BUD/S- Navy SEALs

Just curious if there is anyone who's been through BUD/S or is about to go through it. What were your opinions on it and what are you doing or did to prepare yourself for it.

I'm about to go through BUD/S in about 9 months and have already been preparing and training (hard) for it for the past 8 months.

Good luck. Heard the most common injury is stress fractures. Maybe you can take some kind of supplement to strengthen your bones and joints. Just a thought.

Yeah thanks guys. I'll look into the supplements. My training schedule has been ridiculous. I need to get in the best shape possible so I am prepared for the Hell im going to go through for those months.

From what i have seen, i would get used to staying up 48 hours at a time and working out the whole time. I would also run about 20 miles a day in boots freezing your ass off.

Ask around and see if you can find someone who works on the Navy base in CT. On most navy bases I've been on, they had a group of seals that would hold PT sessions in the morning once in a while. Go see if you can keep up with them and ask what you should be training.

Good luck man.

I wanted to do the special ops thing in the AF (combat controller). Tried to cross-train into it but found out my vision is too bad. You have to have near 20/20, and mine isn't anywhere near that.

Yeah I'm going to start talking with a Navy Seal Motivator which is basically what you were talkin about bubba. Yeah I have a really good work out program that I'm doing right now. And I have excellent vision. I can read every letter on the eye chart.

While you can try to get your body in tip top shape, there is nothing you can do, on your own, to condition your mind to not quit. No matter what physical shape your body is in, they will break you down. The question is, can you get throught the mindfuck and keep going. Also, even if you were rambo, it wouldn't mean shit if your squad where all private pyles. Meaning while it is certainly a solo act whne trying to amke it through, you cannot discount the importance of your mental stability to deal with those seamen that are not upto a higher standard.

My experience in sniper school can only add this. Remember it will end. Go as far as you can and keep going. You have to convince your mind to keep going, anyway possible.

Oh wow great post sniper. How long have you been in for and what branch? All I know is I can prepare myself as much as possible anad brace myself for the 24/7 mind games they are going to play on me hoping I will quit. Like you said I just gotta keep going take it day by day and know that its almost over.
