Membership in the Navy Special Warfare (NSW) community requires an extraordinarily high level of total body physical fitness. A combination of muscular strength, flexibility and cardiovascular fitness is essential to carry out assigned missions.
To train most effectively for these physically demanding tasks, SEALs and others within the NSW community need clear, concise, and authoritative guidance on physical fitness training regimens. This manual, The Navy SEAL Physical Fitness Guide, has been written to meet this need.
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 NSW and SEAL community. Their expertise ensured the guide would be written with the unique requirements of the NSW community in mind, and that our goal of expanding the individual Navy SEALs knowledge of attaining and retaining a high level of fitness would be achieved.
I, commend The Navy SEAL Physical Fitness Guide as a superb source of information. Following, the advice in this guide will enable SEALs and other members of the NSW community to prepare for the physically demanding missions to which they are assigned in the future.Download The Navy SEAL Physical Fitness Guide – Human Performance
