Fitness Training

A non fiction book by

The Special Air Service is renowned as the fittest military unit in the world and its history is packed with incidents that demonstrate the incredible strength and stamina of its members. Based on the training techniques of this elite of the British Army, this compact but detailed manual provides a range of fitness programmes that guarantee to improve your long-term fitness and well-being.

Adapted from those issued to members of the armed forces preparing for SAS Selection, the training regimes featured are not just about heaving weights and time spent in the gym - the emphasis throughout is on progressive and cumulative exercise following on from a realistic assessment of your current fitness level. All exercise routines are re-inforced with advice on diet-management, stamina improvement and injury-avoidance. Ultimately, there is a full programme based on the Selection process for those who wish to attempt to emulate the levels of fitness demanded by the Regiment.

So whatever your current physical condition or ultimate fitness target, Fitness Training will help you reach your goal.
