Training for PRMC

#1 Post by potRMC » Tue 23 Jun, 2009 8:53 pm

hello there, new to the site so thought i'd say hi first.
anyway, i've got my PRMC coming up in a months time and kinda getting lost in the best way to train.
Heres my current schedule:

Monday: Gym = 3 mile run, Bodyweight exercises, Swim
Tuesday: Gym = cycling/rowing HIIT, bodyweight exercises, Swim
Wednesday: Gym= same as monday
Thursday: Gym = Max press ups, sit ups, pull ups. Swim
Circuit class in evening.
Friday: Gym = same as monday & wednesday
Saturday: Gym = same as tuesday
Sunday: REST DAY

Bodyweight exercises is usually = Press ups = 65, 3x30. Sit ups = 80 or 100, 3x40. Pull ups = 6 down to 1, then back up.
Swim is usually between 50 and 80 lengths.

i want to know whether this is sufficient for my training for PRMC. whether the bodyweight exercises should be done in circuit form or sets.
any suggestions on what else i can do?

many thanks, Dan.

when you say gym= 3 mile run, I take it you mean you are doing that on a treadmill?

if you are I would suggest you start hitting the roads and hills as running on a treadmill is a lot different from running outside. I would also recommend doing some hill sprints.

hope that helps

cheers for the reply's lads. i will check out that other website also.
the reason im doing my running on a treadmill is because im recovering from shin splints but should be back road running fairly soon.
i do alot of swimming so 50-80 lengths is quite easy and not as boring as you might think!!
cheers.

If anyone needs help training for the PRMC, Commando Conditioning run by Sean Lerwil, the guy who wrote the Royal Marines Fitness Manual, has just released his 'Smash The PRMC Pack'.
