I know that this can probably go in the health and fitness section, but its a newbie question as well so... I read on the Navy website that potential new recruits need to be able to do at least 39 sit ups and 20 press ups, with two minutes given to complete each set. I've just done as many press ups and sit ups as I can and find these targets incredibly easy to achieve. I'm not really that fit and I achieved the minimum standards within one minute of starting out, which gives me the impression that I have missed the point somewhere along the line; have I got the standards right? The ones I found are for a 16 year old recruit and I'm 20, but still the standards don't seem particularly high even if they are a bit stricter for my age group. Link to the RN standards that I found - http://www.careers.royalnavy.mod.uk/pdf/speed_testsheet_v2.pdf Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
