    I'd cut out the weight training (Just train legs heavy so you've got the strength), replace it with bodyweight exercises (Press-ups, Sit-ups and Pull-ups). Citcuit training is also very effective so keep that in there. I'd also find a local swiming pool and do some lane swimming once a week as swimming is still a big part of the PRMC even though its not scored. Weight training isnt effective as being too bulky and big leads to injuries when running or marching which is what the Royal Marines are trying to prevent by suggesting lots of bodyweight exercises and intense cardio.

    What is your run that you do on Monday and Tuesday?

    Too much gym not enough running, gym tests aside PRMC is majority in the legs and endurance not how much you can bench.

    Make it more specific to the tasks in hand.

    I would just practice it like its going to be on the day. 12 min out (1.5 mile), 1 minute rest, Best effort return (1.5 mile). Make sure you're running on the dreadmill as you'll need to get used to the boredom so it doesn't affect you on your PJFT.

    Rather than focusing on the heavy power-lifting moves i would just practice the body-weight exercises as the PTI's don't care how big you look, they just care about your scores on the tests, and as i'm sure you're aware "Practice makes Perfect" (You've *text deleted* be practicing the 3 exercises till you can do them in your sleep haha)

    If you have any questions ask away, also have you tried to max out the 3 exercises to the beep yet?

    5'10 and 100kg! You must be built like a brick outhouse. That is quite a BMI.
    I would get running and try to shed some of that. It must be hard trying to drag yourself through a mile and a half in under 10 mins.

    There's a saying in the marines "That'll do will never do", until you've started testing yourself to the PRMC bleeps you wont know how much your really have to be doing. Your opinion will definitely change, you need to be doing body-weight exercises as much as possible!

    I'd listen to him aswell, I'm 5' 10 and 75kg and I'm trying to shed a couple of kilos so i'd try to do similar as it would help you smash your PRMC scores!

    I’m 5”8 and 16 stone myself and over short distances I fair well but over long distances my body wouldn’t be able to cope would be just asking for trouble.

    It makes a massive difference to running and body exercises the lighter you are I was 12.8 stone start of the year and everything was so much easier.

    I will say tho try and be careful not to overdo the running when weighing so much as it will naff your knees/ankles try low impact like swimming and cycling to shed some weight off and do running to a certain degree or as you said boxing would be good for shedding the weight!

    P.S stay off the weights!
