UKSF (R) Training Guide

Discussion in 'Army Reserve' started by khetanbateman, Jan 11, 2013.

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. All,


    I have heard there is an official UKSF(R) Training Guide but am not sure where to find it. Could anyone PM me the guide or the program contained within? I have contacted the unit directly but they couldn't give me any specific preparation information at this stage of the process.


    I own Fighting Fit by Adrian Weale and am just looking for the offical guide.


    Thanks
     
  2. Thanks.

    Unfortunately for the next 6 months or so my job makes it impossible to commit to joining the TA, so I was hoping to use this time to get as fit as possible before I can feasibly get the ball rolling.
     
  3. Fighting fit seems perfectly sensible theres no magic involved SASr is a serious committment reading the quiet soldier will give you an idea of the pressure your going to put yourself under.

    The Adrian Weale book should be sufficient
     
  5. Drop in to your local SF Reserve unit if you have not already done so, they should be able to sort you out.
     
  6. Hijacking/digging up an old thread.

    The endurance swim for selection, what does it consist of? Other than swimming, that's a no brainer.
     
  7. A foam sharks fin & Bridlington beach...

  8. Just like the one at Lympstone then. I'm assuming for greater distance.
     
  9. Swim to the Boathouse and repaint

  10. Brid beach in the summer makes Baghdad look like a walk in the park once the good folk of Hull come up for a Sunday stroll.

  11. It's more of a rowing club. Also half of it is brick/glass so that'll spoil the view.
     
  12. Hull. That's vomit worthy.

  13. If you haven't been informed or don't know, then you really aren't far enough up the chain to have to worry about it TBH.
     
  14. I'm sure he's found out about it in the last 5 years or so.
