    Darman I've never had that problem, but we do have some folks who wear wrist braces in my squadron because of something similar. Sorry vode for not keeping this thread up to date, Ops tempo the last few months has been crazy! I go tomorrow to get my wisdom teeth out and I'll be on profile for a week or so. When I'm cleared to PT again I'll start working on this thread, again. lol

    good idea! I find that doing sets of 15 (pushups or situps) during commerical breaks actually helps out a lot during the pre PFT spin up.

    I wish I could work out right now... just got the wisdom teeth removed, I'm on profile until monday, no PT and no lifting in excess of like 5 lbs or something like that... it's annoying. I can't even use my grip masters. I really want to go for a run right now...

    Man, that sucks! It helps doin that stuff durin the commercials, cause instead of your body bein inactive for awhile, u get liitle bursts of activity. Bacck to the fitness test...i recently borrowed some perfect push-ups, and was able to 21 in one minute...dont know if thats good, but remeber how perfect-pushups work, you turn your arms as you go up and down, plus i make sure my arms are at 90 degree angles... but for some reason, my wrist dont kill me on those, maybe b/c it forces my wrists to stay straight. maybe i'll just do regular push-ups whil holdin them...

    lol I hear good things about perfect pushup... 33 is a min pass score on the original AFPFT, however on the new test I think it's 40.

    It does help! so if i did 21 on the AFPFT i would fail right? oh well... i know this goes off topic but what do u do in the air force kal'ika? BTW i looked into wrist braces, and they seem to be for sprained wrists, at least the ones i've seen. Is that what you were talkin about, cause i haven't fallen on my wrist recently. and what are flutter kicks?

    umm... not sure what kind of braces they are actually, I just know they wrap around the wrists. Flutterkicks are a 4 count exercise, where you lie flat on your back, elevate your shoulders off the floor and your feet 6 inches from the ground. Then, you kick, while keeping your legs straight. four count exercise therefore 4 counts equals 1 repetition. As for the job... I'm aircrew. As for pass/fail, you would technically fail, but... the way it works now you'd go on a special fitness program and retest in 6 months at your normal test time.

    I train in mixed martial arts. A school called "The Pit". Its a smaller, satellite school of the large MMA school in Las Vegas, ran by John Hackleman.

    Tonights cardio workout was:
    20 pushups
    20 burpees
    20 box jumps
    20 squats
    50 straight punches

    5 rounds of that 3 minutes a round. No breaks. (We have a belt testing this weekend and in order to pass the first phase of the testing, you have to be able to compete three rounds at three minutes apiece. I completed it tonight, but still wish me luck this weekend.)

    Followed by 3 sets of 8 counts (10 per set)

    then an hour of mixed martial arts training and an hour of brazilian jiujitsu class.

    Those last two hours are pretty easy actually, plenty of water and towel breaks during those.

    Hopefully, after a few more months of this, I'll be looking much more "mando". lol.
