So since I am training for PFT standards and for the academy US Customs, I decided to stay away from the gym and focus on a more military PFT style preparation…
That said, this would be chinups, pushups, situps, and running.
I was wondering if this change, would any strength be lost outside of the gym? Should I go to the gym 1 day a week at least?
Reason I am not going to gym is to train for what will be expected and to build some endurance.
My gym routine currently is:
3 x 6-8 reps
I also opted out of the gym to avoid any chance for injuries even though I am confident with my form and how much to push myself.
Anyone else here have experience prepping for military/law enforcement??
I am literally on the last legs of the process and just looking more to prepare towards the academy at this point.
Just don’t want to lose any strength being away from the gym setting and also want to maintain or continue getting stronger while training (bodyweight).
