  1. Help required - Police PAT

    I found running the 2.4km test for the army was mostly mental. Even while it's hurting and you're breathing hard you just had to keep pushing the pace. Never allowing the thoughts of "I'll just slow down a little bit here" to creep in. Having a course where you had a halfway point was helpful to see if your pace is correct. Also picking up the pace for the last few hundred meters and pushing through the pain can cut a bit of time. Just have to bite the bullet and keep practicing 2.4km each run trying to better your time. I had to get under 10mins 30secs and I knew if I was at the halfway point at about 5mins I could scrape under.
  2. Umbillical Hernia

    Have you seen this thread? http://www.gymnation.co.nz/forum/injury-rehab/umbilical-hernia-how-long-heal-if-possible My ACC claim wasn't accepted because they said it occured over time and not from one specific event. I thought I filled out the questionnaire in a way that would prove it occured during the lifting event (tearing feeling, high pain level, saw a doctor within a few days etc.) but it was still declined. If you went to the doc/said anything about it occuring back a few years ago and now it has gotten worse they will likely decline the claim. Best of luck though. Public system took me about 6 months and I think I was a reasonably high priority. If you want any more info feel free to ask.
  3. Brand names

    Including if there is a health issue? I thought the reason the thread started was due to that. But then it was found through the thread it was likely just old stuff.

  7. True true. Wouldn't you say a lot of the bodybuilding/supplement industry is built on false hope?
  8. Yeah who do they think they are!? Not telling everybody they inject illegal steriods. I don't know how they sleep at night.

    I can't remember the specifics. Something about the location it was/unsure about the exact location of the hernia because of the small lipoma on top/the way the repair would have to be done/the way the lipoma would have to come out. Yeah it's annoying. And even now that I'm back into it I'm not sure how hard I can push it yet. Do I increase the weights and just hope I don't feel anything tearing or what!? Haha. Thanks :-D

    So I'm easing back into the training and starting to up the weights after my hernia surgery on the 20th Dec 13. Recovery has taken a little longer then anticipated because it wasn't keyhole and I don't want to 'F' it up by going too heavy too soon. Max weight in my home gym is 80kg so I will look at getting back into a proper gym very shortly. Stats: Age: 23Height: 178cmWeight: 77.5kgI'm thinking it's time for a post summer bulk. At least the scar is centered ha.
  13. is it true some supplement stores import from Mexico

    Yeah and some of the containers from mexico are full of cocaine, just hope you get one of them! *dance4*
