      Max the reps in under 60 seconds and you get 3 min plus the remainder. As Cur said, you follow along with a recording. You're going to do well.

      • You know, I forgot to mention that when I said I did 50 pushups, I did them in 50 seconds and I decided that was enough and quit. The lady said she had to write that I did 50 pushups and stopped at 50 seconds.

        You think I'll be disqualified for that?

          No you won't be disqualified. The rules didn't say you had to finish the 60 seconds. I don't think she had to write down that you stopped though

          • Ok, thanks, josh.

            I really hope my process doesn't get delayed due to me needing glasses. I'm hoping if its anything like the USSS process I'll need to get them before an EOD.

              Most likely what is going to happen is that they place you on medical review. Your going to have to go to your local doctor and have your eyes check out. Once you receive your results your going to have to send it in to the medical review bored for approval.
              Don't stress it to much a lot of these medical facilities don't do proper exams. They have interns or new personal doing the test and they don't know what they are doing half the time. I personal got stuck with an intern who said I was blind and had heart problems. I laugh at him and told him he was wrong. I got approved by the doctor to finish my exam and PFT1 and pass all but those two areas.

              I received the letter in the mail stating I was on review because of my eyes and heart. I took the paperwork to my doctor who looked at it and laugh also. The reason why I say we both laugh is because I'm physically fit go to the gym on a daily bases. I run for over a hour a day on the machines and I eat very healthy. My cholesterol is low my doctor make fun at me about it.
              I sent the paper work to medical review with blood work included and also had my eyes checked the same week. All in all it delayed my process about 1 month or so but medical review gave me the thumbs up to continue.

              • I don't have a doctor. Will going to vision works, WalMart, sears, or any of those stores suffice?

                  • That's great.

                    I may just go and pay the $50-$60 it costs to get an eye exam. Worst comes to worst, my vision is 20/20 uncorrected and I lose that money.

                    EDIT-Or maybe I should just wait. Either way, I still have wait to hear back on the EKG deal. That's gonna slow me down, too.

                        Wear workout attire. Take your water mad wrist straps or knee braces if you need it. Also, if you wanna shave your chest for the EKG, it'll be wise. I didn't and it was a biotch to pull the leads off. Good luck, you'll be fine if you're in moderate condition.

                        • Well yesterday I had my poly, unfortunately I didn't pass. There was 1 question that kept holding me up, I laid everything out there and told the gentleman all I had to feel guilty about. He made a phone call to the reviewers of the test and they said I may be able to take another one in the near future. If he had administered another test yesterday, I most certainly would have failed again. If I don't get another opportunity, I guess I can feel good with myself that I told the truth about everything and spilled my beans, but disappointed at the same time. I know people hate this test and how much weight it carries, but it's their policy, so we have to live with the results of it.

                            Sorry to hear about your Poly results. All you can do is what it sounds like you did. Even if CBP doesn't work out for you, it looks like you have quite a few other "eggs" in your basket as other options too. Best of luck!

                            • Not gonna be excited to take the poly again I make it that far. The USSS poly was brutal, even though I was truthful. To this day I'm not sure whether I passed or not. All I received in the mail was the 'BQA moving on' letter.

                              I'm curious how different the two are.
