Description

Navy SEALs require an extraordinarily high level muscular strength, flexibility and cardiovascular fitness to carry out assigned missions. With over 220 exercises, 90+ movies and 20 calculators and hundreds of pages of reference material, Navy SEAL Fitness helps you to train like a Navy SEAL.

To train for these physically demanding tasks, the Navy created The Navy SEAL Physical Fitness Guide. The authors of this comprehensive guide, physicians and physiologists, were chosen because of their special qualifications in the area of physical fitness and their knowledge of the SEAL community. Their expertise ensured the guide was written with a goal of expanding the individual Navy SEAL's knowledge of attaining and retaining a high level of fitness.

Because SEALs train for mission related performance, the objective for every workout is elite fitness, validated by the ability to perform every task at the level necessary to accomplish any mission – no matter what. What does that mean? It means that training must be comprised of broad and inclusive, constantly varied functional movements that are performed at high intensity in order to prepare for the unknown.

The Navy SEALS are an elite branch of the U.S. Special Forces whose reputation for outstanding physical fitness is unparalleled. Now everybody that wants to improve his or her health, strength and endurance can take advantage of this information.

Ratings and Reviews

Really nice format

I remember perusing this title about four years ago as a scanned PDF file I bought off the Internet, printing it was a monstrous task, the finished book was probably four to six inches thick! I killed a forest that day :( I wish I had waited for the iPhone version. This is so much easier to read and is pleasant to go through quickly now. The info is still relevant to develop a great conditioning program. I hope they have other books, I really like this reader. Thanks!

I have been using the hardcopy version of this book for two years as the base for my physical fitness training. As a firefighter I need to be in top physical condition to meet the demands of the job. This is an excellent publication for that purpose. I would recommend it for users at any level of physical fitness.

Incredible

This is the most in-depth workout/fitness guide I have ever read. Could not believe the depth of detail. Too bad I can only rate 5 stars.
