Principles of Military Training
The two components of a good military training are: its hardness, and its effectiveness. This type of preparation should be considered functional. A soldier should not be a beautiful envelope, a fashion plate cut for the Mr Muscle contests.
A good soldier must have a functional physique : resistant, enduring and rustic. The soldier must then seek to develop other skills such as his endurance in running, his resistance in swimming, his strength with climbing and weight training, for example.
This military bodybuilding routine is therefore not to be preferred more than any other. You only have to use it to work on some of your particular physical skills. We advise you not to neglect your preparation before starting this program.
The training should be carried out for 4 to 6 weeks, three days a week. The ideal being to be able to practice our training every other day.
Here is the military training routine :
- Overhand pull-ups (4x10)
- Squats (10x5)
- Diamond push-ups (4x10)
- Dips (10x5)
- Underhand pull-ups (10x5)
- Bench press (4x10)
- Squats (again) (2x5)
- Military presses with bar (5x5)
- Bicep curls (4x10)
You can add variations on day one and do diamond or pin push-ups (3 sets of 10 reps), knee-to-elbow sit-ups (3 sets of 15 reps), or crossfit sit-ups (one set of 100 reps).
