right o as a boy soldier 17 years old i could drink and smoke to my hearts content then still get up the next morning and do a bpfa with a sub 930 along the years i have added 15-30 seconds to my bpfa per annum along with weight gain, im not a fatty but people have started to call me big lad when needing a hand with lifting stuff and its pissing me off! so regeme change, as a bit of a gym dodger and a natural hatred for ptis and fitness freaks i have absolutely no idea what to do i have been told that a simple running plan could make a considerable change however i have mega biff feet with orthotics, having pain when standing in a position too long is discomforting but doing a bpfa absolutely wrecks me, the next day my feet are in bits! now heres the clincher. i have also been told that cycling is good for weightloss (and easy on the feet) but not as good as running, for every three miles cycled you could have the same effect running one mile or less. is this bollocks? would 1hr a day/40 mins/ half an hour cycling have any seeable effects within a set time? or should i just cut down on visits to the spar and get some lyposuction with the money saved? yours sincerely EWK PS my diet is shit and i am a pretty sociable guy so i like a few beers. alternatives could be added to those if you please! pps cutting on going out is not an alternative. my job is shit socialising with the lads is the only thing keeping me sane.
