  • NIPSTA Power Test

    Hey, everyone. I'm taking the Power Test for the first time at NIPSTA in a few weeks. Anybody have any tips or advice, other than to just keep training? Thanks!

    Get there early. The sessions are always packed. Plan to be there a handful of hours. The order goes sit-and-reach, sit ups, bench machine, and the run. Some people have issues with the bench machine there. I don't see how and never had any problems. The run sucks though because it is in the back, wide open area (full effect from wind), all concrete (no actual track) and I believe it is 14 laps? Bring water and maybe a snack.

      Run to the front of the line after they give instructions so you're outta there ASAP.

        Also, what do you think is the best thing to eat before the test?

            Not anything too heavy of course, maybe a breakfast sandwich! But be sure hydrate yourself before and not the day of its a key to success!

                Small bowl of cereal and a banana should be good.

                      Usually a large Palermo's sausage and pepperoni pizza, wash it down with a 40 of Old Style.

                        So much of what he said! I've taken it twice there now and you only make this mistake once. It's like black Friday and NIPSTA is giving out free TVs

                          Okay, so I guess I'll just blindly go stand by the garage, since nobody wants to tell me why...

                          Also, is the machine bench seated upright or on your back?

                            Bench is laying on your back. And you'll want to be standing by the garage door so that you can be one of the first people for the run. If you're not near the door then have fun waiting around for a very loong time, to do the run.

                              Have you ever ran before to prepare for the test??
                              Eat the same thing as you did then. 10-4?
