hi i am in the process of joining the paras. I am wondering when it comes to selection what the specific standards for para are as people only ever mention on here standard infantry standards and obviously paras is gonna be harder (well i imagine it is!) I know about the run times and am working on them at the moment but i am wondering in terms of weight lifting etc. For example you must do the dynamic lift and static lift etc and just wanna know for each of the selection events what you must score to pass to be a para. how much does a standard rifle weigh as in my training books it says to bergen with 35lbs which is absolutely fine but in reality you would also be carrying a gun so any help would be great. thanks guys.
