    Cheers bro, closest I have got is last set I got 25/30 sit-ups, hoping after a good few days rest I can grind those last reps. Ps how strict do you have to be on the plank, is any movement considered a fail?

    The instructor I did it with told me it’s a 3 strikes rule. So if you get picked up 3 times you will get told to stand up and it’s a fail

    Ahh it’s just those last planks I’m shaking like a *text deleted* dog and I’ve recorded myself doing the circuit and my backside sometimes goes up so. Only 15 mins of work at the end of the day Cheers

    Passed mine yesterday however not been told of any dates yet, hoping to get on this intake though, but yeah it’s a 3 strike rule, just dig in and whatever you do, don’t break form and you should be good. I really struggled on my last set of sit-ups but I think it was more down to nerves and using more energy than what I’ve been used to in order to keep a really rigid form.

    Cheers mate, how many days rest did you take prior to the test, as I said mines is this Wednesday (5 days from now) I’m planning to do another mock one either tomorrow or Sunday. Just foam rolling and stretching to make sure Muscles are as fresh as possible

    I took two days off, did a fair bit of stretching the day before and I warmed up really well at least half an hour before the test. You’ll still be required to follow the vPJFT+ warm up prior to the test but I wanted to be extra safe. Good luck with yours mate, smash it!

    Cheers mate Yeah I was planning on doing my own warm up about 20 mins before it I’ve done the warm up video and I feel just doing that alone is not enough. Cheers though mate and I’ll get back to you soon after I’ve undertaken it !

    I would be prepared to do 4 sets , so watch out on those sit ups mate, even if you've got nothing in you, when they ask you to do another set, dig deep and say yes.

    Only being able to do 25-30 sit-ups is particularly poor. I would advise you travel to CTCRM, only when you can do more.

    Lads do they make you do the warm up on the video call or do you do it yourself in your own time before you actually go 'live'? Cheers
