jus dont overdo it, supposedly something like 8 or 9 at one time and you can have a potassium overdose lol
anyways thats how im training, mostly situps, press ups, pull ups now, as my upper body strength is lacking but even 30 a night does the job atm. easy things you can do by just lying on the floor, dont need to fork out for a gym membership

good luck

By the time B Company/Londons sort out your admin fella - you'll wish you hadn't have bothered waiting those extra couple of weeks.

I suggest get down there next week and get the ball rolling... you're gonna wait a month or so (if not more) for everything to be squared away including your recruit selection weekend.

There's also quite a backlog now to start recruit training (or at least that's the score with lads fom our unit)... so the sooner you get the ball rolling, the better it will be for you.

craigd has a great point there. it took me from start of february till 5 weeks ago to get my RSW or ADSC so that was like 4 months :(

Apply asap and keep training. Also keep at the staff regarding your application

You'll miss next years tour with the LONDONS - the size has been halfed already and I doubt you'll be trained and ready to deploy.

There is also another in 2011 at ISAF HQ, plus a rumoured composite company in 2012.
