i think 11 out of 26 passed. about 10 failed in the gym 7-8 of which were on the bleep test (be prepared) and a few on points. 2 left on day 1 the rest failed on Bottom field and EC.Well done guys. How many passed etc? Got mine in few weeks, don't know whether I'm nervous or exciting? Seems to be a lot failing on form lately. Could you give us an insight to questions asked on interview?
no just one foot. you get 2 warnings then out. after my first warning i started to panic and from there t all went down hill. if your foot is an inch away from the fline you will be flagged then if it happens twice more your out.sorry to hear that mate, you'll be back in no time! did you have to have both feet over the line at each end or just one?
Is that both feet over the line?yeh they were very strict. i failed bleep test by a few shuttles. your feet have to go over the line not just touch it.
on a side note for anyone else they are really hammering it down with interviews and corp knowledge. make sure you brush up on corp history, memorable dates, RM ORBAT (structure) and recent history.
Appreciate the time you've taken to type this all out, and it will be used to help me progress cheers!My lads PRMC stats were
Bleep test 12.1
Sit ups 67
Pull up 9.
He found the bottom field/endurance course very tough, but very doable. He also said he felt quite strong across the board in all aspects of PRMC, and said this plan worked really well for him.
Any questions. Feel free lads. If you want yo direct them to my lad, please do so. He doesn't come on here much, so I can reply on his be half.
Good luck. And smash it next time round lads.
Yeah the weights are definitely not needed unless they're lower body exercises used to tire the legs as the only benefit I reaped from doing weights was the gain in mass and improving pull ups.Thanks mate. It was not an easy journey, everyone suffers from a lack of motivation, and sometimes we never really go outside our comfort zone when we should. My lad will admit that too, he worked extremely hard in the end, and it payed off. If there's anything you need. I'll be here always. It will never be too much trouble to help any of you lads out.
I must admit. I did wonder if the plan I put together for him was good enough. I thought, should I include more weights? But I'm ex infantry, and just went with my gut, as what worked for me during my time in the military.
Thank you girl your kind comments, regarding my lads performance, I'm just glad the plan I put together for him works. It can work for you too.
Dust yourself down mate. Train hard, and get on your way to your green lid.
Just a quick question do you warm up on the rower with the weight vest on or off?Gym session. Get yourself a 10 kg weighted vest. Warm up 2000m in under 10 mins on a rower. Then do. To failure
3 x sets of weighted vest press-up
3 x sets of weighted vest sit up
3 x sets of weighted vest pull up.
3 x sets body weight press up
3 x sets body weight sit up
3 x sets body weight pull up
3 x sets of assisted press up
3 x sets of half sits
3 x sets of pull up
Then finish with, 10 min AMRAP of
10 box jumps to 24"box.
How was his fitness before starting your training and how long did he have to train before his prmc?Ye really really helped with my lads press-up sit up and pull ups. Try doing 3 sets to failure to the bleep! Also very versatile, you could try doing a few hill sprints with it on too! If your feeling particularly sadistic!! Ha ha!!
Wow that's great progression! I have around 6 or 7 weeks until my prmc so I'm going to use this plan and see how much I can improve. Thanks arny!His fitness levels before PRMC were not too bad, but it was rugby fitness. I did a 12 week programme for him, in prep for PRMC. And his PRMC fitness went through the roof. Before PRMC training plan.
8 mile best effort 1:35
1.5m best effort 12:55
Press up 26
Sit up 38
Pull up 4
8 mile best effort 57:56
1.5m best effort 8.53
Press up 49
Pull ups 10
PRMC fitness is specific, so look at what's required for that, and train for that only. No good spending 4 days a week lifting weights.
