since im looking into engineering, and working off shore could be possible , i still would have to have the aceess to some weights u know, hows the gym outlook on one if ya know? if ya never been on one do you think you could do that kinda of job goiing off for weeks or months at a time? hows the eating on there, u think they would allow all your high pro deits with mass amounts of meat in the freezer. would they look in the frezer and be like "what is that whole cow"? do you know if theres any ladies that would come and visit? that would be kool

I have a few friends that are roughnecks, and well if you want to somewhat maintain your bodybuilding lifestyle, stick with In-shore drilling operations. At least that is what they tell me. Probably stand to make a little more money on off-shore rigs though. The hours are long, but at least you can go home. I considered roughnecking after college because it is PHYSICAL WORK and it seemed like it would be satisfying to put in a hard days work. On the other hand I did not bust ass in college (civil engineer) to be slaving at an oil operation. :D

Had a brother who worked off shore in LA for a year. Food is great, they had buffet open all the time as the shifts are always changing. The gym is pretty small, not much in there but you can be creative if you ned to. Not to many ladies out there either lol..

I personally never worked on one that had a gym.
I haven't roughnecked for a while though so maybe its changed a bit.

I have werked on quite a few off shore rigs in Cali., and not a one had a gym. But there is plenty of heavy lifting, if your on the deck chuckin and shucking pipe. Running the monkey tower is pretty much kick back werk lol.

I havent worked any personally but a few of my buds have...
None of them ever mentioned anything with gyms.

They did mention good food, unlimited milk, and mostly doing bodyweight exercises.
And rigging up ways to attach empty milk bottles (filled with water) for use on dips/pullups.

I guess id recommend trying to get a set of bands and see how you like those for training offshore.

Some have gyms some dont.

Almost all will feed you plenty.

Might be worth it to try and bring a pair of dumbbells and a few weights so you could adjust the dumb bells in order to do some dif workouts.
