Sarge Dann arrived from Australia yesterday on Sunday after graduating from the Hell Week and earlier today commanded the Alpha, Bravo and now the Zulu platoon. Just as we all thought Sarge Dann would burn out or fall sick from training-overdose.... he came back stronger and fitter!!
Corporal Sandy were the other instructors in-command...... and I... the paparazzi hehehhe..
After the warm-up, Sarge Dann divided the platoon into two sections with the new comers partnering with the OTAI (Old Timer) for the customary Benchmark Assessment.

Everyone concentrates and listen to Sarge Dann's instruction.
Otai John Chuah earlier had his benchmark assessment done at BU Alpha... and unsurprisingly, he beat his benchmark assessment PB (personal Best). John Chuah is now on his 6 consistent month at the ORIGINAL BOOTCAMP.
Almost ALL OTAIs improved their PB benchmark assessment timing.
OTAI Jun King performing a perfect squat during assessment. 10 repetition of Pushups on toes or 15 on knees...
Jun King going very strong even after a few laps.......
Azman Dahlan, an old friend of mine re-connected at the ORIGINAL BOOTCAMP MALAYSIA. OBC is not just about getting healthy... its a circle of people sharing the same passion to get healthier, fitter and better looking.
I wonder how Jun King kept his energy to be cheerful while doing the benchmark...
Ryan... off-workout for a few weeks but still blazing through the runs..
Otai Liza.. one of Zulu strongest
OTAI Harley-Davidson Raja Affandi Jamaludin.. my unknown neighbour at Sungai Penchala but first time met at OBC-BU. Raja Affandi, the July SOB (Spirit of Bootcamp) is one of OBC-BU inspiring recruit... when everybody was dying from exhaustion.. he will be cracking jokes...
OTAI Mohd Arief Mokhsien lost 4kg during his first month bootcamping and a very determine recruit without missing a session even during fasting month. His formula to lost weight.. is to arrive late during session and get extra Grunts... From the first day Mohd Arief Mokhsien started, he now has one of the best forms and technique.
Nawal Aini Zulkifli.. encouragin her fellow comrades..
This Sarge Dann is one instructor that you can never see him 'still'.. he will at one end at one instant and at the other end almost instantly. When you feel you are slowly pacing yourself.. he will immediately appear behind you screaming.. elevating the adrenaline to pace-up.
Otai Liza and Otai Afeeza Abdul Halin...
"I DID IT!!!" screamed Otai Jun Kin.. still cheerful after the first circuit of the benchmark assessment
Corporal Sandy... waiting at the 'gate' to record the time!!
Check out Otai Mohd Arief Mokhsien's perfect pushups....

Well Done to those that completed the benchmark Assessment... and Congratulation to those the improved their PB. New recruits that was unable to complete the Benchmark Assessment, it is Sarge Dann & the instructors duty to make sure you improve and complete the next assessment...
