He has a back like a roast chicken.
I moved froma regular gym to a crossfit gym a couple of weeks ago and all I can say is that it really is the way to go. The mix of high intensity cardio and strength training is in my opinion far, far superior to the "bodybuilder" model of pick up heavy thing-put it down-rest-repeat for developing fitter athletes.The RN is moving towards functional fitness, RNFT now has strength load carrying and PT classes are moving towards circuit training like CrossFit etc. Bodybuilding, while fine for those that wish to partake does often mean that you have an individual who is less fit (CV wise) or not even able to perform certain generic tasks (DC/FF).
I'm sorry, were you talking about bodybuilding or field gun?The issue for the Navy with bodybuilders who go to excess is they become a liability for damage control/firefighting. Basic stuff of not fitting in the gear to those with massive lats etc not being able to do simple tasks as their muscle formation restricts them from lifting above the shoulder level to hit wedges etc.
I understand the RM has the same issue but again functional related to load carry and CV issues.

Plus there becomes that fine line over supplements and the affects they have. What if you can't get your supplements and end up buying local on deployment - how sure are you they are legal. And obviously steroids can be an issue.
That is not to say it is not possible, there are RN personnel who compete but they tend not to be on the very large/well defined side as training is harder to achieve with the equipment and time limitations.
For the OP it is possible but you must understand that the Navy has many restrictions that may stop you.
No difference really I used to have a big powerful upper body, l let the training slip and so did my chest by about 2 foot scales still say the same, so all those years in a gym working up a sweat, should have spent more time working on plnt liftingWhen he says body building I thing he means muscle rather than mass
