ok, so i’m enlisting in the army soon. (in singapore, enlistment is a compulsary two year thing for all able bodied males) its quite a sad thing for all lifters in singapore as once you get in, its hard to train consistenly and the food sucks( you only get let out on friday nights/saturday mornings and have to book in again on sunday night. and no protein powder allowed for the first two months ) so most guys 1) stop lifting 2) just grow weaker for those months before heading to the gym again once things in the army get easier and more relaxed.
so i dont want to grow any weaker than i already am. so any suggestions on how to maintain my strength level? ill only be training squats/deadlifts due to my elbow problem which means no overhead press/bench press. so anyone know how to train with only ONE day per week? keeping in mind that army life has all that PT, running and shit.
i was thinking 5/3/1 without all the supplemetary stuff. but i dont know how to fit in both squats and deadlifts. or should i alternate each week?
