Just chosen this date. Bit early but is anybody else on this one?
Feeling confident in terms of I just want to get this cracked and out the way, quit work and train with the RM's.That's annoying!
How are you feeling? What are your stats like?
True mate. You have to have confidence in yourself otherwise it's a defeat before you've even started.
True mate good words to listen to!True mate. You have to have confidence in yourself otherwise it's a defeat before you've even started.

How about you?
Air in for AFCO to contact me mate, I'm takin what I get, want all the prep available!Have you requested a date or were you made to wait a certain amount of time before you could?
At least you have the experience of a PRMC and have seen your weakness. Now to work hard at it and next time I'm sure you'll fly it. Have you been doing a BFT then a bleep test a couple of hours later?True mate good words to listen to!
Well, I've passed Pfjt then failed Prmc in June thanks to being rubbish at the bleep test but recently redone my Pfjt and got a PB on it thankfully and now awaiting a date for Prmc attempt 2!
Yeah I have done, prior to my first one I was just doing a bleep test. Now I do 2xbft then a bleep test! I usually get over 11 but once or twice don't but guess everyone has a bad day!At least you have the experience of a PRMC and have seen your weakness. Now to work hard at it and next time I'm sure you'll fly it. Have you been doing a BFT then a bleep test a couple of hours later?
Hope you smash it with PBs mate! Be a good confidence booster!Fair one.
Yeah, this will be my second RMAD. Looking forward to getting some PBs. Made big improvements since the last one!
A technique what helps me with the Vo2 is when you get to the high end levels 10+ start switching legs you push off with every level, this stops your legs getting fatigued quickly.@Royal671 I think the most important thing for the bleep test is technique. It's very stop and start and it's the constant change in direction that catches people out.
I suspect you'll find most of the guys who fail the bleep test have never practiced and so go into the bleep test blind and get caught out.
A handy thing you can do during a bleep test is to constantly push your goal start of thinking level 11 then I'm safe , then once you get to 10.5 think one more levels not impossible so I'll push to 11.5 then once your close to that might as well push for the round number of 12 and so on. It worked well for me though eventually your legs do give out but you'll be surprised how much further and longer you can run.
Oh a brother in agony too! HaSame really, big motivation is to leave work before the Christmas rush (bloody retail!)
I did a mock day one recently and scored:
Return - 8:45
VO2 - level 12
Press Ups - 45
Sit Ups - 63
Pull ups - 5
Bleep test is well worth practicing. It seems to be catching a lot of lads out.
I'm excited now but I have an RMAD on 21st October which I'm focussing on for the time being.
