#1
Hi guys, i just had my RSW and did pretty well i think, 1.5 miles in 10.25, 63 press ups and 53 sit ups, now onto RT 1 in a week and half :)

YAY for me

Now you need to improve those scores! at TAFS2 or w/e 1, dependant on system in place , and again on w/e4 or 6! But well done anyhow agood score

Yea i know, i plan to improve greatly, just happy cos even though its not great it is the required time needed by the end pretty much, so i just have to improve on it :) i have never really ran before so didnt expect to get in the desired time on my first go, i'm hoping to get my time downto about 8.30 by rt 7

and thanks, i thought my name was simple and to the point, lol

I thought PTIs had to the run in under 10.30. As for press ups old dinosaurs like me only do 37ish, so I would expect a potential PTI to be knocking out a lot more.

From what I'm told there's nothing to the vest, it just takes a bit of filling!

I think grumpypickle is refering to himself being assessed by a PTI on his PFA times and press up/sit up scores.

Did you go to beckingham for your selection? because i've just had my RSW aswell and have RT1 in two weeks.

Well done anyway,

I get it, but am pleased to say I don't use it all mate. Mind I have suffered a bit over the Christmas.

Mid-life crisis, some ride motor bikes others get tattoos. Me, I feel the need to drink beer eat crap, while at the same time.... Sorry I forgot.

I was referring to PFT assessment to get onto the PTI course!

'she' - is working VERY hard to increase the no of press ups I can do! - girls my shape arn't built for press ups! i have twigs for arms! officially i get 12/13 mins but take less- 10.30 is still alluding me

- got the bike no tatoos but too much Christmas has had an impact!
 
#15
Yes chris, mine was at beckingham, just pm'd you mate.

Grumpy... are you good looking? lol dont worry about it, practice makes perfect and i'm sure you'll get the hand of the press ups

It would seem devilish, that Grumpypickle is in fact a lady. And that I understood the first time quite correctly, that she is in fact about to do the assessment for the PTI course. And not a PFT.

I would be very happy if I could do 10.34, but as previously stated 10.30 is required for PTIs. (My PTI friend at the RTC, tells me this). I burp, fart and piss my self every time I go round. It encourages people to pass me!

Unless otherwise posted I will assume you have humbly apologised to both Miss Grumpypickle and myself, Devilish. :wink:

lol what sort of dumb question is that! of course! ;-)

I've enlisted a personal trainer - Putting in the training doesn't worry me !

Press ups are just not designed for skinny people!
 
#18
Why not? i'm skinny, well have no fat, all muscle baby, lol. what you need to do is as well as doing press ups do things that promote the growth of those muscles, so tricep, bicep and chest excercise! Not alot but it will help big time!!!

And sorry for asking a stupid question, i will take your word for it!
 
#19
Apologies all round from me!

My bold: I do hope you're referring to compound exercises, not isolations.

As for the personal trainer; I wouldn't fuss, just get Fartlek/HIIT running/cycling.

Oh and the best thing to train for press ups?...... Yep you guessed it.
