Sounds like a good work out set up. Just get prepared to face the biggest challenge of your life. Any sort of special operations training is going to push you way past what you think your limits are. You should definetely work on staying positive (sounds cheesy) and constantly challenging yourself to go farther then your body wants you to. Good luck with it.

Hey bud, I was in Army spec-ops for years and I can honestly tell you that only about half of what you have listed will help with getting you ready for SEAL training. You should scratch all the basketball stuff, and probably the martial arts stuff as well. Not that you should quit, just saying that it won't help you that much.

If you hang around this site for awhile and prove that you're serious, I can email you a fitness training program that is used by the Special Forces to get their trainees prepared for the SF Q course.

Essentially, before you even step foot near a SEAL training facility you need to be able to do about 100 pushups in 2 minutes, 100 situps in two minutes, be able to run 2 miles in under 12 minutes, and be able to keep a 8 minute mile pace for distances as long as 7-10 miles. Oh, and be sure you can do about 30-50 pullups straight, or at least be able to continuously do pullups for 60 seconds straight without dropping from the bar. Road marching with ruck-sacks weighing in excess of 100lbs for distances as long as 15-20 miles is also standard.

Again, if you're serious stick around and keep in touch with me. I'll help out any way I can.

Have you contracted yet? It is one thing to be training to be a SEAL, it is completely different to be waiting to be a SEAL. I have 2 buddies who are in the teams and from what I have heard them say, you better be a physically perfect human without the ability to quit to even entertain the thought of BUDs training. Good luck

I heartily accept the motto, "That government is best which governs least"; and I should like to see it acted up to more rapidly and systematically.
