Royal Marines Commando Preparation Cycle

Royal Marines Commando Preparation Cycle

This training cycle has been designed specifically to prepare you physically and mentally for the Potential Royal Marines Course (PRMC). The primary emphasis is placed on improving your aerobic capacity (1.5 Mile Run), strength endurance (Press-ups, Pull-ups, Sit-Ups), and most importantly, your durability.

This cycle alternates between 6 and 7 days per week and gives you the confidence to perform in the physical testing phase of the PRMC. By tracking your improvement throughout, we can ensure constant incremental growth in your preparation.

This programme is perfect for individuals who wants to best prepare themselves to pass the PRMC and make a difference beyond it, all while improving movement mechanics and reducing their risk of injury during basic training.  This programme will give you the assurance that you have done everything you can to be ready for the challenge.

The Royal Marines Commando Preparation Cycle assumes that individuals are capable of completing a 1.5 mile run sub 15 minutes and can perform a minimum of 10 Press-ups and 1 Pull-up. If your current ability is below this standard, we recommend training our Tactical Athlete Fundamentals programme to build a foundation of strength and conditioning, prior to joining this cycle.

If you have passed the Potential Royal Marines Course then we recommend training our Tactical Athlete Conditioning programme to prepare you for starting Royal Marine Commando training.

Having studied Sports Strength and Conditioning at MSc level it was awesome to see such a well planned PRMC program set out for a tactical athlete. I knew I could trust Stoic conditioning and their programs and would recommend them highly to anyone looking to join the forces. Top class!

I’ve used a couple of BS plans before and they don’t come close to touching this one!

Firstly just want to start off by thanking you for the quality job you’ve done with the Royal Marines Training Plan. I’m getting ready for my POC, and it has completely transformed my training. As a sports science student who has been playing rugby and lifting for most of my adult life I thought I was reasonably switched on with my training but this plan has honestly taken it to another level. I’ve used a couple of BS plans before and they don’t come close to touching this one!
