    So that means that they have already got up 700-750 list numbers for medical as of today ? Sounds good!

I never used it before but everybody always tells me to take protein if im working out that much. What you guys think?
    A scoop of protein a day isn't going to make you gain weight. You'd need to be getting around 1.5g of protein per lb of body weight while lifting to start gaining mass while lifting. Of course if you're lifting you should have a high protein diet, as someone else mentioned protein acts as the building blocks that rebuild muscle. Think of it as bricks when building a house; you can't build a brick house without bricks, no matter how many workers you have on hand. But a scoop of protein in the morning isn't much different than a couple glasses of skim milk or a grilled chicken breast; it's lean and healthy but it isn't gonna turn you into Arnold.

    Honestly, if anyone tells you to cut protein out of your diet for the academy they have no idea what they're talking about.

    Oh damn, totally forgot about the 11th and 12th battalions. Whoops. Understandably 35/14 is a different world from 8/2.

    I'm hopeful this is the case, but i think the safer bet is that us in the latter half of 100's will finish getting processed in the summer, after the new class goes in.

    If people in the 29XX start getting medical dates now, that will be the sign if they are waiting till after the june class, or are just going to finish the 100's off and keep it moving.

    29XX have very little chance of getting in to this summer class IMHO.

    Seems like a solid prediction. That window for hearing they sent out more medical dates is gonna start closing real fast now. After the psychs are finished, they either will.... Or they won't...
    (Really hoping they finish up you 100s before summer.)

    Fdny exam 2000:
    I started taking an anabolic mass gainer (protein shake) to pack on muscle while still doing a lot of cardio and High Intensity Training, and the stuff is way better than I would've thought. Gained 10-12 lbs in 4 weeks. I don't substitute meals though, and I drink the shakes at night time. I'd give it a shot, see how it works, BPI makes a good product,

    The problem with gainers is that the gains you're making are mostly fat. Probably around 15-20% gains are muscle mass. If you feel you need to gain weight because you are under weight than gainers can be useful, but for the majority people looking to get lean mass gains, they are a waste.

    People always ask "What can I do to bulk up?" and the simple answer is to lift on a regimen and incorporate a high protein diet. More calories won't add to your muscle gains and will only pack on fat, which most people wouldn't want as it typically just goes to the belly for most men. The majority of people can't naturally pack on 10-12lbs of muscle in a year let alone in a month, that's why gainers are really a waste to me. If you're looking to gain fat for some reason though they do work.

    Unless it looks like you're dying you'll still pass.... my heart rate reached 200 as well after my 8 minutes and they said OK good, you pass....

    QUOTE=TB_FDNY;1432588]Hey guys I did the stairs today with a 55lb vest for 8:30 which is my longest time yet. I have one concern tho, my heart rate reached a maximum of 204. Is that going to be a problem when it comes to medical? I didn't feel like I was dying towards end nor was it very difficult to breathe...what can I do to decrease my max Heart rate? I am 25 y/o so I know my HR can't pass 175bpm[/QUOTE]

    I strongly disagree. True Mass weight gainer has worked quite well for me. I have gained 25 lbs. since June 2014. Fat gain has been minimal while strength and muscle mass gains have been exceptional. It's not all because of the weight gainer--as you said, a progressive lifting regimen is important--but once-daily supplementation has contributed to post-workout recovery and maintaining the caloric surplus necessary for mass gains. I'd say listen to your body: If you need some extra mass in order to increase your absolute strength, try supplementing with a weight gainer. If fat gain becomes a problem, phase it out and go for something with fewer calories, or increase your weekly caloric expenditure (by doing more running).

    I eat some creatine after each workout, for a total of approx. 5 teaspoons per week.
    Had to phase it out in order to pass the medical, but now I'm back on it.
    Can't stomach the energy drinks--too much caffeine. I stick to water and beer...

    Can't really do the energy drinks or pre workout supps. I tried C4 for about a week and would leave my house in the morning with my right eye twitching and would randomly start sweating at work for no reason lol. Not sure what's in that crap but it's crack

    Is there any possibility that they may not call all the candidates that have the same score before the list ends? Specifically, the 99s, which there are about 1200 of? Doesn't seem fair if that could be the case...

    In reply to the fitness / weight loss / mass gain comments on this page and a few prior;

    I am by no means a fitness expert; just wanted to share my recent work out experiences in preparation for the medical stairmaster.
    2 weeks ago (due to current employment and no time to work out) I was a bit out of shape and stored more fat on me than I would like.
    First attempt at the stairmaster wearing a 75lb vest, my heart rate was like 188 after 5 minuts. - a grueling 5 minuts due to my lazy lifestyle.
    After the night of my 1st stairmaster attempt I put myself on a diet, and decided to hit the gym every morning before work.

    Diet included:
    Drink: Water - all the time no cheating and no substitutions.
    * Breakfast - 1/4 bowl of regular oatmeal, multi vitamin, citrus pill, cinamon pill.
    ** Protein shake right after my gym workout.
    * Lunch: 1 Apple, 1 5oz container of fat free yogurt and a protein bar.
    * Dinner: Steamed broccoli and 1 piece of grilled chicken. 1/2 shot of raw apple cider vinegar.

    Work out included:
    Morning:
    * Hit the gym and walk on the stairmaster 3 minuts no vest.
    * Put on wight vest (75 lbs) and walk till my legs turned to jello. - at first 5 minuts was a nightmare for me; but I pushed through.
    * Full body Free weights; light weight (25lbs) high reps (till i couldnt do any more) 3 sets each - chest, bys, tri's, squats, calf's (you get it - full body) - 30 second rest in between sets and muscle change.
    * Back on the stairmaster no vest for 8 minuts.

    Evening:
    35lb kettle bell. full body kettle bell workout and finishing with swinging it between my legs and up to my face level as many times as I can until I couldnt take any more (did the swing 3 sets to max exaustion)

    Ive done this every day for 2 weeks. It sucked at first; but after the 1st week it wasnt bad at all and I actually looked forward to my workouts.
    I havent had a food craving not once.
    I lost 14lbs to date (2 weeks) and have increased my strength significantly.
    My heart rate after 5 minuts on the stairmaster with a 75Lb vest is right around 160.

    My goal is to pass the stairmaster heart rate on the 1st shot - hope ive worked hard enough.
    Just wanted to share this; getting your heart rate down; losing fat and getting stronger can be a real short term goal if you apply a bit of dicipline.
    Hopefully the day of the medical my heart rate will be even lower due to only wearing 50lbs.. if i fail - 8 mins will be a breez with only 50 lbs on.
    Good luck everyone.

    Good post gesc and good luck on the medical!

    I'm a pretty slim and over the summer I was hitting the crossfit box hard, usually 5 days a week. I lost like 10-15 pounds unintentionally and was told about "healthy carbs" like sweet potatoes.

    Whenever I do a heavy cardio workout (almost eevery workout since training for the academy) I eat sweet potatoes. Tons of nutrients !

    No but they will if you need to lose weight based on your height for sure. Someone posted the chart, I would aim to be at those number to avoid disappointment. I was stressing it because according to the chart I was 4-6 lbs overweight for my height. I made sure I showed up to medical at the right weight. I was actually 1 lb over lol. No one wants to have to go back to bhs in 30 days later and expect to have lost weight.

    im not sure which chart they use. But They take your vitals they do weight and height. By the end of the day you see a doctor and I'm sure he will tell you if you need to lose weight. I would say if you know it be prepared to hear it from
    Them, I've seen them tell a guy who was bigger and obviously heavier due to muscle to lose weight
