Bergan training

#1
Hello,

I am a bootneck (save your banter for other threads and i'll gladly bite), doing some bergan work for 'them' however when carrying 60lbs+ i notice my right hand goes mega numb v quickly. it doesnt hurt or owt but as soon as i drop the bergan off me shoulders my hand returns to normal. i've always had this, but usually been too distracted by other things to bother with it, and as im training on my own it is a bit off putting.

anybody else get this?

any tips to help?

Oh ok then, I had a similar problem many a moon ago and the Doc just put it down to the weight resting on a nerve, bit akin to pins and needles in your foot when you're sat funny. The only way I could stop it was to jiggle my bergan about a bit but then considering a yomp is 3/4 of a tab at half the speed you should be ok!

aye cheers for the advice fellas, think im gonna see if a bit of extra padding on the strap does the trick. if not, then obviously im just a mincer and i may as well give up now!!

oh, and speaking of being a mincer sandman???

Did you find that by googling "gay sex tips". :)
You are suffering with Rucksack-Induced Plexopathy Mimicking a Lateral Antebrachial Cutaneous Neuropathy.
You'll live.
As JD et al, say, just try jiggling it about a bit from time to time. And before you ask, thats not a gay sex tip. (Like you need any, you big bear you)

well if you do a lickle bit of research, instead of second-hand galley (sorry cookhouse) queue dits, you'll find the first woman didn't actually pass, yes she completed all of the four commando tests, but over a very lengthy period, ur supposed to pass them in a seven day period, think she took something like 8 months in total, however 'outside influences' dictated she be given the extra allowance, so that one doesnt really count. To the other woman who passed the course, well done, good effort girl. and correct me if i'm wrong, a woman HAS completed P coy hasn't she??
