    So today I had to do some police physical testing. On top of not working out much in the last 2-3 weeks, my allergies kicking my ass (main culprit) and over all just being tired from lack of sleep, I didn't do a good job.

    I had to run half a mile in 5 minutes of less, which I completed it but I was dead last with a fat guy who doesn't even lift. Not a fun time at all. It's a wake up call to take cardio more seriously (which would also help me in burning cals which would burn some body fat) so I'm def going to get into the grove cause that was embarrassing as hell.

    Never done much cardio in the past (once a month if I was lucky) but I need to test again soon and I want my time to be better and not feel like shyt when I'm done so any advice on any endurance sups, breathing techniques or what ever could help me run/do cardio more efficiently and not be last would be great; Cause looking good dont mean shyt out there you got to be able to move & quick.

    Thx in advance.

    Sprints buddy! Sprints and running stairs helped out a lot during my Fire academy. Sprints themselves helped me shave a solid 01:30 off my 2 mile. My last 2 mile was 13:08. Honestly tho sprints dude. I know i'm being repetitive as sh1t but that's cuz i'm a believer

    One of my favorite things to do is find a good long line of street poles and sprint one set then walk another, repeat. Do that for about 15 min and call it good. I'd only do it 2 - 3x a week at most.

    I throw up every time I do them, literally. When I say sprint I mean all out everything you've got.

    Thx for the advice.

    The heavier guy who was last threw up after the challenges & still had better times than me.

    There was another heavier dude who was smoking the course and he was a good 30-40lbs over weight not in a good way either.

    I was probably in the top 10 of the heaviest people there out of like 10 girls and 20 guys...

    Everyone else were 175 or less... Some people looked 140-150lbs.

    See man that's the thing.... I shouldn't have to vomit to do this. I should be able to run this job this easy. I got some work to do and lifting is on the back burner for a bit. Me bulking up to this 25lbs in the last year is not a good thing apparently.

    Yeah I had quit creatine. Started back on that today. Took agmatine last night and I think I read that beta-alanine helps. I have some hemavol samples I may take for my next bout....
    May have to get on the Anavite multi-vitamin too.

    lololol!!! I've seen some sh1t! I had a sgt in the army who smelt like nothing but cigs and vodka and would smoke the sh1t out of us during our runs. It's just like anything else some people are naturally better than others or enjoy it more. Remember during the run the more you suck that sh1t up and dig deep the faster it will be over.

    Sprints are good

    20 seconds on 40 seconds off on a bike is a good starting point.

    I also do this routine where i swing a sledge hammer 10 times on each arm into the ground as hard as i can> do 20 star jumps> then a shuttle run for 30 metres and back. I keep repeating thsi cycle for 10-20 min. You can push as hard as you want to or back off when you need to and the sledge hammer gives your lungs a break, works your muscles and keeps your heart rate high. It gets you in shape fast. id recomend this for fastest results.

    I'm not saying that I vomit because of lack of conditioning. I'm saying I vomit because I push myself that hard every time I run. That's the only way to get better. Maybe not throwing up but progressing. Just like hitting the weights gotta keep track of times and get better every time.

    Nah I wouldn't drop a bunch of cash on some new stuff. You're a smart guy, take the stuff you already have, hit the pavement and grind it out. You got this bro

    Nice. Don't have a sledge hammer around though.

    Sprints seem to be the key here.

    Sledge kills man, no doubt! Another thing we do during PT. Anything along the lines of intervals I think will give you a great start. Just remember to track and progress.

    I'm outta here bro steak time

    HemaVol is an incredible endurance aid. I would definitely look into it for its Citrulline Malate content

    I will be honest I have never used Cordyceps before, but on a board I used to frequent a lot of people were huge fans of this supplement.

    You might also keep an eye out for Cardiotryx which Matt and Southland are bringing out. You can read about it in the Southland company forums, but I have no idea how close it is to seeing the light of day.

    I'll look into that in a bit.

    Eventually I will get better at the cardio I just have to stay consistent. I need to do a swim test and another agility test so time is of the essence.

    You could buy one? They dont cost too much. And if you dont have a spot on the ground you can hit you can get an old car tyre and hit that. However you dont have to use a sledge hammer, be inventive a broom would work, but i like somthing heavier. Suppliments are not the answer here though as by the sound of it, you just need to work on cardio. If youve never done much you can hardly expect to be great at it. I gotta admit though if i didnt play basketball i would never be inspired to do cardio.

    Go with SNS Citrulline malate. It is proven to increase aerobic work capacity in humans. Nitrates in the form of Pump-Bol and COP (SNS or Epharm brand) may also help.

    Yea dude but not a real drastic effect... I bet it would almost go unnoticed if you didn't add in the placebo effect.

    Run Hemavol+Beta Alanine and you should see some great results, I know that combo worked great for my endurance.

    Body Octane is also another great option for this area.

    Simply I would say Beta Alanine would be the most cost effective and adding that to something with a good dose of Cit Mal (6-8 grams), LCLT/GPLC, and/or Nitrates is the way to go IMO.

    I think Epimedium with 20-40% Icariin content helps me the best with improved breathing during endurance activities. Examples of products with high does would be the original Bioforge V1 and CEL PCT Assist.

    Supplement wise: Icariin Extract 40% or higher (you'll need 250mg-500mg of actives to get a decent endurance effect), Cordyceps Extract 7% or higher, Creapure, Beta Alanine, Citrulline Mallate, ALCAR, and anything else that can help with ATP production or recycling

    These are all supplements I have used and know for a fact increase cardio endurance. I can't say for sure regarding Agmatine but I am about to test that theory myself as I have some on the way and have been wanting to try it for cardio endurance and/or its possible analgesic benefits.

    Other than that, pace yourself and make sure your are using good form when you run. You should be aware of your foot placement, the rythym of your strides, your arms should be close to your sides and should move in sync with your strides, and try to keep a pace that will allow you to maintain steady breathing. Also do sprints to help with sudden changes in pace. This way you can make sure you keep a good pace for the majority of the 5 mins, and depending where you are for the last minute or so, you can speed up and it won't be such a shock to your body all of a sudden.

    Honestly conditioning is where you are going to see the best results. You need to get your ass out and run. People have the right idea saying sprints, especially since your test is .5 mile. Though you need variation and proper programming as well. My suggestion for you is to look up Crossfit Endurance and follow their sport specific portion of the workout. You can still lift any which way you want, then do CFE's run workout 3 hours before or after lifting. I have ran races from 5k up to full marathons following it while lifting 5x5 and such. In fact I just ran a half marathon yesterday.

    Yeah it's wild, there's people that look horrible and are killing me in running. I was def one of those people not made to run that's for sure.

    I'll be taking some of this advice and applying it as well. Not only do I want to drop some of this bf, but I'm not giving up on my goal of joining a Police force. Here, the run portion of the PT is a mile and a half in 15 minutes. I know I can handle every other portion of the test, just gettin my cardio on point to do that run. Good luck on your test Aaron. I'm in the same boat as you when it comes to running, but I'm sure we can both conquer it.
    I can do all this through Him who gives me strength.

    I also do this routine where i swing a sledge hammer 10 times on each arm into the ground as hard as i can> do 20 star jumps> then a shuttle run for 30 metres and back. I keep repeating thsi cycle for 10-20 min. You can push as hard as you want to or back off when you need to and the sledge hammer gives your lungs a break, works your muscles and keeps your heart rate high. It gets you in shape fast. id recomend this for fastest results.
    This is just like wt lifting . . . supps will help you get stronger . . . IF you train hard.

    If you want to improve your endurance/cardio fitness supps will help a bit, but you have to follow the training regiment to get results.

    Last year I implemented endurance supps for my tri training: cit mal, ba, , creatine, & cordyceps

    I'm pretty sure you guys could do 1.5 miles in 15 minutes if your job depended on it... I haven't run long distances in years but I do sprint and play tennis so I guess I'm not a total "tank" but I'm pretty sure if you told me no money unless you can do this, I'd get it done in less than 15.

    Completing it was one thing.... Just not being in the pack was not fun at all... I'll def have to fix that. I'll make sure every gym session I'll get a good dose of cardio in; Some way shape or form.

    The 1.5 miles is the same concept, half a mine in 5 mins or less, but damn they have running for ever...

    Never heard of a perp chase lasting 15 minutes, let alone a mile and a half.... doesn't mean it didn't happen though.

    I caution against your statement of one form of cardio no matter what. Sure, other forms of cardio will have benefit. However, simple matter of fact is that the single best way to to get good at running is to in fact run. Be sure to have it as your majority form of cardio.

    Man that is just sad, if you hate doing cardio jsut imagine the benefits you'll get from it.

    strengthen your heat, lungs, brain etc..
    you'll get to have sex longer
    you'll last longer in sports, fights etc..

    man, cardio > weight lighting in my opinion.

    whats the whole point to get all big and muscular if u dont have the engine to run it?

    luckily u didnt go to the beach and played some tackle football, the biggest dude there getting gassed out looking sloppy would be even funnier hahaha



    just like someone starting out lifting weights u shouldnt touch supplements til u build a foundation.


    u dont need a track and please dont use a treadmill, a treadmill and running outside is 2 different worlds.
