Hello all. MB coming up soon - I just thought I'd tap into the collective wisdom with a quick question re. the press-up test. Is the press-up test done to a called count, (up, pause, down, pause, up, etc ad infinitum) or is it fairly free? If it is done to a count then I might be in a spot of bother - while I can blast through 44 with decent form without too much trouble, doing them to a count takes a lot more out of you! How strict are the DS so far as form goes anyway? Is it a case of them wanting to see chests on the floor on the down and full extension of the arms on the up, or are they just looking for a respectable attempt at the exercise? I realise that they are going to have you repeat a blatantly half-hearted attempt, but are you going to find yourself in a situation where you end up doing a lot more then 44 press-ups total owing to perhaps relatively minor imperfections in form? Slightly schoolboy questions I know, but the subject was fairly quickly dealt with at the Briefing: DS: "Do you all know how to do press-ups?" Briefing Group: "Yes!" DS : "Right, you have to do 44 of them in 2 minutes" [Exit left] Only a few months afterwards do the questions I should have asked come to me... Thanks.
