    Just out of interest, where it says third and final attempt, does this mean he'll have to wait X amount of months or years before trying again or does it mean that's the end of the road for him with the RM?

    It's usually a knock back for 3+ years. Technically it's a "don't bother" but it's accepted people may sometimes significantly buck their ideas up if they have a few years to dwell upon it - "case by case".

    I was the one who was WBOC on bottom field, after the first carry I was throwing up and could barely walk, but it only has made me want it more I will be upping my training so I can hopefully pass on my second attempt in 3 months time

    The sergeant major told him that it was the end of the road however he could potentially join the army and then after a few years transfer over to the marines, which he seemed keen to do.

    i was doing arny's but changed when i had my pjft to basically constant 3 milers on the treadmill and then leading up to PRMC i focused on shorter tempo runs, i think my biggest downfall was not training legs enough, so make sure that you really train your legs because people do tend to not focus on legs because there isnt an actual test which involves leg strength. But you arent *text deleted* get through bottom field and the endurance course without good leg strength

    cheers pal, and yes you need to train legs, alot of the lads do sports and things which involve lots of leg training so there legs are already pretty strong but if that isnt the case its very important to train legs, especially them quads

    Arny's plan is spot on if you follow it properly. The hill sprints, longer runs and AMRAP sessions strengthen and build plenty of endurance in your legs. Nothing can really prepare you for Thursday. You just have to dig out and if you want it enough, you will pass.

    Thanks for the insight @MozzaLUFC . Quick one regarding legs, I do a lot of cycling in my training and in particular hill climbing to really work on the muscular endurance in the quads. I've seen a huge improvement as I failed my first PJFT for my quads dying on me but now am passing it every time and awaiting a retake. Is this the kind of quad work you talk about or do you think on reflection it would be appropriate to do leg weights as well?
