Training While on Probation

Doing Beyond 5/3/1 Phase 1.
My training now (off season); can it continue during a probation period during firefighter training? (on season)

Are you concerned about time issues, recovery issues; what exactly? That will help us give some feedback. Thanks

Why can’t you? Are you concerned about injury that would wash you out? I am a Public Safety officer (both police and fire). Never had any issues with training on the fire side. Had to cut down my volume a bit on the police side. I thought the fire academy was much less physically demanding then the police academy.

If it is intensive, then you’ll need to just simply structure your personal training around your work. When you get on a normal shift you can go back to whatever it is you want to do.
