Hello,

I'm non prior-service looking to go 18x with 19th Group. I'm looking to rebuild my training program to make it happen. Should I focus on maximizing my score on the APFT, ACFT, or the PFA? Should I do a Selection-specific training program this early in the game or wait?

Here is my current program
  • Run 4-5 days a week (Currently doing a 5 mile run improvement plan since the PFA calls for a 5 mile run)
  • Strong Lifts 5x5 weight lifting program 3 days a week
  • Pushups/Situps/Pull ups 3 days a week
  • 1 active recovery day where I hike or ride bikes.
There are so many programs out there for SFAS preparation. Has anyone successfully used any of these or have any general input?
  • MTI's Ruck-based Selection Program
  • Soflete's Selection Team
  • THOR3 SFAS Training Program
  • SFAS Physical Training Handbook (appears to have replaced THOR3 as the official program?)
Thank you all
