    OMG I CAN'T EVEN! RT @ CAPTAINEDMUNDBLACKADDER #trisdon'tlie #bisfortheguys #shoulderslikeboulders #abslikeslabs #vascularity

    Precisely man! Yeah, I enjoy a bit of glorified circuit training too, I get in 2 WODs a week, usually. But even when I did the honourable thing, and sacrificed guns workouts for squats/deadlifts etc, its didn't pay off. However, started doing the typical ego workouts - as in, shoulder day, chest day, back day etc, and I'm far stronger for it. Even small things like lifting an 80kg generator into a landrover on my own, or running out 1.5km of cable over open ground is fine now. Powerlifter Napp would have struggled, for some reason?!

    You don't need to to the gym to run mate, just find 20 minutes in the morning to either do steady state or sprints/walks of the pitch!!

    For the nights you just can't make it to the gym- these don't fully replace free weights but in a pinch they will do and think of the price of gym member ship etc.
    A bloke in work is using them now. The fact that he can squat 240kg, and do all that fancy shit makes me think that they are a worthy piece of kit!

    I'm coming up to my last week of my 3 months of 'bodybuilding', if you can call it that. I'm still a skinny streak of piss.

    Just did the duathlon out in Baldonnel. Ran 4k, cycled 16k, then ran another 4k. Took 64 minutes.

    I thought I was fast, but there are some guys in the DF who are so much faster.

    Forgetting that units have PTIs too, who can conduct testing

    In my unit, I've asked about doing ITs at the week-ends. All I got was blank stares then "I'll look into it". With nothing heard afterwards.

    We have had this planned for months. Assuming you have the numbers, and they are certed on the PMS, finding the testing officer + assistants to come in and do the test is all that is needed ( book facilities too ).

    You have to give a lot of notice to get a testing officer in on a weekend BUT IT CAN BE DONE . At short notice it is better to join the weekday ITs in PDF-land that are usually on fairly frequently. Note if you fk with them like say "40 will attend" but only 5 turn up you are fking with a scarce resource. I will find you and decapitate you.

    Aspiration & target but reality and demands of jobs, young family, previous medical condition etc make it harder.

    Yesterday -v- 12 months ago
    PU grade 3 -v- grade 3 (no progress but something I find hard)
    SU grade 2 -v- grade 1 (didn't do as well as I should have)
    2 miles grade 2 -v- grade 4 (knocked over 1 mins off my time, and got very close to a PB in the last 4 years or so)

    10km grade 3 -v- grade 4 (knocked 8 mins off my time)


    There is an proposed amendment to make it harder to get a G1

    During that time I've lost 7kg (and I've a small build).

    I've found what works for me to increase speed (hill training)

    Have to find a way to get much better at PUs

    I've heared pull ups will be coming across the board, doubt it though.
    As for an amendment to make it harder for a grade 1 how??
    Not everyone gets one? ? As for finding push ups hard, awww poor you ��
