with regards to officer-specific MOS/warfare qual in the navy/marine corps, that choice pretty much determines your ENTIRE LIFE- where you are stationed, what our job is, your hours, etc… i assume you’re not previously enlisted, so you should now know that the corps will post you wherever, whenever, and it is your duty to do your job subject to the needs of the navy/marine corps etc. powerlifting is a hobby and a personal issue. time management will be key for you to keep doing both well.
you must pass the PRT as a marine. if you have a severe running problem, you will fix it.
most bases have good gyms and some form of PL team, or if you pursue comissioning through the naval academy, they have a powerlifting team. of course, that is quite a big switch, since you’re already at college. PM me for more on admissions to USNA, which commissions for the USN and USMC.
all the best!
I totally understand that the corps will be the most important thing in my life; I was just asking the advice of others who might have a similiar experience if competitive powerlifting was doable.
Also, I am 100% confident that I will pass the PRT with flying colors. Though I am a powerlifter, I am not bulky. I am actually a natural runner, so the things that concern me most are not physical, but time management. Thanks for the advice!
It’s the PFT not the PRT in the Corps, lol
You can do it man, just might take a little more time.
The biggest thing will be on what MOS you end up getting. If you’re a Grunt, you will be in the field alot, in the field= No Lifting while in the field. So shit like that. I’m not an O but I am not sure how much lifting will be feasible when going through TBS. ROTC will get you out of OCS but you still will have to go through 6 months of what I am sure is some pretty intense shit at TBS.
