    yea JK is right, it depends what orientation your referring too. If I remember correctly, the one at Randall's Island is more dressy, I wore khakis and a button down.

    You guys should take your class discussion private.

    Guys in now haven't even done FST/real PT sessions yet. Forget about when the cold rain and snow come through. They don't cancel PT...

    Be careful what you post here, your intent may be good but one wrong word can cause a world of problems.

    On this job you will frequently hear a saying "what you see here, what you hear here and what you do here, stays here."

    So in looking through the class list I found a guy who was in my class and the last class. God only knows what his deal is that he's doing this for the 3rd time. Unbelievable.

    Also Lt Pete is Lt Critsimilios to you, don't forget that.

    That makes sense. They'll probably schedule our medicals after the intake interview. Thanks man.

    I keep it simple. I call him Sir...

    But yeah, just to reiterate what a lot of these guys on here said, you NEED to train. It now finally makes sense why MM and FFwnt2b were so quiet about what goes on at the rock. You will find out soon enough. Put in the work NOW, don't be that guy who's making us hold our plank because you can't keep your knees off the floor.

    Back to the books! Enjoy the game this Sunday fellas, I'll be in bed for kick off.

    I understand that some parts of the rock need to be experienced to understand and a want to keep something secret so people can experience it first hand. But as far as pt goes where should we be focusing our training ?

    Running, Insanity, lots of high rep low weight stuff to improve cardio and muscular endurance. Crossfit can be good, though they focus too much on olympic lifting and acrobatic **** you don't need.

    Insanity is really good. HIIT or circuit stuff also very good.

    Consecutive workouts with NO rest is the key.

    And make sure you run after your workouts to simulate PT in the academy. We run after every workout.

    Just like MM said, focus on running and a lot of it. Going to the gym and lifting a sh*t ton of weight won't really help you. Focus on calisthenics, pushups, burpees, squats, lunges. For pushups do them slow, like 1 second down 2 seconds up. Basically a lot of circuit training.

    So sick of this damn weather. I decided to not attend the CPAT orientation in LIC because I missed the first one due to work and intended on going today but my daughter is home sick and I can't exactly bring her in the $#!^ storm. What's the process for signing the waiver that says we opted to not attend the CPAT orientation?
    On another note, I'm really praying I'm in July's class. Much rather sweat my ba!!$ off than deal with this nonsense.

    Question : 1. Approximately how long from when you receive your packet, and Assuming everything goes smooth does it take to get the run letter?

    2. Also the time frame from packet – CPAT test....from looking back it looks like the overall process is a year, and a few months from packet to CPAT

    Thanks

    Looks pretty solid! Especially for a home-type work out when there's a snow storm outside lol. I would replace crunches with sit-ups (if you can do them) since doing 30 sit-ups is something you'll need to do after the 1.5 mile run. Just a suggestion.

    Check out my sig. I put dates there for questions like this. By the time I should expect a run letter, it would be June or July. Yes it's a long time but I don't see why they couldn't completely process someone in 6 months, more or less.

    Oh yea it's sit-ups I'm doing. I dunno why I put crunches.

    But yea I can't afford a gym membership so everything is at home and body weight. Got a set of those bowflex dumbbells, wall mount pull up bar with gymnastic rings and I can do it all.

    You may need to toughen up a bit. What happens when you actually have to work in winter weather?
