That has been my point from the beginning.If that’s really 6-7 hours a day of serious physical training, I doubt many people would enter with the ability to complete the first week in any shape to complete the second.
Did you mean to say 6-7 hours instead of weeks? Ok, but seriously, how many hours of lecture would go into this? Do people envision actual class time lectures for an hour at a time, complete with note-taking? While people often take notes as part of their training, i doubt there is enough to discuss to fill up hours of academic style class time over the span of 12 weeks. A few hours? Sure. This kind of training doesn’t usually lend itself to that kind of presentation, though. I think the implication is that this is really heavily weighted toward the physical training.If it’s 6-7 weeks of a combination of things (including technical work), it’s more reasonable.
Technical work is still physical. Granted, it isn’t drilling 1000 punches and kicks at a time, but it is still physical and still wears you out.
Sure it’s a good idea and it recognizes the point that this kind of exercise isn’t realistic or reasonable. And I’m not talking about the instructors teaching this bootcamp from start to finish over and over. I am talking about them doing it once, from start to finish. If the instructors can’t get through the instructing side of it without assistance, how could a participant survive it all?Edit: I wouldn’t expect an instructor to repeatedly go through the same rigorous boot camp. It doesn’t bother me if the instructor is using a team. Seems a good idea.
