PRFT navy

#4 Post by PHIL »

Hi JAY since we last spoke i could not do press ups to save my life now i can do 26 and thats quite good for me.

Anyway help or no, I would like to ask if you could confirm the amount of Squat Thrusts needed to pass the RN PRFT.

I have seen 25 or 35 from different but reliable sources you see. :banghead:

Is there anyway I can improve on these or is it one of those where you can do more by practice? :oops:

Thanks Phil :)

Unfortunately terry you have to manage 5 more, as the total is 35 reps :( my last post here was 1 month old, hence I manage 45 now, I tried it the other day and didn't fatigue until 45 reps.

I am aiming for 50+ come the end of August so no worries :wink: .

Squat thrusts are ultra draining on the knees and legs I hope we don't do too much of these as they annoy me lots :evil: .

PHIL 8) You keep training too

Not that I know, but we have to do them all the same.

Maybe to a bleep test tape to be annoying! :evil:

I'll keep you posted mate, if I hear anything.

The blurb I got about the fitness from the recruiter said nowt about any squat thrusts!!! I asked him and he said that as far as he was aware there was no set guidelines. Is he talking s*@t or not? P.s if not then what is the number for females??
Thanks very much

Pre-Joining fitness test....hmmm thats a New "Inicative" i see...
A mile and a half in 11 mins 13 seconds, whos worried?
25 press ups? 39 situps(or was it 49). ALl to bleeps, lots of fun.
The sprint was an arse though, when people get in your way.
As far as Im aware, squat thrusts are just for strengthening muscles in your thighs. blah blah blah, all in all piece of piss

Treadmill Problems..?

#15 Post by BJL475 »

Does anyone have this same problem?

I can run 2.4km on road in 9.37
But on a treadmill I can only do it in 13.02

I can never get my balance right on the tread, it drives me mad, the guy at the gym reckons looking at the machine will do this, but if I look straight ahead it makes me worse.

Anyone else have/had this probelm...
Pschometric Test- passed
Eye Test- passed
Interview-passed
Medical -passed
RNAC - 05/02/07
PJFT - pending
