I enjoyed reading these and they give me a lot of heads up so I thought id do one. I apologise for such a long thread! Tuesday- so I set off on my journey from Darlington early and arrived in Lympstone at around 4pm. We were met by the corporal and were escorted to our PRMC accomadation. A lot of lads had arrived earlier and were busy just doing admin and polishing boots. When we arrived we were told to draw our kit, a pair of boots, water bottle and mug, fill a couple of forms out, weight and height. We were allocated a bib number which was waiting on our bed. The rest of the evening was pretty chilled out, but make sure you do everything at 100mph and when told to do something, no if's or but's just do it! We had an earlyish night but not many of us slept well the first night! Wednesday- up at 5am, shower, shave, clean rooms and accom, into suits and into breakfast for 6am, make sure you eat enough lads, you will need the calories for what's to come during the week! Maybe an hour and a half later was when we met the PTI's and were into the gym tests. First up was the bleep test where I believe we may have lost one, next was pressups, followed by sit-ups and pull ups! Gym is very strict lads! Keep still at attention when not exercising, DO NOT scratch or wipe sweat off, seriously fight the urge and do everything as fast as you can when told! We got a few besstings becuase of scratching, but also because some lads didn't do the number of Burpees we were told to do as a punishment! After this back for shower, suits, scran then the 3 mile run. One of the biggest tips lads, make sure your water bottles Are full literally brimmed! We got told to open them up and everyone's water bottles who weren't to the top got a beating outside (which they did not need before BFT). We jogged as a squad to the start, did a warm up then the first run out was quicker than 12.30 I've no idea how much faster but be prepared for that lads, quick wee and water stop then a best effort run! We lost I think maybe 6-7 people on the BFT which is a shame! I can't remember if we had scran before or after the swim, but it was pretty simple, jump off a diving board, swim a length, a width, another length and pick up a brick from the bottom, (MAKE SURE YOU CLIMB OUT OF THE SIDE, NOT THE STEPS). This was the night we had a chat to two diamonds which was handy, the rest of the evening was relaxed! Thursday Up at 5, shower suits scran (FILL YOURSELF UP, AND MORE) We started off doing the confidence test which was the high obstacles, pulling yourself across a rope I think it was about 30ft, jog/sprint along a plank then pull yourself across another rope. Then onto the assault course demos, you all get a practise at this so don't worry, make sure you listen to detail though as we got more beastings for people not listening, then onto your timed assault course. Straight after this we did the dreaded determination test(try be at the front lads as some of the time you get a rest.) I can't remember how long it was going on for but it did seem a while, duck walks to the end of the field, same with leopard crawls, crab walks, sprints, pays to be a winner, hanging over monkey bars and pull ups. Going down as a team under water was personally my most challenging bit as I had to get someone to push my head down near enough (make sure you come back up together!) Firemans carries, baby carries, drags etc. After a while the bottom field was over, we had a hotbox meal and changed into our other combats, then straight up to the endurance course, by this time we were drained, knees and elbows were awful, but just hang in there it Will end! We did a warm up, then out we went, we did peters pool where yet again go underwater as a team and back up. We did more pays to be a winner, sprints, drags, carries etc, try stick to the front lads becuase it will pay off! We did the sheep dip which wasn't as actually bad as id thought it would be, we had a rest and got a banana then back out again, tunnels, rivers, bogs, leopard crawls etc and even sprints through the rivers. We Had another quick juice stop then off we went again, same thing again, then finally the endurance course ended. We got changed into dry kit then back to CTC. Remember lads, just becuase you've got through the day, don't let your attitude let you down. We got given a PT booklet then the evening was relaxed. Friday- up at 5/5.30, shower suits scran. We ran on pressure plates to test our footing, had a medical brief just to sign a couple of forms, got issued our boots and de serviced all kit. Finally we Had our closing lecture and got our certificates given to us. We were away for around 10.30am. Tips Do not scratch, wipe sweat off and do not fidget or you will get a punishment! Waterbottles filled to the top at all times! Stick to the front and do not lag behind! Expect the unexpected to come and train a lot harder than asked of Get enough calories into you as you'll need it TRAIN HILL SPRINTS!! My fitness plan I followed was Arny's plan which really played a huge part in my overall performance and I'd reccomend it to anyone. Overall, everyone was great lads and we worked quite well as a team and helped each other out and PRMC was an amazing experience!
