hey, been reading posts on here for last few days, but cant really see much info on any girls who have recently been to selection, all i really want to no is things like your run time there, press up/sit up/heaves score?
any help is appreciated
well i can tell you a thew things about selection but im a lad
firstly you do not have to do pressups or situps but you will need to do some heaves
as far as the heaves go there was a lad in selection with me who only done 3 and still passed so as long as you can do a quople there shouldent be a problem
run time should be under 12 minutes and you will be fine
There is no sit ups or press ups on any selection except maybe 5 or 10 in your medical to see if your joints work, although for a woman after 14 weeks of the best basic training in the world you have to be able to do 40 press ups.
Well... I can't really give you info for women but when I was at adsc you had to do gym in the evening for about 45 mins which consisted of pressups and situps and other activities, although you weren't expected to do a certain amount - just try your hardest and don't give up.
If you start out doing to much you can soon lose heart, so I would recommend setting yourself a goal, for example, 20 pressups in a row, but perform 3-5 sets of 20, so in total that would make 60-100 pressups, stick to that method of training and then add on a couple more over the weeks etc..., It's important to focus on proper technique, so, all the way up and all the way down until your chin touches the floor.
If you set yourself a realistic goal then progress your training you will soon find your banging out 50 pressups without breaking a sweat!
Also, don't forget to eat healthy, a well balanced diet!
