    @arny01 How would you go about adapting this program to someone's current fitness level? Is it a case of simply reducing sets, reps & mileage then building up to it or is there more to it?

    The beauty of the program is that it’s your individual best effort! So really it’s just about you pushing your own limits. It is quite a lot of volume on the running side of things for a beginner however. So if your new just go from half volume or lower to suit your own level!

    @arny01 How do you work out how many reps to do each set in the gym? Is it a percentage of your max or is it just to failure?

    Hey @arny01 ,

    IIRC you did this for your bairn for his PRMC. Do you remember how his stats improved?

    Or has anyone else used this for x period and recorded gains?

    cheers

    Dickie

    He improved every week, across all elements specific to PRMC. I believe he achieved an A grade PRMC pass? But not too sure. He came first in the BFT, and did extremely well in the gym tests. He found Thursday difficult, but due to his performance on Wednesday, it gave him the confidence to do well on Thursday. His PRMC involved the hare and hounds and run back to camp, which I believe may have been removed?

    Fast little $&%*$% to come first! Nice one!

    The run back has been scrapped I think not too sure about the hair and hounds!
