Part of a new series which presents a range of SAS skills for a civilian readership, "The SAS Active Library: Fitness" is a compact but detailed manual for improving your fitness, based on the training techniques of the elite of the British Army. The training regimes featured have been adapted for a wider audience from those issued to members of the armed forces preparing for SAS selection. They are not just about heaving weights and grunting but also cover diet-management, improving stamina and avoiding injury, elements that are relevant to anyone undertaking an exercise or fitness programme. Throughout the book, the emphasis is on progressive and cumulative exercise regimes, following on from a realistic self-assessment of current fitness levels. The training routines are re-inforced with dietary and weight-reduction advice. The book also provides a detailed insight into SAS selection processes and suggests typical training programmes. It was written by one of the best-known and most prolific former members of the regiment.
