Maybe ask them what type of workout regimen they recommend, I do PT Monday, Wednesday, Friday. Not gonna lie its pretty relaxed, plan to start hitting the gym soon. I been focusing most of my free time on studying for this "Warrior of the Month Board" and promotion board that I have coming up.
I wouldn't get too deep in the weeds on the OJT. The problem with that is misinformation. It's almost best to attend EOD school with a blank slate. The things they teach you there are mostly relevent to the school house only. What you want to avoid is learning how things are done in the real world and try to apply them to the fantasy land which EOD school is. If you get there and they tell you the sky is green, then for you the sky is green while there. You will run in to this a lot if your mind is filled with actually real world items from your OJT.
The school is designed to mimic drinking water from a firehose. It's a lot of information thrown at you and you need to be able to spit it back out. You know what it's like playing the military game, it's just like that with a few more rules.
As far as PT goes, I have no idea what the Army is doing. I am sure it isn't relaxed so take this time to step up the game. Good luck man, If you have specific questions I will call over to the school house and ask.
