Happy Labor Day, but in our Selection preparation, a good rule to follow is “No Days Off”, Okay, I’m stealing that from my favorite NFL coach but it is apt.
Some good pretest work for the Upper Body Round Robin (UBRR) with many of the exercises that will be tested. Always go for perfect form when doing the pushups, it will be an area that is always looked at hard during the PT tests in Selection. After the exercises, a three-mile run as fast as you can. Mark the time in your workout log book.
