One of the annual fitness tests I have to do is get over a 6ft wall with 20.7kg of weight including webbing, helmet and rifle. I find it easy but one of my mates couldn't do it, he'd had about 15 attempts over 2 days and was on his last chance. I took him into our drying room and started working him through Eva T's pull up lesson as best I could from memory, we didn't get further than swinging back and forth with a little hop off a chair on the way back before he got frustrated with his lack of coordination. But I managed to pass on that the way he'd been using his hips is how to get over the wall rather than trying to use his arms. I didn't attend his final test but he got over the wall first time reporting that he did exactly what I taught him. Thanks Eva, that lesson got me free beer and kept my mate on course!
