You should be able to run 5 miles in under 40 minutes in 90 degree weather with all ur battle gear on, able to do over 100 push ups in a row over 100 crunchs, and over 100 grass drills or hit-its, that's just boot camp, you should never give up, they will look for leadership and people that will push no matter the scenario. There is no true way to be prepared if you can do those things I named at the top you should be able to get passed the first week, though you will be doing everything with few hours of sleep every few days, and not much food or water, you have to be the best out of the best extreme marksmanship and ability to accuratily take down targets with in seconds of seeing them and working together and being brave is what gets you there. Into the Marines going over sea's, but there is so much more that needs to be done, give it a try it will straighten you out.
