    This is a particularly good video detailing the standards, technique and attitude required to pass.

    One thing that particularly made me chuckle was the mahoosive PTI in the final techniques section of the video conducting pull-ups that nearly got his belly-button up to the beam - watch and weep, watch and weep:)

    Great video.

    I feared for that beam when he got to the top - it's probably still shaking now.

    I met that PTI at the Marines Vs Paras game at Taunton last year and he was somewhat of a celebrity amongst some of the lads :D

    He secured a few phone numbers as well :D:D:D

    One thing I've always wondered when I see the PRMC videos: why are the lads shirtless when doing press ups but not when doing pull ups or sit ups?

    I guess because if someone had a baggy T-shirt, the person counting the reps could count a poor rep. (Not lower enough)

    Hadn't though of that, I though it was just that t shirts were restrictive but that makes more sense.

    Correct. The other person lies his fist out, facing away, and counts how many times your chest hits his fist (not the numbers on the tape). The shirt and bib would interfere.
