How does one go about preparing mentally for Boot Camp?

Good question, but it’s difficult to answer without experiencing it. One of the things that will happen is that you are going to be on the move all the time. When you’re done with one training session, you’ll often double-time over to the next unless the Drill Instructor is prepping you for drill, in which case you’ll march. This serves not only to build cardio, but also ensures you get used to moving on a minutes notice.
Head games are going to be constant, and over the years they have been tailored to stressing the recruit. Some think that’s cruel, and feel that boot camp should be softer. I’m sure that as soon as our enemies decide to fight only on a 9-5 basis and give “stress reduction breaks” that our training will reflect that.
