    Currently in the pre-employment process for the US Customs and Border Patrol. I've been at the for a while now and just looking for something more specific to the job. Any direction is greatly appreciated. Just looking for some advice from you guys/gals already in an LEO position.
    I realize I need to move more towards a functional routine and thats what I am looking for. I have been doing mostly heavier weights and some runnings/cardio every day.

    Too much money, if you wanted to go that route, functional fitness. I was in better shape while I was working at a quarry, then any academy I ever went through. Just my .02

    You can do crossfit without spending alot of money. Get the work out of the day off the site and buy a door jam mounted pull up bar. You can do alot!

    When I was a LEO, my biggest challenge was never strength (always been natural big and strong), it was endurance... being able to outrun and outlast the other guy. So to build that up, I did a graduated running program which called for jogging/sprinting/walking in accelerated intervals. In 3-4 months, I could hang in there with anyone. I would also consider using a step machine and doing the same type of thing. I'm no fitness expert, but it worked for me. Good luck!

I also hold some 40 lb dumbbells and do the box drill that is on the fitness test. I passed my OB in atlanta a month or 2 ago and am waiting on my pt1. Go to honorfirst.com if you havnt yet.

    My workouts consist of supersets and circuit training. I do 4 circuits each circuit contains a weighted exercise, body weight exercise, plyometric movement. My workout is a total body workout meaning i will train all larger and some smaller muscles that day, rest next day then come back on 3rd day. I take 1 minute rest in between each set so for example legs would be 10 weighted squats, 10 walking lunges with dumbells, 10 hamstring curls on boso ball and 10 jump squats, wait 1 minute then begin again. I train this way 3 days a week. In between these days I focus more on cardio, running swimming, or for me BJJ is the best workout and conditioning exercise out there.

    Are you applying to both U.S. Customs (Customs and Border Protection Officer) and Border Patrol because for starters they are two VERY different jobs and secondly if you attend the CBPO academy, it is very lax on physical standards. Border Patrol on the other hand is tested mainly on a mile and a half run, 200 yard dash, and a confidence (obstacle) course.
