    How NOT to make your first post, a clarification.

    Great post, had a good laugh on this one.  As a young Canadian, I am embarassed for my peers' poor communication skills and inability to express themselves clearly.  So many replies in these forums are just asking for clarification. Interesting counterpoint though, about currency of information...

    RMC - Master of Arts in War Studies

    Hello ! Hopefully I can revive this thread a bit.  I am applying to the MA War Studies programme at RMCC for Fall 2011 (thesis option).  However, I am a bit concerned, as I am in the recruitment process for a reserve position in Toronto (at this point, just awaiting the call - and have been told...

    Thinking About Buying...

    I spend alot of time with a 1954 SKS carbine (original bore for 7.62 x 39 Soviet round; and yes, with the original bayonet); it's fun for the range, but pretty heavy and the recoil is not well mitigated by the stock.  The biggest con is that the barrel heats up very quickly and cools very...

    Porter Airlines?

    Porter is great for those regional-type flights, although they also have a new route to Boston and are considering expanding in the East end of operations too.  Free drinks are always a bonus, plus better baggage allowances and everybody is quite friendly.  One of the best bits is that you can...

    Training your (hard)Core

    Most trainers will recommend beginning any training programme with core strengthening.  This is key to good posture and form in exercises that train the more commonly targeted major muscle groups.  It is becoming apparent as I get more familiar with these forums that many new recruits are most...

    Training Regimen with Odd Hours?

    Agreed; run when you can- vampire or not.  I find the buzz keeps me awake, so I tend to run first thing upon waking up, or during the 'mid-day slump' instead of a trip to timmies. (is it just me, or are vampires back in style)?

    Running Question

    I have heard that you cannot run too frequently (within your personal, reasonable limits), unlike with resistance training.  I like the idea of mixing it up with hills, and different surface types (try running in mud, through the bush, through shallow water, etc.).

    The Grip Strength Superthread- Read Here First

    Gotta agree with marlborough: ... but don't forget the unparalleled core workout that comes with all sorts of rock climbing!  For hand grip; I cut up a couple sections of 2x2 and nailed them to the joists in my basement ceiling from which to do forearm chinups.  The beauty of this is that...

    Shuttle Run Calculations

    They look pretty close to the 'beep test' many of us are familiar with. With regards to minimum standards and training, in the 'Reg force physical fitness guide' (created June 4, 2009) recommended timings for the 2400 metre run are given as follows: Men under 30 years of age: 11:56-10:13...

    My Experience

    I am in a similar situation at the moment, but am certain that patience is the key here.  No doubt they will not hold for you 'the position', and the general idea I continuously encounter in this subject is: wait patiently (with the occasional callback).
