    So the maximum is sixty in accordance to the beep with proper form. My question is, do you get to rest during this time to try and increase your maximum repetitions? If so how are you permitted to rest?

    No rest is allowed, you have to keep in time to the beeps.

    So if you fall behind the beep even once are you stopped?

    I think you'll be given a warning but it's like running a normal beep test (other than the beeps don't speed up), fall behind and you'll be stopped.

    Just a word of warning to avoid a mistake I made. If you hear a corporal shouting stop, then best continue until the corporal actually comes over and stands in front of you/taps you on the shoulder and/or mentions your bib designation.

    They watch everyone like hawks and will be asking lads to stop left, right and center.

    The guy next to me was asked to stop due to poor form, but I thought the corporal was talking to me, I paused for 1 second too long and got asked to stand up despite having more gas in the tank.

    Just plain stupidity but scored well on everything else, but like I said, just focus on the pace of the bleep and if you hear someone saying stop, don't until they are actually in front of you/tapping you.

    Yea, you usually get 1 warning, then told to stop.

    It’s strict form, same with pull-ups and situps.
    Bleep Test you get 2 strikes to catch it up before you are pulled out.
