Any less than 120 and you have issues and should probably sack it and join the Navy.

its 44 just like the rest of the army

i would worry about p company rather then the press ups.

and 85+ press ups is a decent score on a pft, for a fully trained soldier.

dont worry about it, my nan knocks out 44 press ups before she goes to the hospital..

Wah filter on.

It's east to find with google. The minimum standard is 60 in 2 mins. Not exactly taxing for someone who is fit enough to think they can pass pcoy.

kyale.b, re-arrange these words - whale, as, thick, omelette, a, to form a popular phrase :wink:

ok, listen in.

the pft is the only test that dictates a certain number of press ups.

whatever extra standards the DS want to impose is down to them.

there may be a good standard you need to achieve, but at the end of the day, you are civvys, not soldiers yet, so will be trained to an appropriate level.

when you tip up, as long as you can pass a pft you will be fine. i guarentee you will do enough press ups in your time in training.

there is no special category on the pft for paras!

commonly found just lying on the sea bed floor covered in HP sauce.

For the Paras it depends, 25 normal press-ups, or you can put your knees on the floor and do 50. Up to you really.
