I'm sure this has already been discussed on a forum somewhere on this webiste but I was unable to locate it. If so I appoligise for beating the dead horse.
Let me start by explaining myself. I am 26 years old & well over 300 pounds of not much muscle. I have always been a larger guy, even in high school playing football under a coach who was also a Marine & lives to PT. My entire life I have been involved in public saftey such as Volunteer Firefighter, EMT, Ambulance Driver, Reserve Deputy Sheriff, Recovery Diver, etc. All these years my weight has never been much of a problem other than I was just a little slower than everyone else.
Latley I have noticed that it is taking a toal on my body in several different ways. Probably the most noticable is it has been the #1 contibuting factor to my failure of being a career firefighter. I have taken several department tests & even the one's I passed I was at or near the bottom of the list. I have tried several diets, spent months at the gym & track with no results.
I know a few who have done the P90X & had great results. What I want is info from the outside from firefighters who have done it & had success. Any & all info will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
