Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

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

  1. Heyup. Nembie here! I'm down for 14wks at Pirbright. I'm aware at end of basic there are fitness tests, what are they? I know some, 1.5mile run, ammo lift, jerry can lift, swim, pressups/situps? What are the rest? Anyone?

    RMT's are as follows

    lifting a 30kg ammo box to a 1.5metre platform
    timed situps for 2mins
    150m jerry can walk
    1.5 mile run


    1.5mile run

  4. the rmp vary depending on trade
  5. Many thanks for the info/feedback!!!
    Start end of March at Pirbright.
    In response to the info, i have just started the fitness booklet, and my 1.5mile time is 10mins(at adsc)-still 10mins, been out 3times this week. Can do 50 situps(arms folded across chest). 40 pressups at a push - need to work on this, get 20 no bother, 30 taxing and 40 knacked! also 3times this week. Do admit upper body strength isn't good.
    I'm an elderly applicant(not giving too much away and all that)!!
    But went out today on longer run, 3miles, and it was slight sleet/snow up north - did it in 30mins, comfortably, but not at high pace or push. Think i'll need to work on this. Think i'll do more 3milers and increase the miles every week or so.
    At Phase 1 do you have set times for the longer runs to be completed in?
    Do you do the longer runs in full kit or in your hi-tec trainers??
    Any feedback???
