    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.

  4. 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.

  6. ohh lol well i just did it anyway

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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

  10. 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

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  15. 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

  16. Damn today's workout was something else! Started timing but then stopped when i finished the first set of the man builders and kb swings. i only ended up doing 3 series, started with 35lbs, then 30lbs, and on the last one 25lbs. did the 55lb kb swing without a problem. how was yours wearedbleedbled?

  17. I did all 5 rounds in 21:17 like I said. It was tough at first to get a hang of the man makers but after the second round of them, I started moving through them pretty well.

  18. Baseline: 20 -15 -10 Burpee, O/H squat w/ PVC
    Strength / Stamina: Clean & Jerk: 8-6-5-5-3-3-1-1-1
    -----(segment)-----
    Work Capacity: Body Armor: for time with 20# vest:
    1 mile run, 100 pull-ups, 200 push-ups, 300 air squats, 1 mile run
    Durability: Active Stretch.So I forgot my O lifting shoes at home today and the Crossfit class was doing OH Squat max so I subbed some kb cleans and presses instead. The 32kg kettlebell is getting a lot easier to handle than it was a few weeks ago, always a good sign. The work capacity was a real gasser. I managed to run 8 minute miles with a 20lb vest on which is pretty good for not training a mile run other than the few times in the past 3 weeks. The vest really changes your breathing, constricts your lungs on each breath. I was gasping for air towards the end but not tired. It was a weird feeling. The rest was just a torture test, seeing how little I could rest between each rep and each exercise. Total time for the WC: 56:44 Not bad considering I don't do the crossfit style kipping pullups. It takes a while to do 100 strict pullups.

    Next week I'm going to do a deload, I'm starting to feel like I'm overreaching a bit. It will be a mix of max effort O lifts and maybe 1-2 sealfit work capacity conditioning workouts.

  19. i pulled a double shift and just could not pull through and finish them. next time

  20. cant remember the last time i would be sore for 2wks straight

    Eat more and sleep more.

  22. lost 2lbs this past weekend from drinking and no eating all night at U of I. never again. my hard work is not worth getting fcked up. stupid mistake. time to keep pushing harder. i already see a difference in my body, more toned especially my chest and shoulders.

  23. going to MEPS tomorrow. wish me luck guys

  24. Hello,
    If you want to be a Navy seal you're going to have to focus all your training for that goal. With the amount of endurance work they do, you don't need to worry about getting any bigger. You obviously need some strength, but you also need a ton of strength endurance and aerobic fitness.
    Ali.

  25. done with MEPS, now all i have to do is pass my PST and i get my contract. meeting with the seal coordinator next week

  26. wearedbleedblue, hows your workouts going
