Who is training for CPAT or Challenge?
What are ya'll doing to get ready? I been doing lots of bleacher and road work, and powerlifts. I figure here in about a month I'll throw in some plyo stuff and work on explosive movements, powering up the stairs, and start getting into event-specific training pretty heavy. I've been working on the stepmill event for the CPAT, which is MUCH slower than I would climb them, 60 steps a minute. Got my guitar metronome, tick tock tick tock for the rhythm. But I haven't found a stairway around here that I can step for 250-some steps without having to turn and head down...
Does anyone have a homemade vest for the CPAT? I just got a backpack with a bunch of rolled pennies, pretty bulky. I need to get like a fishing vest or something with pockets all over, so the weight is more even.
How 'bout a trainer for the ceiling breach? I read through the guide, and the way it describes the homemade version, with a handle tied to a weight, it sounds like when you thrust up with the handle, up comes the weight you know where...haven't tried it though
