I see in alot of you guys signatures that yourr best efforts are in there.

I just thought I'd give myself a quick 1minute test on how many situps I could do. I managed 30, I feel like I must be doing something wrong because I am in the worst shape of my life and that doesn't seem too bad.


What I did was put my feet under my bed , my hands to the side of my head, well I guess i did normal situps, but is there a special marine way of doing them ?

thanks

Head touch your knees?? and urs knees touching together (No Gap).... Thats the proper sit up.. Everything else seems right!.. I Can do 87 In two minutes.. Practice makes perfect mate!.. Still struggling on the press ups tho!..

your head doesnt need to touch your knees ,the bottoms of your elbows have to touch the tops of your knees or to the side of the top as some people find it more comfortable that way an your hands have to stay on your temples at all times. hope that helps mate.

go onto the royal marines site mate and register and use the training tool and on it there are videos of how to do each exercise correctly.

i find a lot of folk are unsure on the correct technique of exercises, easiest way to find out i think is just type in youtube " royal marines training" quite a few demonstrations there and some vids durin rt, ok for a look, also if you type in blue peter prmc, guy from blue peter did the prmc a while back an its also good jus to see what its like down there, although the reality is they toned down a bit for the cameras, dont think the nlue peter target audience could take the reality,haha
