This is a full-length Navy SEAL workout filmed at the Naval special warfare center in San Diego. Navy SEALs are famous for their physical fitness because they need it to do their jobs well. As the instructor in this 50-minute workout video says: “Navy SEALS conduct special operations and clandestine operations that require SEALs to be in top physical condition to succeed and survive at their missions.”
So this workout is not just for looking good on the beach or getting great abs, it’s for real-world strength, endurance, and performance.
* Remember, training should be PROGRESSIVE. So don’t rush into trying to complete this rigorous workout if you are not already in good shape. If you are working up to a high level of fitness, then perhaps split this workout up into parts that you do on different days. Once you can do this whole workout (impressive!), then the SEAL instructor in the video recommends that you do it twice a week with a running or swimming program.
And please, stop if you are feeling sick or nauseous.
