Re: Tabbing

Hello Bees, That training will work your CV and leg/back strength, and endurance, but in preparation for CTC you really don't need to be doing much of that. Wouldn't hurt to do it once a week though.

Re: Tabbing

Thanks fella's,

Got a longback off ebay for £18, put a load of water in it and packed it out with a quilt.

I'll crack on with that.
