Re: Doing reserve p company in April 2018

I passed the reserve p coy in December, I was running 6-8 miles once a week, 3-4 miles ending with hill sprints once a week, circuits 2-3 times a week and a tab thrown in at the weekend. Your unit drill nights should provide you with a good phys session too.

Re: Para PT

You start doing runs 5, 6 7 miles. Circuits on the astro turf. Start tabbing around week 4-6. And obviously lots and lots of corridor sessions

Re: training supplements?

Creatine is banned from catterick it dehydrates you. A lad died from dehydration a few years ago and its been banned since. A few lad were taking protein and recovery supplement when I was there and nothing was said.

Re: Paras with no chutes

Have a look on the parachute regiment Facebook page. There is a big post about it. I don't know what to believe.

Re: pay rate while in basic training

Is it true that paras get extra pay once they have done their jumps?
