    If you can do it on heavy legs and slippy ground you'll smash it when prmc comes

    @LilInac for press ups, I found variations like weighted press ups or decline press ups helped me, as well as heavy bench press finding around a 5/6 rep max and doing 3-5 sets of that helped me go from 30 to now 50

    Tried to do the 1.5 mile run. Got to the mile at 7 mins and 47 secs when I had to stop due to shin splints. After waiting for a minute, I was able to finish it with the back of my legs roaring with every step I took. I am certain I can do the running the PRMC and further training can throw at me, but my legs just start to spite me.

    Doing push ups on the table every time you boil the kettle also helps to build up. Don't stop until the kettle does.

    lightweight squats 50kg 3sets
    Deadlift alternative 70kg 3sets
    Lightweight leg press 150 3 sets
    Hamstring / leg extensions 3 sets

    Yesterday I practised my PJFT in the local gym (due early April) and got around 12:10-:12:30 for the first and around 8:50 for the second, one minute rest inbetween. So great news as far as I'm concerned.
    Rest of my time spent in the gym was mixed and convoluted. Bench press, abdominal scissors, bicep curls, pull ups... Doing cardio before strength training though makes the latter a lot more difficult for high reps.

    Great work! Sub 9 return very good, just wondering if that’s okay what was your stats on your pjft when you first started?

    upper body session with accessory lifts bench,lat pulldowns, bent over rows, face pulls and some more.
    Pjft today on road/uneven ground today,
    Started with some stretches I have never stretches in my life before running if I’m bein honest youth thinkin I wouldn’t get injured! Bodyweight squats
    Standing hamstring stretches 3x3
    Quad stretches 3x3
    I t band stretches 3x3
    All for 30 secs found them great Better to be safe since that last knock on my knee I don’t *text deleted* be taking breaks, first pjft in about 2 ish weeks at a good effort
    Managed 14:30, 1 min better since the last so that’s good! Still a lot to go but seeing progress is great..
