Some people just naturally have stronger backs and arms mate. Ive been lifting weights for a few years and think that its helped me on some of the excercise's. I wouldnt worry to much though mate,getting into the Corp is a lot more than how many pullups you can do.As long as your banging a few out mate then let your other strengths shine through,be it attitude,fitness etc.

All i can say is keep at it with the pullups,dont do them everyday as you wont progress. Try getting freinds to help with negative,or cheated ones once you cant complete anymore on your own

Little thread made up today
http://www.prmc.co.uk/showthread.php?t=2078

pullups is nothing about size,
Have a ganders through that thread mate.. You been to a gym at all? tried assisted pullups? if u havnt then i recomend it, build up a tolerence for banging out good quality pull ups, if u can do 4 then u obviously have no problem doing it, its all down to practice... the more u practice the better, But as above, it isnt the end of the world if you cant progress past 4,

Try raising your self and then taking 4 seconds to slowly lower yourself and repeat. I found this initially helped me get off the 3 mark hehe, now able to do 9 or so. Also try a wide grip, raise yourself and then shift your body weight over to the left and then over to the right in slow controled movements - do it as many times as you can.

All you need is patience and practice with this little bugger!

The points awarded are from an RMAD pass, not a PRMC - there is a distinction.

To "pass" RMAD, you must pass the 3 mile run & score at least 17 overall on the RM Fitness Assessment which must be a obtained by a minimum of 4 points in each section, in one section you must reach at least 5. (You cannot score 2 points in one section & 6 in another to make good the shortfall).

Again scoring 17 indicates you have the potential to pass PRMC, but some people "pass" RMAD then flunk PRMC.

The run is pretty much the same, 1.5 mile best effort back must be under 10 mins 30 secs.

Ideally you should aim for under 10 mins on the run back.

The reason why my pull-ups lack is purely because i don't have convenient access to a pull-up bar.

on ebay you can get one called a 'powerbar' thirty quid like so abit expensive but it just hooks on, gives you good height for pull-ups and it is a PULL-UP bar, not a chinning bar like the argos ones, you can get a good wide grip and lower yourself fully, cannot reccomend them enough.

ive got a powerbar..just under £30 from boysstuff.co.uk.

i agree, theyre very very good...no damage to door fram, and theyre higher than the argos ones, so its more "realistic" to the height of the beam down at CTCRM

worth the £30 definately :shakehands:

I use the cheap £7 bar from Argos but instead of putting it in a door frame I have put it in the loft hatch.

It is wider than a doorway so it allows better wide arm pull ups and the loft gives the required headroom as well.

I just need to be careful not to fall down the stairs if I lose my grip!

Can someone tell me the smallest length the Argos one's will go? I have a loft hatch in my room, too but it's smaller than the door frame.

Thanks,
