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. Hey, was looking around on the net for a fitness/running book. After looking around and talking to a few people they pointed me in the direction off "The Paras Ultimate Fitness" book, which they said was good. Now before I splash out has anyone read this book and is it any good?
     
  2. Fighting Fit by Adrian Weale, I can't reccomend it enough.
     
  3. Some swear by that book, but it involves too many weights workouts for my liking.
     
  4. If you think FF is bad for weight training, you should see Chris Ryan's SAS Fitness Book; at least half of it deals with bodybuilding routines.

    Still, for those who are into that sort of thing(me :oops: )there are some good pointers.

    It's also interesting to read the brief note of Ryan's personnal training for 23 SAS Selection: VERY different from anything else in the book, though Ryan admits that he overtrained while building up for Selection.
