How should I adjust my diet and fitness routine if I’m switching to a more active job?
Currently I exercise 5 days a week and strength train 2-3 days a week. I am an 18 year old female, normal weight, and I eat about 1600-1800 calories to maintain my weight. Right now I have a lightly active job, but later I’ll be switching to a kind of physical job requiring lifting, squatting, being on my feet. I don’t want to losw weight, I want to maintain my weight but also my fitness levels.
I tried the diet but the results were disappointing, until finally I got advice from friends, and the results were amazing, I truly felt the weight loss, and is very safe for health, you can try it
What will be the next feminist excuse to keep female PT standards lower in the military?
Now since females can do any job in the military (including combat), they have the same rights and privileges.
But they don’t have the same responsibilities. APFT standards for women are still lower. ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Army_Physical_Fitness_Test#Standards )
So what’s the excuse?
And don’t say the females are generally smarter than males, and therefore useful to the military that way. If the military wanted smarter people they could have raised the ASVAB (military IQ test) scores required for the MOSs (jobs).
To me it looks like the military has to dance to the Political Correctness beat, enforcing a system of equal-outcome-affirmative-action. Bunch of weak females wrongfully stealing the jobs the males would have performed better in.
We’ll talk about selective service obligations in another question.
@yacoffee : He’s speaking only about females in combat roles. Not about females in the military in general. Seriously, how dumb can you be?
I don’t get it and other countries have figured it out:
If a job has certain physical requirements, you should have to meet those requirements. Gender shouldn’t enter into it. Those standards are there in order to ensure the job is done effectively and safely. As a woman, I would not want to enter a job where the physical fitness requirements were lower for me than for a man doing the same job. That sets me up to be dead weight and possibly to get hurt.
Edited to add:
@LifeIsGrand. The comment in the article is that the standards are set for the job not for the person applying for it. I have not done thorough research of every part of the military everywhere (I’m not in the military) but my point remains the same.
If a job requires certain physical skills then anyone holding the job should have those skills. Different standards for men and women means that either men are being held to higher requirements than necessary or women are not being held to standards that are high enough for them to be able to do the job adequately and safely.
That’s why the standards should be for the job not the applicant.
Physical fitness to teach primary children?
What level of physical fitness is required to teach Key Stage 1 and Foundation children. What are the physical demands of the job? Would anyone with mobility, lifting, carrying, kneeling and bending issues be to cope with the demands of the job and could they or the children in their care be considered at risk of personal injury?
I don’t think there’s a requirement… But it is physically demanding you have to be prepared to bend to be at the children’s height and be on your feet most of the day. Some people may ask you to lift things.
Why are there so many fat and out of shape police officers?
For a job potentially requiring a lot of physical activity, should there be higher standards for police officers? I see so many that I doubt could even run a mile.
Some departments don’t have as stringent rules about weight and fitness as others do. In my area, I’d just be happy if we HAD some officers! Our Sheriff and Police departments have been shrunk down to practically no officers in the field at all. Crime is on the rise and the citizenry has had to arm itself for protection because of it.

I’ll answer one because I saw it up there and it was wrong! Gasp! Hehe… And that’s that a physical trainer or a physical training fitness instructor can be an athletic trainer. They’re not the same. An athletic trainer can work as a physical trainer as they have way more training, but a physical training fitness instructor cannot work as an athletic trainer because they don’t have the same school/license etc…
1.) Certificate/License: —-> Athletic Trainer
Requirements: —-> BA in a CAATE (The Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education) institute. Pass the BOC (Board of Certification) which allows the Athletic Training Student to become certified. They must then satisfy their state requirement (for example in Minnesota you need to register with the Board of Medical Practice). CPR/AED is required as well as continuing education credits (otherwise you lose your license).
Potential Jobs: —-> Personal trainer at a gym, Athletic Trainer for events, high school, collegiate, professional level. Work in the clinical setting, work in sales (such as selling equipment), work in the military, etc…
