Train like a SEAL

No, not the kind that goes, “Arf, arf!” But if training like a Spartan wasn’t for you. Consider the U.S. Navy SEAL workout. Looks pretty tough, here are the requirements. Via Julie’s Health Club:

The top SEALs can meet the "competitive" requirements.

  • 500 yd. swim – Standard: 12 minutes, 30 seconds. Competitive: 10 minutes
  • Push-ups – Standard: 42 in two minutes. Competitive: 80 in two minutes
  • Sit-ups - Standard: 50 in two minutes. Competitive: 80 in two minutes
  • Pull-ups – Standard: 6. Competitive: 11 (no time limits)
  • 1.5 mile run – Standard: 11 minutes. Competitive: 10 minutes

The swimming looks tough. I’m not much of a swimmer—not like 8 Olympic gold medal-winning champion Michael Phelps! Now, if you’re a horrible waterman like me, check out these swimming tips from That’sFit.
