    Make sure your 100% mate as you’ll probably already know you’re signing up from day 1 this time. And don’t expect it to be any easier because you’ve got a little experience it’s a 24/7 hangout. On the other side the new weekend policy is good for lads with families as we get thinned out last...

    RT Kit

    Yep issued underwear. Fair play it’s your own choice, I can’t take one down as I will be flying down but if I wasn’t it’d be the first thing on my list. You just leave your stuff you need for training in your grots over the holidays, you only take civvi gear home. If you’re worried about...

Not sure if you mean you’ll be able to buy ironing boards to share between your section, but everyone should have their own and you...

    PRMC am I ready

    5 mile was the most I went and it wasn’t often. I focused on 400m/800m intervals. I done Kenyan hills(give them a google) and a lot of weighted circuits always including front squats. Felt really strong on day 3 thanks to the circuits.

    PRMC am I ready

    The gym tests are the easy part. Your BFT time shows you’ll probably struggle with bottomfield and endurance. I ran 8.50 and started to lag at the end of endurance. Just another perspective.

    Kit List for joining recruit training

    If he can’t carry a decent Ironing board with him then a cover will help drastically as the naffi boards are horrendous and as you’d expect expensive.
