Treadmill - BFT

Discussion in 'AGC, RAPTC and SASC' started by ExPara, Feb 10, 2004.

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. Does anyone know how to simulate a BFT on a treadmill?
     
  2. What a treadmill :!: :!: where do you put the bushes to hide in untill the group come around on the second lap :?:
     
  3. Run like Billy-o for 1.5 miles on the treadmill or, set the machine at about 6mph to start with - 1.5 miles in 15 mins , working up to 8-9 mph and beyond.

    To simulate the activity better, have a cigarette 1 min before the off, or do a shedload of situps, so you're in friggin agony - oooops warmed up before you get on the bleeding thing.
     
  4. Your bog standard treadmills max out at about 16Kph, running 2.4 K (1.5 mile) would be done in 9 Minutes 30 (ish) if ran at 16 Kph.

    Its just a case of getting you calculator out mate
