  11. Hello mate, reference your medical it will be more of the same of what you had at ADSC but with a few injections and a blood test thrown in.

    I really wouldn't loose any sleep over it unless you inject yourself with heroin the day before you go to ITC.

    I'd imagine they'd pick anything up in the blood tests.

    Reference pressups and situps thats part of your PFT (or personal fitness test) you will do this in the first week and it will consist of a mile and a half run like you did at ADSC, and you will do as many pressups and situps as you can in 2 minutes.

    You may do things like a static lift and jerry can walk in your first week or that may come around week 6 or 12 I can't quite remember.
     
  14. but what im saying is if i do say 30 press ups in 2 mins will they defer me or is it just to asses ur fitness for your fitness plan?
     
  15. They want to see potential to improve, so don't biff it and stick bags of effort into all the tests. If they see that then they'll give you a colour code i.e

    Green - Good to go with phys

    Amber - Needs Improvment but can continue with training

    Red - Remedial PT/possible posting to a platoon that gets your phys up to scratch before starting training

    At the end of 26 weeks you'll be good enough at press-ups to complete the required amount.
