    Hi everyone this is my Introduction post,

    Ive got my prmc on 17th September and have been reading this page a lot for info on PT and prmc experiences, so thought it makes sense to be a member.

    Thanks

    Matt

    Cheers Flubberdog, I'm just in the final weeks of prep for PRMC, not sure whether to turn my training up to 11 to try for better numbers, or just maintain consistency with my current regime and avoid injury

    That question is above my pay grade as a parent to a RM YO , but I am sure someone will be on soon with some helpful advice!

    Assuming that you've already invested training hours over several months it makes sense to taper off training during the final week before PRMC so that you arrive fresh and without the niggles which are associated with constant training. Just my opinion though. Hopefully others will chip in with their own comments.

    Best of luck shippers,
    My son concentrated on maxing the press ups, sit ups and pull ups, keep up the CV by doing bleep tests.
    These are all given performance marks which are combined to give an overall grading of A, B or C on completion of the course.
    There is also the mini endurance course which will test your mental stamina under adversity.
    I’ll get more info off my son when he rings tonight and post it on here for you.
    Good luck bud.

    Thanks for the replies, that helps. Yes i have been doing serious training over the last few months since my pjft. My afco reccomended 3 runs a week, 2 swims, and 4 circuits of press ups sit ups and pull ups- advice which i have followed. So based on the above ill continue with this plus some shuttle run practice and in the lead up week taper off so I'm fresh for the week.

    One thing I would add is that on this forum there are a large number of PRMC diaries, which will give you a good idea of what you are going to have to do at CTC. It seems quite varied, so don't forget the knowledge and mental stuff as well as the physical! Good luck and let us know how you get along! ;)
