Hey, so about three months back i was a scrawny little out of shape guy and i decided that i wanted to join the British army. I get myself a gym membership and have gone 5 days a week, i can now do 50 push-ups and 50 sit ups in the min you get to do each of these exercises, i can best effort run my 1.5mile in 10:30 (reduced from 15:53) I go on the treadmill at 1%incline and i hit the cross trainer and bike lots to, now i want to get my run time down to as low as it can go, i have ADSC on the 13th of September so i have not much time to improve.
I was told that timing and sprinting a football pitch then say it took you 1min to sprint it you get 1min rest time then sprint again, only having 1min rest time each time and doing that 5 times in one session, 3 times a week is good? I do not have a football pitch around me so basically im looking for some new idea's to get my time down sharp.
I am no stranger to the concept no pain no gain so I'm willing to put in 100% effort and try the ideas that you guys recommend. Thank you.
