Alright chaps

Just wondering how many sit ups/push ups do you have to complete at the PRAC.

Thanks
I thought it was supposed to be 50 or 70 but most people could only do 30 or 40 (everyone failed anyway). To be honest, I get the feeling the ONLY thing they are really marking you on is your run time and steeplechase.

Go and find the feck out then, like every other silly bastard has had to do in life before the advent of the porn/information receptacle that is the internet. If you're not up to chufty, how the feck is knowing you're in the shite going to change that fact?

P.S you obviously didn't try hard enough, the information is out there. There is not a definitive "exact" either, just a rough minimum assuming you visibly put the effort in.

Grizzlypanda any reason why your giving him a large amount of shite for asking a question? yes he probably could find from other means but if you have to ask for military related advice is this not the best place?

Asking a question is clearly not the problem. Getting swathes of people coming on not only asking the same questions, but also showing such a bloody dire mentality, is the issue.

Problem solved.

The push-ups and sit-ups are part of the PFT so they do count. One lad on mine did sh*t on them both and was failed, though I think his run time was also out. Most people on mine smashed out a good number of each, I did 75 and 90. Just go until defeat.

I actually agree. My mental count was slightly lower due to some ones that were off form near the end.
