TA fitness levels wiki page

#1
Many thanks to StabTiffy2B for getting this page on fitness levels/advice for potential recuits under way.

Please can I ask you all to have a look at this page and modify it accordingly.

A special request goes out to unit PTIs to add the fitness requirements for female recruits.

If anyone is having dramas creating a wiki account (to edit the page), please drop myself or Abacus a PM.

If anyone else has any ideas for additional wiki pages, crack on (or PM me if you need advice on creating a new one)- there does seem to be a number of questions which get asked on a regular basis in the forum and rather than go round and round, the plan would be for people to be pointed to the relevant wiki page.

Cheers,
msr

Sorry to criticise already but its wrong the requirements for a green for a male are 44 press ups in two minutes and 50 sit ups, 22 press ups (IIRC) for women and 50 sit ups.

WNB,

Don't whinge, create a wiki account and put it right, That's the point of the wiki - it gets refined by each user until it is perfect...

Done but formatting could be improved if anyone's got a minute.

Edit: Added times for the old knackers too :D

Right, I've tidied it up a bit and done some fairly minor tweaking. Should look a bit better now ;)

Times and requirments correct to the best of my knowledge.

P.S. If you can't work out how to edit a wiki page then you will face difficulties recruiting the yoof of today...
The "yoof of today" as you so eloquently put it are not all IT literate in fact often the opposite, however in my case i was too busy having a quick one of the wrist whilst watching "Dutch sex dwarves go wild Vol:3" to create an arrsepedia account.

Abacus PMSL :D at least you old crusties have got a sense of humour!! Im trying to find the equivalent level for the womens bleep test.

GEEK MODE ON: both the 1.5 mile run and the Bleep test (multi stage fitness test) are VO2 max tests 13mins = VO2 max of 38.6 now all i have to do is find the tables for the bleep test and 38.6 would work out as level x.x. put this info down as aproximate and et voilla
GEEK MODE OFF
