  • Hand-Raised Push-ups in this event, you still have to do pushups, but now you also have to add a lift of your hands off the floor when in the down (chest to ground) position each repetition. 
  • A 250-Meter Sprint, Drag, and Carry in event, this is five different tests within one event: a 50-meter sprint; a backward 50-meter drag of a 90-pound sled; a 50-meter movement; a 50-meter carry of two 40-pound kettlebells; and a final 50-meter sprint.

  • Two-Mile Run in This event Soldiers still have to run 2 miles for their cardiovascular endurance test.

Start slowley ,do not over train or break your body. Time your running and check time for distance. Do some Push up and Pull ups it will help you to gain strength. And make sure hydred your self with water and eat more gree vegetable it will help you in recovery.
I strongly recommend you to participate in Future soldier program.

In local town recreuiting station manytime they conduct some type of Physical Phitness Event. Many time it is once every week . Participate in this event. Also it is good for you to connect with other future solder like you. And if you have any question these recrutiers can guide you.
Not only that but also may be recent graduate Soldier can help you if you have any question .In army there is  Hometown Recruiting Assistance Program (HRAP)

       Hometown Recruiter Assistance Program (HRAP)
This Program  allows enlisted Soldiers who have recently completed Advanced Individual Training (AIT), One Station Unit Training (OSUT) or Army Civilian Acquired Skills Training (ACASP) to return to their hometowns to assist the local recruiters by sharing their Army training experiences with family, friends, high school classmates, Future Soldiers, veterans, and community leaders.
They might be best resource because they are fresh graduate from the boot camp.

What to Pack for Boot Camp?

Do not bring lots of cloth because you will be wearing Army cloth when you will reach, so do not over pack. Do not bring video game, Laptop because you will not allow to use it during basic training.
I recommend you to bring stamp and envelops.  Also learn some tricks to folding cloth.  Because you will have many army gears to pack in small place, so just learn folding technique. Search in youtube, you will find it.
