Last guy is right, the only other main thing to remember is they need to be proper press ups, i.e. body straight ARRSE down. press up will only count if your biceps are 90 degrees to the floor or chest a fists width from the ground, also feet not too far apart. Dont worry if you cant get them right first time I am sure the nice men in the white vests will give you plenty practice!!sig_rob said:What's a good number of continuous press-ups to aim for to bass the recuit select?
OK, I'll offer what I think is sound, common sense advice regarding press ups. Increasing by 1 each time cannot be beneficial forever. I mean, the body becomes fatigued and requires rest. If you are doing press ups several times a day I don't know what rest you will be getting, if any.sig_rob said:I'm pushing myself further eaach time i do pressups trying to increase number by 1 each time and i am doing them quite a few times a day so I figure thats a good start
ta for the heads up.stubearatkins said:Not long been back from ADSC. Physically you do heaves (pull ups), dynamic lift and static lift (Weights machines) and another machine that measures the strength you have in your back. You also do a jerry can walk (20kg each arm for 150m).
Quick tip - Be warned, in your PT session on day one you will be beasted no matter how hard you try. It might affect your run time.
