right i've done about a billion searches on the net for the answers to these questions but they just don't see to be answered.... excuse me if u think there silly questions but i don't live in england and haven't done any of your AFT's.... Just the Irish Army's one anyway here goes... Right goin to the UK in the new year to apply for the booties and have been gettin my fitness up over the last 3 weeks although snow has put a dampner on my training so im sorta stuck at home for the time being and i suppose i'm askin these questions now cause i had a chance to think about stuff right now im doin 1.5 miles on a flat road in (Best Time) 8:36 after a half an hour warm up; can get through about 60-65 press ups in 2 mins and lookin in round the 70-80 mark on me press ups how'n'ever these are all usin the irish armys way of carryin out such tests.... so questions.... 1) whats the story with the run im aware that its on a treadmill incline of 2 degrees and that u do a 12:30 second 1.5 mile before a minute rest and a 1.5 mile best time in under 10:30.... Question here is how do they set the treadmill up like do u just put in a speed u can run at or do ya tell them what time u think u can hack it in or can ya tweek with the speed as ya go? 2) right with the press ups i get about 30 out straight away in 30 seconds say but then i adopt the rest position that the irish army uses i.e. arse in the air making a sorta upside down V with your body for a 10 second breather then get back into press ups and repeat until fatigue or time up.... Questions just wonderin if the british army has a similar rest position like arse in the air... or knees to mat etc? 3) similar to question 2 cept this time bout the sit ups... we do half sits over here for the test but i find the full sit up easier to do anyway eh ye rest position??? head to mat or none? Any help on these will be much appreciated and sorry if u lads arent familiar with the RN way of testin but i don't really like the Rumration webby.... Arsse is much prettier and one more thing... anyone know how important the pull ups are? i can only pull out max of 8 or 9 max proper ones (like no swinging and full extensions) and i haven't been able to get past that point (probably cause im a fat bastad on the inside) how many would they be looking for u to do?
