I have been scanning the forum whilst my application has been going through and following the lovely pin-up training programme the army gave me to train myself up for selection/basic. I know that in order to pass i have to beable to run the 1.5 in 9:18 at least but i havnt been able to find any figures on what u need to do upper body wise... Just wondering if any one knew the exact number of chin ups, press ups or sit ups needed??? Also a mate of mine recently passed everyting but failed on the lower back strength because he wouldnt beable to carry the backpack without causing damage. Is the minimum known for this also. Any feedback would be great.
