I don't think doing stairs with weight everyday is gonna be the difference in going over your heart rate, seems to be much more about staying calm and not have a resting HR that's too low.

    Im actually training for a possible 2nd attempt lol. With a 90% failure rate im pretty much banking on failing the heart monitor portion. But if i get lucky on the first try with only having to do 5 mins with a good heart rate then that's all good. I was just thinking like "damn", if i made such good progress with only going 2x week, then what would happen if i went 4x week? Would i be over 10 min by now or would i be dead lol.

    *Definetely planning on doing the stairs 2x week even AFTER i pass the medical. Its a great exercise.

    I try to do 2 stairs and 3 running. That's enough of a leg workout without blowing out your knees I feel.

    this is what I do as well. I'd recommend training for 10 minutes straight on the stairs. If you can do at least that, the stair part of the medical will be a breeze.

    DWN - I think at the rate theyre going I'm anticipating getting paperwork after next July's class and I'm right by your, a couple hundred below. Over 1,000 OC guys already got paperwork for this upcoming class and they still have PHs going in.

    Speaking of which, how many of those wonderful men and women are left to go in?

    According to the math that I've done, these are my projections:

    3:1 Ratio 4:1 Ratio
    Class 2-13 94 Class 2-13 94
    Class 1-14 1054 Class 1-14 1374
    Class 2-14 2014 Class 2-14 2654
    Class 1-15 2974 Class 1-15 3934
    Class 2-15 3934 Class 2-15 5214
    Class 1-16 4894 Class 1-16 6494
    Class 2-16 5854 Class 2-16 7774

    From the last I saw, they reached list #94 on the current class. I'm probably way off in these numbers, but this was a nice way to burn 10 minutes in the office. Please feel free to chime in and pick this apart, I'm bored as it is.

    Yeah, the 4:1 you have listed is probably the most accurate but i believe they even got to the low 100's on the OC list to get 17 candidates. Doubt that 5.5:1 hold up consistently though.

    I'm a little surprised we haven't heard any updated rumors recently about how many EMS and PHs there Are left for the January class.

    Anyone hear anything or have any thoughts?

    If the numbers come out to the city getting to list number 800-850 for the proposed January class - I'd be surprised. Although the number is uncertain, there will be some people from the priority and EMS promo lists and then there's those that will be recycled into January.

    Got the e-mail. Is this meeting at the Rock completely different from the LIC meeting ?

    Also I just signed up for the Saturday the 21st meeting at 12:00pm and when the confirmation page came up it said its the 21st at 6:00pm. I signed up for the Saturday at 12 because I have the LIC meeting at 8:00pm.
