  1. Hi all, new to the forum, basically im hoping to start training in ATC Harrogate for the technical course, i am yet to go to adsc on the 13th June,
    I passed pre selection but because i am a junior and because of my build i found the upper body strength tougher than others, My best Run time is 10:26, im fine at icebreaker and teamtasks etc, Jerry can carry i find okay, situps about 50 before i start to ache, but i can only do about 15 Pressups and 2 Heaves; embarrassing i know, also the baglift only pre selection i found hard because im short so nore for me to lift above my head, i only lifted 25k and couldnt do the 30, although now i probably could, is there any really good routines or anything to help me improve on my upper body before adsc? Cheers, i just dont want to fail:(
    Seeing as theres only 3 Spaces left for the job i wanna do : RE Building and Structual Finisher, i want to get the highest grade i can so i can get one of those spaces

    Additional facts:
    Exercise 5 days a week:
    Monday: 1.5m run, 15 minutes on crostrainer, 2000m rowing, weights at gym
    Tuesday: short jog, Intervals, 15minutes crosstrainer, 2000m rowing, weights
