  • State Police Academy Preparation

    Ok, I just passed my pre-employment physical for a state police agency in New England. It was the final step and from my understanding with this dept, if you make it this far, you get an offer. Believe me.. when/if it becomes "official", I will post it.. but.. until then, I need to start preparing now. The SP do a 3 week "pre- basic" which is VERY tough. Then on to the 16 week basic, then a 3 week post basic. I know a Trooper who recently graduated and told me former Marines told him it was MUCH worse than boot camp. I am an avid weightlifting, and i run maybe twice a week... I need to increase my stamina for long distance running. Are there any workouts/ cardio routines out there that are aimed at helping prepare someone for the academy? I understand that they have runs in excess of 8 miles at a time. I have a few months and I want to start training NOW! Any suggestions?

        Here's a link to a previous discussion on Crossfit: http://forums.officer.com/forums/sho...light=crossfit

        EMcNeice, take a look through some of the old threads in the Health and Fitness section - there's been a lot of discussion re: improving running ability, and there's also many good links attached to the threads that leads to other running sites (runners world etc.).
