To those of you who raised your right hand and vowed to protect this country, I thank you and your families for the sacrifices you make everyday. This one here is about being away with little means for comin home with that body you want.
Those of us that live on a ship during deployment know how difficult it can be to get the proper nutrition you need, cuz lets face it galley food aint that healthy and it's LOADED with calories, bad carbs, and tons of unhealthy greases and fats.
Lets not even mention the typical gym equipment that somewhat resembles a prison yard... Missing dumbells, lack of plates, and those assholes that (despite acting like gargantuan beasts) really have no idea what they are doing aside from taking up perfectly usable workout equipment.
I've been doing a pretty damn good job so far since I've been away.
I work night shift so I'm only presented with two meals during the times I am awake (midnight and breakfast)
So here it is:
Wake up:Musclemilk casein shake and my multi
Snack:Probably another muscle milk shake or a protein bar from a friend
Midnight Meal:The healthiest most protein rich food they are serving (which still sucks in comparison to the awesome foods I could be getting from home) and some form of good carbs (such as whatever veggies they happen to maybe put out, if at all, otherwise it's just rice or wheat bread)
Snack:Musclemilk shake (see the unnerving trend here?)
Breakfast:4 hardboiled eggs (whites only) and some fruit (I love when they actually put out grapefruit but it's probably going to be an apple) and oatmeal if they happen to be serving it.
WORKOUT TIME! YES! PWO: Whey shake with some BCAAs and Creatine.
Pre-Bed:You guessed it...musclemilk baby...
And that's the damn routine day in day out.
Workout goes like this: (Solid state 30 min cardio everyday that doesn't list cardio)
Sun:Abs and Cardio (Usually some HIIT or I rest...I usually dont get much sleep)
Tues:Chest and Back
Weds:Shoulders and Arms
Thurs:Abs and Cardio
Sat:Upper body blast
If any of you have any suggestions or inputs I'd love to hear them.
Thanks for all of you that support what myself and others do, I know there's a lot of you out there who put yellow ribbons on your vehicles or support our troops stickers and trust me...when we see it, it means a lot more to us than you can ever possibly know...
