So I am looking to join the infantry Reserves here in Ontario Canada while a University student. I'm hoping to get in this summer. My understanding so far is that my local unit does their BMQ (boot camp basically) over weekends and a week night/week, rather than the usual 8 weeks away. Assuming this is the case, boot camp may not be the catabolic activity it usually is for me, and I may be able to maintain some strength.
I am looking for a way to incorporate 5/3/1 (Bench, Squat, Military Press, DL) into my routine so that I can continue to improve my strength some while also upping my pushups, situps, pullups, and run time/endurance. Obviously my focus is on the body weight exercises/running. However, I have been doing just the body weight stuff, and although I have improved, I hate the feeling of losing all of my strength... and my weeks of working out just suck without weights. I don't need to be a competitive power lifter... just want to lift weights and have a respectable amount of strength.
One idea I had was to use the strength template obviously, since it has less volume than say a body building template. I could even do only two days of 5/3/1 a week. Or, I could drop either the deadlift or the squat, saving my legs some for running.
Anyone have a template, or enough experience with 5/3/1 and military training to help me put together a good plan?
