don't get me wrong lads, i'm not saying you need to eat specific types of food. Whatever you eat is accpetable as long as his has the necessary nutritional value. I'm not saying leave the pie and chips out. I'm pretty certain a lot of people here pay attention to their food. But there are so many tr...

"Show me a 5k runner who eats crap and a non-active veggie and I know which one i'll pick to be fitter." Quite frankly mate, you make ridiculous statements like the above and then go onto to state that getting adequate protein and carbohydrates is important, conceeding that nutrition is important. W...

I meant I'm not really interested in the specifics of what they eat at Lympstone, but i've been there and know the food is good quality. Your reply just seemed to imply that it doesn't matter what people eat. Its simple, if you eat well, then you're training will be all the more efficient and effect...

"Show me a 5k runner who eats crap and a non-active veggie and I know which one i'll pick to be fitter." There is absolutely no logic in that statement. Nutrition is key to fitness - without the adequate nutrition, your training regime will fall apart. I didn't say that if you eat right you would ge...

Get at least 3 days rest, but no more than 6 days. Your body starts to lose muscle after about 9 days of inactivity, so 6 days should be the safe upper limit of rest. 3 Days minimum (assuming your last training session is a hard one) is necessary for your body to replenish itself. Just keep your die...

Watch Your Nutrition Lads!

I've just been browsing through after a while off, and every other post seems to be about training programs, but none of them cover nutrition. Nutrition is the key to fitness, along with rest and recovery. Without these, then your training will be buggered. Remember, you are injuring your body when ...

Generally, any piece of gym equipment used properly is beneficial. But there are so many different choices that its sometimes best just to stick with the basics - ie: bench press, deadlifts, squats, pull ups, dips, push ups, good mornings, pull downs, etc, etc, otherwise you could find yourself spoi...

Haven't been on here for a bit - been busy hitting the gym and chasing women (not literally). Just finished uni, so going to go the AFCO one day this week to get my application for the Royal Marines on the go. Wish I did it sooner though and am now sitting on my arse all day in my parents house, app...

Re: Energy drinks really do work!

I used to think they were a gimmick but before my 5miler today I supped 4 ASDA 'Blue Charge' and the time went from 40:44 (last Sat) to 40:08. The downside is, all the caffeine dehydrates you. Halfway through my mouth was dry as a bone. w@#k works too. I had one this morning and done extra sets in ...

Two Simple Questions - Sorry if they have been asked before

OK, I've had a look at the RAF website, but found it vague.

I wear glasses/contacts. I graduate this year. What jobs are available to me, and which are not?

Also, what are the conditions regarding laser eye surgery, specifically with regard to pilots and other flying roles?


Cheers.
