I done this again yesterday but only 1 set again but this time I seemed to feel a bit better physically with it than I did Monday!

I’m going to attempt 2 sets Monday and Friday next week.

Few questions on this workout.

Is it better to do less exercises (I currently have 9) and add more sets so say 5 sets of 5 exercises and work on the most used or keep the variety at 3 sets of 9 exercises?

How often should this workout be used in a week based around other workouts if cycling/jogging/swimming etc is already being done to the point you don’t injure/burn yourself out?
It’s a great workout and I’m glad I came across it but due to the intensity just checking if this is something you do on a frequent weekly basis?

This sort of exercise how often is it done such as PT/bottom field at recruit training?

@Royal2010 Any advice on this on how often this sort of workout is conducted at RT?
For the first 9 weeks, you conduct Phys pretty similar to this in the gym before gym pass out. Looking at 284 Troops old time table it's pretty much a little bit of something every day. It's progressive so you get a gym orientation, learn the rules (don't scratch, staying perfectly STILL). Some days are swims, sometimes they are worse than the gym sessions, sometimes they are stretch sessions. So yeah, it's a hangout. Get training :D

Done another one of these sets yesterday and I’m definitely starting to feel much fresher for it aswell as feeling good progress!
I did 1 set and after that I decided to throw in some shuttle runs to replicate bleep test but instead of 20m I left it at 30m and did a total of these 30 times back and fourth at around 60% effort.
So I’ll do this workout again Friday then next week I’ll bump it up to 2 sets and go from there.
