You think one day per week for those two lifts is good just to keep your brute strength in check?
    One day is good enough for me. I maintain a 400 lbs deadlift and a 315 lbs squat. I basically do 5x5; one set at 60%, one set at 80% then 3 sets at max weight. Pretty standard heavy lift program. You may not want to do this while you're at the Rock, and as a matter of fact I didn't because that kind of weight can f*** you up if your already tired and not able to concentrate. I really didn't notice the difference until I went to a few jobs before and after I added the heavy lifts. Makes a world of difference on the line and going up stairs under weight. The circuit program they'll give you should absolutely be the cornerstone of your program. Try it both ways see how it works for you.

    Yea simply put I'm worried about sacrificing strength for endurance since I'm a swimmer/runner type as it is and am not a guy with natural brute strength. But from what I hear about training for the academy (if I get the opportunity to get there), this mix should be good. I just need to keep putting the work in and stop worrying about semantics.

    Personal role model of mine, Captain Patrick Brown. Humble, down-to-earth, lead by example, and always put his men before himself. He was an avid and enthusiastic practitioner of yoga. If it's good enough for the Captain, it is good enough for you. (Check out the book Miss You, Pat by Sharon Watts to learn more about this man)

    I believe yoga has many benefits for firefighters.

    -Mobility. When we get older, it becomes an even greater factor. Mobility is very important and underrated aspect of health/fitness. It provides a great balance for all the strength/conditioning work done.

    -Mind. Emphasis on quieting the mind. Improve focus. Positive benefit for mental health(like what Captain Brown said in the video) and stress reduction.

    -Health. Thousands of articles online and personal testimonials on yoga.

    21xx is a decent list number. You'll get there at some point. Keep training and hang in there. Give the heavy weights a try once a week see if it works for you. You'll have to eat a bit more to get through those workouts, too.

    Capt Brown was as good as they come. Hell of a Marine and the model we should all be shooting for as firemen. Sure would like to have had him as a boss to pick his brains, and I work for some of the best bosses on the job today.

    I've done Bikram yoga (hot yoga) a number of times. It's arguably the toughest thing I've ever done. I challenge any of you tough guys to coast through 90 minutes of it.

    And the women in there..........my god the women.

    I will continue to squat because I already have my form down. I would go rushing into squats from watching a youtube video, especially since they aren't that high on the priority list in comparison to climbing with a vest. If you really wanna squat and deadlift read Starting strength so you understand true proper form and lumbar extension, knees out etc.
    Took me a while to get it.

    Absolutely. Big compound lifts with bad form are a fantastic way to get yourself hurt. Learn the right way with manageable weight then get into the heavy stuff.

    Do yourself a favor. Unless it says business attire, like when you go for your orientation and paperwork at the Rock, stick with slacks and a button shirt. It can't hurt to look halfway decent. Worst case is you're a bit overdressed in front of people you don't know. But be advised important people have an eye out and names aren't hard to look up. Look the part of a professional and you'll be viewed as one.

    Because of my weird limb proportions it took me a while to find my proper form. I had to go a little wider than usual in order not to have flexion in the bottom, and push my knees out pretty far. I squat low bar and its much better for my back,less torque on back and hips are further back with out much knee travel over foot. . I also wear lifting shoes.

    Funny thing is I am weak on the stairs with the vest so I have to switch my priorities.

    Anyone know who I have to speak to in order to defer the process? Also where I can find the accepted reasons for deferment? I just got my background packet in the mail but I am still in school and need to defer until after the summer.

    Thanks!
