I got talking to a co-worker today about his boot camp experience, which sounded difficult both physically and mentally. It made me think of a wrestling season, which to me seems comparable in difficulty, perhaps more so physically because of the weight control issues. I would imagine the prospect of being sent off to war to be the ultimate in terms of mental stress, so I pose this question based on physical difficulty only, and as I have no comparison, I would like it to be left to those who have experienced both: Which is more taxing, a wrestling season, or basic training?
