I am a female EMT and am concerned about the lifting. I truly thought I had this but I recently did my lift test and fell 50 lbs short of my final lift. I am petite but don't want to be a burden and not able to adequately do the job. I have hired a personal trainer and am on a high protein, low fat diet. I'm 5'6 and 120lbs. I need to lift 140lbs. I can currently do 90lbs. I have 6 weeks to be able to lift 50lbs more than what I currently can. Also I have to lift it to a mark on the wall that is based on average EMT height, so I have to get on my toes and hike the weight up to my shoulders when the taller EMT's can have it about waist high. I want this. I want to be good at my job. Are there any encouraging words or anyone who has been through this? I'm going hard for it, just need to know it is possible.
