Being SEAL Fit is no joke. All kidding aside about balancing red balls on your nose and performing at Sea World, you have to be in seriously good shape to even be allowed to get a spot in the famous Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL training school (BUD/S). What exactly does it take to even be at the lowest rung of a SEAL? Even the lowest rung guys who make it into BUD/S are in pretty decent shape compared to most Americans.Pushups, situps, pull-ups, running and swimming are all part of the fitness test that trainees must endure to make it into a course. Instructors are looking for balance. You can't be too muscled up and heavy or you won't be able to succeed in multiple areas. If you can do pushups but can't swim, you're no good. If you can swim but can't do a pull-up, you're no good. SEAL's are asked to accomplish a wide variety of missions. You've got to be able to basically do everything. That's why SEALs are PT gods! It's interesting to see the practice be correct before the science is determined. The recent science regarding human performance states that we ought to do a variety of exercise modalities. SEALs and their predecessors (Underwater Demolitions Teams of WWII) have been churning out men with the likeness of Apollo for years before we figured it out. That's the secret of being SEAL fit.Maybe your workout has hit a drag and you're looking for a new challenge to take your fitness goals to the next level. Try hitting the top tier on all of these exercises and see how your life might be a little different. Make no mistake though, it won't be easy, and you'll probably have to get up a little bit earlier than you're actually used to. Americans by culture and profession are by far sedentary, let's change that up. We guarantee you'll get more done and have more energy once you become SEAL fit.
