Does the RNR have an onbard role?

There's a bit of confusion with some of us over whether the RNR actually train and deploy onboard ships, or are strictly a shore support role?

3 int corps

Anyone have any info on them? I know they had a site up a while back, but that seems to have gone down, and the only stuff i can find on them is all about the regs.

Also, anyone have any personal experience with the regiment, with their training, etc?

There's no real mathematical formula at work, but as someone who has been both a keen runner and a lifeguard, i would say about 400 to 500 metres is equivalent to a mile.

Does the regiment that you're transferring from make a difference in whether you go straight through to phase 2 or not?

I emailed them asking for their 12 week program just after passing my phase 1 training with the TA. Never heard a thing back.

It was an informal interview, pretty laid back. I had a brief on the Int Corp in general and details on pay, commitments etc. Approx 80% of applicants are graduates, and they can afford to pick and choose as quite a few people apply. Not being a Graduate does not have seemed to hindered my applicat...

3 second breaths???? I must be built differently then, because i'm breathing in and out like a bellows when i'm sprinting. :lol: But for speed, heres a couple of simple tips. 1) concentrate on keeping your shoulders relaxed. If you start to hunch and tense your shoulders then it impairs your breathi...

yeh mechanical comprehension is the area of intelligence you'll be using whenever you strip and clean your weapon, or try and work out coordinates on a map, so they place a high priority on it.

If you're going to failure, followed by negative reps, after the first set, how many reps are you actually able to do on the second and third sets?

The way i used to mix it up, was to follow a very simple press up program for about a month, in which time i roughly doubled how many press-ups i could do. Generally it went: Sat - one set of press-ups til failure. Use this number as a basis for the following week. Sunday - rest. Mon - Fri, 3 sets o...

It will help a lot if you carry on doing it the way you are. To get all technical, there have been books written about the sort of training you describe, and research papers carried out by Russian sports scientists, that highly recommend it. It's know either as "greasing the groove" or &qu...

Posting a bit late i know, but... The method that really worked for me - pyramids never did for some reason or another :-? - was to do half my maximum press ups, three times a day, all week long. IE assuming my maximum was 20, like yours, my routine would be: Mon - Fri: x10 in the morning before bre...

If you're low tech, like me, and like keeping workouts simple to avoid overcomplicating things, here's a little one i used to do. Go to your local park and find 2 trees a decent distance apart - anything from 30 - 100 metres. Sprint from one to the other, walk back to the first one, and repeat. Do t...
