Course Details

WEEK 1
SELECTION
1. Cooper Running Test - 2.8km for time
2. Bronze Circle - 3 Rounds for time

The series starts with two separate fitness tasks used to establish if the recruits are physically capable of progressing in selection. First off is the standard Cooper run test, max points awarded for 12 minutes. The second test is a famous fitness routine of the Frogman called the Bronze Circle. Full details of each movement will be given in the brief.

WEEK 2
BOAT CARRY
5km weighted march carried on your shoulder

Advanced: 20kg
Intermediate: 15kg
Moderate: 10kg
Novice: 5kg

The Frogmen would regularly march as a unit with their boats on their shoulders. This challenge is to simulate the boat carry, requiring the participant to march 5km carrying a weight on their shoulders.

WEEK 3
ENDURANCE
Run for time

Advanced: 15km
Intermediate: 13km
Moderate: 11km
Novice: 9km

Endurance is a key attribute for a special forces soldier. This challenge is inspired by one of the long-distance marches from selection that tests the endurance of the participant. Bonus points will be awarded for time achieved.

WEEK 4
ENDURANCE
10kg Weighted weekly distance accumulator

Advanced: 70km
Intermediate: 52km
Moderate: 34km
Novice: 16km

Inspired by the final 70km endurance march of selection, participants are required to run or walk with 10kg weighted vest or backpack and accumulate the set distance to their level of entry within the week. You can take as many workouts as you like to accumulate the distance, however, more bonus points will be awarded for the fewer number of workouts.
