Navy Seals are lean and mean… meaning, they are no nonsense!
They train hard to condition their bodies to be in the absolute best shape of their kind! The Navy Seals focus on training muscles to failure. This can be a challenge at any level of fitness not just the elite.
This is the 2nd week of the Navy Seal Inspired Boot Camp. If you are just joining in now, I suggest you check out WEEK ONE and get comfortable with the exercises and style of the workout before jumping into the second phase of the program. The format will remain the same, but the exercises will change slightly to offer a variety of movements, more intensity, and the muscle fatigue factor doing it the Navy Seals way!
Here are some motivational tips to keep you inspired and striving for more.
- Record your workouts (reps/ exercise) to see if you have improved
- Take before and after photos to reassess how you look & feel
- Include a healthy diet that is balanced with ‘clean’ foods
- Hydrate!!! This will keep your body working properly
- Don’t think about it, just do it the best way you can!
- Strive for the most you can do physically and then some!
- Most importantly, don’t give up! It’s easier to just stop or quite, but what does that really do for you? Nothing but make you feel unaccomplished!
So if you’re ready for the kind of workout that will make you the best of your best… then get ready for the push and don’t stop until you literally can’t spare another rep!
The goal of this Navy Seals Boot Camp is to get functionally fit not necessarily lean and sexy. However, the residual effects of the program will accomplish this as well. You will be stronger, more balanced and in incredible shape to meet your goals. This is a simulated Navy Seals plan, not an official one used by the military.
Perform this Boot Camp Strength Workout 4-5 days a week and incorporate cardio 5-6 of those days. On the days you do not perform the strength workout, perform a longer cardio session.
Be sure to take time stretching post workout!
NOTE: These workouts are designed for long distance muscle endurance training. By performing high repetition workouts, muscle fatigue will gradually take longer to achieve. Do the best you can by fatiguing the muscle to failure.’
Check out the video to see how these exercises are performed.
Along with a strength training routine, consider incorporating regular cardio sessions to really similar a true Navy Seals routine. Swimming, biking, and strength training will condition your body well, however, running is what the Seals do most. Running prepares the legs for the rigors of their ‘true’ BUD/S program, especially when done in boots! Now I’m not suggesting you go to that extreme… but I highly suggest incorporating some type of regular and rigorous cardio into your daily workouts.
It’s difficult to recommend how many miles to run and at what pace since everyone is at a different fitness level. Since this is the 2nd week of the boot camp, try to pick up your speed and miles from last weeks sessions. Do what you can always, but push yourself beyond what you usually would, safely!
Enjoy training to be your best. Have fun with it and who knows… you may excel at this type of training and really like it!
