I’m going into the force for a major city in october. And i was hoping to ask a couple officers here(if any) and other ppl on the forum about thoughts on the force.
With all the outta shape cops out there, it makes me think that it has less to do with their laziness, and more to do with overtime taking away their free time to lift.
and juicing… I remember a mens health article a while back about how alot of cops juice. Now behind the blue curtain cops watch out for one another, but the dea is a different story. I’d prefer coops to juice but thats just me.[/quote]
One thing is with the shifts as long as they are ~ you don’t necessarily have the convenience of eating healthy all the time. Sometimes and a lot of times you only have whats available at the gas station or convenience store.
What I recommend to my friends in the force is prepping meals ahead of time and having 1-2 coolers in the trunk with prepared meals, sandwiches, snacks, drinks, shakes - That and of course making the time to workout.
But eating is the easiest way for an in-shape guy to start slipping and sliding. Those habits and the infrequent quality of the nutrition have repercussions overtime and can lead to a drop in quality of life.
