    NAVY SEAL hopeful looking for weight lifting routine.

    Will most likely be banging out lifts in the morning. I've lifted before, but I'm not very knowledgeable on it. Looking for a workout that emphasizes on strength and stamina, maybe something that would really increase my pull ups and push ups muscle-wise besides just doing them. Also any good core workouts would be sweet, I've tried doing some research but I don't have the experience or time to figure it out myself. I'm 5'11" about 165-170lbs 11%bf if it matters, I'm also going to be doing a bit of running and swimming later in the day.

    The Navy is pretty much looking for hunks and a lot of the training is mental, but a lot of that mental stuff is based off physical stuff, so I figure I go in a running, swimming, lifting machine that can deal with cold water, and think on my feet, it won't be as bad. I'm kindly asking you guys to help me with one of these things. Make me strong /bb/.

    You better just worry about making in through Hell Week, squid. You need to focus on what you'll be doing in hell week, dips, running, swimming, pushups, pullups, etc...

    There is no short cut or easy way. If you want to get better at pull ups and push ups.... do them. A lot.

    Limit your weight training and do a lot of calisthenics, running, pullups and swimming. Also it would help to practice being sleep deprived and swimming in 50-60 degree water.

    first off mad respect for u man. my dad is retired navy and my brother is currently in italy serving in the air force. would rep if i could. butttttt yeah hell week is crazy....i would concentrate on pull ups, sit ups, push ups, and get RIDICULOUSY GOOD AT CARDIO.. run with a weight vest, holding something heavy above your head, running in sand with extra weight on u. but in reality they work u up to be able to handle the physical part, but that doesn't mean u shouldn't get ahead. its the mental part that forces ppl to drop out. if i were u i would test yourself for a week. get like 1- 2 hours day for seven days straight. if u can do that and workout hard u should be ahead of a lot of the other guys.

    EDIT: ohhh yeah swim swim swim. no lie u should swimming lessons(even if u think your a great swimmer) they will push u beyond what u can even imagine. again mad respect and good luck

    I wasn't a seal, but an Army Ranger... What got me through Ranger School was my mind....and being in GREAT cardiovascular shape, as well as having muscular endurance.


    Strength isn't as important as endurance is. but your MIND is the key. you need to spend a metric ****ton of time in the water , getting acclimatized to frigid water, lack of sleep(big one) and little food.

    so basically...you cant really prep for it. if you could, anyone could do it...and they cant.

    Water Polo players have MUCH better odds. fact

    I understand the endurance part, I just want to be an animal, and carry my weight and possibly more for my team while at BUD/S. I just feel like I lack in the strength department, and was just seeking some advice on what type of routine to have. You still have to carry the logs, boats, twin 80's on your back, treading water with those things on for like 5 minutes. It's not going to hurt me to lift weights and get stronger, I'm still going to be doing calisthenics, a lot of running, and a lot of swimming. I don't think it's broscience that with weight training my tendons and ligaments are getting stronger as well and that will prevent injuries. At least that's how I feel, thanks for the pointers guys.

    Actually was just looking at lifting stats, and the 6 exercises they have listed there are like basic and seem good, how would I go about doing that during the week? Bench Press, Squats, Bicep Curls, Overhead Press, Deadlifts, Barbell Rows.

    I'm of the opinion that (weighted) chinups and dips are also "key lifts". Bicep curls, not so much. Not bad at all, as a supplementary exercise, mind you. And DB rows are, IMO, just as good as the BB kind. Likewise, DBBP, if you want to emphasise the chest more. Lunges and stepups are good too. Hanging leg raises (weighted, even). GHRs...

    Gets to be quite the list.

    As for where they go in the week, that's up to you. Alternatively, just pick a solid routine, and stick with it, adding more weight either according to the plan, or simply when you're able.

    You can't really train for it. You can, in a general sense, be in good cardio shape, etc...but I guarantee that when it gets rough(and it will often) you wont be saying "man, those squats or bench presses really gave me the edge, golly!!!"

    it is about being mentally tough and having a special quality that makes you stand out from the rest of the candidates. you cant train for it.....as i said, if it were that easy, anyone could do it.

    there were 5-6 enormous tremendously strong guys in Ranger School with me. two of them were college football players. all but one of them BOLOd and quit. they didnt have the mental fortitude.


    you need to be training your mind. do pushups and situps , swim, and run...but if your mentality is off, NONE of that **** matters. Physicality doesn't mean that much in the long run. they arent looking for the strongest, fastest....they are looking for the guy that never quits, who will die trying.

    I too am a hopeful SEAL.

    Visit http://www.sealswcc.com/ and read up. Follow the PTG provided on the site, as it is tailored to get a average enlistee ready for BUDs. Go on the forum on the site and read. There are a lot of people on there that have contracts and post their training, and what helped them succeed and get contracts. The octavist is correct, you can't train for Hellweek or any aspects BUDs, because you just don't know, you just have to experience it. The PTG is meant to give the best chance of getting through BUDs, there is no guarantee.

    If you are really committed the one thing I have heard multiple times from retired/current SEALs, is to make small milestones, such as making it to the next meal and so on. Don't look too much in the future, don't say I am going to make it through Hellweek, instead say i will make it to the next evolution, after you make it to that say you will make it to the next.
