    bobs wanted

    Yet to start training as SC, but due to start 23rd of this month in DPP, so a complete newbie (and therefore, perhaps I shouldn't even be posting !!) Apologies if not. However, isn't discrimination an offence ? It's like me, being a female officer, refused entry into a suspect's house as suspect has issues with women, but my 2 male colleagues were allowed entry !!

    Physical Assessment

    Hi Lauren123. Well done on getting this far, it's a tough, long old road !!!!!! I failed the bleep test and pull test first time around. Upped my game big time by increasing circuits to 3 times a week, running/jogging every lunchtime and literally running everywhere in between, to the post office, to other offices, in the supermarket lol, and increasing my upper body training in gym sessions 3 times a week and at least 150 reps at home with tins of food lol !!!!!!!!!!! Push ups against the wall, felt bit nuts doing it but worked as I passed 2nd time in with plenty to spare and now starting training 23rd this month !!!!! If I can do it, a proper office bod couch potato youngish 41 yr old, anyone can do it !!!! Good luck
