Press-ups ... used to "motivate" people

#1
Is this a thing of the past?

Can someone tell me the situation if a PTI / non-PTI can issue press-ups if he/she feels the person/persons aren't "sparking"

I'm not talking beasting people, just noticed it had started to happen again more recently and wondered what the official line was?

Cheers

P.S. if this has been covered I'll drop and give you 20...

Part of the point of Agai 67 was to make punishments relevant to the crime and give a chance of redress to the perp. Dishing out the "get massives" will work for some people and make some people reach for the nearest lawyer.

I’ve always been told you need to be a PTI to award more than 5 push-ups.
This is what I've heard... but it's nice to know the official line?

In an ideal world, we wouldn't need to do that kind of thing, but people do need to know that pain related learning is the only way sometimes :)

P.S. I can only imagine what the boss will think of this thread lol

Easy - always keep a PTI present. Failing that, non-PTI DS make note of any feck ups, and pass the note onto the PTI. On the next PT session, the group are split into teams. Feck ups vs non feck ups, and away goes the PTI.

Those who did not feck up get a good quality PT session. Those who didn't - have fun!

ARTD general guidelines on Remedial training (Tier 1) wake up exercises for inappropriate behaviour/attitude are rather detailed but in outline, can be given by any instructor/nco (non PT staff) and includes:
"Press Ups - max of 30 in groups of 10 within a 45 min period"
But these need to be officially recorded in a Remedial Training Register. However this is depebdent upon what the training establishment/unit CO has specified in his directive.

Classed as "minor sanctions" IIRC?

Only much good as a punishment if 10 press ups every 15 minutes is classed as a hardship.

We always were issued with press ups at sandhurst during the first five weeks for crap turnout etc. But we always had to then log them in a folder on the table, outside the Csjt's office. Then after week five it was show parades.

I thought "get down and give me XX" has been replaced with "see that tree rigghhtt over there?"
Nope, you need a PTI to take you for walkies too.
Only if it is walkies. If you happen to be doing, say, taking and breaking cover or bayonet drills then any suitably trained JNCO can take that lesson.

Break out the whistle of woe :D

i think its a good method cos if you get 80 press-ups you wont do it again..if you cant hack it get out
You could always instruct better so that you wouldn't need to dish out press-ups in the first place!

I gather that a quick reminder of the "dash, down, crawl" variety has its uses.

This reminds me of a pti telling a nco that he could not make someone run round the square carrying a gpmg by the carrying handle as it was unbalancing and it risked causing an injury .
"Can I make him run round with two ?"
"Yeah thats fine "
"I really really really hate ptis" :oops: :D
