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. is there a certain weight range you have to be before joing the army ?
  2. The army currently use the body mass index (BMI) this compares your height and weight and gives you a score with 20-30 being normal. However if you excede this then they will measure your body fat and make a decision based on that.
  3. Yep, don't worry if you have a high muscle percentage meaning you weigh more as you will still be let in, just make sure you are not lardy.
  4. i was a skinny 9 stoner when i joined in 76..
