My At Sea Deployment regimen Log. SEA WARRIOR WORKOUTS, and discussion. Go Navy!!
So, I have been at sea 2 months (plus) now.
I have been in the Navy 15 years now. 36 years old. current weight somewhere around 225. You cant use a scale on a rocking ship.
I am a Damage Controlman 1st class. in case anyone wants to know. I am an NPC bodybuilder. I will be logging my workouts for those wondering how to train on the ships to stay in shape. Can you get bigger on a Destroyer like I am on? Possibly, it depends on your schedule and how committed you are. Sometimes mail is slow, and you may run out of things, but I get food 4 times daily.
Today, Sunday 26 June 2011
Got up around 11am Holiday routine
I ate a decent meal
on watch now till 5pm I ate a banana and PB &J sandwhich while on watch
DINNER is going to be a big meal and pre workout meal
Chest tonight 1830, or 6:30 pm which will be DB press, push ups, pec deck flyes and dips. I will record numbers later.
Energy is good today.
Sleep was around 8 hours. I woke up twice.
Stress is minimal
Coffee was terrible.
I am sampling a new supplement by ALLMAX nutrition today called RAZOR 8. It should be good stuff. I may not sleep much haha
Everyday supps are: Now ADAM Multi, but will be switching to ORANGE TRIAD
NP Brand CLA
NP Brand GABA 3 GM
Greens powder, but just ran out.
Protein blend whey, casien, egg
TT-33 as needed for thermogenic. I will use today.
Anabolic Pump for high carb meals.
I am waiting for my Fish oil, creatine, and more protein to come in the mail.
I will be doing 45 minutes cardio following weights. It saves me laundry by doing it at one workout.
More to follow.

"Can you get bigger on a Destroyer like I am on?" Most absolutely! You can do anything if you're determined enough to find a way around all obstacles.
Nothing wrong with doing post-weights cardio and only "one" training session - I actually prefer doing that as well
All the best for your next competition!

Thanks Rosie. Youre right. I am corrected. I have had many obstacles, and somehow managed to work thru them all. God has been a big help too.
So tonight I have eaten my last meal of a chicken breast and watermelon.
Now time for my vitamins, and 2 scoops of BCAAs. I will also have 3gm GABA before bed.
I used the RAZOR 8 PWO today for the first time.
The stim amount is too much for a pre workout for me, I got plenty of energy, and the thermogenic effect was evident during cardio, but I prefer more pump increasing ingredients. I also do a lot of evening workouts ,and this has me up at 130 am. Haha, its late. I have to be up at 0615.
Oh well, nap time tomorrow if I can.
Tomorrow is back day.

I'm in the Navy too so I'll be following this log. I hate the food in the galley. It's so hard to keep proper nutrition on a ship. What ship are you on btw?

I am on the USS Howard DDG 83. Thanks I will try not to disappoint you. I forgot to include I am also using a natural test booster called

My greens powder is gone now.
I had some scrambled eggs this morning with turkey sausage 3 links

Post training I had 50 gm whey Iso, 1 svg peanut butter, 1 fuji apple, and 80 calories of dried fruit. Sounds good huh? It is.
More to come. Leave it all on the field. .....

Sorry for the break. I am in port Phillipines now, and had to get off this ship and get some R&R.
I weighed in Tuesday at 224. I passed the Body fat
and ate some cheesecake to reward myself.
I had been training everyday to get ready for weigh ins, and my advancement results to come out. I am trying to get advanced to E-7.
My supplements came in the mail. I received my weigh and blended protein.
Nitro Core 10 by ON,
CONTROLLED LABS Orange Triad

Stress: not bad lately. will get worse soon.
Sunday will be another day off, and Monday will be a training day with a heavier workout, and less cardio than I had been doing, or I will keep cardio going strong. I will just eat more calories than I had been eating due to weigh ins. I am still waiting for 2 packages. One has 30 cans of tuna, or chicken in it, and one has my Controlled labs stuff in it for my Log. Yes stay tuned for that. It will be awesome. More to come.

Sleep 2 hours lastnight, a nap coming up. watch 10pm -2am and then sleep till 8 am tomorrow.
as far as training goes we have a tiny little closet, but it was all we needed today. we took the door off and now people can see us as they walk by. Kind of a motivator.
Tomorrow is Legs. Its time to rest up.

A short and very intense workout. I was shaking during part of it. Soaked with sweat too. I pour everything into each

No smith machine. we have a barbell I can borrow and take outside that has up to 165 pounds available, but we were not allowed outside today. There is a lot of adjustments that have to be made at random times. I may work arms tonight after my watch.
Diet. I have had 3 meals today. I am current on my vitamins today too. I will take my ANIMAL STORM tonight after arms. before and after.
I was pumped today for sure, and really got the intensity going. More to come.

The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.

Stress: moderate. A good day for out here.
Training: Chest, Shoulder, Biceps

3 sets of Incline DB Press 80x12 90x12, and 90x10 When the ship is rocking every other rep feels like a lot more.

Superset decline push ups, with DB shrugs 100x12 3 sets
Triple set side cable laterals with cable curls, with dips (bodyweight) 12 reps
This was a good workout for out here. I did not do cardio, but will be playing sports tomorrow with a foreign navy for a few hours.
I was very pumped, and vascular.
I took ANIMAL STORM and USP LABS BCAA post workout with some extra glutamine.
Diet: I put 4-5 meals down yesterday. Not too bad. I am very sore from leg day. It may not seem like much, but I dont often get the chance to train legs. The seas get so rough where we are during monsoon season its hard to find enough stability. we do not have any leg machines or leg press. I just do what i can. More to come.
07-10-2011, 01:17 AM

100LB DB rows 12 reps each set
seated cable rows. whole stack 3 sets of 12-20 reps
I had to leave after this.
I am bulking again so calories are up. I cannot weigh myself at sea so I dont know if I have gained weight, but I will write about any size gains I can see. Friday I did not train, but we took on 34 pallets of stores and my arms were cramping after moving all those boxes so I did not train yesterday. Today is legs again. Hooyah
07-10-2011, 11:40 PM
SLEEP: 7 hours very nice.
Stress: Low today.
Squats 4 sets 135x20, 135x20, 135x12, 135x12. Its all the weight I had to use.
Lunges 3 sets up the focsle 20 paces total each set with a 5 gallon canister of fluid above my head.
3 sets box jumps 12 reps each set
3 sets straight leg deads 12 reps each
Its not much compared to being in the home gym, but it keeps me going.
I love the CONTROLLED LABS ORANGE TRIAD vitamins,
I also have increased my EFA intake.
I could have used more calorie intake sunday due to sleeping in.
Food is always going to be an issue, but I am constantly working toward getting enough calories each day. Our schedule is fluid out here and things change all the time. I have a different watch everyday and Constantly have to adjust. It keeps me on my toes and helps keep me thinking of how i can do things better. More to come

Sat. Sun. Mon. Tues.
Sleep: The last few days has only been a few hours at a time.
Energy: Not the best. Enhanced with Caffiene
Stress: Not too bad.
Training: Is going well. I have done Chest, back, trapz, arms, and shoulders the last few days. The anabolic minds web site is not working for me so I e mailed my wife and asked her to post this for me. I am eating more, and a bit more smooth, but the strength and mass is starting to come back. I am so tired lately, but I am still tearing up the weights.
I will post the routines again once the website works for me again.
Ok I did it for you babe..love you
