Dogs Of War – Typical Sessions

Dogs Of War was a training group that we created to avoid the boredom and grind of the traditional run and gym routine that many of us boys in London were stuck in. We met in the early mornings across all seasons at various parks around Fulham and trained hard across a number of disciplines and utilised several weapons to harden us up. These became religious sessions that were intense, varied and fun, getting us into peak fitness and preparing us for our other sports of passion (rugby, running, cycling and boozing) .

This post is an overview of two typical Dogs sessions with some of the Dogs stalwarts in Paul Hart (Ram), Leo Thompson, Peter Byre, Travis Weston, Dylan Foo and myself.
