    I can see them getting too 600-800 for this class (January). Then, for the following class (June), if it takes 900-1200 guys to get 300 (ill say 300 so that there is room for recycles) then that means theyll could possibly get to list numbers in the range of 1500-1800. Who knows if these numbers will actually happen, I'm just simply using the ratio of 3:1 and 4:1. If I were you Id prepare as if I was going in the June class, just in case you do get called.

    So I got a chance to do the stairmaster today with 50 lbs. I mimicked the medical with the 3 minute warm-up, 5 minute break, and then did over 10 minutes with the 50 lbs at 60 steps per minute. Thank you guys again for the advice, made me feel much more confident about Friday.

    Here's an example of how I approach training, usually at Macombs Dam Park. It has a nice track, a soccer/football field, a couple of hills and an area with pull-up and dip bars. Blink fitness has a stepmill and it's $15-$20 a month.

    Day 1
    Interval run: 1x1 mi, 2x 1/2mi, 4x 1/4mi, 4x 1/8mi, 4x 75yd hill

    With 50lb vest
    5 farmers walk x40 yds.
    6 walks, kb one hand hand hose pack on one shoulder
    5 walks with 30lb sandbag

    2x 10 kb one hand swing
    2x20 double kb swing
    2x20 hose pack clean to shoulder
    2x 10 double kb squat

    Day 2
    1.5 mi run
    10 min run at 8 minute/mile pace
    50 yd 'snake' run

    4x25 jumping jacks
    4x5 pull-ups
    4x20 sit-ups
    4x7 dips

    5 partner back carry x 50 yds.
    5 partner 'wedding' carry

    I haven't taken the actual cpat yet, at least in the past 5 year lol, just been doing the training. At the cpat training, if you fail they will let you finish. during the actual cpat they might stop you though, not sure.

    You forgot the car dead lift, the atlas stones and the Lolo Jones workout.

    Also, you're behind the times. Bodybuilding is old news. Crossfit seems to be all the rage these days. Didn't you hear? Everyone's doing it.

    C'mon - Kazmaier - or for this forum, Phil Pfister would be appropriate.

    Hey bro

    I tried going back and looking for what you and Tomfromqueens mentioned about that workout but I couldn't find it. Would one of you gentlemen be as so kind as to point me in the right direction or copy paste what workout he said?

    I have been doing some HIIT stuff from youtube but idk if that'll be enough. By the end of my youtube workouts I feel like dying but I want one that I feel like the worlds ending....Know what I mean? hahaha.

    Workout

    25 jumping jacks then 10 pushups (as a superset) x 5 This is your usual warmup at the start of PT

    25 crunches
    1 minute plank

    50 bicep curls
    30 tricep presses (do these three one after the other)
    30 shoulder presses

    20 squats
    20 leg lifts
    20 supermans (lay on your belly and lift your arms and legs at the same time for 3 seconds)

    Repeat the above sets twice but take a minute to rest between and sip some water you can do them in any order I think, but you always start with the jumping jacks. Follow this with a 3 to 5 mile run, alternating three minutes at a semi comfortable pace with two minutes as fast as you can go with good form. Stop halfway and do a few of the above exercises then finish the run.

    That's pretty much what I have been following since the summer ( 2X a week).

    I use 10 lb dumb bells which don't seem like a lot but it definitely builds endurance and burns by the end.

    I'm not trying to kill myself but definitely keeping active 5-6 days a week. I like that routine b/c you can easily change it up ( such as doing the run beforehand or adding other exercises).

    It also seems like a workout that is specific to the job being that it was suggested by someone who is OTJ.

    The above, with 10# dumbbells, is a pretty good replica of what PT at the academy is like. They do vary it a lot, but if you get good at the basics you'll have an easy time. And 10# is hell after several sets of tricep curls.

    Awesome. Similar to what I've been doin. Just a few questions:

    Are the 50 bicep curls all one set? Or do I break it up?

    And when you say "Repeat the above sets twice" do you mean the entire post or just that leg portion (squats, leg lifts, supermans).

    Sorry if these are silly questions

    I do the bicep curls in one set ... 50X

    The 2nd round makes it an overall pretty challenging workout. Good to hear that its similar to PT.

    For some reason the shoulder presses kill me !
