In this video, Russ stresses about the importance of building on your fitness and ensuring that you create a buffer zone between the scores you have to achieve to pass as an applicant and those scores that you can actually achieve when you are doing this test.

According to Russ, you will need this buffer zone for when you get into the academy because the workload is horrendous and the buffer zone you create very quickly disappears.

Furthermore, according to Russ, it’s just unfortunate that some people bust their butt just to get to the minimum score as an applicant and pass. Then they go to the academy with very little to spare.

Apart from the buffer zone needed to be able to cope with work in the academy, Russ also discussed why the beep test is unique. Please feel free to watch the video as to why he said the beep test is unique.
