BMQ easy style?

Recently, i was approved for Infantry status to begin training in a high school Co-Op program based at the Cambridge Armoury for the Royal Highland Fusiliers of Canada. This program, to the best of my knowledge is the BMQ, Phys-Ed, and Military Tactics training. However, it is only 4 days a week and every other weekend, and starts at 12, ending around 7-8 at night. How wildly different is this than the BMQ we all know and "love"? In addition, just how jacked does one have to be? I have really let myself go after i qualified for it by passing my Physical Test. Any help would be much appreciated.

Sounds quite a bit different from BMQ as far as the schedule goes, usually 12-14 weeks (first 4 CB'd) the rest are 5 day weeks starting at 0500 going to 2300.

Not to mention that if you're going infantry you WILL want to be in good shape.

I can't offer any advice about your PT situation but i will say this: There is a consequence to every decision.

Good luck.

You get to go home at night, that's about it. You're still gonna get yelled at, you will still have inspections and still have PT sessions.

Sounds like a plan. I'm not worried about how hard its going to be. I'm worried ill get gut like this is some Tryout. Will they drop me for being outta shape or let me kill myself getting up to standards?

Its is a "tryout".

Yes, you will be booted if you fail to meet all standards. This isn't public school.

Screw the bowflex. Go for a run get your cardio back in shape and the rest will follow.

Speaking from the perspective of someone who has a very good cardiovascular endurance (long distance running) but trouble building upper-body strength, doing sufficient push-ups, sit-ups, and whatever strength based PT is usually expected at BMQ will not necessarily follow. OP may wish to investigate a balanced work-out routine.
