  1. Has the run time been lowered? I thought it was 11mins for the first run then sub 9.50min for the second one. I also thought it was done a treadmill with an incline. Dont tell me the RMs are lowing their standards.

  2. Recently there's a news article making the rounds that the British Army has gone 'crazy' and dropped the push up and sit up portion of the training as to adhere to a more "Gender Neutral" environment. People are obviously eating this tripe up by the shovel load and have now started to declare the country is run by snowflakes that can't do basic exercise or some sort of nonsense about lowering standards for woman to compete with men….. blah blah blah.

    Personally I think it's because there's much more efficient ways to build muscle and test stamina than the good old knees up mother brown school of training.

    Can you comment on what is actually happening and how this affects the quality of Soldiers going forward into this brave new world called Monday the 24th of September 2018 ?

  3. There is no way that big ass Marine isnt on juice. Dude is bigger than you can be naturally especially doing military style training. Not that I really give af but noobies should know they arent going to look like him from doing some push ups and eating wheaties.

  4. There is talk of the UN invading the United States because of President Trump. If you send your royal Marines to invade us we will unfortunately have to kill all these hunky guys. Come as tourists we can show you a good time. We haven't really changed all that much since 1775.
