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. Thought I would share my attempt to get fit with you in case you would like to try it.


    Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you have plenty of room at each side.

    With a 5-lb potato bag in each hand, extend your arms straight out from your sides and hold them there as long as you can.

    Try to reach a full minute, and then relax.

    Each day you'll find that you can hold this position for just a bit longer.

    After a couple of weeks, move up to 10-lb potato bags.

    Then try 50-lb potato bags and then eventually try to get to where you can lift a 100-lb potato bag in each hand and hold your arms straight for more than a full minute.

    (I'm at this level.)

    After you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each bag.

  2. Monty do I detect a theme to your avatars? Is there something you'd like to share with the group?
