I would just like to say I have passed my interview but I nearly failed my medical. I can do the 1.5-mile in the time allocated and the sit-ups. Sadly my press-ups are off the mark by quite away! I can manage 10 and I need to get this up to 27 in 10 weeks or they may refuse me. However the recruitment officer seemed to like me and wants me to join and has given me this ultimatum. Other than doing sit-ups/going to the gym can anyone recommend some exercises to increase my upper body strength in a relatively short time frame.
