    Hit the nail on the head with yourself. You've absolutely nothing to be ashamed of. We all start where we start fitness-wise.

    All you can do is get up, put one foot in front of the other and do something about it. Beating yourself up about it (or the past) won't get you any fitter!

    Absolute beast then! Haha
    Yeah as long as *text deleted* waist is under 94cm which is the route I’m taking
    I know how you feel being a heavy person makes any of the bodyweight exercises difficult but it’s good your running is coming along and hopefully the rest will soon follow as you drop the weight!
    You will have to check the max weight for those door pull up frames as some of them have max weights in the 15 stone weight!!
    Me personally if pullups you really struggle with you should get a station or as you said one that sticks to your wall as it’s something you want to work on frequently and if you can’t make it to the gym at least you have them at your house which is better!

    Was just funny looking at the workouts from 6 weeks ago that’s where I thought shameful!
    But yeah your right unless you put one foot in front of the other or go out your way to improve yourself nobody else is going to do it for you and the hard work has to come from yourself if you want to improve

    Just completed 3 mile without stopping! I haven’t ran that far as in 1 run for at least 10 years and thought I got carried away by upping it to quick!

    My goal was to get under 25.00 but I didn’t click until I was about to start that’s 12.30 1.5mile which most of mine have been around the 12.50 range! So just wanted to try and complete the run and not think of the time.
    Managed to complete the run in 28.52.
    My breathing was fine could easily talk normal wasn’t breathing heavy or anything but after around lap 8/12 my calves and shoulders started to get tight and seize up a bit very similar to what happened to me 6 weeks ago when I started off doing back to back 400m jogs so I believe it’s just the same issue not having that endurance or being used to running so hopefully in the next weeks these runs will seem like nothing again!

    What sort of time length you getting on the best effort planks?
    I just did 2x 90sec planks and my abs were proper pulling around the 80sec.

    AM - 3 mile run (22:07)

    PM - vPJFT(ish!) - (16 burpee, 25 sit, 16 press and 50 second plank) x 4

    For circuits I'm training specific at the moment by just grinding away at doing more and more volume on the vPJFT circuit to beep.

    Obviously all round fitness is important for Lympstone, but just trying to get the the vPJFT out the way and then will get back to all sorts of other exercises. Any advice or pointers to the contrary will be graciously received!

    A year ago yesterday I went for my first run, I ran 1.10 miles, it took me 11:24, stopped 3 times, and threw up at the end.

    What a difference a year makes!

    Today’s run:

    11.10 miles, 1:24:10, 7:35/mile

    Fairplay fella that a great improvement.

    Just shows that everybody starts from the bottom and with hard work and dedication they can achieve a lot in time.

    Yeah just keep putting one foot in front of the other and eventually you’ll reach your goals. Week by week it’ll get easier!

    Keep it up lads!

    Managed 1 and 3/4 YO VPJFT today (7 sets) felt like my core was about to explode by the end of the incredibly long last minute!

    I wasn’t timing them but I’d guess about 90 secs - 2 mins?

    Is there a way you should be doing press-ups / sit-ups breathing wise? I know when you get out your comfort zone you cant control your breathing really but is there a way where you don’t cut yourself short when you do these?

    Like you say, most people find your breathing will go out of whack when you get to the grind but the general advice seems to be breathe in on the down and out on the up.

    1) Mock VPJFT

    2) Tabatas with 3-5 mins rest between each:
    - Bastards
    - Jump Squats
    - Clean & Press @30kg
    - Walking Lunges @30kg
    - Press-Ups/Jump Squats (4 sets of each to make the 8 sets overall)

    3) 90 Secs Plank & Feet 6" Off The Floor 60 secs as a core finisher (going to start doing a lot more Feet 6" Off The Floor now because not only is it a great core exercise but I remember it's a lot of Corporals' favourite position to stick the troop in when they want to sink a message haha).
