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. Just started swimming regularly, helps having the girlfriend involved too as im more motivated. But wondering if anyone has some pointers/advice regarding gettin fit enough. My run is around 13mins for 1.5miler so I know i need to improve. My upper body strength needs work too.

    Any PTI's/fitness crazies out there? Just wanna pass ADSC and get set up well for basic.

    **I know theres a Fitness forum but thought some of the potentials/applicants here might have suggestions too as this is a more used forum**

  2. At the moment im doing 3mile runs 3 or 4 times a week, then usually time my 1.5 a day through the week. Try cycling aswell, i find that gives me a different form of excercise, also even a long walk at a fast pace is good too. Skipping is also fun lol :)
  3. Il do that. Aye thats why im doing swimming. breaks the routine. Plus swimming comes in useful.
  4. To get good at running = run
    To get stronger = Lift weights in the gym.

    Simple really isn't it?
  5. When was at selection yesterday the Seargeant said run do press ups and sit ups, increasing time/amount every week...try running with weight on back too...
  6. Did he also say anything about learning to spell Sergeant? or Serjeant if your that way inclined!
