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. I've applied to join as a paratrooper in the TA, went to ADSC, got an A but was deferred for my run time. It should have been under 9:30 but mine was 11:28. Any suggestions how i can improve my running time and how many months should i wait before going again? Thanks.
  2. Have a look in the Health & Fitness forum. There's loads of advice in there.
  3. Is that army fitness thing still kicking about? That was a great training plan.
  4. Stop smoking
  5. 11.28? Try the Girl Guides. 6 months and work harder you lazy man.
  6. 11:28? You can't expect to join the paras with that. When I did a familiarisation visit with them the CPL set a sub 8 min pace and that was what they really expected.
