    Not sure if I've read this right, but IF you continued to train in the gyn and on the treadmill AFTER passing your PJFT you would always struggle to pass a PRMC.

    My advice would be to ditch the gym after PJFT and get outside, no matter what the weather. Long runs should be up to around 8 miles. You should be doing hill sprints, carries, drags, duck walks, squats, circuits. All of these will give you the strength in your legs, as well as the lungs to get you through PRMC.

    In short, go back to Arny's plan. It has everything you need to get you through PRMC, but getting your head right is down to you.

    Good luck for your next attempt. You know what to expect, so go smash it!

    Hahaa, Cant *text deleted* let that happen mate! I changed my full time job for a part time job to be able to train better for this last attempt, i just wanted to be able to put absolutely everything into it and it be my only focus amd to be honest i had an RMAD on Wednesday and felt the best i ever have by a mile. Really concentrated on legs strength as everyone on the forum advices and it makes a massive difference

    i was on this PRMC and passed this forum was very helpful through different training programs posted around the site to peoples insight of what level is expected i have to say thank you!

    from my PJFT time of 09:31 i managed to slash over 30 seconds of and got 08:57 and the bleep test my previous best attempt was 11.5 through determination on the day i achieved 12.11

    for anyone that has a PRMC coming up just prepare yourself mentally if you want the green lid the thought of throwing in the towel will not cross your mind once

    main advice is hill sprints i done x3 sessions a week maybe Tuesday Thursday Sunday x10 sprints i had a 200 meter long hill close to me with about a 20 degrees incline just go flat out for all 10 reps this brought my training on leaps and bounds

    I've never had trouble with my legs being tired during runs whether it's 8 or 3 miles, but my legs just died on bottom field, so I'd say it's probably best to do some leg training at the gym but honestly I'm no expert, the best thing to do would be to practise the carrys with a mate

    Bit of an odd question but did anyone with legs on the skinnier side struggle more so then the rest? I have quite skinny legs and I'm just curious if this will impact:D

    Cheers to any replys

    Wouldn't say my legs are skinny but they weren't strong enough, like I could barely stand after the first carry

    am I right in thinking the minimum pull-ups required is 3?

    Yes but you definitely want to be getting more than 3!

    When you get graded A/B/C, what criteria are you graded against and how does this affect your future through RT and beyond?

    I know that it's either 15 or 16 points for a grade c pass, and 21 points for a grade b pass, not sure about grade a pass. In terms of RT the grade you get won't affect anything during training it just lets the corporals know how fit you are. Also apparently a grade c pass isn't a guarantee to start RT however they may of just said that to try and make people try harder

    Alright mate, have a look at @arny01 training programme. It's the best training training programme for a PRMC in my opinion. A lot of the lads on here have used it and been successful by following it including me so definitely have a look into it.
