Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

  2. My youngest is going for it and will beat the pants off you and everybody else. Why? because of commitment.

    Didn't you get the wall chart, ' Get fit for the Army' ?
     
  3. You'll be running at least once a day, sometimes twice a day.

    Enjoy.

    Well as lovely as that is for you, i'm sure that your very proud but HTF does that answer my question???

    REALLY IF SOMEONE HAS NOTHING CONSTRUCTIVE TO SAY SURE THEY SHOULD STAY QUIET, I AM REMINDED OF AN OLD SAYING, SOMETHING TO DO WITH AN EMPTY BOTTLE SMASHING??
     
  7. Be sure and tell your training NCO that the first time he spouts inane drivel at you

    I am sure you will get along just fine :wink:
     
  8. Get of arrse right now and start running. If you have time to talk here and do nothing you will fail.

    Never be jealous about the achievements of others - just beat them.

    The army is not about weight training, the real requirement is to move at a steady, appropriate pace over every terrain.

    The fitness requirement always has been cardio-vascular. It is no use being able to lift a car if you can't run 5 miles.

    Lifting heavy weights occurs in some jobs, long distance stamina occurs in every job at some point.

    Get running but don't do too much and injure yourself.

  13. Whas the need to get personal, I am very sensitive about my Mongness!!
    52 years old and full of anger, chill out, i posted a question asking how much PT there will be during phase one and you somehow took that as a personal assualt?
     
  14. It’s the new modern army, he will welcome your input

    If not, tell him I told you it was OK :wink:
     
  15. Will do Caarps, i was hoping that the army had recently undergone an evolutions become a democracy. maybe the NCO's and myself can debate about all the PT and come to a hapy medium, meet half way if you like lol.

    cheers mate
