This is the CPAT test in Abbotsford to get into JIBC Firefighting school.
I exercise regularly 6 times a week, 1 day rest. Smoked for 10 years and clean for 1 year. I am currently doing interval trainings having the least breaks as possible. The very first time I did the interval training - it took 1 hour. Now my best time is 15 minutes, and average of 15-20 minutes.
I did the CPAT Orientation today and tested all the parts out and it was easy....until I put on the 70lb pound vest for the stairs and 50lb for the rest. After the stair climb my legs felt like jello and my breath was hard to catch because I was both tired and I have 50 pounds on my chest thats trying to expand for breath.
I planned to go to JIBC in 2011 but was too late to apply, so my body went back to normal when I was going to academic college and now I applied to JIBC for May again. I applied in January and was getting ready for the CPAT date. JIBC calls me 1 week after and says my CPAT test is in mid Feb. So really, I only will have 1.5 months to get ready.
Shit is hitting the fan - I am going to buy a weighted vest. I am not trying to get muscles or the look - I really dont care about that. My main goal is to pass the test.
Would it be ok for me to work out 3 times a day? or 2? Will this be overtraining and cause more harm than good?
