Navy SEAL Fitness Test Breakdown
« on: February 22, 2012, 09:13:11 PM »
Just in case anyone wanted to be a SEAL:

Swim 500 Yards

Maximum time allowed is 12 minutes, 30 seconds but to be competitive, you should swim the distance in at least 8 to 9 minutes, utilizing only the Combat Swimmer Stroke, sidestroke, or breast stroke.

Push-ups

Minimum number is 42 in 2 minutes, but you should shoot for at least 100 for an average score. Do not pace yourself. Push as many push-ups out as fast as you can, but do not neglect proper form or the SEAL instructor will not count them. (Rest 2 minutes, then move on to the next exercise.)

Sit-ups

Minimum number is 52 in 2 minutes, but you should strive for at least 100 in 2 minutes for an average score. PACE yourself! (Rest 2 minutes.)

Pull-ups

The minimum is eight pull-ups with no time limit, but you cannot touch the ground or let go of the bar. You should be able to do 15 to 20 to be competitive.  (Rest 10 minutes).

1.5-mile run

Wearing boots and pants, the maximum time allowed for this one is 11 minutes, 30 seconds, but you should be able to cover the distance in 9 to 10 minutes to be competitive. Pace yourself: do not start off too fast on the first lap.

It helps that they pretty much are bat shit crazy too. I mean really, if you see a telephone pole sitting in the sand do you get an overwhelming urge to pick it up and run down the beach with it, lifting it over your head and swapping shoulders? ~o) Not to mention crawling into a hostal area, undetected, while sleep deprived, after swimming underwater a few miles, running more miles, and killing ANYTHING that sees you or gets in your way.

Don't get me wrong I respect the hell out of them, but to do what they do requires a certain "personality" that is not found in too many people in this world. Of course that has been said about submariners too; though, I don't see it. It's perfectly normal to spend three months with the same 130 guys in a 300+ foot long steel tube, several hundred feet under water, with no sun, knowing that if there is a fire or flooding there is no place to escape/run/swim to and that you better stop it yourself or die. Like I said perfectly normal. ~o)

I'm probably late with this show and I'm sure some of you have seen it but for those that haven't Surviving the Cut on Discovery shows some of this training and that of other elite units of the military.

Sure the physical component is brutal but the mental is just awful. Special Forces Combat Diver especially.

I have the utmost respect for these individuals.
