Fitness Programme any good?

Discussion in 'Health and Fitness' started by CivyLoser, Mar 2, 2008.

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. I am a member of the outside world also known as a 'civy scumbags'. I have decided to get fit and it seems that this is by far the best place to get advice. So here goes nothing. I am 30 this year, have done no exercise for 3 years but used to swim for my county and run 10+ miles per week.

    I have studied this forum for a while and devised the following programme and would really appreciate to hear what others think:

    Sun am: rest
    Sun pm: long run

    Mon am: speed swim 45 mins
    Mon pm: weights - upper body

    Tue am: rest
    Tue pm: run - fartlek

    Wed am: distance swim 45 mins
    Wed pm: circuits

    Thur am: rest
    Thur pm: run - 3 mile, best effort

    Fri am: relaxing swim 45 mins
    Fri pm: weights - lower body

    Sat am & pm: rest

    Many thanks

    Can't see any major flaws in your routine, make sure you get plenty of food and plenty of sleep!
  3. Looks very organised structured and positive.

    but very full on if you are coming back after 3 years!

    I think you'll be exhausted by the end of the first week the second will feel really difficult and you'll get ill or give up by the third!

    build up more slowly and you'll see results faster due to less injuries.

    Just my opinion, but everyine is individual.
