Hi, just thought id mention that I went to a training session last night and did my first bleep test for 9 years and got to level 9.6. I am quite pleased with this as in the morning I did a 20 min row and a 45 min bike ride. One thing that bothered me was my technique tho, i could not for the life of me turn properly! I did this camp little skip at each of the 20 mtr lines and by the end of the sesh everyone was in stitches! do you get told off for not turning right at prmc or do you just have to get to each line within the time?

not done the PRMC yet, but there are a couple of diaries on here that mention problems with turningthat you might want to have a look see, dont think it's something you'd get nailed for though i'd avoid camp little skips....*text deleted*

no, you have to get the turn right and in time. The bleep won't wait for you after you've reached the line, and as you get to the higher levels you'll have to have a good technique to keep you from lagging behind. one thing you need is trainers with good grip. Oh and good balance as well; being able to turn around swiftly and efficiently will definitely help. If you get really good and fast at the turning, over time you will cut down on a few seconds, it's this that might decide wether or not you pass.

yea good power in your legs to turn and lauch again...also alternate legs left and right so you dont just keep turning on one leg and wearing it out.

*text deleted* the best way is to stop before the line and at the same time as turning place your foot behind the line and then just blast off again no need for doing a little dance *text deleted*.

Is the RM bleep test 20 or 25m? Ive never known for sure, people have told me different. Not a big problem not knowing, but good to know anyway.

its 20meters.
i was told that a good thing to do befor prmc is to test yourself over 25 meters with a tape designed for you to do 20 meters, and it will then be easier. not a great deal though.
