    Not really, I would throw some distance in there. Sprints are good for improving lung capacity/speed but still will need to go for distance in my opinion.

    Thanks.
    Run letters for the last class started getting emailed on 6/2 for a 7/14 academy which is about a month and a half in advance. If our academy starts 12/29 then the first batch of run emails may start getting sent out mid November IMO. What do you guys think ?

    And for guys that want to predict what class they might be going into the previous 4 classes have gone through about 600-700 spots to fill up each class so do the math with those numbers.

    keep hope alive for the 3classes a year. Im also in the 30xx range and hoping to make it to the Sept class if so. January 2016 seems so freakin far.

    75 burpees... thats one way to get in shape. be nice to your wrists on those burpees

    if 700 per class is the new normal. these are the next classes

    jan 15 - 2059
    july 15 -2759
    jan 16 - 3459

    my guess is july 15 class stops at list number between 2500-2800

    Don't sleep on the grip strengthing exercises, fellas. From what everybody says, it's pretty crucial. Using that rope pull machine at the academy during cpat prep should have given you an idea, if you've gotten to by now.
