    For guys out of the academy don't forget...we still have to do the stair master again at the end of probation. For some reason, alot of probies i work with and bump into dont seem to know that. Guys are throwing away and selling their weight vest. Imo, the weighted stepmill is the best cardio you can do for this job. It's much more job specific than running. I do 15 minutes with the vest on 3 times a week. And every time I throw on my SCBA the day after it feels like I'm not even wearing anything. I'm an engine guy and there are alot of High Rise MD's in my area with busted elevators; which means multiple flights of stairs with a roll up. And since I'm in a double house, every once in a while I work in the Truck and find myself walking up 6 flights with a hook, mask and can, which is even worse.

    My total stepmill time is 30 minutes. I do 15 minutes with the vest on to simulate "getting there". Then i immediately follow it up with another 15 minutes without the vest to simulate continuing to work AFTER "getting there". Do not abandon the stepmill

    Wait till you get off probation, still do all the work, but it's a big relief getting off.

    How many SPM are you setting it at spider ? Also, what weight is your vest ?

    I'm at 22 mins total time right now on the step mill, 4-5 times a week. 15 mins without vest i can do no problem, with vest im working my way up week by week. Hopefully i can get to 15 mins with vest.

    How often do they do the medicals? Been seeing people with the same date. They test lots of people at once?
