The bigger guys most certainly contain the guys who used to lift prior to boot. I don't know how ait works but if they allow protein shakes, I'd start drinking three shakes a day just to add mass. Since you are 140lbs, I'm guessing you are fairly short. Your biggest problem is going to be short leg syndrome. Now, being short also has its advantage when it comes to log pt and other group pt sessions.
I'm actually just under 5'11, so I'm no Smurf when it comes to PT

ALRIGHT! Reviving this thread to let ya'll know that I ship on Monday! Been working out, running, rucking and hiking day and night for the last few months, trying my best to get ready for the suck-fest ahead. Thank you all for the tips and encouragement, and I hope to maybe see some of you down the road!
