I know some lads who just passed out and they went straight to sailsbury to do a CQB course, combined services i think. Anyway it was on the new CQB methods, long wall, short wall method. Not sure if it was just a trial because he mentioned they were being used because they were straight out.

Depends what sort of training your doing? Ive done a few 3 milers rounds around a 400m track because it gives you a good idea of your min/mile.

Ive just passed out with 965 and still do the specifics given to me from the RI's for my back. Id say keep plodding on it ...

Circuits in Hunter

I'm currently in 1 Troop Hunter Coy and am bored of following the generic wall fitness chart that only involves supersets of dumbells/barbells. Has anybody here been in Hunter and done a circuit in the gym they found worked well?

That bad rep went a while ago. Well I've just left 953 now with a stress fractured hip and gone to Hunter 1. I'll be there for 9 months as well. We were quite bad though to be honest, most of the beefers have gone now.
