i train everyday in the gym and jogging, love keeping fit, the Marines has always been on my mind! but just recently i discovered i can barely move thanks to my dead back! :worried: think i pulled it during deadlifting, my right lat, is there anyone else out there with the same problems?

ALSO is there anyone else on this site joining the RMR?

I originally applied to the army about a year ago, got called a 'posh-boy' haha and they never got back to me after i left my details. I then came across the Marines and felt right at home(their not too fond of the army either).

Psycometrics test is a piece of cake, its just the timing that catches you out.

im guessin psycometric test is just another name for 'aptitude' test- english, mathematics, mechanical comprehension, spatial reasoning and things like that? also the dreaded memory test! is that what it is?

good luck on your medical *text deleted*! *text deleted* im not exactly lookin forward to some bloke molestering my balls! (he could at least buy me a drink first! *text deleted*) never normally get em out on first date! *text deleted* :laugh:

Hiya, welcome to the forum.

Never pulled a lat thankfully although i would imagine it would take you out of action, best rest it up.

Yeah the psychometric test is basically an aptitude test, there are alot of threads with information on here just type it in the search function, no memory section in it though.

best of luck with your back and application
