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:

  2. You need the days (or two) rest.

    If you have been training regularly, and not using maximum loads, you *can* train every day without any down time, but it's better to train every other day weights, that gives your muscles a day to recover. Training without recovered muscles will hinder improvements.

    On the off-day, stick a run in or something. Can do CV work daily.
     
  3. Sorry to hear about your mum mate, hpoe all works out

    If your trying to increase the number of heaves, or pull ups you can do, I would suggest getting a cheap pullup bar, whacking it in a doorway, then knocking a few out every time you go past

    If you do this, you'll soon be able to do more than 4 easily, as without realising it, you will be doing quite a number in a day.
