Did I waste my money?

Postby EncryptoID » Wed Jun 05, 2019 12:03 pm

I would ask you guys for an honest answer but you guys give the brutal hardcore honest answers anyway. lol

What do you think about the Athlean X Special-Tactix program? He says he will train you to get ready for any police or military test.
The program is mostly running and weights.

I have the FORCE test next Friday for the reserves and all i've been doing is the beep test(level 12),
dragging 45 lbs plates, and 20 lb medicine ball slams on the wall. Since caffeine is not allowed, I've stopped taking pre workout for a month.

dunno man. All I can say is keep things simple. I filled two homedepot buckets with top soil and bench press it.

Nope, he is actually pretty educated in exercise science and has been a therapist for multiple athletes and sports teams

No, I have only seen the videos and have asked the recruiter about it. I am just practicing based on that, hopefully it will be helpful

The CAF force test is the biggest joke there is, people who ran a 4 on the beep test pass the force test, you'll be fine.

I'm sorry, did you intentionally write the number four or by accident?

At second thought, if its Army recruitment then I understand why they would lower the fitness requirement.
