    My seal training routine


    I just made a little training routine for myself until April. I'm hoping this will get me doing a lot of push ups and get me lean with a nice cut ab look...I'm tired of having that little gut on my lower abdominal. I'm 5'7 150

    Here is my workout schedule for the week. I just made a thread and got a lot of helpful information. I put this together.

    Monday


    Chest/Back


    Push ups - 3 sets until fail
    Incline flys - 3 sets 10 reps. (35 or 40lbs in each hand)
    Decline dumbbell press - 3 sets 10 reps

    Barbell bent over row - 3 sets 10 reps
    Shrugs - 3 sets 10 reps
    Seated cable row - 3 sets 10 reps

    Tuesday


    Push/legs


    Full squats 3 sets 10 reps (Heavy)
    Deadlifts - 3 sets 10 reps
    Leg press 3 sets 10 reps
    Good mornings - 3 sets 10 reps
    Seated calf raises

    About 2 different bicep exercises...

    Wednesday


    Upper Vertical

    Pull/Lats


    Pull ups 3 sets to fail
    Lat pull downs - 3 sets 10 reps
    Side lat raises. (holding a 25lb weight)

    Push/shoulder


    Dumbbell press - 3 sets 10 reps
    Standing barbell press - 3 sets 10 reps
    Abs

    Thursday


    HIIT cardio, no longer than 20mins
    Abs

    Friday


    Chest/Triceps


    Push ups - 3 sets to fail
    Incline flys - 3 sets to 10 reps
    Decline dumbell press 3 sets to 10 reps

    About three different tricep exercises.

    Saturday


    HIIT cardio, no more than 20mins.
    Abs

    Sunday OFF


    What do you think? Personally, i don't think I'm over killing chest, since I'm doing push ups...

    But, with this routine can i expect my chest to still grow? I do want people to notice i workout, etc...I want to get lean and have nice abs. I know this will help push ups...

    Not to rag on him, but I thought the same thing in reference to whether he was trying to join the seals. I know when I was prepping for SFAS, the routine looked nothing like that. Granted SEAL school is probably....in fact it is, you would surely need a more intense training routine than that.

    I wanted to be a SEAL and trained for a long while. My childhood friend joined and went through BUD/S. I found out I have a color deficiency, basically being halfassed colorblind which prevents me from almost any job in the SOF community. But anyways, based on...every single thing I know about BUD/S, that is absolutely not what you should be doing to train for it.

    2x agree with you there. When I was prepping for SFAS, in the packet they gave me, there was routine in there for me to use. If he is in fact trying to be a SEAL, they may do the same thing and provide a routine. I used the one they gave me, along with some crossfit training as well. I know I had a LOT of swimming, you don't know your endurance level, till you do some swimming....total body workout. I know for SEAL, you gonna need tons of pushup, pullups, and running. He should watch the BUDS series they sometimes show on the Military channel.

    If you wanna go into sof you should be in the gym maybe once or twice a week. Work on pushups, pullups core strength, rope climbing, swimming, medium to long distance running and above all else, cross country rucking.

    You can find a preparatory SFAS training workong on the sfas selection website.

    Who do you think I"m a rep for?! LOL

    The process is just in it's infancy. I've met with a recruiter a couple times and am going to get my packet rolling after the new year.

    Dont let yourself by bound by numbers. Just do enough pushups, bodyweight squats, pullups etc etc to where you cant do one more at the end of the day. And run as fast and long as you can, no matter what you do, it wont be enough to be "ready."

    That's the plan as of now. I will also be applying to the Marine Corps, but I think the job prospects within the two services leave me leaning toward the Army.

    This is true, because you won't know how far you have to run, or how many push ups or pull ups you need to do. All they say is go, and then they stop when THEY get tired or feel you have had enough. I remember during SFAS when it was a run or ruck day, they never told us how far to run to march, they just said go, and off we went. For the PT test, we never heard them count our reps or called our times for the run. The idea is to keep the limit unknown so you would not measure yourself. They figure if you knew how far you had to go or how many reps you need, you would pace yourself and would not give your all (best) from start to finish. But, I think the furthest we ran was about 10 miles, and our last road march was about 30 miles. One thing I can say, you need to be able to at least run at a 7 min mile pace.

    I remember hearing about that. Some guys I've talked to say the instructors are calm and quiet almost all the time and like you said, never count reps, time or let guys know when the evolution will be over. Kind of like "We aren't going to moto you just to see how moto you really are" type of thing I guess.

    When you went through did you have to do the STAR? What was that like? Did you make it to Q?

    I got nothing against crossfit
    In fact I wish there was a gym near me.
    Even crossfit endurance, though, doesn't seem to be suited for the type of endurance that buds or sfas would require.

    For some reason I thought you hated crossfit...hmm must have mixed you up with someone else on here.

    Mixing the main crossfit page with crossfit endurance page is about as best your gonna get. This is coming straight from Seal's, Recon Corpsman, Recon Marines, EOD, and Navy Divers and an AF PJ.

    Well I'd say go Marines! Of course I'm a bit biased on that as well.
