Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Sorry to repeat this topic. Im starting basic in two weeks my run time is sub 9.30. After reading a previous thread im a bit worried about my upper body strength. What do people think is an acceptable amount of sit ups/press ups in 2 minutes going into training for infantry?
     
  2. If you can do about 50 straight out of each with minimal gap between you'll be fine to start off
     
  3. 40 of each as a minimum. You'll need to do more to pass your annual assessment (MATTS). If you took the time to read through the Health and Fitness forum you will find that all the basics are well covered.
