    Besides practicing the test itself, are there any other recommendations on how to prepare for the CFA and all the physical activity as a whole at SLE?

    Make sure you do your pull ups with quality form and at a cadence. While there the cadre will tell you when to go up and down and trust me, they aren't generous. Be used to running in cool morning weather because you'll be taking the CFA at 0700 on an empty stomach.

    Don't wear a Navy T-shirt when you arrive.

    Make sure that the morning of the CFA at SLE to NOT eat a big breakfast. Keep it light.

    And always drink a lot of water. Hydration is key. If today's weather on the East Coast is any indication, the weather during SLE will be hot and humid.

    Sir, all of my friends that attended SLE last year told me that took the CFA after breakfast. Most of them threw up because they ate too much.

    It depended on your platoon. Some went to different events that morning. My DS's platoon had their CFA after breakfast, and there was a whole bunch of puking.

    Don't drink a lot of water before or especially during the CFA that caused a lot of kids to throw up when I went last year
