  • day of Physical test?

    I have my poilice physical in 1 week. It is at 8am im planning on waking up at 6am so I am not so tired by 8. I was wondering how i should prepare and if I should eat anything before I go? Its 3 stations, 1st 38 situps in 1 minute 2nd 29 pushups in 1 minute and last is a 1.5 mile run under 12:30 seconds. I was planning on eating a small amount of egg whites and maybe some vitamin water. I was wondering what everyone else thinks. thanks

    I would eat something light, throw some carbs in there though.

    I would eat a wheat/grain english muffin with your eggs, it will do wonders for your energy.

      yea thats what i was thinking i guess it would also help if i practiced one morning waking up eating that then test myself as if it was the day of the test and see how it feels... well i got 1 week to find out

        When i was in the Marines I would eat a spoon of peanutbutter before a PFT its not heavy in your sotmach and will give you good energy.(and myself I didnt like running with food in me)

            time yourself say on monday to see how many you can do in a minute. then again everyday after that...it will strengthen you upper body so your use to the pushups.

                eating pasta and carbs a night or two before will def help with the cardio aspect

                i also agree with AGroves about the peanut butter. i read in a fitness mag how it gives you a good amount of energy.

                good luck

                  What I like to do is plan way ahead in advance for stuff like this. What works for some people may not work for you.

                  To give you my two cents, it doesn't sound like a heavy-duty barf-a-thon-ish test. Carbo loading isn't really necessary. Don't drink alcohol the night before or the morning of the test or during the test. Eat something light and drink plenty of water the day before. Good luck for whatever it is worth.

                    Yeah, you're pretty much down to the wire, I would actually not do much pushups if any between now and test time. Give your pushup muscles a rest, and max them out test day. Don't go into the test sore and beat up.

                      yea i think tomorrow will be my last heavy pushup day then rest the week ill just do situps and running even though im set on it... im just worried about my pushups... i guess it also helps when you dont have to count as you do them lol that probably distracts you a bit as you do them... hopefully on test day you get that feeling of this it this is when it counts and you end up being able to do more then what you did on your on so im hoping for that... thats for the help i just wanna pass trying to have the highest score isnt on my mibd right now
