military related stuffs, war-time civilizations history, tactics & strategies, technologies advancements as well as physical fitness training advancement in military personel. 

I am glad to have been introduced by a friend of mine who's also my OBC trainer Mr. Daing (A.K.A Sarge Dann) in the Original BootCamp @ Bandar Utama Physical Training (PT) programme, for me to access my own physical fitness & endurance level and to lose weight.

Level of physical fitness in Original BootCamp are classified under 3 categories based on recruits own stamina & physical endurances:
1) Ranger
2) Seal
3) Delta
* Categories of each recruits are based on their actual physical conditions assessed in the monthly Benchmark Assessment from Ranger and progress to Seal then to Delta, if the condition drops so does the categories to lower the training loads & pressures to accomodate the physical body; however if the condition improves then recruits will be enjoying more training loads & pressures.  The level categorized is solely used to assign proper training load that is better suit the recruits physical body condition.

My time in Original BootCamp @ Bandar Utama
I enrolled in Original BootCamp @ Bandar Utama, Malaysia (OBC-BU) back in June 2010 for Alpha session (0545 morning) with a body weight of 99kg.  After a couple of month of training till September 2010, I had lost 9.5kg which was weighted yesterday.  Since I began my Original BootCamp @ Bandar Utama (OBC-BU) Physical Training 4 months ago back in June, even with the recovery break in between, I had drastic improvements in my Stamina, Endurance & Strength and has been doing Marathon along with my new buddies from OBC-BU.

I went thru my benchmark assessment on my 1st day of training and was placed under Ranger's training for tons of tough and exhausting workout such as Battling Ropes, Tabatas & Cadence (in Grunts, Squads, Military Sit-ups & push-up, mountain climbers) using equipments such as sand-bag & riffle; tons of circuit running and clock running as well as tons of extremely hard-core training style that I've never heard of or seen of.  All these extreme combo helped me lost 5kg in a month time, lowering my body weight to 94kg.  I suspended my training for the 1st half of July for my previously sprained right ankle but continued my training in the 2nd half of July in Ranger's training. 

However, I was totally knocked-out of training in August as I re-sprained my ringht ankle again with a torn ligament (for not resting long enough), the only sollution is to stop my PT for a full month and REST.  When I returned to the field on September for my benchmark assessment and re-join my band of buddies, my training session was really stressfull as my benchmark results placed me for more extreme trainings with heavier training equipments, but I enjoys it very much (getting used to the physical pressures and the work-out conditions); exhausted & out-of breath but I'm happy with it as I had improved my stamina's, improved my strength & improved my endurances, with 2 more sessions to go and I'll ACE September for making an effort in (ACE) 100% attendance in my ORIGINAL BOOTCAMP training attendance.

The training program for Original Bootcamp is pretty much to encourage all recruits to excel beyond their limit, suitable for anyone from "All Walks of Lifes" that are DETERMINE to make a change in their attitude & life; it's for anyone that wouldn't mind putting ur physical body & mind in extreme muscular pain & pressure then u'r part of this TEAM.  I joined this amazing TEAM with only a friend, that's Sarge Dann; but now I have known almost all of the recruits. 

Original Bootcamp training program is for people of all-walks-of-life!  If you'r determine to improve your health, lifestyles, physical body & mind; then you join the right group.  I trained with a group of strangers whom in the end became my Band of Buddies.  We train side by side as a team, in Pains & in Comforts, in Sufferings & in Joys, in giving up & to step beyong our limit, to sweat in exhaustion & to laugh in excitement.

We are Original BootCampers @ Bandar Utama!
