Always so crazy when after a week of laziness I perform better than before. 5k done in 22 minutes, nothing crazy but my best time before was 21.08 and I was was more exhausted than I was here with more decline too. Just done 30 press ups in one go meaning I'll definitely get around 70 if I do max in 2 minutes.. Swimming lessons soon and thinking about starting at a Nuffield health gym but the price is making me question it... All in all happy with things. Need to order a pull up bar too. Who knew fitness came at such a cost ahh -banghead-

Got my app resumed last week (on hold for what I thought were going to be exams). Using Sean Lerwill’s pass the vPJFT as a rough guide, combining it with some of the training plans from here. Run through vPJFT and some HIIT today

Did you manage to get this sorted? Having the same issue with raised side lunges

I had this happen to me after I didn't warm up properly once before a VPJFT, it took me a week off to fix it, I couldn't do anything that invlolved abs or core due to the pain.

@ALDL9RM @Grimey Arches could most likely be related to psoas issues - considering the RM sit up is very hip flexion dominant as opposed to abdominals it would make sense - the issue in your groin is because your psoas inserts into the lesser trochanter of the femur and allows for hip flexion, adduction and external rotation. All of which are tightly used during the sit up. Stretch it out and strengthen your glutes and see how you get on

3 mile run with hill sprints then immediately followed by a VPJFT, pretty disgusting to be honest.

Final main training session completed before starting ROP on Monday. Apart from a few gainer bits and pieces thats it, well prepared and squared away, ready to go.

Last session ended with hill sprints and a core circuit. Nothing special, just doing the simple stuff well.

Here’s my training board from September..... feel free to ask any questions if there are any (the additional two weeks means the countdowns don’t correlate with the start date....).

Since starting my application back in April, it’s already been 32 weeks, I suppose that’s the easy half done o_O4495AF06-210D-4BFB-8C97-9A807B8F83DC.jpeg

An hour and a half and 15 rounds of VPJFT+...... it wasn’t too bad in terms of toughness or intensity, the duration of how tedious is was was the worst bit aha!
I've never seen the VPJFT incorporated like that so fair play to you, I think I'll have to give it a try myself.

First time posting on here. Yesterday morning was circuits for a little over an hour.

20 to 1 circuit:

Burpees
Squats
Press ups
Sit ups
Lunges
Pull ups - a long way off of doing 20 in a row so I just did maximum for each set, which totalled 65 across the 20 sets.

Evening:

2 mile warm up
10x 100m hill sprints
2 miles best effort return

Today was just a slow and steady 10 miler before work at 9:43 min/mile pace.
