I’ve made the decision to apply to be a Navy Nuclear Officer and I need to get in better overall shape. I want to have this not only as a log, but also make it open for criticism and/or to help others if they need ideas…
My diet is around 1800 calories, meats and vegetables, etc. I am taking probiotics, greens shake and krill oil supplements.
Also, I do not have a “ship” date for OCS, but the recruiter wants me at 250lbs before he starts my application process, which should take 2-3 months.
Just a little background about me: Last year I was laid off, eventually found a 3rd shift job that was decent, but after a year, it’s just about the best I am going to get right now. Around Thanksgiving of last year, I made the decision to make a serious push to lose weight. At 5’8" I was at 315bs, but in ok shape and doing crossfit 3 days week. I cleaned up the diet and started going 5 times a week, as well as doing 5/3/1. Last week at 265 lbs, I hit lifts of BS/BP/DL at 472/255/518. That being said, I’ve been stuck between 265-270ish for 6 weeks and lifting 4-5 days a week is probably not going to help. After some great discussion in another post, I settled on running plus calisthenics 3 days a week, and doing 5/3/1 on two days. Once the local HS gets out in a couple, I will work in some sprint work 1-2 times a week at the track. I haven’t run at all the past 6 months, besides a 5k like 5 months ago, which I finished in like 39 minutes. I am using the 100 push-up program, as well as the 200 sit-up program progressions.
