Were are you fitness wise? Do you have the minimum to make it in the CF?

Hi!

So walking out of the office today, I runned into a CF recruting bin and got a copy of this:

http://cdn.forces.ca/_PDF2010/physical_fitness_en.pdf

Now, with this in mind and a lot of skirmish vs MilSim talk I m sure we all had, assuming a MilSim player had proper physical shape for a MilSim game (heavy load, long hard walk, quick sprint, endurance, etc), I m curious to see:

Were are you fitness wise, do you meet the basic CF Fitness Standard for your age (which I would assume would be a minimum to tackle MilSim game)?

I meet all of these "acceptable levels", except hand grip which I have absolutely no idea what I do.

I actually printed that and I'm training to reach at least 10% better than each one of these, as I'm currently in the process of joining the reserves. I do the 2.4km run in about 11min but I'm also working on reaching no more than 10min.

Yes, I meed the standard. It's really not that hard to meet the Army's minimum standard. Start of BMQ, i was fucked up, not remotely prepared. Fixed that for SQ.

It's very easy to get in shape to the level specified in that link

You'll probably be doing the BFT for the fitness test more often than you will a run, also keep in mind the coopers test isn't a straight run. Practice pivoting if you've never done a coopers test.

Lets just say I'm more of an "explosive" type athlete, built for short spurts of extreme output rather than long distances.

I don't see where it's written how many pushups they want
I hate pushups
I like chin ups
climbing stuff is funny
running is awful but I could do it...but I would hate it
I can lift heavy stuff, like a baby with a dirty diaper
I could probably reload a mag with one hand while holding a baby with the other arm, while it's attacking me

I'll keep that in mind, thanks!

Though I assume that running will still be common during the course... like ruck marches or group PT?

Mentaly, Me and Sports/fitness in general have a love/hate relationship, with a lot of hating going on.
Physicaly, I'm not fat but I could use a lost of weight.

Cardio wise, I'm way below standard.

Cardio is huge, so make sure you're up to run about 5-6 km or at least 45 minutes of running, whatever the distance. Chances are that that'll be a third of the PT you'll do on courses. You'll be fine though Conker.

I'm fat, and I wouldn't qualify at at all, I didn't even have to look. I'm working on fixing that but then again thats why I get paid a lot to play with other peoples money all day.

So do I milsim? Hell yeah! Can I last the whole time. You bet. Do I go balls to the wall like a methed up speedballer for the whole day? No.

The trick with long games is like the gambling slogan... Know your limit, play with in it.

Looks like I'm underweight. Although, I think I can do everything except tread water and not too sure about the hand grip thing; 75kg for each hand seems pretty high.
