Default Navy Seal Training - Military Fitness Exercises

Navy Seal training is considered to be one of the most rigorous periods of time a young man can face. Navy Seals are expected to be able to withstand a tremendous amount of physical strain, be able to perform day in and day out in combat conditions, to feel at home on sea and land, not to mention have top notch weapon training and discipline.

In this article I want to focus on the kind of physical training Navy Seals need to go through. Apart from being able to swim fast over long distances, they also go through a lot of difficult and exerting workout phases on land.

The first thing you as a civilian need to understand is that military fitness is no where close to gym fitness and training programs you may know which are focused on fat loss or muscle building. Civilian training plans are mainly for looking better, getting flat abs, or shedding some fat. For a soldier, this is hardly important. In combat, with bullets flying close by, and an enemy pressing in, you need to be able to count on your body to perform at all times. Looking good is just a nice side effect.
