    For my firefighter application, I had to pass the beep test (9.7). They recommended HIIT style training for it: run, jog, and walk intervals. I found it brutal because I never trained cardio in my life before the test. You could try that style of training.
    I also did steady state cardio as a supplement to HIIT. I went for a cruisey pace of 6 min/km and usually went for a 5 km distance. When it got too easy, I started wearing a bag (15 kg) to simulate wearing an oxygen tank.
    Hope this helps and good luck on your application.

    I’m currently training to become a career firefighter. Most of what I’ve read recommends doing as much cardio as possible, specifically HIIT. I’ve gotten a 60 pound weighted vest and have been hopping on a stair master regularly. I’ve also read that getting below a 10 minute mile is good too.

      I imagine doing lots of farmer walks would be beneficial

        This anon is correct. In my physical training program, farmers walks were recommended. As part of the physical aptitude test, you had to unload two bags (approx. 10 kg) from the top shelf within the fire truck and carry them for 20 m.

      Weighted vest + stair master is a very good simulation of what you'll be doing in the job. It's fricking hard climbing shitloads of stairs, wearing all the gear and then having to fight a fire afterwards.
      Good luck on your application brother!

    Start by fighting small fires with your fists, then after you've defeated a few you should fight larger ones in a circuit for prize money.

    /plg/ used to have a pastebin with a ton of PDF's on conditioning. I have a firefighter's conditioning book but I don't remember where I downloaded it from. It was super useful because it would show real world applications of each workout, like split squats translating to carrying your equipment up flights of stairs.

    Summarizing it would come down to this.
    >Endurance over everything
    >Basic stretches you could find through google
    >Farmers carry and pull ups help your grip strength for carrying stuff
    >Long, slow runs twice a week
    >Basic push ups, bodyweight squats, and so on for ladder work and climbing
    >Bent over rows, upright rows, and rowing machines for pulling hoses up and over obstacles

    If I could equate it to another workout, I would say any military style or general fitness workout with an emphasis on running long distances would help you tremendously.
