We don't give a toss what forum you post in matey, it's the prefects that get their panties in a bunch over that sort of thing.
 
From what I can remember from when I was on small ships who are always crawling with CD's.

The Divers Provisional Fitness Test (DPFT) consists of:

2.4Km warm-up run in 15 Mins

2.4Km run in under 10 1/2 Mins

8 chin ups

40 flat bench trunk curls in 1 Min

16 Dips

Hope that helps
