Re: Pre Selection 18th March

If I was you(and I was when I started I could only do 22) I would start off with the 100 press-up program, get used to your bodyweight as it is at the moment.

All your training is conducted at catterick and last for 28 weeks, we then go on nijmegen company where we carry out our ceremonial duties which I have been told can last from 6 to 12 months. Put a bit more effort into looking for what you need mate.
