Bootneck Nutrition

Napoleon once stated that an army marches on his stomach. Every potential Royal Marine recruit that goes through the Commando course will consume between 5,000 – 6,000 calories per day.

You wont need that many!! But we do advise that the night before race day you prepare with lots of lovely pasta, potatoes, rice, all the white starchy stuff you have been told to avoid to lose weight.

However, if you are serious about our event, then your preparation before race day should include a balanced diet. Our simple advice about nutrition will ensure you have the right fuel to maximise your workouts.

We can help your training with simple recipes and advice that will ensure you are as fit inside as you are on the outside. Make sure you check out our regular blog entries for simple yet delicious dishes.


Train like a Bootneck

All Royal Marines train to be functionally fit. Their role demands that they have strength, stamina and flexibility. Bootneck Bootcamp training videos will give you tips on how to prepare correctly for the type of rigours you can come to expect from the Bootneck Challenge series of OCR events.

From Foundation, Experienced OCR or Nails Commando levels of skill, our training videos will encourage you to improve your levels of fitness.

For those who want to have their own Commando training plan, why not subscribe and we can create an individualised schedule of training for you?
