Designing the program
The training session consists of three parts for an FBI workout. The first is the aerobic phase for which you will have to run 1.5 miles, second comes the anaerobic phase for sprint and lastly the strength phase that will help you in your sit-up/push-up test.
In order to include these exercises in the FBI sessions, you will need to devote three days in a week for strength/aerobic workout and two days in a week for anaerobic workouts. This will give you a resting time for the remaining two days that is necessary so that you get stronger by each week.
