    Link below is to a suggested 10 week training program developed by the VMI PE Department to help you get ready for the VFT(Pullups; Situps;1-1/2 run). This is found on the VMI web site but is buried in the New Cadet section of the site. - if you are heading to VMI and you aren't following a regular PT program- this is a good one to consider - and it's a good time to start! :thumb:

    FYI:

    However, keep in mind that you will be required to do a great deal more than just the VFT - in particular- during the Rat line your abiity to run 3-5 miles, road march and do pushups (lots of pushups) will be fairly common occurances:eek: Bottom line- whether you are a pt animal or not- the Ratline will be stressful- but it will be a lot more stressful and painful if you are going into the Rat year in poor physical condition.
