To become a U.S. Navy Seal you have to do the following:
500 meter swim using breast stroke or a modified freestyle (called Combat sidestroke) in 12:30, competitive time of under 10:30
42 push-ups in two minutes, competitive count of at least 79
50 sit-ups in two minutes, competitive count of at least 79
6 consecutive dead hang pull-ups, competitive count of at least 11
1.5 mile run in “boots and trousers”in under 11:30, competitive time of under 10:20
I don't want to start this until about April when the weather breaks up here.
The objective is to improve your own score. Around the first of April we post our base line and sometime in June we call it quits and post our final gains.
I think it would be fun if we post our planned method of training and how we adapt and bounce ideas off of each other. We can use between now and to set up thoughts on the challenge.
You just want to see me do the pull ups.
easy breezy- but I`m not putting on boots
I'm in, but couple clarifications - no running in combat boots, I ain't buying them. Does this all happen on the same day / consecutively, or what ?
"competitive count" - means to have a shot you actually need 79 pushups in 2 min, or you need to get them done in 79 sec?
Let's say first week of April till June 30, you can spread the test out over 24 hrs max. That actually fits my own fitness goals really well. Nice post vick!
I turn 55 in June. For me to qualify is one hell of a birthday present. It is the 6 chin ups that scare me.
