Great to hear you're feeling both fitter and stronger. I guess that's the good thing about it having took you so long to get back, it's gave you plenty of time to get in shape.

Questions already answered, hope they help, feel free to ask as many questions as you like I'm only too happy to help out.

I must say though, I'm jealous as hell!!

Back home after 5 weeks of shit! Worth it though.

TOP TIP: my fitness is shocking, thought I was doing enough but clearly not! Whatever you are doing, do more! The standerd is high and the fitness it extreamly hard. Picked up a back injury after only tabbing a couple of miles with the bergan and all my exercise kit. Not saying you should tab with weight before you join, but strengthen your back with exercise.

Also been pinged for being on here by the staff.... so be careful waht you say. They will find out!

Not quite mate! Just warning off future recruits! :wink:

Not too much has changed mate, still hard as f@#k but still worth it. The blocks are top notch, when everything is working!

Will PM you mate!
