This is a compact, highly illustrated manual of fitness training techniques based on those taught by the SAS.
The Special Air Service is renowned as the fittest military unit in the world and its history is packed with incidents that demonstrated 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 programs 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 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, and all exercise routines are reinforced with advice on diet-management, stamina improvement and injury avoidance. Ultimately, there is a full program based on the Selection process for those who wish to attempt to emulate the level of fitness demanded by the Regiment.
As part of an exciting new series which presents a range of SAS skills in various fields adapted for a civilian readership, this book will help you reach your goal, whatever your current physical condition or ultimate fitness target.
