Hello, I am thinking joining the army but I am worried about my fitness. I can run 1.5 mile in 11.30 and do about 30 press ups in a min. Am I way off the required standard?
I am a 21 and male by the way, 5.9 about 13 stone.
Any help or advice would be great.
You'll need to lose at least a minute on your run time
Press ups are 44 in two minutes, which may sound easy, but if you do them in the correct PTI style, they're quite difficult. Situps are 50 in two minutes. have a look around the site, there is tonnes of advice for folks like yourself, and have a look at the army website, it has the basic fitness requirements on there I believe. www.army.mod.uk
