Making a routine

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'm wanting to reapply for the army.

    But i let myself go a bit, and started smoking again.

    So im now wanting to get fit before i even think of entering the Office.

    So im just scouting around for the best weekly plans that people have make.

    Such as running and weigh training.

    Also with Press-ups and sit ups, I can do around 15-20 chin ups no problem, but with sit and press ups, im pretty pathetic.

    Any sort of routine to get better at 'em, or just throw 'em in when i can?
  2. You must have a structure.

    Read this: aimed at bodybuilders I know but sets out some of the many basic mistakes that can be made.

    Many think joining a half decent Gym and getting a personal trainer reeks of middle class trendiness and so is to be reviled. But that is only so if you are poncing about.

    You will end up with a far better end result if somebody who knows their stuff helps you to devise and then adapts your routines to meet your chosen goals.

  4. Best advice I can give you is find a decent gym and speak to the duty instructor - if they don't have one, don't join that gym - and tell them exactly what you want to achieve. A good instructor will then be able to set up a training plan tailored to your specific needs and abilities. He/she will also be able to advise you on diet.

    Everyone is different, and it's better you work with someone who knows what they're doing on a one-to-one basis.

    Good luck.
  5. I also reccomend britmilfit. I used to train with them twice weekly but I chickened out for the winter months, starting up again in april after my AOSB(B). They are really, really, REALLY good at making you work hard.

    Well worth the money.

    take care
