I'm going in the paras and passed ADSC a couple of months ago, I got pretty decent scores for the fitness, 10 heaves and 8:29 in the 1.5 mile run. Anyway, I got my start date for 9th August so I've got about 8 weeks to train, I'm just wondering if I'm doing the right sort of prep. I used the 6 weeks to ADSC programme before going to ADSC (you can find it somewhere on the paras website), but now I've come up with my own programme starting for this week (I'm on the third day now), here it is. MONDAY MORNING: 30 MIN RUN MONDAY AFTERNOON: WORKOUT TUESDAY MORNING: 8 HILL SHUTTLE RUNS (100M SPRINT, 100M JOG) TUESDAY AFTERNOON: WORKOUT WEDNESDAY: SWIMMING (35 LENGTHS) THURSDAY MORNING: 45 MIN RUN THURSDAY AFTERNOON: WORKOUT FRIDAY MORNING: 2 MILE RUN (BEST EFFORT) FRIDAY AFTERNOON: WORKOUT SATURDAY: REST DAY SUNDAY MORNING: 2 MIN PRESS-UPS, 2 MIN SIT-UPS, MAX HEAVES SUNDAY AFTERNOON: 1 HOUR RUN The workout is max for first set, then half-max pyramids for the next 3 sets of these exercises: press-ups, sit-ups, squats, chin-ups, dips, half sit-ups, shoulder press (with weight) and pull-ups. I just want to know if I'm going the right way about it, as in am I doing too much of something or not enough of something, or is there something I've missed out but should be doing ie bergan workouts? Obviously I mean to make it harder as the weeks go on, and mix it up a bit (like doing a bit of rowing instead of swimming or something like that) but I'm just wondering if this is a decent programme to follow because I'd like to be as fit as I can get without overdoing it before I go in. Any advice would be much appreciated, cheers.
