  • Hillsborough Community College - Physical Question: Continuous Reps?

    The physical test for Hillsborough Community College's (HCC) law enforcement academy is as follows:

    * 30 situps in 1 minute
    * 25 pushups in 1 minute
    * 1.5 mile run in 15:54 minutes

    Does anyone know if the situp/pushup requirement refers to continuous (no rest) reps, or may you rest in between each rep (as long as you complete the required reps within the time limit)?

      Thanks for responding Mav, but that does not answer my question. I am recovering from a serious shoulder injury, which is why I am asking.

        all the PT tests ive heard about you can rest in the up position but if you drop to the ground youre done.

        and yes, those are very easy PT requirements!

            Here's a trick... use gravity to your advantage... don't use your abs for it and do no work going down - let gravity do the work for you... only do work coming up! It will give you more stamina and endurance throughout! Good luck, buddy!!

              You can rest in the up position as someone above stated.

                You need to do them in the time frame. There may be a set way for you to rest, like in the up position. they also may have a specific form of exercise you will have to do.

                  Thanks for the replies guys/girls. I used to be a personal trainer, so these fitness requirements would be very easy if I were 100% healthy. However, I am recovering from a rotator cuff injury, which makes pushups a pain to do until I fully recover. I will utilize everyone's suggestions... thanks again.

                    I am currently enrolled in the HCC Academy. You are referring to the cooper's test? During our first couple days in the academy, we had to do a coopers test-in. It's just to see what type of shape you are in. Then you have a cooper's test-out. Which i was told there is no set requirement. But i will check tomorrow. Like previously stated.... all that should be easy.

                    I go nights and we have PT every Monday and Wednesday for a total of ten months. So by the cooper test-out we all as one should be able to over exceed our test-in results. Who ever thought a 20 min workout could be that hard. Well let me just say, dont under estimate it.

                    But that should be the least of your worries. If i had any recommendations, STUDY!!! Especially legal. Just passed it yesterday and was nothing what i thought it was.

                    If you any questions i will try to respond when possible.

                    Good Luck!!!

                      Thanks for the info buddy! I have a question regarding the PAT to get into the academy: Are you allowed to fold your arms across your chest when doing situps or do you have to do the Cooper's Test format (hands clasped behind your head)?

                      I am also applying to the part-time academy. Can you PM me your email or instant message screen name? Thank you.

                        97 Civic, they changed the intro requirements for upcoming classes. They have instituted PAT requirements.

                        I'm in the day class at HCC. I came to one of your PT sessions a month or so ago.

                        I am the Law, you have to keep them behind your head.

                            When doing situps for the PAT, what's the general rule on how far to come up? I have heard that in the "up" position, your elbows must touch your knees (assuming you have your hands behind your head). Does this sound correct?
