    And you may take heed to what that NCO of yours told you; it'll serve well in the academy. Go right ahead and call it a "station house" on your first day. Then come back here and tell us what happened.

    Once again, the post about the ph/firehouse thing was a JOKE. I mean i really dont even see how anyone couldve taken that seriously. If i WAS serious, i wouldve apologized immediately upon getting chewed out by you. But thank you for correcting me on the station house/firehouse thing. However im sure ill get my backside handed to me at the rock for many other reasons.

    Thank you for your service, your advice and your concern.

    the only day a week I do an isolated muscle group for lifting is legs. I'll do 2x20 of squats, using much lighter weights than I could max out at. Then I'll do some straight leg dead lifts before jumping on the stairmill. I'll do some more leg work after that but my legs are pretty beat up by the time I'm jumping on the stairmill. I stopped doing a more traditional squat routine since I think it's more relevant to be able to do a much greater amount of reps at a lighter weight than a heavier weight at 3 reps. Also if you run through those 20 reps quickly it becomes a good cardio workout as well.

    That's what I've started doing dude. Leg press/lunges Monday and Friday with the rest of my circuit (light weight, high rep). And then on Wednesdays, dedicate the whole workout to heavy lifting with low reps. So squat like 3x5 or 5x5 and DL 1x3/5. Also leaving for Italy for 10 days Thursday. Gonna be tough to keep up with the weights but the running should def. be doable.

    I've trained with, competed with and been coached and mentored by some pretty dang tough people in my short life. They are men in good physical condition, men who have not been in a gym in years. It does not take a gym to get into and maintain good physical condition. And being good in the 'gym' is a lot different than competing 'out there.'

    I've trained with a few with people who bragged that they were better than everyone else and that they would be taking people's spots. In the end, on those occasions, the same people bragging about how good they were also somehow managed to not finish the season.

    If you're ready to go, if you are prepared, if you are in top physical condition, then let your actions and performance speak for itself. Quiet confidence and consistently good performance will not go unnoticed and will be respected.

    I might add that they best leaders I've encountered were people of few words, who led by example and through their actions. That's how they inspired others, built trust and made those around them better. And when they did speak, you listened closely, because you understood it was going to be important.

If you don't like my responses or the fact that you think I've taken you out of "context", wait'll you get to the Rock and then your house.

    You don't want to listen? Don't. You want to deflect and pretend you were kidding around? Enjoy yourself. By all means, take your mouth right to the Rock. I'll never know who you are or when you get there, but I'll be able to smile knowing the realization of how wrong you are is going to bea painful one. Best of luck.

    Your advice, as well as all others otj, is greatly appreciated by myself and most of us on this forum. I will ALWAYS heed the advice of those who have gone before me. What reason do i have not to listen to you. I have no issue with anything youve said as to what we all should be primarily focused on; that is, getting thru the rock and probation. But this forum has sort of become a PH centered forum instead of an OC centered one, hopefully we can all remain on track.

    The only 2 elements of your post which has me confused is:

    1) What am i not listening/dont want to listen to?
    2) What am i wrong about?

    Becuz u said youll be smiling when i get to the rock and find out that im wrong about something. And if its about that ph/firehouse post then again that was only a joke sir. lol i mean it really was. idk why u dont believe me if thats what youre talking about. But again thanks for your advice and such advice is always welcome and appreciated.

    ^ I think we fill the forum with **** until there is more info...Every time some new info comes in, the forum explodes. When theres nothing to talk about we go back to PH nonsense and other bull...

    On that note, is anyone excited for the Ronda Rousey fight?

    When is that, she is freakin hot?
    Anyways, I think we should get back to what we need to focus on, and that's the next step for most of us. I go meet my investigator on Wednesday, I'm a little nervous to say the least.

    Yea bro I was there in 08'. I step foot on FDNY grounds and almost licked it too.

    Apparently you seem ok about someone coming on the job being 300 pounds, I understand someone being on the job for a decade but someone just getting on in their 20s???? Come on man
    I'm not your "bro". You're light years away from calling anyone on this job "bro". Where are you now? On line hoping for a phone call. I'm ok with anyone who proves they got what it takes to do this job right. I don't care about what they look like. Your attitude is better suited for the calendar, not real firefighting. How about you just superimpose your tic tac toe abs on a photo and send it in instead of trying to play fireman?

    My time and advice are reserved for the guys who come on this site looking for info that's going to help them become firemen. I'm not gonna sugarcoat it, but with the exception of you and that almostthere clown these seem to be good guys looking to do the right thing and act the right way. Do us all a favor and take your little pu**y *** on over to sanitation; those muscles of yours are better suited for garbage than firefighting.

    You do realize every time you put up a post in barely intelligible English while trying to sound like a smartass you prove my point, right?

    I think you should go to the city parks enforcement patrol; writing tickets to people littering in Central Park is about all you can handle at this point.

    No need for you to thank me. You have to understand you are not going to be judged on what you've done; only on what you DO. I WANT you to be a good fireman when your time comes. That means you'll a) be an asset to my brothers already on the job and b) you will be an asset to the child hiding in a closet or under a bed waiting for you to find them. If I, or southbronx or bam24 give you sh*t, it's because we believe you may have what it takes to do this job right. This is how you're going to be treated your first few years on the job; you'll have to find a way to deal with it. It's not because we like being assh*les; it's because we want you to be as tough as we are. Don't take anything personal from here on out. Fireman are rough men; we're not going to coddle you. We're going to kick you in the head until you understand what it is you're supposed to do. You will notice almostthere and jukez basically enjoy half assed insults instead of real advice on how to act on the job from us, right?

    Oh, and don't call me "sir". I'm old enough now to where that kind of thing is an insult.

    I didn't ask for your time nor your advice, quite frankly I don't need it. It is kind of disappointing to see someone who "serves and protects" out calling someone who been persuing this caree for years and years a "little pu**y". Unfortunately I Won't go down to that level, especially on a forum which EVERYONE can view. Unless you planning to go to proby school and break one of my limbs I don't see how I won't become a firefighter. Oh and by the way...you must be a big shot firefighter, how many fires have you been to these past five years?

    I was telling someone else on here to try and throw in a heavy day of leg/core work, like squats and deadlifts. Now, I'm not a trainer and I really know nothing of the science of fitness. I DO know that I perform much better at fires with that day of heavy lifts. Do what works best for you, but from my experience hardcore leg and core strength is irreplaceable on this job.

    Many more than you've been to, Mr. January. You're literally too stupid and conceited to insult. You'll hear nothing more from me. You're a waste of time and hopefully a waste of paperwork when your little pus** ***** gets dropped from the Rock. So long, prettyboy.

    Like most of us on this job, he's probably been to enough fire in a 5 year period that he can't remember them all. This is an internet forum and an anonymous one, which give mu h courage. Never have I heard aomeone so certain to achieve something they know so little about. You have 2 ears and 1 mouth so that you can listen twice as much as yoh speak. You would be well suited to an attitude adjustment.

    On that subject, sadly this forum has degenerated into something that I find to be an embarrasment to this great organization. Too bad, I'm optimistic for most of you. All I get when I come here is frustration. No more for me...
