    I've found the best way for me is to do as many as I possibly can (til my arms shake) then drop onto my knees and push out more, even if its only one sometimes. definitely helping me

    In regards to this programme, does anyone know how long the rest period is between sets and exercises in the gym session? And also do you complete

    In regards to this programme, does anyone know how long the rest period is between sets and exercises in the GYM session? Also do you carry out 3 sets of press ups followed by 3 sets of sits ups followed by 3 sets of pull ups etc... Or is it meant to be in circuit form, e.g rotating the exercises?

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks arny01 for your quick response, I have my PRMC coming up and this looks like an exciting and fresh new programme to hit in the build up.

    Just to Clarify...

    Weighted press-ups
    Thanks arny01. This looks like a awesome new workout for me to mix up my routine, i have my PRMC coming up in about 4 weeks and i think this will prepare me nicely.

    SO just to clarify....

    weighted press ups (no rest)
    weighted sit ups (no rest)
    weighted pull ups

    (2-3 minute rest)

    Then repeat 2 more times

    Then onto body weight, then assisted?

    Yeah pretty much, there's no rush to go from pressups to situps to pullups, just gather yourself take a condor moment to think about the correct form etc, but yeah take 2-3 mins or longer if you need before you crack on with the rest of the exercises.

    hi, sorry ive only just seen this i havent been on in a while, but simply what i do is i have a pull up bar on my door frame and everytime i walk out i do a certain amount of pull ups, and basically every week i will do the prmc tests on my own, and everytime i increase my pull ups i increase the amount i do, for example, i can currently do about 13 to the bleep, and i do 10 pull ups everytime i leave my room, so when i can do 14 i will do 11 every time and so on. I found that this really improved my pull ups at a good rate, i went from about 8 to 13 in about a month and a half

    Hi fellas, I asked Arny about adding in a loaded March instead of the second 8 miler, as long as I can get the run down under and hour should be fine.
    Few tweaks to suit my personal needs mostly the same.

    Mon-BFT, RMFA
    Tue-8m best effort, gym
    Wed-hill sprints, swim
    Thur-5m, gym
    Fri-8m loaded carry
    Sat-missed sessions/rest
    Sun-rest

    The changes are to make it a mon-fri. I’m a reservist in the army and need to stay on top of loaded carry’s. The other change is 1 less gym session. My weekends are typically taken up for reserve training and if it is I’ll use Friday as the rest day if we will be doing anything physically challenging.

    Any suggestions for improvement?

    Not OP, but I'm going for the reserves, so would be intrigued to hear any insight that may be useful about increasing fitness levels whilst juggling a full-time job!

    that is another question I’m struggling to answer myself. In short I enjoy my degree, if I go back to finish it next September I will have 2 years left and attempt to join rmr then regs after if I get that far or I attempt regulars. If Regs I would replace a couple runs with treadmill for pjft.

    Now lads, daft question, but has anyone found this programme useful for the PJFT. Got my PJFT in 4 weeks and it's been my nightmare for nearly 2 years, just recently started this programme last week, solid but really enjoying it so far!

    Depending on where you are in the process I’d just bite the bullet and literally devote your time to just treadmill running. I think in the build up to mine I did solely interval training on the treadmill for about 4 weeks (with weighted and body weight press ups sit ups and pull ups as a different session) and passed

    Yep, focusing on exceeding the required standard for each individual hurdle is a good plan.

    Do you think this training programme will be ideal for me if I just replace the BFT on Monday with a PJFT instead?

    In my opinion I’d just do different length treadmill runs alternate days with body weight circuits etc. As arny says though - test and adjust with what you feel’s working.

    As an aside, I did the first half of the PJFT as a warm up and then ran as far as I could on the return at the minimum pace to see what fitness level I was at. At first I think I ran 5 sets of 2 mins at the pace, then after a week did 4 sets of 2.5 mins, then 3 sets of 3 and a bit mins and so on until I could run the whole thing. Up to you if you want to give it a go

    @boshness92 Alright mate. Saw you posted a new thread there as an intro, so I've tagged you in this to have a read through.

    You failed your PJFT and according to the RM's who took your RMAD, you are only at 50% of the required level of fitness. The first port of call is to nail your PJFT, get on the treadmill 3/4 times per week and get used to getting your run time down. Also, after you finish the treadmill runs add a max effort set of press ups, sit ups and pull ups to the PRMC beep which can be found on YouTube.

    This site has some excellent advice on training and I've tagged you in this as Arny01's programme is tried and tested (currently doing it myself) and is seeing boys smash their PRMC.

    Skip to the first page on this thread where you can see the full programme. For yourself, I would start at 50% of the volume stated and then work your way up to the full programme in the next few months.

    Hope this helps!
