Female press up standards

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Ive searched this forum for info but can't find anything that's been posted recently so don't know if standards have changed but I was wondering if women are required to do full press ups or on there knees either on PRNC or Raleigh or even both?
    The fitness booklet given out by AFCO only says women should do them on there knees but Ive been practising doing full incase I need to but i'm struggling with progression in my reps.
     
  2. It's full press ups for us ladies too. At PRNC you do them in the gym. They're not pass or fail but the amount you achieve will be logged and sent to Raleigh. At Raleigh they are pass or fail though (as you would expect!) one female at my PRNC didn't manage any(!) but as stated, she didn't fail the whole course. Practice makes perfect!
