hello guys this isnt really nothing special but i was just wondering once you done say 35 press ups and yours arms are aching are you allowed to bend your back upwards and rest and then come back down and do more press ups? because your not actually coming out of the press ups position? :*text deleted*: and does anybody else do this?

*text deleted* mate, I think it depends on your on who your PTI is. I have heard that if you even stop for too long they pull you off but cant be sure as I havent done me PRMC yet.

No mate .... no arching your back (well not for more than a sec or 2) when doing press ups in gym test 1 while on prmc ... if the pti's catch you in the act they'll knock press ups off your score ... be warned mate! Even resting to long with no movement can result in you being withdrawn or points deducted .... no matter what just keep going but keep form!

Just keep going, just keep banging them out until you physically cannot lift off the ground, but remember your supposed to last 2 minutes, try getting to 60 in one go and then see how you feel, i can do 60 in just over a minute but then im f""cked the second minute so im trying to establish a happy medium.

dont mean to hijack the thread, but in reply to the above thread do they actually care how long you keep going or just how many you get out cause i max out 60 now but it doesnt take 2 mins?!
cheers

oh well i thought from what i was told, maximum points was for getting the maximum ammount ie.60 and that you had to aim to do 60 in less than 2 mins.. now im confused cause how can you make 60 (if thats your max) last 2 minutes and your saying even though youve done the max ammount because youve done them quicker than the time limit its not max points?
weird!

I reckon their thinking is that if you can last 2 minutes it requires more physical effort and determination than just blasting them out. For me, to do 40 pressups quickly requires much less effort than to do them slowly and take the full 2 minutes.

Your right mate, if you can do 60 in one minute thats maximum points you don't have to last the whole 2 mins.

ah brilliant, cheers for clearing that one up for me. I was trying to figure how i could make 60 which is my max press ups last 2 minutes, that would be a severe burnout doing reps that slow *text deleted*

Are you sure on this? Surely if you only needed to get 60 pressups to get max points in the 2 minutes, then the people who do more are getting no extra points except tyring themselves out more. You could just bang them out in a minute and have an extra minutes rest. I thought you had to go for the full 2 minutes or until the PTI says stop?

Granted if you were to reach 60 you don't just stop and get up *text deleted* you'd get bollocked, you aim to do as many as you can or till failure, They will mark down your total wether it be 60 70 80, they want to see determination. I can't last 2 mins doing press ups but i still got full marks for doing 60 in around 1.30mins, they get the scores afterwards when everyone's stood up.
The more you do they more they will give you credit and it may help towards other things like if your situps were way below average and give you the benifit of the doubt, thats why they just tell you to keep going on your pull ups as well, maximum is 6 but they don't stop you there if you can do more
