Hey there! I am new here. I am in the process of losing weight, so I can join the U.S. Navy. Are you hoping to be part of the military? Are you in the military? Are you a veteran of the military? My intent is to gain friends here who are or have been in my position. Hopefully, we can motivate one another to reach our goals. Whatever those goals may be. Thank you, and God bless!

My husband is an officer in the airforce and just got home from a deployment.  You need to do LOTS of cardio.  Basic will be tons of running.  Also lift weights to get your strength up.  Do lots of push-ups, and sit ups, and basic will be a lot easier!

Thank you!

I'm a 1LT in the Army. If you are not already into a work routine, you need to have one. Don't start off trying to do too much. It could lead to injuries like shin splints and stress fractures. I recommend doing cardio one day and then strength on the next. Do about 30 minutes a day to start off and work your way up to an hour. I a big part of losing weight isn't working out, its about what you eat. Watch calories. Count how many you consume a day and then calculate how much you need in order too loose weight. They are numerous calculators on the web that can help you figure this out. I went on a 1100-1200 calorie diet and worked out 6-7 days a week an hour a day and lost 21 pounds in about 2-3 months. It was a strict diet, but overall I lost the weight and now my body is use to eating smaller and healthier portions. Everyone is different at losing weight so don't give up if it doesn't fall off quickly. Military do runs, push ups, and sit ups, so I do recommend doing these in your workout. Look at height and weight screening tables and what you need in order to pass a physical fitness test for your age group for the navy. Also, invest in a good pair of running shoes. You should buy 2 pairs to switch them out every 6-8 months depending on how often you run. I recommend going to an actual running store to get properly fitted. Hope this helps and good luck!

I'm a USMC veteran and currently in the army. I would personally look up the requirements for the physical fitness test. And start working your way up to a perfect score. U should do alot of running and weight lifting. If you have any questions don't be afraid to ask :) good luck

Bryan gave a real good advice on how to optimize your conditioning. I will give a try on the strenght department. Specially for a goal as being the best you while joining the navy you should see this as 1 plan. Not 2 seperate things.

First off all your goal is to train your muscles to perform in extreme situations not to grow muscles. So alot of normal gym routines wont fit your goal.

In simple words you want to conditon your muscles so they will be able to endure long and demanding challenges. The million dollar question is how to do this.

What i advice is full body circuit training. The specific excersises can be numerous. Alot will depend on the training options of your gym. But while training with weights go with arround 60% of your max 3 rep weight.

An example that i think would be a good basic circuit.
30 secs : deep squats
Max pullups in 1 set
30 sec dumbell chest press
30 secs deadlifts ( sumo )
30 secs core workout

To start do 3 rounds while only resting after completion of the circuit.

If you have really long to prepare lets say 8 months orso. I would start with olympic weightlifting pure to increase your overal strenght. And later on swith to circuit training.

Pff i feel like this information is just starting to adress the issue. But its hard to give a fully and perfect info thingy trough this board. But the main point you should get out of this is train your body to endurance and strenght. Which is hard to do hehe

25 Apr
Bryan put together what you and he suggested and came up with something that I could follow step by step. It's Mon-Thurs and I started it on Monday. It's been rough, but it's getting better. In a few weeks I'm suppose to change it up.
25 Apr

I'm in ROTC and also plan on a naval career  good choice on the navy!!
25 Apr
Any branch is a good choice :) It depends on the person which one they will enjoy being a part of.
25 Apr
Yea and if u ask me the navy is soo under rated when compared to other branches what made you won't to join the navy?
25 Apr
Well I want to join the military, because many members of my family have served. There's a very personal connection for me there. My father is a disabled veteran, and that's just one example. I want to serve my country, as they did. I hear too many people say they regret not serving. I could use the structure in my life as well. I chose the Navy, because I'd be bored in the Air Force and I'm not hard enough to be in the Army or Marines. Navy is the perfect fit for me.
26 Apr
That is the exact same reason for me! Are u in any programs like ROTC, JROTC,ect

I could never join any branche. Me and my smart mouth would be in trouble after 5 mins and fired after 10.
