    Couple tricks that i know of from my wrestling days. If you're hungry drink 64 oz of water before you eat. Make yourself a garbage bag sweatsuit using duct tape to seal off at the wrists and go for a long run. The day before you can even sweat out a good amount of weight by taking multiple super hot baths. I wouldn't recommend some of the other means people used ie tins of chew instead of food, diet pills, and laxatives. And obviously if you are getting light headed stop working out or get outta the tub.

    You might be able to drop like 10 lbs very quickly with these methods but its not great for your body so be careful. Hopefully you don't have to actually do anything physical after your weigh in.

    Yeah I was looking at the Blueprint as well, but it's a taddd pricey for my liking.

    It's all about blending, bros. With more veggies than fruits. You want that fiber which juicing doesn't give you. And preferably with a vitamix or blendtec, which are both absurdly expensive.

    Juicing is incredibly messy and annoying to clean up too...

    If you wear your workout gear to the building, what do you need the combination lock for?

    You can try Russian banya's/bathhouses. You can go in there and sweat your butt off. I'm pretty thin but I went in one day and lost at least 4 pounds. All you have to do is sit down and deal with the heat. Good luck

    In case you have anything you want to lock up like keys, a phone, wallet, whatever else you may have that you don't want to drop while doing the test.

    Yeah man. A bunch of greens like kale, spinach, cucumber, etc mixed with a fruit or two to make it taste somewhat ok. There are many "green smoothie" recipes online. And as high powered blender as you can get, not just like a $50 one from target. You need to "smoothie" that ish as much as possible to make it drinkable, and those cheaper ones are cheap for a reason.

    Ya know, IMO...

    So I had my medical and I have to go re-take the stairs. Just wondering if when you go back if you redo all parts of the medical(blood,EKG, vitals, urine etc.) Trying to know what to expect so I am not as overwhelmed. Getting on those stairs everyday though preparing for those 8 minutes!

    As far as weight cutting goes, I would highly advise against using any sort of plastic bags or plastic suits in combination with sauna's or hot baths, it just isn't smart. Wrestlers at all levels have died using such techniques and it is very harsh on your body.

    If you only have 3-4 pounds to go, the best approach, I think, if to get in a good workout the night before you need to weigh in. Wear a single layer of sweats. Run on the treadmill, use the stepmill or whatever you prefer. Even mix in some push-ups, sit-ups, pull-ups, mountain climbers, etc. Once you have good sweat going or if your sweats start to wet through, check your weight. If you need to keep going change into shorts and a t-shirt and train a bit more. Also, eat a meal before you workout. My go to was grilled chicken and steamed vegetables. The next day, if you can go early to weigh in, do it. Don't eat until after you've done so.

    At night, it's possible that you'll 'drift' weight. For some it's more than others, I lose between 2-3 pounds just sleeping. So, if you go to bed at the weight you need to be at, you should be at least a bit under in the morning.

    This isn't something for constant use. You want to get as close to the weight required and set up good eating and training habits to help you maintain that. Find something sustainable, that works for you.

    youll just have to retake the stairs in the same sequence you did it the first time. If your heart rate isnt where its supposed to be at by the 5 min mark they will tell you to keep going for 8 . Train every other day and do more weight and more time and at a faster steprate then what they say . Because IMO that stepmill is faster than 60 steps per minute.

    It says to bring a lock, but you don't have to. You put your stuff in a locker and he writes the locker number and you name. They watch the lockers for you.

    You're overthinking it. If you're going for your official CPAT attempts just show up in your athletic gear. Must wear pants. Bring money order.

    At the end of the academy you have to do the CPAT again (it's a state requirement). I don't think my time improved at all, but god the test feels so easy now. I'd happily do it 2 or 3 times in a row instead of FST.
