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. does anyone know / have a link to what happens at basic training. Eg day 1 intro ,week 4 day 1 "" mile run,week5 drill

    I remember reading it some were but can't find it so if any one could tell me / knows link.

    I read a post from someone at basic in week 5( nice one for joining rifles btw !! I am too) , could you tell me what happened in those 5 weeks what mile runs , etc

    Also a bit off topic, why do peaple mention sean bean(Sharp) and the rifles...I kinda no but....

  6. You do RMT's (if they still do them) or a PFT.

    The runs are split into ability groups ie: fast, moderate and sloth :wink:
  7. Does anyone know what fitness tests you have to do before you can start training ?
  8. Yes, 1.5 mile run , pulls ups ,jerry can ,ice breaker,45 min pt lesson (realy hard)
