So I joined the Air National Guard in October, and I’ll probably be leaving for training around summertime. My worry is that during training I’ll lose some muscle mass and progress that I’ve gained over the past year and a half.
From what I know about the training, guys who just got out have told me they work out in the morning by either running and sprinting, or doing bodyweight exercises and there is no gym for trainees on base. The air force feeds you Well and I’ll get plenty of food, but I won’t get much sleep. The training is 8.5 weeks long, and then I have tech school for 3 months.
Tech school will be easier as after our duties for the day are over we are allowed to do whatever, so while most people will be going to the club’s I’ll be in the gym.
My main question is that is there anything I could do to prepare myself and limit the damage done in those 2 months of no lifting?
