Hey this is my first post. I noticed that on www.armyjobs.co.uk they changed the format and in the process took down the tests that I would be put through at selection(the run, jerry can walk, back lifts etc.) I was wondering if there might be another site that has this same information posted.

If not I just have a few questions. How much do the jerry cans weigh? Also what is the difference between a Static and Dynamic Back lift and what is a decent amount that I should be able to do for each?

Thanks in advance. I plan on going for selection near the end of the year but I'm coming from Canada so I just want to be prepared in everyway possible(so any other pointers I'll take gladly :D )


Jerry cans weigh 20kg each, static lift is from the floor and dynamic back is testing your back/shoulder strength to see if you will be able to carry heavy loads.
Does anyone know of any links to pictures/diagrams/good descriptions of the Selection tests?

Been trying to find them but have had no luck - I take it that the static lift is the ammo box from ground to shoulder height?
no just wait and see......just keep running 2 mile a day 4 days a week...and keep doing sit up's and push ups and chin up's

if your doing them alot then you got nothing to worry about trust me
