  1. Hi everyone.

    I've been doing my training plan for 6 weeks come sunday, and wanted to know what you think about it.

    I got the plan from the careers office and then added things to it. I'm using this plan to get fit for selection.

    It gets progressively harder, and this is this weeks training.


    30 minute steady run

    4 x 1/2 max press ups

    4 x 14 squats

    4 x 1/2 max sit ups

    4 x 14 dorsal raises




    1 minute sprints(80%) 1 minute walk, continue for 14 minutes


    Swimming 50 lengths with 2 sprints every 10 lengths.


    Circuit training

    3 x 15 chin ups

    3 x 15 triceps dips

    3 x 15 press ups

    3 x 15 sit ups

    3 x 15 dorsal raises

    3 x 15 squats

    3 x 15 lunges

    Shuttle runs, 30 second sprints, 30 seconds rest, repeat for 5 minutes, record score and better next time.




    3 mile timed run best effort.
  2. I like the circuit training and I will be nicking that off you and using it myself :p

    What stroke do you use when swimming?
