The workout is the Physical Abilities Requirement Evaluation (PARE). This is a test used to assess an RCMP recruits level of fitness. Rob is getting tested on Thursday, so let’s give him a pre-test.

There may be a special “treat” at the end…

  1. The PARE?? Well, I didn’t do it the first time and won’t be doin’ it today either. It’s a Power Clean day for this girl!!!

  2. Pierre – “No cookies for you! Come back one year!” Sounds like the “treat” might be a generous portion of Tire flips, or another equally sour treat… 8)

  3. Hold on… Heather has a recipe for the best chocolate chip cookies and she hasn’t shared them with us yet???
    What’s up with that???

    Pierre – Sobeys’ bakery has the best chocolate chip cookies. I’m talking about the big ones that you buy individually for 68cents. DELICIOUS!

  4. Andy- That’s awesome!!

    Kevin-I knew that wasn’t food….but I was hoping!! πŸ™‚

  5. Andy – Man, that’s great!! Keep up the good work! You are doing awesome at the gym!

  6. Warm-Up:
    3 Rounds of:
    400m Run
    5 Jumping MUs (rings raised 1″ from default height)

    Power Clean (10)-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-(5)-(5) reps

  7. Did the RCMP P.A.R.E. test tonight. Finished it in 2:27 (I can make it in SWAT!). Also did an 800m run with a 14# med ball in 3:52 (over a minute longer than my PR)

    Awesome work on the PARE everyone! Everyone got below the 4:45 limit!

    Power cleans (7×1)

    195 (fail)
    195 (PR!)

    I just had to get angry to make that last lift.

  8. hill intervals on the bike
    1.9km climb x 5 on the homestead
    5:31 – 5:38 – 5:38 – 6:10 (dying) – 6:11 (dead)
    ride to and from hills – all told 2 hour ride and 49kms. felt good to be on the bike again!

  9. PARE RCMP work out


    800m run with a 20lb friend = 4.37

    the “treat” next time- cookies! Good work out tonight – thanks everyone.

    BTW, who is this Sean guy that posts here? 8)

    Great article. I also believe. Pierre, Sobey’s can’t compare to homemade. Ask Kevin. He used to eat my cookies. Sometimes he still does.

  11. PARE test—> 2:52 (PR by 26s)

    800m run with 20# med ball…that sucked —> 4:22

    Power clean—>1-1-1-1-1-1-1
