Hi all,

I start Raleigh on the 5th of November quick question ive been cycling about 9km every other day for a week , i'm 6'4 and normally weight 95.8kg but recently weighed myself and i weigh 98.7kg bit concerned as I know the BMI limit is 28 and this would make my BMI 26.3 at Raleigh if my BMI is higher because of muscle will i get pulled up on it?

Cycling is not the way to prepare. Trainees run around HMS Raleigh. Despite the name there are no bikes.

I still can't get the point of the original question.

You have a date which is only a few weeks away, you are within the defined parameters already, why would you ask about the hypothetical situation of putting on loads of extra weight?

Just don't put on weight, seems pretty simple. :)

It would seem that there is some compulsion to ask a question, any question for those applying to join, the internet is now here so it's easy to do, requires little effort or research on their part, just type a question then in some cases (not this OP) sit back expecting someone to spend considerable time typing a reply.

haha thanks for the responses im back down to my original weight, on the question about cycling , i try to balance it out because running ruins your joints

Running doesn't ruin your joints. This is the urban legend of running.

You'll end up with mega strong knees through endurance running AS LONG AS you strengthen your hips.

Get to the gym, do some hip abduction, work on your leg strength a bit and get running. Being a cyclist, your hips should be there anyway!
