Don't know about you lads, but i find this really really helpful in my preparation for the PRMC and eventual RT. I have'nt got the best head for heights, but just getting used to jumping off things, climbing walls, landing two-footed properly and jumping large gaps, it has improved my all round balance, stability and it is a great workout because you use your whole body. I do simple things like when i'm running, i will climb up a lamp post all the way to the top, control myself sliding back down, run to the next one and repeat! Its great!

Parkour runners work with the Royal Marines and that site has great tips on exercising and nutrition.

I hope this helps you lads, because it has bloody helped me! I recommend that you don't go mad and jump off 10 foot walls, that is'nt really necessary, but things like jumping off 4 foot walls and landing two-footed and getting used to throwing your body about is great!
