Thinking bout going for it. reasonably fit now, though i'll need to put some more physical in to it i reckon. Possibly join after A levels, though uni is always there to do beforehand. i just need to decide when to join
I decided to join after uni so I could have something to fall back on incase it all goes belly up. You could think about joining the RMR while at uni to get some experience.
Uh oh. You're for it now!
does any one know the process for getting in the marines. i know there is a three day selection course you need to pass but does any one know how often these prmcs occur?basically do you need to be as fit as possible before you apply or do you still have a few months to carry on getting into shape?
help much appreciated
I believe the PRMC courses are held pretty regularly. Not sure how often theya are though. For the PRMC you should be as fit as possible. Upper body strength comes into it quite alot but you also need to work on your cardio aswell for endurance.
ive not done a timed 3mile run yet but i did 12.3 on the bleep test last week i know thats stil not a good enough but if there was say a two month wait for the prmc then i could obviously imrove by then. as for upper body the press ups are fine and the sit up its the bloody pull ups im struggling on!
Make sure the pull ups are forward facing. Otherwise, when you go to do them (after being used to doing arms facing inward) you'll find them immensely difficult; there's a big difference in the muscles used by each technique.
