The Obstacle Course (PREP):
In order to become a police officer in Ontario, you must run an obstacle course in 2mins 42secs.
There are 4 laps. You must run up and down a set of stairs.
On the second and fourth lap, you must jump over a 4 foot fence (I think the one in the picture is a bit higher).
Then you have to push a 32kg/70lb weight around in a semi-circle 6 times.
Next, is an Arm Restraint Simulator. You grip handles and pull them together. It needs a force of 14.5kg/32lbs
Then, you pull 32kg/70lb weight around in a semi-circle 6 times.
Then you do the Arm Restraint Simulator again.
Finally, you drag a 150lb dummy 15 m/50ft.
You must do all this whilst carrying a 9lb weight around your hips.
Shuttle Run (PREP):
After the obstacle course, you need to run up and down a 20m layout. There is a timed beep. You must reach to the end of the 20m before the beep. If you fail to do this twice, you are disqualified. The time between the beeps get progressively shorter until you reach level 6.5.
Right now, I think I would be able to do the obstacle course in 4mins (maybe). I tried to drag my younger brother - he weighs 158lbs, but it was hard! It's a lot harder than it looks!
I can't complete the shuttle run yet. I think I'm going to start doing 50m sprints everyday to increase my anaerobic fitness (short, fast bursts of exercises).
