Joining the Paras

#1 Post by Dicko »

Hi All!

So i'm 18 at the moment and currently working as an accounts apprentice and studying my AAT as a backup to the paras.

I just have a few questions regarding the joining process.

- Can I join straight from civie street?

- What are the fitness requirements?

- What can I expect from training ie: day to day?

- I'm quite a skinny guy what supplements should I be taking if any to aid with building muscle and gaining weight?

Thanks all!

You not only have to be fit, you need to have that bit extra of mental toughness that gets threw the pain barrier. I was just a skinny kid when I joined and I neve took supplements
