I refer to my previous reply to your previous similar question. Search through previous threads in this section. Your concerns have been asked and answered before... :roll:

Erm, practice!
Don't do numbers (eg 50 situps 40 pressups etc etc).
Every day, do as many as you can until you feel sick and then stop.
Every day you will do more without being number concious and every day you will be much fitter.

That was as told to me by an RM corporal after passing my PRC in 86.

I find clamping a vinyl disc onto a metal Avid platter then carefully placing the stylus onto the surface of the record via the tonearm and turning the PSU "on", quite sufficient exercise for one day. I also find counting to ten as the platter speeds up, before placing the stylus on the surface, help enormously! :biggrin:

Blimey, 86 is a dim and distant memory mate! Erm, probably around either March or September/October because I remember lots of rain :)

i think i james i breast stroke is recommended because it builds more of the major muscles such as pec,shoulders and at the same time helps in increasing lung capacity as well there fore overall fitness is improved one thing i do is fast walk on a treadmill with about 10 kgs in either arm doing armcurls for about 20 mins,but check with your gym if you can do that ,the chances are the bigger national ones wont let you but best of luck anyway

another question, on the RMC website it says when swimming use breaststroke. why not front crawl?? anybody know?
When you get to do your cliff assault training you'll also have to cross a ferkin freezing great big quarry with marching order (personal wpn, FFO [full fighting order] + bergen). Do not attempt to crawl across, not because you will drown, although you might once your weapon caves the back of your head in, but because the MLs will beast the shit out of you if you do. It's also a good idea to swim across with your bergen in front of you and with your wpn resting on top :thumright:

Joe's right about boxing training, but why not sign up to the fitness regime on the RM site as well? HERE

PS You've now used up your unofficial quota of dumb questions :thumright:
