Repeated Lift & Carry of Weight over 30m
Run 30m 5 times with the weight and 4 times without.
As part of the regional selection process, just outside of Dharan, Gurkha recruits are expected to demonstrate their strength and determination with a short Lift & Carry test.
The aim of this test is to complete the challenge in the quickest possible time. The Lift & Carry is used over traditional exercises, such as push-ups and sit-ups, to simulate a real-life battle situation. No one has ever done a push-up in the field, but they have had to carry heavy objects and/or casualties.
