I found an SAS Training Regime book, and it had pictures of how it can get you in shape in 6 weeks, quite imrpessive. It's fairly high intensdity, but seeing as it's written by someone who's been in one of the toughest elite fighting forces in the world, I thought it may be worth embarking on as a training regime. What do you all think?
depends on what you mean by 'in shape'. you can drastically improve your physical condition if you have a good, lean starting point with good genetics, hard work, and good nutrition. The important thing is to remember Rome wasnt built in a day; your results will be limited. 6 months on the other hand...

Well, the military special forces are really good at creating an endurance athlete... The marine corp can turn you from a fatty to a lean machine in 13 weeks. The problem is, not that it is a real problem for Military functionality, is that you won't get large and you won't get real strong. I mean, that is relative... You will be good at moving your bodyweight around, that is for sure... Endurance is what they stress the most, both mental and physical.

What's the attraction to the SAS regime, the promise of "shape" or the promise of shape "in 6 weeks"? If it's the latter then quit now. Shortcuts aren't what you should be focusing on this early in the game. You've yet to master the basics.Originally Posted by Nickthebassist

Military fitness programs are specifically geared towards the fitness the military needs; that is, running mile after mile, hauling heavy gear, and being able to hump a 100 pound pack 20 miles after two days of no sleep. As far as 6 weeks...I imagine that is meant for general, everyday fitness.

take a look at the SAS selection process. These guys are chosen from the whole army as the most elite of the elite. They are already in better shape than any of us will ever achieve before they even start SAS training. If the guy who wrote the book was sas then he would already have the benefit of incredible genetics and you cant necessarily assume what works for them will work for a normal human. Besides SAS soldiers are not "big" if thats what your hoping for, a bunch of 250lb musclemen would find it difficult to blend in in undercover situations.
However if your aim is to infitrate terrorist organizations, carry out covert operations behind enemy lines, and generally get shot at and possibly maimed/killed, then the SAS is the way to go.
Well said. I have a friend who is a Ranger. He is about my size and can kill me on pushups, pullups, bw stuff. When it comes to moving iron though there is no contest.Originally Posted by ArchAngel777
