  1. ROM drills are mobility work. Don't worry about that too much right now. Pistols are one legged bodyweight squats. You can do them from a box until you get the hang out it. HSPU is a handstand push up. You just do a handstand against a wall and push yourself up and down.

    You need a rowing machine/ergometer to do the rowing. I'm not sure where you workout but almost every gym has at least one rower.


  2. ok so im really getting frustrated because my POS gym doesn't have the **** i need to do most of my workouts. couldnt do the rows today because there is no row machine. no jump rope. and the list goes on. i go to xsport express so the fckin place is small as **** and has limited equipment. i think im going to start looking for a new gym. i usually go after work so i need something 24hrs but dont want to pay like 50 a month at lifetime. im gonna check out cardinal.

    Thats very excessive. If you are exercising and eating well you don't need more than 1g/lb of protein. I get by with less than that on a regular basis and I'm actually adding mass.

  8. 21-15 -9 Pull-ups, Push-ups, Squats
    Means a set of 21 of each, a set of 15 of each, and then a set of 9 of each, all bodyweight.

    Strength: Work to 1RM Bench Press (BP)

    Stamina: Chipper: 15 x BP @ 80% 1RM, 100 x SDHP (75#), Shoulder Mobility Drills
    Work to your 1RM of the day and then take 80% of that and do 15 total bench presses and 100 total sumo deadlift high pulls YouTube - Sumo Deadlift High Pull Courtesy CrossFit Inc.

    Work Capacity: 5RFT:

    * 15 Curtis P (105#), run 400
    For this you go through this sequence 5x as quickly as possible. So you do 15 curtis p and then run a 400. Repeat it 4 more times. A curtis p is YouTube - SEAL Fit Curtis P. You do 15 of them for a set.

    Durability: Sprints: 1 min max effort, 1 min rest, 10 rounds. Breath Control practice and Stretch 15 minutes.

  9. Glad to see u doing this mxmatt

  11. Baseline: Run 400M. 4 rounds Bar Bell Complex 75 - 105#. Run 400M

    I got 15 rounds of the work capacity and I worked up to a 195lb thruster.
    I subbed 3 towel pullups for each rope ascent, so 9 each round. I used a 30lb sandbag and a 35lb kettlebell for the carries.

    The stamina part was supposed to be done at an easy pace. What did you work up to on the 1RM squat?

    I did 2-3 reps of squats then some box jumps nice and slow but each one explosive. To me, the hardest part was the 800m farmers walk holding 28kg kettlebells. I broke that in to 4 200m walks.

  14. that wasn't at an easy pace. maybe im just really slow. i thought i did them pretty fast. what was your time

    The timed part was the "Diane" workout of 21-15-9 HSPU and deadlifts. The rest should be done at a leisurely pace. Only the Work Capacity section needs to be timed.

  16. ohh lol well i just did it anyway

  17. Today's workout:

    Baseline: ROM Drills then 100 double unders AFAP


    Work Capacity: Daniel:
    50 x Pull-ups
    400 meter run
    21 Thrusters (95#)
    800 meter run
    21 x Thrusters (95#)
    400 meter run
    50 Pull-ups
    Durability: Rest 10 minutes. Then: Sprints 12 x 100M (:15 interval). 2 x 3 min plank hold. Active Stretch.

    Finished in 19:52. I think this was the most brutal workout yet. Mental toughness is not where it needs to be yet, found myself quitting on the thrusters and resting too much after the runs.

  18. Baseline: 5 Rope Ascents - 15 Body Thrusters (55# KB) - 800 m Run
    Strength: 1 RM WPU ( Weighted Pull Up)
    Stamina: 5 Rounds : 3 X WPU ( @ 85% of 1RM), 15 X DB Push Press ( 35lbs.), PVC Shoulder Drills
    -----(segment)-----
    Work Capacity: Teams of 3 for time: 5 Rounds: Man Makers (35lbs.), KB Swings (55lbs.), 400 M run (Notes)
    Durability: 100 x 4 count Flutter Kicks, 100 x atomic Situps, 1 Mile cool down Run
    Notes: Option to do WOD in two sessions. New to SEALFIT?...read this . Equipment: Rope, 2 x 35# or 40# DumbBells, Pulll-up bar, PVC pipe, 55# Kettle Bell. This workout is dedicated to an individual who everyday motivated and inspired the men at SEALFIT Academy class 5. He was a class act and it was sad to see him go after the Basic Camp. Jim Rutan we thank you. Notes for WC: with a three man team the reps are determined by the runner. Perform Max reps for exercise until runner returns from the 400M, then switch exercises until all three teammates have done all three exercises. Do this four more times. Individuals your rep count will be 10 Man Makers, 20 KB Swings. Body Thruster: Perform an 8 count body builder with a Kettle Bell thruster on the up movement. If you can't figure this out then do a burpee followed by a KB thruster. Atomic situps -keep your legs and chest elevated (the body should be in a "V" position) and simultaneously crunch your upper body and bring your knees to your chest, then return to the "V" position...this equals one rep.

    I won't have a team so I'll be doing them the way they describe it.

  19. is that suppose to be done the same day, after the segment? I found todays workout to be pretty easy except torwards the end of the pulls ups. felt like my arms were gonna fall off. and then the sprints, different story

  20. So ive noticed that ive lost a little bit of mass, mainly on my arms. so i was thinking of doing one week crossfit and the next heavy weight and low rep workouts. i dont feel like these work outs are really stimulating my bi's or tri's. Without a doubt good for legs and chest

  21. The Navy doesn't care about how big your arms are. They want endurance and performance. Alternating crossfit weeks with heavy weeks is a bad idea given what is needed for your military career. You need to quit thinking like a bodybuilders and quit worrying about things like your "bi's and tri's" if you want to be successful in making into and through special forces training.

  22. yea your right, i felt like a dumbass after writing that when i started to think about it. the strange thing is that i had a hard time putting on weight and now recently i went from 165 to just kept building. i started gaining towards the end of my low rep high weight workouts. i started running, swimming, and now doing the sealfit workouts and im still gaining. 176lbs taken monday, pretty close circumstances as i usually have when i weigh in. this is mostly likely to do quitting smoking, after i stopped i just couldn't ever seem to stay full for long.

  23. Segment means minimum 10 minute break but ideally 5+ hours apart. I do the 10 min break. I got +65lbs for my 1RM on pullups (i suck at pullups) and I did the work capacity in 21:17. You said yesterday's workout was easy, what was your time?

    Sometimes it's hard to break out of a certain way of thinking. Despite the claims of some it's impossible to be big and strong and super lean and have great muscle endurance and have great aerobic fitness all at the same time. For most of us mere mortals we have to sacrifice a bit in one area to excel in another area. With the type of strength endurance and fitness required for special forces your absolute maximum strength and muscle size are not going to be optimal. Just like a powerlifter trying absolutely maximize his strength will have to comprise some anaerobic endurance and aerobic fitness.

  25. yea its just hard to switch my way of thinking because i was trying to gain mass for a while and now im gonna be doing almost the opposite
