    It's a good little routine for somebody to get into shape, but other than that it's nothing special.

    Depends what you want to achieve Nabzy.
    If you wanna get fit and trim and loose the fat then teh routoine looks mad and very hard work.

    If on the other hand you wanna bulk up and add some mass then obviously thats alot of cardio there....
    So what is it you are trying to get?

    well on fight authority they recommend that with a 6000-7000 cal diet, so as to bulk up. no specific reasons im doin it jus wanted to try a soldier/fighter type training regime, an see what gains i could make.

    Your not going to make much in the way of gains on an army training routine.. soldiers have to be fit...not massive. In fact many gym freaks fail terribly in the kind of basic training the SAS etc put people through. As you can see from that routine.. it's all about running and bodyweight exersizes.. to build up strength and endurance.. not big muscles. Nearly all of the guys I've met that were either in or had been in the Army/Navy etc.. were pretty skinny. Even when you see US Marines, SAS etc on the News etc.. there are very few that fit the Holliwood stereotype of some Arnie look alike.

    All the guys I've seen who passed the Navy Seal test tend to be very muscular looking guys - though you could argue whether this is cause or effect.

    in tabs,yomp speed marches on the exercise ive been on the US guys tended to be over muscled for the job they had to do muscle bound,
    a lot of elite forces in the uk are very wiry indeed but strong,
    besides which its hard enough to hold any mass for time whilst out in the field on the UK forces ratbag's
    if you read up on any US/UK based op's it will more often than not state the guys were massive but not cardio fit in comparisson to our guys
    as for the ones ive come acorss ok but not as good as the hype wopuld lead you to belive
    and not as good as ours lads but thats just from what ive seen myself nice enuff fellas most of em tho and the southen yanks are well funny nice guys
    anyways i dont wanna take this thread off the topic
    its an ok foundation workout but not for serious BB
