I completed the Royal Marine Initial Fitness Test (RMIFT) today:
Part One (One point for each rep)
Sit Ups: (As many as possible in 30s) - 32
Press Ups: (To a maximum of 30 with no rest) - 30
Squat Thrusts: (As many as possible in 30s) - 32
Dips: (As many as possible in 30s) - 50
Run 2.4Km within 15 mins.
- Under 9mins - 90
- 9 to 10: 80
- 10 to 11: 70 (10:21)
- 11 to 12: 60
- 12 to 13: 50
- 13 to 14: 40
- 14 to 15: 30
Total Score 214
Over 205 - Commando
165 - Marine
135 - Nod
105 - Civvie
75 - Couch Potatoe
So I got a total score of 214. I could have pushed faster on a few of the exercises - there is definitely more to come. As for the running, I was running 14km/h for at least half the time and as I have not run over a mile for about 5 years, I had no idea what level of intensity I could manage. In retrospect I could push it to 16km/h (the max on the running machines). Looks like that sprinting is paying off with a carry over in to short distances.
I have my eyes on completing an O'Neill Test and a '300 Workout' over the coming months to ensure my training is developing functional physical integrity and metabolic headroom.
