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. After all my stressing about my BMI, I have just passed my Medical for the TA Int Corps. I have just got the joining instructions for the final selection weekend and it says on them that if your fitness is not up to par they will send you home early on the Saturday. I am training at least 4 times a week with a Personal Trainer but am stressing now that it still won't be enough... does anyone know how strict they are on this weekend? I can do my run so am not too worried about that, slightly concerned about the 6ft wall (not like there is any I can practice on)... just would like to know if anyone has been on this weekend and what it's like really?!

    Cheers! :)
  2. Don't worry - just do it!
  3. the 6ft wall is nothing. Give it 100% and you'll be fine.
  4. Don't worry, a few Army fried breakfasts will soon increase your BMI to the level required by the TA.
  5. Don't be gay, it's easy. There is a technique, which I'm sure they'll show you first.
  6. Hve you done the weekend yet? If so, how did it go?
  7. Nah, is in a few weeks time thank goodness... means I have a few more weeks with my sadist of a personal trainer to work his magic! ;)

    Will let you know how I get on. :D
