passed it. Had a little trouble with the sled because I was not using the right technique. They didn't have a strap and you were pulling with a hose over your shoulder..35x6 lbs. The key is to pinch the hose and hold it at your shoulder, get low and small steps...and don't stop!

I've done mine before, first was max V02, 10 minute break then stairs with 4lb ankle weights, 32lb vest, and 85 pounds hose, it was up 5 stories (108 stairs) then back down once, they would not tell me my time, first time I did it I was too slow, the second time I was too fast. Anyone know the exact time you need to pass? I used a bundle of shingles for training to simulate the hose weight.
