Anyone here struggling with the Beep test?

Postby mrtinfoilman » Sat Jun 29, 2019 4:34 pm

MY ATS is coming up (6 weeks), I'm not worried about the testing component but the physical part is haunting me every night. I passed the Pursuit/Restraint Circuit, but during the practice session I did Stage 4 and cried inside lol. Within 2 weeks, I improved to Stage 6 (just tested again), measured out 65 ft in the park with two cones. I'm barely reaching Stage 7. Just wondering how you guys are improving or trying to improve. I recently hit the treadmill with a 2% incline to get my muscles use to the running/jogging motion at a 3.5/4 speed for 30 minutes everyday. I've heard jogging with weights or running upstairs or uphills helps prior to the week of the test.

Thanks

Hey,

So I am just starting to train for PREP, once upon a time I was in shape; but then came delicious donuts, coffee, ice-cream and chocolate bars.

Without training right now I could normally reach 5.5 on prep; however my goal is to get 8.0.
I went and did exercises 4 times this week to start and I was doing 8 - 9 percent incline at speed 4.0 for 60 minutes. My four month goal is 9 percent incline at 5.0 for thirty minutes straight with staggered five minutes bursts at 7.0 at 9 percent incline. I'd rather prefer the hills versus straight out running hard on my knees and feet.

So you've got the right idea, just up your incline and speed's gradually.
