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. hi all. i've just sent off my application, and there's an issue I'd like to have cleared up if possible... Do women do the same press-ups as the men in the RN? Or do we do the knees-down type press-ups?

    Thanks guys!

    Vicky. :roll:
     
  2. Knees down, legs crossed for press-ups. Everything else is the same.
     
  3. Anyone know why? I mean, I do struggle with doing proper push ups but why should it be different for females??
     
  4. Something to do with extra bits and bobs. There was a huge thread on it a while ago.
     
  5. That's great, thanks for your help! :wink:
     
  6. It's the sit ups that I'm more worried about. I'm ok if I have something over my feet, like a bench, but otherwise it's a no go. Oh well, practice makes perfect and all that!! :?
     
  7. You get some one to hold your feet then swap over.
     
  8. Oh that's ok then. I'm using the fitness programme from online and there's a picture there of people doing them by themselves, must just be showing off then! lol.
