Under 5k in 23.5 mins isn't very demanding, high school kids run much faster than that. The ranges that are given are a joke, they should be a set number minimum.

It clearly stats the minimum and recommended amounts for push-pus and pull-ups. I don't know much about the run

the run doe not seem that hard.

It says that you do it on a treadmill. No mention of how much gear you carry if any.

I am at 42 consecutive push-ups and 10 pull-ups. Sit ups are for pussies instead. Do leg raises L-sits or dragon flags.

Friend in the navy has said that the first wave of women are about to take the Royal Marines fitness test.

Should women be in the Royal Marines ?

Do you know any women who could pass this test ?

Could you pass this test ?

I can pass that, im curious as to the time between elements. I would struggle to finnish the beep test immediately after a 23min 5k.

I know two women who could keep up, they are rare specimens.

Women should not be in the military. It isnt just the fitness. The lifestyle itself is harmful to them. I have had far too many friend break hips and turn sterile from overwork. Its just no good

looks like its a 4 days test where every thing I stated in the title is on day one. Says that they basically camp out for the last night.
