Armyfit.mod.uk - Advice required

#1
It may just be me but I can't get my head around the following:-

Alternate running hard then recovering for intervals of 1, 2 and 3 mins

Does this mean....

Run flat out for as long as you can then rest for 1 min then repeat x 2 or does it mean

Run for 1 min flat out rest for 1 min
run for 2 min flat out rest for 2 mins and finally
run for 3 min flat out rest for 3 mins

Cheers

I think that is what they mean, i always found running flat out (100%) the length of a football pitch, watlkin the width, then runing again, for 5 or 6 times, realy helped my fitness and speed. also gets you used to grunning on grass and not just roads

Nope, isn't advanced enough for my liking.
And just how advanced would you like it, bullet?

It's written for people trying to get fit. Not for people who are fit.....

This program was a very good basis, and all the excersices in it are very usefull. However when i did it, i found that 3 days off a week was too many expecialy as you are altenating excersises.

I changed mine around having only one day off, but another day where i just went swimming.
every other week or so i would give myself an extra day off just to ensure i wasnt over training

I think its helpful too. As said previously, I altered it to not have as many rest days but at least if you can follow the last months' programme easily, you know you are doing what is asked of you, and therefore shouldn't have too much trouble once you start training!

Try to improve on it though and do more once your up to it!
