well I took my test for the police academy yesterday.. and man am I sore.. my legs have not hurt like this in years... it was pretty rough.. mainly due to the heat.. plus the water they provided was too cold cold water into a hot body in that kind of heat can make one sick.. here is the break down of the test...
It started with a skills assesment portion which consisted of a 200 yard run. 100 one way then back.. then you had to do 5 proper pushup, then drag a fully charged fire hose 50 yards.. then drag a 150 pound dummy 25 yard with out the head touching the ground... then a 50 pound bucket 25 yards.
you had max 7 minutes to do that event..

after that we did a flexibility test. then sit ups, 1 minutes max, then benchpress to max weight.. after that a mile and a half run.. that was the brutal part.. I am not a runner.. but I finished and not last either.. I know I am ahead of 3 people.. but that leaves 3 I am not sure of.. since I do not know what they put on the test..

there were 7 testing 1 female, 3 I know I beat out right that leaves 3 unknowns.. and there is only like 2-3 positions open so it will be close I'll keep you posated though
