What does the test detail? There really is no magic to it.....if you want to follow a plan.....eat right...do not drink soda because the sugar content is way to high and your body will just burn sugar and not fat......if you can eliminate caffeine, do so, I noticed big differences running without the constant cup of coffee each morning. You must be disciplined, I am sure that you believe you are, but you need to set goals that are high if you want to be at your best....I noticed the best workout for the police physical tests is running....do not get discouraged if you can't jog for a 1/2 mile, I couldn't when I first started. So I sprinted each day 3-6 times a day on the beach. on the road, at the high school field. At first I would sprint about 1/10 of a mile and then walk till I felt more energy and then do it again....consistency is key, but every week go further. It took me about 2 months to be able to sprint 1/4 mile in 60 seconds without feeling like I was about to have a heart attack. Now I can jog 4-5 miles and feel good about it. Just look at the guys and gals who just graduated from the South Weymouth Academy.....10 mile run each day, god bless them....I am sure they can chime in and say run, run, run. I know a retired Trooper who told me about when he was in the academy for the state police way back when and that you had to run everywhere and when they ran they had to hold a weapon over head....not sure which one but I am sure we have some Troopers on this board that can explain.....RUN, RUN, RUN.
PS....Take it easy on the Guiness too, it doesn't help the gut. Good Luck 8)
