What if I have less then 7 weeks before I start the Academy?
Still start at the beginning of this training plan anyway. Don’t skip ahead.
What if I have more than 7 weeks before the Academy?
Email firstname.lastname@example.org with the time you have and we will advise.
What if I can’t handle the training volume at first?
Building stamina and resilience is a key training goal of this plan, and physical and mental stamina is also key to completing the Academy. If you can’t handle the training volume at first, it’s better to cut training sessions short, rather than take unscheduled rest days.
What if I can’t make the prescribed reps for the bodyweight exercises, or the prescribed interval times for runs or Prone to Sprint Shuttles?
Do your best, and be sure to do the total number of rounds, even if you can’t make the reps or the time. Don’t quit.
How do you count reps for Sandbag Getups, and Step ups?
Sandbag Getups – The prescribed rep count is total reps, so 50x Sandbag Getups at 60# sandbag = 50x total reps, 25x each shoulder.
How do you count reps for lunges?
5x Lunges = 5x Lunges each leg, or 10x lunges total
What if I miss a day?
Begin where you left off when you return to training. This program is progressed – each session builds upon the prior session – so don’t skip a session or skip around. Follow the training sessions in order, regardless.
