PRNC Press-ups (Females)

Hi all, just a quick question.

I join Raleigh in a few weeks and have just been told by a few girls I join with that girls now cant do press-ups on there knees and they have to do them like the boys do.

The fitness booklet I have says women must do them on there knees to prevent injury, so I cant see how this can be true. Can someone please clarify this for me.

I am starting to worry as I can only do 10 the other way but if it is true I still will have time to build it up before Raleigh.

Thank you :)

Just do lots of good form press Ups in all styles, keep doing them and then you're prepared for any eventuality. And have bench arms!

Ha well I am doing them both ways at the moment, to cover for both possiblities just 3 weeks isnt a long time to build up the boys press-ups.

Did you not have to do full press ups on PRNC? We were told we had to do full ones and could drop to our knees once we couldn't do anymore but the ones on our knees didn't count towards the score we gave at the end. We were advised that we will be expected to do full press ups at Raleigh.

Hope this helps x

I'm reliably advised that HMS Raleigh informed the acquaint centres in April this year that males and females will now do full press-ups, a maximum in one minute.

Presumably this will be formally announced sooner or later and page 9 of the Pre Joining Fitness Programme issued to all potential joiners, will be amended in due course to reflect the change:http://c69011.r11.cf3.rackcdn.com/fc...ddef02-0x0.pdf

I wondered who would be first, dirty boy back on the step

What again=D

Unfortunately I was thinking along the same lines Sumo, off to the naughty step!!

I am I ever going to get of this step?:happy6:
:happy6:
Google press up variations and build strength to your own personal limits rather than that required by the navy.

Is it not the naval requirement you are trying to achieve as pass or fail will depend on this? Being able to stick your thumb up your arse and whistle Royal Britannia may be good in its right but useless if not required?:confused4:

Whilst of little consolation, until you actually mentioned it on here, I was unaware of this change & suspect that we weren't alone.

Best of luck.

News just in....

Those joining HMS Raleigh should be aware that as part of a trial, recruits and trained ratings, male and female, will conduct a one minute maximal test of sit-ups and one minute maximal test of full press-ups.

It is not a pass/fail test, just a means of gathering data for changes that may or may not be implemented at a later date.

The New Entry Fitness Test and the Royal Navy Fitness Test pass/fail criteria remains "as is" until further notice.

Those joining HMS Raleigh, male and female, are therefore advised to practice maximum effort one minute of sit-ups and maximum effort one minute of full press-ups as part of their routine fitness preparations in accordance with the Pre Joining Fitness Programme.

how low do you have to go?

Judging by the pre-joining fitness programme, your chest touches the clenched fist of your oppo on each dip.
Press-ups.jpgSupport position: Hands should beplaced shoulder-width apart with your fingers pointing forward; your back should be straight with head and eyes looking naturally forward. From this position your body should be lowered until your chest is just clear of the ground (arms at 90 degrees), and then extend your arms back to the support position.
