    Back into the swing of things

    RMR London This year

    Been told I've just missed out on the intake for RMR London this year as they are full. Had VPJFT+ booked in for the coming week. Gutted but another year to train and smash the phys, no excuse for when next year rolls around. Does anybody know when holding troop would start up, under normal...

    Phys during RMR training

    Hey all, I would check in with your det and CA. I've been told I could be loaded on an ROP in August if I can get f2f medical cleared up by 24th July. I have VPJFT+ next week. Worth a follow up!

    Footwear for VPJFT+

    There will plenty of more experienced people better placed than I to help you on here but for me, I'm trying to keep it specific. My particular area of struggle is my triceps burning coming off the press ups into the plank, so I'll do a VPJFT and finish by doing as many sets of 20 push ups into...

    Footwear for VPJFT+

    Couple of VPJFT questions if anyone is able to help! Is there a requirement for footwear? I'm doing it from home so wouldn't mind doing it in bare feet! Is there a waiting list after you inform AFCO that you're ready? Thanks in advance.

    Introduction - RMR at 30+

    It went fairly smoothly. Few things to keep in mind - Know your CV/your story, when significant events in your life happened i.e. finished school/uni, job changes etc. Be specific - your age at the time and the month/year. Might sound basic but I found in that situation, when asked about events...
