Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hi guys,

    What preparation would you do for the month leading up to Main Board. I'm OK on current affairs, my mental arithmetic, well I don't know where to start so will just keep practising SDT, my fitness is OK, just my sit ups need some work, I can also do about 55-60 press ups.

    I did my briefing quite a while ago, so the incubation period between that and MB is a good 7 months.

    ..what kind of things do you recommend you do a month prior to MB?
  2. I haven't done Main Board or even the Briefing but if your sit-ups need work why not...

    try doing some sit-ups?
  3. I've heard that bicycle crunches are a good thing for your abs (the sit-up muscles, I understand). Why not chuck a few of those in to your routine, as well as sit-ups.
    And, of course, best of luck!!!
  4. 4 weeks out you should be beasting yourself. Both physically and mentally.
