Speed and strength are both critical for passing the POPAT, but so is technique. Practicing with LEPAT helped me get through the push/pull. When I did it for the first time I had a lot of problems with it, but after I was shown how to do it properly the push/pull was something I could become confident in! Knowing what to expect and how to do it will ease your mind and allow you to focus on getting a competitive time!
