I am practicing my push-ups for my physical this MONDAY!!!

Wish me well.

Can never do 'em with my elbows tucked in, though. Wasn't designed that way.

Good luck, hope you do well.  If you have any problems just don't let your brain comprehend what your body is doing until you've passed, then let yourself feel the burn. :)

Good Luck on the joke that is a physical.

Do as many push-ups/sit-ups as you can as this will help you get selected before everyone else

I thought the physical was going to be really hard but I did mine yesterday and it was really easy, especialy the step tests. I'm 18 and they only made me to the last 2 stages I think. The music could be better though.

I can do 20.

Also, I practiced a few today. Both my chest and stomach seem to touch the ground.

you don't have to let your chest hit the ground, just make sure your arms are 90degree angle! or they won't count.

The physical isn't extremely hard, I found that it went by quite easily if you keep somewhat active.

I'd have to agree that they should change the music on the step test, and they should also think about changing the voice, something about the polish guy freaked me out. I personally would have preferred to do the 2.4 km run, but thats me.

good luck :salute:

I take it, they don't make you run on your PT, they just go with what you say on your self-assessment?

since you, and my friend have said the same thing.

Yeah thats correct, they ask for the time it takes for a 2.4 km run.

I am only worried about chin-ups and the run but I think I am able to get through both.  I'm amazed how fast your can increase your reps in pushups if you do it everyday;  I went from struggling with 20 to doing 40 within a week time.

On my physical, they told me to stop at 19, and 19 respectivly.

I found that too when I started doing pushups. But the only thing is though I find that once I was around 50 that was my stagnation point, I'm trying some new exercises to increase my pushup reps and am hoping to get up to 60 before BMQ starts up.

Good luck

Then you got cheated....The better you do on your physical (ie. the more pushups/situps you do, the stronger your grip, etc....) the better chance you have of getting selected on the merit list before someone else. That same goes with your interview, medical, aptitude test, high school grades....they are all taken into consideration and from this you will get an MP score. The higher your MP score, the faster youll get selected.

Why do you think some guys get selected in like 1 month while it takes others 9?

They are easier if you go fast. At least that is what I find.

Ya when I did mine I felt doing it fast helped. Power it threw and remember to exhale as you push up.
The more you live, the less you die.
