  6. 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.
     
  7. 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

  9. I think trunk curls are what we call sit-ups

    as for the dips, I think they are on parallel bars
