Mate best thing to do is try testing yourself like this -

3miler (do 1.5 in the 12.5mins allowed for the 1st bit then run the 2nd 1.5 best effort)
Pull Up's - 2mins
Sit Up's - 2mins
Pull Up's - Max

Do them all one after eachother ..... this will kinda recreate gym test 1. You probably know all this anyways mate but jus thought i'd post it. At least you'll have a rough idea what you can do.

No worries mate, glad to help :D i'm sure you'll return the favour and clue us all in when your back from prmc :D

I'd say if you made that kinda programme your main focus you'll get the progress your looking for in the next 3wks

I think i might see if the 30/10/07 course has places left and move to that if possible. I think those couple of extra weeks really might make the difference between passing the PRMC and failing it :?

I agree with you there, i dont think comparin myself to other people will help me at all, but just those couple of extra weeks could make so much of a difference. I think il test myself tomorrow and then see what im capable of

Im on the 30th one to0 and Im a bit worried about my scores and I was thinking about putting my date back but ive got about 5 weeks left and thats enough time to get fit for it.
I think alot of peoples scores on this web site are really good mainly *text deleted* alot of people on this are REALLY interested in the marines thats why their on this web site all the time *text deleted*. I think if you keep training in 3 weeks time you should be ok. And dont let other peoples good scores put you off after all i dont think thats the objective off this forum.
Maybe someone whose done the prmc will know better....?

i done one four years ago, but never took any further, (wasnt ready for commitment, and the thought of them bastards made me want to *text deleted* myself). hoping for a date for my next in about six weeks though. (the thought of them bastards still makes me a little uneasy, but im glad to say, i can now control my bowel movements :wink: )

all i can say is, *text deleted* what everyone else does on the day phys wise. its a single effort mostly. do your best and then that little bit more.

i suppose you could improve your scores a little bit if you got three weeks left, but, depending on what they are now, you could go and burn yourself out and go there tired. definitely do not want that. you should rest for three/four days before you go, so really you may only have two and a half weeks. hows the scores looking at the min mate.
