Has Anyone Met Sally?

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I go to a martial arts club and today one of the instructors had us do the Sally Press Up Challenge:

    Moby -Bring Sally Up - YouTube

    Start in a press up position with the arms bent (down)
    'Bring Sally Up' when instructed
    'Bring Sally Down' when instructed
    Don't move unless given one of the above two instructions (should always mean a pause in the down position)
    Press ups should be done 'marine style' with elbows locked in to the sides

    Simple as that. I managed to go until 2:49

    Harry did, but it's a long time ago.
  3. So, the same as a gym queen shouting "Lower! Raise! Lower! Hold it! Raise!"?

  4. crap vid, shite slave song
  5. What's with this 'marine style' pressups?

    Even us crabs have elbows tucked in to do pressups.

    Genuine question, does the army do it the same?
  6. Heh. "I'll have what she's having."
  7. Yeah CC, jumped onto this thread thinking the same thing. Total disappointment I'm afraid.
    But while I'm at it....met plenty of 'Sally's'. A firm placement of pillow over their faces was the only cure to prevent neighbours from reporting the sound of a murder in progress.
    Reminder to self- ease up on the pillow next time, it's a total pain in the arrse digging a hole in the backyard when one should be sleeping.
  8. Try using a shovel instead!
  9. On the other hand, it'd surely be a kindness to get in with the pillow before they do this kind of thing to themselves...


    What a ******* sight.

  10. My instructor (9th Dan) just teaches me how to break other peoples arms, shoulders, necks, wrists etc or, if all else fails. to throw them against a wall or the floor...


    What's with the press up shite?

  11. These days I'm more likely to Bring Up Huey.
  12. JESUS! The Joker lives!
  13. It's a Tae-Kwon Do club, so while you may be able to snap my neck with a severe glare i bet you can't kick half as prettily as me
  14. So what's the point of doing press ups? Particularly when you are paying for the class?

    I can do those at home.
