I just recently met with a recruiter for the Air National Guard, and I have decided to join as a part-timer in order to help pay for grad school as well as pay off bills, which only entails that I work for them 1 weekend a month and, at some point in the year, 15 consecutive days.
As soon as I sign the papers (I haven’t yet, but I will), I have 1 year to begin basic training, which is 2 months long. After this is training for your specific job that you will perform while you serve your time, but it’s more like job hours than anything for you only work 8 hours a day then, so I could work out as well as maintain a proper diet and whatnot I am sure.
My ideal time to do the basic training would be some time next year during the summer. By that time, I will have gone through one steroid cycle. I only get 3 meals a day there (which means not very many calories or a steady flow of protein and nutrients), and there might be no actual weightlifting done while at training, just “conditioning”.
Basically I will be doing long hours of running around and doing exercises that won’t really strengthen me and .
If you’ve ever heard the phrase, that while at any military basic training, “the big guys get small and the small guys get big”, then you will understand my fear. I am afraid that I am going to lose muscle during this time because after my cycle, I could be pushing 250 - 260 at single digit BF% if all goes well.
That is an awful lot of mass to preserve when conditions are suboptimal. I was wondering if there would be any possibility of maintaining this muscle mass with a mild gear cycle that is not necessarily for gaining muscle, but preventing catabolic effects.
I am not saying that gear is a necessity, but I am wondering if it would be a viable option.
Would Clen be an option to take there? The time I would spend at basic training would be the months that I would cut, so I could use the daily grind of basic training to my advantage and get ripped while I am there.
Basically, I am looking to take an 8 week oral cycle, and if there is any steroid out there that doesn’t cause shutdown and is anti-catabolic, then that would be preferred. If it is possible to avoid shutdown, then I would prefer to go that route.
If not, I could take HCG with me and use it in the 5,000IU dosage every 5 days and reduce, etc etc at the end of those 8 weeks for PCT.
Pills would be the easiest to sneak in if they search your luggage. Do basic training camps search luggage? If they do, can I hide them or even just crotch them in a baggie. BCAA’s and supplements I am sure would help as well and if I could get by with those, then great.
Maybe if I just stuff myself while I am at basic training, then I won’t lose muscle mass. Injectables could work, but it would be much harder to sneak in all those needles, the vials and other stuff. Regardless, leave your ideas about injectable options as well so that I am not closed-minded.
Help me out guys! What do you think? Will supplements save me or will I have to grab a little bit of gear in order to make this work? Sorry for the long-winded post. It’s kinda all over the place, but you get the idea.
PS: Forgot to mention that I want to use this time to help cut for a show. I really think that I could make it on time if I do this stuff right while I am at basic training.
