  1. Push pull - not what I expected

    si23 I run a 6-6.30 mile at 10k race pace. I'm in the red according to BMI. I'm 6ft2 and 15stone, well I was at the time of medical and fitness. It's a load of toff. Now you've started training so hard your weight may palteau due to muscle density increase. You should try BF%. Good luck for your fitness guys. You sound pretty ready.

    Oh also rumours are that L&B are one of the only forces to still have a working machine. They actually have 2. Sent from my GT-I9100 using Tapatalk 2
  3. Push pull - not what I expected

    This is true. However for recruitment one is actually lower. Only for recruitment though. Its 64kg. Can't remember whether it's push or pull though. Sent from my GT-I9100 using Tapatalk 2
  4. Start date 17th July

    There are loads of places. Get on Lettingweb if you're looking tp rent. Its rife with properties. It all depends if you're sharing or not. 1beds and 2beds are much the same price I've found over the years of moving round. Try places like Craigmillar and Leith. Not right out the city but not in the city either. I can speak highly of them through experience of living there. They do have a reputation though. But alot of redevelopment is being stuck into them. If you don't mind travelling a wee bit you could stay in Musselburgh and such like. It depends what you're looking for. There are so many buses, meaning staying out of the city centre is easy really. Edinburgh is more like a big town than city. But be prepared to pay big bucks if you step into the 2mile radius of the centre for living. Sent from my GT-I9100 using Tapatalk 2

    I also got A. Which is good because I live just in the City boundaries so nice short commute wherever I end up stationed. Think there's riffraff everywhere to be honest!
  6. The point in protein isn't to strip the fat its to help you feel fuller for longer. I'd advise a high protein diet before starting on shakes. If you're looking to continue after the tests. However do take shakes after workouts to boost recovery. What alot of people seem to forget is that you really need to bundle carbs into your body after workouts aswell. Impact whey tends to do the job. However you can get diet recovery shakes with added BCAAs and such like. Just read up on them. And don't go for expensive maximuscle stuff. Stick to cheaper stuff. Don't wanna plug on here though. But i I quite like myprotein.co.uk stuff. Good effort on all the training though. I ran a 9.17 at my final fitness with shin splints so its doable. You should pass easy on the run if you can run 3miles then cycle after. Sent from my GT-I9100 using Tapatalk 2
  7. Its just a dyno machine. Not info on L&B site about it? Pretty sure if you type it in to Google for push pull machine it'll come up. Concept2 i think make one. Sent from my GT-I9100 using Tapatalk 2
  8. There'll be plenty. Just look around on youtube. Don't get lost in all the rubbish that people talk on there though. Use the L&B programme as a base model. After all it's there to help.

    Fitness again as its been that long since my original! Sent from my GT-I9100 using Tapatalk 2
  11. Don't worry about the push pull. It is all about technique. I'll give you an example. I was bench pressing 70kg at reps of 5 before my fitness test. Went in and pushed over 100! Its a measure of impact strength and power. If I were you because you have such a long time now start on the dynamic power exercises. For example clap pushups and pull ups finished with a jump at the top of the rep. These will get your strength up along with keeping muscle reaction times high. Mix up some heavy weights low reps on the target areas. So for example seated rows and bent over rows for the pull part and stuff like bench press and push press for the push. The trick is not to get bogged down in thinking its what you can lift at the gym. Its as much about being dynamic as it is strength. Sent from my GT-I9100 using Tapatalk 2

    Well done. That's a long wait till the next stage. It was something like 10 days between my SETS and Fitness! Having to sit another one now to get official confirmation of offer. Get training!
  13. Tulliallan July 2012

    Can't wait to get started either. Fitness should be no problem again. Ran it in 9.20 yesterday on the last 2.4k of a 10k. So should be fine. Strength i hope i have no problem with. Bent over row is at 95kg for 5 reps and bench is 90for 5 reps. Seated row is at like 87.5 or something! Just hope i don't get injured on the run up to it. At least i know there's gonna be 2of us there!! Sent from my GT-I9100 using Tapatalk 2

    I've got another fitness test on the 1st of June cause its been that long since my original. Originally done it in November. Nothing to worry about though. Apparently we get our offer of appointment after completion of this fitness. Anyone else in this boat? Sent from my GT-I9100 using Tapatalk 2
  15. Tulliallan July 2012

    I'm scheduled for the July intake as well for L&B. Will have it confirmed on the 1st of June when I have another fitness test as its been 6months since my original. Get our offers of appointment that day when we pass. The uniform fitting definitely makes it real. Just starting to get excited now. Sent from my GT-I9100 using Tapatalk 2
