The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hi basically i love challenging my self regarding fitness.At the moment i train 3-4 times a week at doin cv from tredmill,bike and cross trainer as well i doin weights and sometimes cross fit circuits.On top this i train and help teach thai boxing at nights during the week.Recently i was told about the rm fitness tool which i thought sounded good and gave a new challenge but after looking at i was looking at ways i could tweak it a bit with adding new stuff to it to make it little more challenging or just different?
     
  2. And your point is...?
     
  3. Double away to your local AFCO/online application thingy and sign up for the Royal Marines, that may make your training regime more challenging/different. However judging buy your post, you'll breeze it! ;-)

  6. Stick 80kg in a Bergen and yomp 20 miles in 6 hours, if you can hack that you may have a chance of progressing to the hard stuff.

    Think I'd need a whiskey myself after that feat.

    Burp, cheers.
     
  8. Easy stuff... the whisky I meant...
     
  9. Do it underwater? Or join the RM and see what real fitness is if you have the balls instead of boasting about your fitness on an internet forum.

  10. By the thread title, do you mean American marines some other organisation or the real thing, The Royal Marines. Remember with Royal Marines it's not all about fitness, you have to be able to out drink matelots.

  11. And drip about how much harder it is to get promoted than us. Take the piss out of overweight chiefs, drip about being embarked forces and constantly drip about people on the biff. I am sure there are more but these are the main ones that our RM go on about day in day out.
