I just use known weights. 2 litres of water = 2 kg, bags of flour/sugar etc.

I know probs not best to use dead weight, but it's easier than packing/repacking the bloody bergan every time you want to go! Cheers for the heads up though!

They're £4 from most hardware stores (and anglers stores, for weighing fish) in my experience (having broken several and having to get replacements).

Of course, you can get 25kg bags of sand from B&Q (I got 25kg of Kiln dried sand for £2.70 last week, which is what I carry now, replacing a collection of books and magazines, FHM is particularly good to run with....)

Alright alright! No need for the debate!

Its just that I thought it might fill a need, surely I can't be the only bloke who does these as a part of my personal phys!



Thats for whoever it was who couldn't see it :)

Why the fuck would you want to practise doing a CFT?
Because MATTS state that you must complete 5 training periods before attempting the CFT
Are you trying to Wah me?

With you there, BB. I use a load of two litre bottles of water, made up to 45 lbs. They fill the bergan out quite nicely, and are useful for a drink at the end also. :)

So what happens when the unit is sent out for their 2 MATTS weekends a year with no build up training (either not scheduled or people could not make it) and people are injured or fail it?

I got one off eBay a few months ago and they're great. String it up with a prussic loop over one of them pull-up bar thingies and bob's yer auntie's live-in lover! Great stuff.
