From the military to the Octagon to The Expendables 2, Randy Couture has conquered more levels of badass than most people even dream of and he continues to do so at 49 years old. When he found out he was going to be a dad at 18, the high school wrestling champ stepped up and joined the Army so he could support his family. From service to the UFC, Couture got back to his wrestling roots and took on MMA where he made a name as one of the best fighters to step into the Octagon.

And there was no better choice to be the cover star on our Military Special Issue. Test your strength against the men whose fitness levels can be the difference between life and death with workouts and challenges for every type of service from the Marines to the Coast Guard.
