Saw on youtube some training where they have to carry another marine Fireman style 200m, now was just thinking would they make you carry a 14 stone guy if you are about 10 stone, or would it be evened out.
If someone was carrying myself it would be easy, as im small, but if i had to carry a 6'3" guy weighing 3-4 stone over my weight thats going to be bloody hard. But then i've never actually tried it so i dont know how much i could carry.

Dont think it matters mate, because look at it like this:

Coporal whos training you could be fighting along side you soon, and if he thinks well if he can only carry a 10 stone man and im 14 stone and i get injured, what am i going to do. i dont think it matters mate although i could be wrong.

Nah they do try to match you to someone of a similar height, but you never get an exact match. Besides it doesnt matter its still absolutely nails! :wacko:

what is that hard part? i would have thought that getting the person up there in the first place is the head part! once you got them up there, lock your legs and run like *text deleted**text deleted*. *text deleted*!

It's one of the things I'm most worried about as I'm quite lanky. It would be abit crap if I had to carry someone who's 16 stone.

I did recently carry some girls around recently..dunno why, all drunk, that wasnt easy, but this was just piggy back, one i carried about a mile, the other about 20 metres *text deleted*. I carried one of my friends when i used to weigh about 9 stone and hes 6'3" but hes really skinny.
Trying to strengthen up my legs at the moment, i should drag one of my friends down to the nearest common who weighs a couple stone more than me and see how i deal with that. Not quite the same as carrying a girl around piggyback who has some nice legs and a hot ass *text deleted*, if i carried my freinds piggyback id just have some hairy pegs and a package digging in my back :wacko:

well im not sure if its a 'proper technique' but i jus tend to do a type of rugby tackle, putting my shoulder into there lower abdomen, wrapping my hands around them and pushing forwards. i think sometimes people try and actually LIFT the person onto there shoulder nd i duno bout them but that hurts wen i try it. i find walking forwards and pushing forwards nd up helps.

i have no idea if thats *text deleted* make sense at all, or if its right, its just how i do them nd i dont have any trouble?
