Depends on a lot of things but you have to pass a recruit selection course (RSC) including these (heaves, run).
I did the run in 11:30min and was second to last but passed so thereâs an idea and I think you have to do about 3 heaves (palms facing you) You also have 2 electronic measurements of upper body strength and have to lift two different weights above shoulder height (imagine loading a truck with ammo and its the same principle). I think these two weighed 45 and 55kg and you lift the first then the second.
It was nov last year when I did this so someone correct me if Iâm wrong.
By the end of phase one I believe you have to do the run in under 10:30 for infantry but as long as you have created a foundation of fitness before you start phase 1 (enough to pass the rsc) then the pt will undoubtedly help you improve
Thats expected if your running often and hard, your muscles will return to original size when your pumping out heavy weights as they will expand under the pressure, when you run its all cardio and running is the best way to lose weight, youll still be able to life your weights and more importantly youll be able to crack that run time too. Dont live on looks in the army youll probably get pretty massive anyway
Alreet, I'm hoping to join AFC Harrogate in September '08. I've completed the BARB test and my RG8s have been cleared I just need to wait on a date for my 1st interview. My question mainly is aimed at the jerry can lift you undergo at ADSC - is it true that if you drop them, you fail ADSC!?
