Ever since the new IPPT system was announced, some people who have never passed their IPPT since they ORD-ed finally see light at the end of the tunnel: passing has become a possibility, and they can finally say goodbye to the dreaded RT.

While we admit that it’s relatively easy compared to the old system, one would still need some training if he hasn’t been exercising for years. So here’s one training program that you can print and use. Why engage an expensive personal trainer when the only thing you need is determination and this?

All it takes is two months and mere two training sessions per week, so it’s effectively useful for working adults who can’t even find time to have a decent dinner. And oh, if you’re looking to start an exercise regimen as well, this works too! Just note that before exercising, ensure you’re perfectly healthy to do so, and if you can’t even do one push-up or sit-up, we would suggest opting for IPT instead.

Instructions:

Simply print this out, and when you’ve done one of the tasks, cross it (there’s some psychological effect that motivates you when you see many crossed points). Leave at least two days to recover from each day, and try to take as many high-protein food (like chicken breast or peanuts) as possible.

For reference, you can take a look here for the IPPT score chart.

IPPT Training System

Week 1

Day 1:  Do your max rep for push-up (PU), sit-up (SU) and 2.4 km run (24). For running, make sure you jog all the way—even if the pace is slower than walking, continue that motion.

Day 2:

  • Push-up PU reps, then continue to do more, rest and do more until you can’t do anymore
  • Sit-up SU reps + 2
  • Jog 2.4 km without stopping (target to be in the 24 timing)

Week 2

Day 1:

  • Push-up PU + 3 reps, then continue to do more, rest and do more until you can’t do anymore
  • Sit-up SU reps + 2
  • Jog 2.4 km without stopping (target to be in the 24 timing)

Day 2:

  • Push-up PU + 5 reps, then continue to do more, rest and do more until you can’t do anymore
  • Sit-up SU reps + 4
  • Jog 2.4 km without stopping (target to be in the 24 timing)

Week 3

Day 1:

  • Push-up PU + 6 reps, then continue to do more, rest and do more until you can’t do anymore
  • Sit-up SU reps + 5

  • Jog 2.4 without stopping (No Target: Just run without stopping in the shortest time)

What’s next? Go book the IPPT test and just do what you have been doing for the last two days.

With certain placebo effects (e.g. you think you should be able to do better in the test because you’ll go all out), you should be hitting like PU + 25, SU + 25 and 2.4 km run with better timing. So, what are you waiting for? Hit the streets now! And all the best for your IPPT!
