So you're ready to CRUSH the PAST?

Build the foundation for your PJ/CRO training, get your numbers up, and get accepted into Indoc with Brian Silva's PASS THE PAST Workout Program!

Do any of these apply to you?

  • You're not sure what type of training is best for crushing the PAST
  • You want to go to Indoc as soon as possible, so you need the MOST targeted and efficient workout program
  • Other workout programs haven't delivered on their promises
  • Or maybe you just want to learn how get your numbers up from someone who was an ACTUAL Indoc Instructor

You're in luck Cone!

The PAST is the entrance exam to get into Pararescue Indoctrination. It's also the perfect opportunity to leave a positive first impression on the Indoc instructors since the PAST is their first introduction to you. 

The fact is 30% of all candidates who attempt to pass the PAST after Basic Military Training fail. So if you're thinking about shipping to Basic Military Training with the minimum PAST numbers, you are effectively setting yourself up for failure.  

I don't think anyone should have to guess how to train which is exactly why I developed this workout program.  I have incorporated tried and true methods that will help you improve if you stay consistent and put in the work!



The ultimate workout program, developed by the Pararescue Indoctrination instructor that literally wrote the current Indoc lesson plans, to help you CRUSH the PAST!

Who is this course for

This 8-week program is designed for prospective PJ/CRO trainees that do not meet the PAST standards. Candidates from other career fields such as CCT/TACP/SOWT/SERE have also successfully utilized this program.  If you have taken the PAST test and were not able to pass a certain event, this program is for you. With a focus on swimming, running, and calisthenics, this program builds the foundation for the rest of your PJ training prep.


This program consists of 6 days/wk of intense training. I designed this program to be progressive in nature, comprised of bodyweight exercises, calisthenics, swim, and run routines. Although this is my introductory workout program, it's NOT easy.  You should have a foundation of fitness prior to starting this program. You will be able to choose any Monday start date following your purchase, because I designed it to mirror a typical week at Indoc, Monday-Saturday.  



Think of me as your coach. This isn’t just a workout program. This is not a PDF workout you print out and take to the gym. My premium app delivers your workout effortlessly by providing video instructions, and I offer my personal tips, comments, mentorship on each workout day through the app. You will be able to contact me via email and connect with the BE A PJ community through my Facebook VIP group.

"I am currently doing the Pass the PAST program. I’ve seen gains in my cardio ability to keep up with long workouts. I’ve gained 5lbs of muscle solely doing cals, running and swimming and following the nutrition plan. I like that the plan comes from someone that not only is in the careerfield but also was part of [the] training plan at Indoc." - MC

"I am currently doing the Pass the PAST and I am loving every second of it. I like the fact that all exercises are Indoc specific. Since starting the program I can definitely see a lot of improvements with more still to come! Unlike some programs I have done, I enjoy that with yours it’s just a simple grind every workout nothing to complicated it’s either you enjoy the pain or you don’t." -Chris

"This program is insane. I'm going into my third week and can tell a huge difference from when I started." -Mike

"Today's workout was brutal. Broke me off. Loving the program dude. Definitely seeing the gains, perfect difficulty. It all seems very relevant and thought out rather than just an average workout routine for someone getting into shape." - PL

"I love the routine and the way the weekly schedule is worked out: previously I'd had a lot of trouble finding a way to do both running, swimming, and calisthenics on a regular basis, but the workout helps you make good use of your time."- TG
