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:

    I've had a quick search both on here and the wider internet, but I can't seem to find a definite answer on the way fitness are assessed for the RSD; there seems to be two conflicting sets of information. I understand there is the run and jerry can carry, but what else?

    Is it the standard push ups, sit ups and heaves?
    Or simply the 40kg bag lift?

    Sorry for the bother, cheers.
  2. OK, i have in front of me the TA and FTRS Physical Training Policy dated 29 Jul 11, i understand a new version has recently been published but i have yet to receive it. The policy states that for the recruit selection weekend the following assessments should be carried out;

    Risk reduction run (1.5 miles in PT kit in under 14 mins)

    The next weekend PSS (TA), i dont know what PSS stands for, but this includes the following assessments;

    1.5 miles in PT kit - 10.30 for Para, 12.45 for inf, 13.15 for RA / RAC / etc and 14.00 for other arms and services
    Power Bag Lift (capped at 40 kg)
    RMT (jerry can carry) - capped at 150m

    Like i said there is an amendment due out and will repost when i receive it. In the meantime, hope that helps.
