    It's safe to assume that a RM who has just passed out is in absolute peak physical fitness.

    Given that when they join thier respective units they won't be spending all day every day doing phys and getting punished with extra phys for small indiscretions., how is optimum fitness maintained?

    Are there mandatory daily gym sessions and runs?

    I think once they pass out they are physically knackered I also believe the phys continues!

    App Stage:
    They definitely do a lot of phys as part of their day-to-day. But as they're not necessarily trying to build you towards anything, such as the Commando tests, I don't think it's as intensive. I would imagine there's a degree of expectation that you keep yourself in some kind of form!

    I was speaking to a ML officer recently and he said there is daily 'troop phys' sessions in the morning. Which usually includes a run or a circuit ect. And then most lads will do their own fitness in the evening, but he said the troop sessions are generally quite relaxed

    The intensity of the phys sessions when you get to your unit will to a large degree depend on who's taking them,obviously if the guy is a pti then the sessions will be just as tough as at CTC.
