    sprints!!!

    find a track and sprint the straights then light jog around corners...do this twice a week till you fall down and you will be good to go. also once a week do a long run. if you are running 3 miles 5 days a week, replace one day with sprinting and one day with like a 5 or 7 mile run.

    good luck

      Don't neglect your push-ups and sit-ups. The best way to get better at them is to just do them. Who are you applying with?

      Good luck.

        Hey G, are you class 422? Who is your class Sgt? It looks like you guys are about to graduate this month.

          Yes, we graduate this month and it can't come fast enough! Not that academy is all that bad, I'm just anxious to move onto the next phase of training.

              Alea Fitness Guide

              Here is a link to the ALEA fitness guide for folks getting ready to enter an Academy. It was helpful for me. Especially the pushup improvement section. Follow that and your good to go.

                I want to be in good shape when I get to the Academy.
                So do the sprints twice a week and once a week do a long run. The rest of the week run or jog 3 miles?
                Also should I do strenght training every other day? Every day? What would you guys suggest?

                  Depends on your class Sgt. My class Sgt loves to do a lot of push-ups and flutter kicks.

                  Honestly, you don't need to be in amazing shape to do well in the academy. Just keep what you are doing and you should be fine.

                    Easier said than done.

                    Deer Valley, Cactus, Greenway, Mountain Shadows, all closed during non school hours.


                    I do not think ASU West has a track. who else might have one? I am dying to find one.

                        If it's distance you need, just use Google Maps, type in intersections into the "driving directions" section until you get the distance you want, and run it. That's what I've been doing, and then walking back as a cool down. Works well for me, I hope it helps you out too!

                            Rich, I don't know exactly where you live, but

                            ASU Main - Tempe, you can use Sun Angel stadium
                            McClintock Highschool - Weekend public use, and evening use when not being used for the school

                            But if you've tried greenway and cactus shadows.... those are probably WAAAY out of your way. Lemme know the general area you live in, I may know some tracks

                              West side.

                              Greenway, cactus are close
                              mountain shadows is a good 2 mile run.

                              if you look at the very northwest corner of 101, that is prety much were my kid goes to preschool.
