On the other I came out before,so I think "well,if I couldnt hack it then what makes now different?" :-? Im not sure what Im worried about honestly,home si...

The way I got my pressups better I started by doing 4 sets of 5,then 4 sets of 10 and so on until you can get upto about 30 in one set.
Also,doing tricep dips will help too.

I identify with this. Im tottering on the brink of rejoining at the moment after shamefully trying training before.. :oops: Im holding back and strongly considering things at the moment though,whether I want to go back really,whether I could actually really even LAST the course (main thing holding m...

"Unsuitable for service"

Now,when I was in training I asked to leave,so that would be my DAOR. How can I be deemed "unsuitable for service" if they didnt kick me out? I know my army report said "Unsuitable for service and Para reg" from my platoon commander but that was only on a weeks training.... :oops: I was down the AFC...

Generally mate,if you had a fairly good fitness level before your injury then it shouldnt take that much time to get back to a decent fitness.

Im just coming back off a injury I got in november!!! :o Bloody thing kept popping out everytime I tried to run. :roll:

Spearhead Assault

By John Geddes.
A really good read I think.Havent finished it yet but its told in a plain,brutally honest way like youd expect from a battle worn soldier.
Its really easy to read too,Ive found some books in this genre are really hard to follow whats going on where...:-?
