Hey guys, so I got my first week of rookie school out of the way with the city fire department.
I would like to hear if anyone here has any experience with this training and maintaining their own strength.
Here is the deal, my schedule for the next four weeks is doing EMT from 0800-1800, Monday-Friday. So we are craming all of the medical certs for EMT in four weeks, having a test every day, and having to maintain 80% or better on all tests in order to pass.
Obviously my focus right now is EMT. So studying, being on time, and passing the academics is my primary goal. However, due to so much book work, we won't start PT till the end of this four week block...
So, at best I can train 2 days per week outside of the school, like Wed. and Saturday. Just wondering what any of you guys/gals would recommend would be the best way to attack this. 5/3/1 2 days per week? I would like to hear anyones opinion.
I met the PT instructors the other day and they seem very cool and told us they plan on doing a lot of functional stuff like sprints, stadium climbs, tire flipping, wood chopping, all in full gear-- so I'm stoked about that, but I got 4 weeks till the fun begins. Just looking for some good ways to maintain my strength and muscularity till then. As a class, we do push-ups and bodyweight squats before every break-- but that only goes so far.
