Bergan Hill Training

Discussion in 'The Training Wing' started by Mundane Amazement, Feb 29, 2012.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

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

  1. Can anyone tell me a good way to add weight to my bergan for training purposes. - Sand, plastic bottles filled with water. Etc. Also I am wantingto buy a good pair of boots to get my feet use to tabbing - any recommendations?

  2. This is the advice you were given by The Duke, fkin listen to him, he knows what he's talking about, forget the boots, weights and bergans!!!


  3. Hi Joker,

    I have taken The Duke advice, I run for miles every other day on his advice. Are you saying that I shouldn't train with a bergan at all? I shouldn't hill tab at all?
  4. Precisely what I'm saying, as The Duke said, the training staff will give you all the advice you need on running with bergans and weight when you get there. Due to H&S, regular recruits aren't even allowed to carry their 1157 back to the block these days. Just keep up the running as His Grace says, but include a few hills as well, just NO BOOTS OR BERGANS as you don't want to injure yourself before you even start.
