Hi ive only just decided to start my application but dont think I can go go do my PRMC for another 8 months when I finish college so ive got plenty of time. I wanted to work out somesort of training routine but dont know where to start.
I already visit the gym 3-4 times a week but does anyone have any suggestions where I should start?

Cheers

I'm personally starting to avoid the gym.

Your best bet is to get used to doing some running and swimming plus press ups and sit ups whenever you can.

Have a look through the forums and I'm sure you'll find a routine that fits what you're looking for.

Well *text deleted* ive been following this programme but i think it starts of to easy it depends on your fitness.

• . If you are thinking of joining the marines, be aware that your effort, enthusiasm and all around mental toughness will be tested just as much as your physical ability. Not just anyone can become a Royal Marine.
• b. This can be a very tough program, even for the fittest bodybuilders, so if you feel dizzy or experience any pain or discomfort, you should stop immediately and contact your doctor. If you have any medical condition or injury, consult your doctor before beginning this program.
• c. If you cannot complete one weeks training, repeat the previous weeks training instead.
• d. A good diet is VERY IMPORTANT. This program will not work without a healthy diet.
• e. ALWAYS warm up before exercising!
• f. ALWAYS cool down after exercising!
