Seems I'm pretty damn weak in the upper body. Thanks for finding what was wrong.
Should be easily fixed.
Implementing some chest (Chest push ups, dips, chest press and what I think is called the chest butterfly) sessions and shoulder (mix of dumbbell exercises) sessions into the mix. Dropped these originally but now I can see why they are definitely.
Put them in for once a week each (as I'll still be doing the circuits which should still build strength I hope?).
That should help with the strength related issue.
This is what the current (up until I leave sixth form) weekly plan looks like. One major concern is theres not enough rest in there but would this intensity best prepare me for PRMC, RT etc?
I don't want to speak out of term here as I'm not trained to do so but is this a little too much? Have you passed your PJFT yet.
You don't want to destroy yourself before even starting mate. Train specific. Get your 2.4 down to a tidy score and chuck hill sprints in once a week with a circuit. Once you have nailed the PJFT then focus on the PRMC/RT.
The guys that have been there and done it will hopefully clarify but I was doing EXACTLY the same as you and training for the hardest point thinking I'll smash the rest but it doesn't work that way. Credit where credit is due mate. Your a young gun and the training you are doing now will be phenomenal when you proceed but my advise......Train specific for your next task......don't jump the gun.
Thanks I'll tone it down a bit as I definitely don't want to end up screwing up my chances before I even get to the first hurdle
Realistically I'm still at least 8 months away from getting a PJFT as I'm finishing a levels in July and will hopefully be going travelling with friends for a small period of time before applying (although I might cut the traveling out as I really just want to start the application process asap).
I did have the PJFT down to around 9:40 before I had to stop and seeing as I havent been able to go running since August I'm sceptical I'll be anywhere near that.
Thanks for the sound advice.
The PRMC program I done at half volume, with a PFJT substituted for the BFT will suit your needs. After you’ve passed PJFT. Then increase volume. When you get to full volume do for 12 weeks.
I'll get down to that immediately. Printed it off a while ago and used https://www.royalmarines.uk/threads/prmc-training-plan-by-arny01.85153/ thread to make some notes.
Thanks a lot.
