I'm not saying this is excellent or top of the class superman fit but every morning when I wake I do 100 sit ups and 50 press ups (Add 10 every other week).

I try to get all my standards to/or surpass that of the booties standards... you know to get a good dress figure for Raleigh.

I would have throught to take your personal best and keep increasing it thus building up your strength. It immaterial if you can do 10 /20 /100 there is always room to improve!

Why do you need to live in a gym??? press ups / sit ups you can do in your bedroom at home.
I thought that when I posted it :neutral: . I'm going with - only doing pressups at home would be boring as hell.

[EDIT] at the gym you could do exercises/weights/cardio which would all help increase your max pressups/situps

Up to you! Gym membership is ££££s and bedroom costs zilch .... get out in the fresh air ... get some road running in and en route do a set of pressups and sit ups in the local park / hedge / field / beach ... wherever takes your fancy - fancy Gym equipment doesn't make you stronger or run longer.

The trouble is I live in Wales and it's less going for a run and more going mountain climbing... plus the weather has been shite until this last week or so.

[EDIT] £20 a month isn't too bad...I would have free membership if it wasn't for corrupt bloody councillors.

[EDIT2] Running on grass is much better than running on the road - less impact on your joints.

Pretty much this, My local park installed pull up, dip bars, box jump boxes with holes to put your feet in for sit ups and a load of other exercise stuff last summer. It means I can do the DPFT without having to even enter a gym. which is a bonus on sunny days!

My local council spend millions on total bullshit rather than anything practical.

Swimming - "Swim 40 meters and tread water for 3 minutes in overalls"

is everything in overalls or just the 3 min tread water?

Out of interest is this because you need to swim 40m from a ship to deploy a life raft that takes 3 minutes to unpack and inflate? or is there no specific reason?
