Bodybuilding in the Navy?

Ok guys my hobby is to bodybuild and I really want to join the navy. So what you do about dieting and trainning when you are away. Is there a way to keep eating clean and is it possible to use supplements whilst you are away? Iam looking to be a mine specialist, I know their boats are very small and I would think no gyms on them? Any feedback would be much appreciated.

I have asked a similar question before, as a general rule the bigger the ship the better the sport / gym facilities ... I know the type 45s have a few free weights kicking about not sure about the countermeasure vessels though, maybe somebody serving on one can clear this up for you

You've got absolutely no chance of eating clean at sea.

Yeah I thought that, it seems to be like burgers and chips and shit like that. I think thats a joke how a so called " fighting force " runs of this shit.
The diet at sea is turd but in defence of our friendly, helpful, hygienic chefs, it does do what it needs which is fuel you adequately. Scran is just as bad in that respect across all the forces but then we're fueling fighters, not trying to keep their body fat below 12%.

Save the cutting for leave.

Yes there are options and it's not all burgers and chips. On a submarine our cookie boys still managed to offer up more than one choice per meal, even at the end of a patrol when scran was running out.

Rule of thumb is the smaller the ship/boat the less scran carried so less choices at scran time.

Where have you got this chips with everything bollocks from?

You can get on a "tour" where you will come back bereft of body fat, and be part of a fighting force. The "D" plan diet is notorious......:D

I would probably be more concerned about whether they have any weights on board to start with the diet isn't as important that can be picked back up when onshore, however you might find it hard going back to a 200kg squat when you haven't lifted for 7 months

Bodybuilding or not I still dont want to eat frys and chips for 6 months on tours. Is there no healthy option?
There are other options. It's not all school dinners but don't expect plain boiled chicken breast with a cup of brown rice and a bowl of soy nuts.

I seem to remember there was talk of starting a RN Bodybuilding team, based down at Pompy, non deploying type job, replacing the Boxing Squad. Something about about the competitive sport of body building being more relevent to the modern RN "fighting force", and some new thoughts on "Prod A" in warmer climes. :biggrin:
