    50 jumping jacks
    30 pushups
    30 burpees
    30 mountain climbers
    30 pushups

    Thanks in advance.
    It can't easily be summed up like that, and even if it could I wouldn't. Often times the hard part is that even if you have an easy PT day the class before and the class after may be *** kickers. It's often an all day endurance event.

    I don't mean to slight anyone who has asked about how hard the PT days are, but does it really matter? If it's just out of general curiosity, that I can understand. If you are however trying to curtail your workout to be able to accomplish whatever someone may respond with, it's as if you're striving for mediocrity. I say this because, other than some military veterans, this will be undoubtedly the most physically difficult and demanding part of our civilian lives. Period. We should be training as hard and as intense as we possibly can, everyday, no matter what. If we're not, we're doing a disservice to more people than just ourselves.

    Agree, just train your asses off. If you are in shape, you will adjust to the workouts and training. If you are not, you will either get in shape quickly or quit. Trust me, I was no triathlete, but I made it cause I came in the best shape of my life. You guys got more than enough info on the PT sessions.

    Replaces the 30 with 100 and 50 with 200. Then add a 3-4 mile run.

    Someone OTJ said that should kind of prepare you somewhat lol. Everyday is a new day. Just be fit.

    So it looks like it's a NYS law that gives them credit, but I don't see it mention being a NYS resident... He'd be better off calling MetroTech.
    Thanks for posting this.

    Most of us just wanna know what pt entails so we can not be the guy that completely fails our squad at push-up number 48 or 98. Or pull-up number 19.

    No one wants to be embarrassed if we only knew. That said, it's completely unacceptable to say 'hey 50 push-ups is the standard, 40 burpees is the standard, don't ask me to do more than that'

    Don't do the minimum. Shane said those are called square rooters

    19 pull ups is a lot.
