    Voluntary Release update

    It was pretty abrupt. When I was on PAR they just told us all to stand in the hall and that we had to pay our own way home (thankfully al of us had our paperwork processed just before and had our golden tickets so we didnt have to pay our way home. They didnt really elaborate on medical releases...

    When you say 2,3, or 6 do you mean those as levels of the Beep test (sry, Im very unfamiliar with the beep test)

    If you're accustomed to running you know the difference. Shin splints are like shooting sharp pains up your shin. Almost feels like its the actual shin bone.

    Not meeting physical requirments

    Im talking about hauling arse, running as fast as you can.  Short distance running. I can "lightly jog" and still pass within the minimum requirements of the express test. Im just worried that my lower legs may not be able to handle it. Ive been running for a while, and practicing running for...

    Not meeting physical requirments

    When I did my processing the medic had me do a few push-ups. Thats about the only real physical task they had me do before St.Jean. Being prepared in the long run is definitely a good thing, obviously. Ive always been a walker/jogger, but never long distance (usually don't run for anymore than...

    Liberal Party of Canada Leadership

    I'm disappointed by the lack of discussion on policy through this "leadership race"- it certainly hasn't felt like a race. The party has essentially thrown their lot behind the guy-Trudeau-who they feel will get them back to power the quickest. And most of Trudeau's appeal has come through his...

    Friendship and comradeship in bmq?

    I'm content as long as there isn't a persistent troublemaker or two or more "troublemakers"in the group I'm in.

    Alternative handgrip practice

    Its a gym located on the premises of the CFB Gander. Both military and civvies are allowed to use it, but civvies have to pay and get less hours than the military crowd. To my knowledge they have no dynamometers. And as far as I know the gym dosent formally conduct express tests

    Alternative handgrip practice

    My apologies if there was another thread, I was unaware of it. I find this forum to be like a maze sometimes.

    Alternative handgrip practice

    Hey, there Im wondering if its possible to prepare for the handgrip test without one of those handgrip devices ? I ask because the local gym (a Canadian forces gym)has no handgrip devices and I cant find any in the local stores.

    Not meeting physical requirments

    I can do regular push ups, but I supplement regular push ups with knee push ups sometimes. Theyre not just for those having difficulties. For the most part I mentioned them as a useful exercise for at home to the guy who started this thread. And yeh, all recruits get access tro gym equipment

    Not meeting physical requirments

    Im in the same boat you are. I have BMQ in 17 days and Im pretty much screwed. The application process for the forces went much quicker than I though and I may have overestimated my own abilities. If you don't pass the express test right away you get sent to warrior preparation company and youre...

    Liberal Party of Canada Leadership

    So much for a leadership race where there was robust discussion on policy. Just clamor to the guy they think will sweep them back to power

    Just a check up

    Got a hold of someone who knew about this and he said you need a document with your name and the number you were given after you sent in the online application.

    Just a check up

    So, Ive completed my online sign-up and I have the documents the CF specified be sent to them (birth certificate/academic transcripts). When I mail or fax these in, do I just send these in by themselves - and the Canadian forces will know to which applicant they belong too- or do I attach a...
