Afternoon All, I just stumbled across this Web site whilst doing a bit of research on-line into the Infantry. Top site, lots of useful information and advice exactly what I am after. Basically, I am 23 years old (24 in August) and have decided I want to enlist. I did have reservations but the general consensus seems to be that age will not be a problem. I am looking at the possibility of joining the Parachute Regiment, and heres where I am looking for help. I am what I would describe as generally fit, but not fit enough. So, my questions are: * How long would it take to attain enough fitness to start CIC (Para)? * What sort of exercises should I be doing? I am currently running, swimming, circuits and bodyweight exercises. Should I join a gym? * Is the ADSC time 09:18 or 09:40? I apologise if this has been covered before but I could not see anything with the Search function. Cheers.
