I can't help but note a lot of 'What should I be doing?' and 'Can I take 'insert-rip-off-body-mass-building-product-here' safely?' type threads being started by concerned youngsters worried about not making the required level of basic of fitness before entering training. Did anyone here actually do any phy before going to Sutton Coldfield, or wherever the Jocks did theirs? Or even after that and going into basic/JLR? I recall just turning up and, well, running and getting in within the allotted time. Mind you, there wern't that many porkers around in the mid-80's. Any other phys the army requied was beasted into me over the course of 12 months at Colerne!
