Re: Vibram Five Fingers (VFF)

It took me a few minutes to get each one on (does that ever get quicker?!?) I had the toughest time getting my pinky toe and the one next to it in for a while. So it really depends on your feet. Having the socks on first does make it much easier to get the "shoes" on. Interesting, I find that havin...

Re: Vibram Five Fingers (VFF)

I took a stab at repairing the soles on my Five Fingers yesterday. I had put a hole in one toe by wearing through the sole and the layers under it and the forefeet were becoming noticeably thinner than the rest of the sole. Also, there were some tears along the sides of the toes. I got a Stealth Pa...

Re: Physical fitness

You really do not burn fat while exercising. You use glycogen and aminos during exercise. It is during the metabolic boost, post-training where you will yield the fat burning effects, as your depleted muscles will then draw upon your stored energy (fat) to replenish. Fat is the primary source for e...

Re: Physical fitness

^ Yes, I realized rest is very important so I popped a couple of Advil and used hot and cold packs on my arms, I have almost normal range of motion in them again just some slight tightness left. Hopefully by tonight they'll be well enough for work (carrying lots of plates). I actually haven't worke...

Re: EMS And CPR news

If that's your reason for going bvm why not do compression only cpr? Huh? You got me a bit confused on that one. I was talking in general here. What are you talking about? When I am working then I have several other responders to do compressions so I don't need to. I could use the BVM. Off duty I w...

Re: EMS And CPR news

Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't one person bvm less effective than a pocket mask? So says the book, but further away from a dirt bags puke hole the better say me! They say it is hard to get an effective seal with one hand on the BVM but I see it work. Use the pocket mask for someone you care for,...

Re: EMS And CPR news

I agree. Until I get a mask....I am hands only (even though I am an EMT....poor of me not to have a mask yet :P ) Lerdal makes the "mouth condom" I keep one in my glove pouch. it is basically a $2 piece of plastic sheet with a valve and I give one out with each CPR class I teach. Ok so they are $3-...

Re: If you have to bug in....

Multi-Point locking door http://www.securitech.com/D01-mp-police-lock.html . No idea how it compares to other devices, such as a katy bar. That's quite nice. I'd prefer this compared to say a katy bar because its not something extra you have to do. From what I understand one key would make all 4 po...
