I have long had a fascination with SEALs, maybe just because of their over glamourized image, I don't really know.
In my highschool days I was a moderately successful distance runner. However, in the last 4-5 years, I have been bitten by the bodybuilding bug, and been obsessed with becoming bigger and stronger.
Now, at 230lbs, I'm pretty strong, but I am a crappy runner. I stil sometimes have a fantasy of becoming a Navy SEAL, but I am not 100% sure what it truly takes, nor am I 100% commited to the notion yet... since I don't really know what it requires.
I realize I'd probably never be a "bodybuilder" in the SEALs, but I'd at least like to hang on to as much muscle as possible. Muscle is always cool, right?
So I have 2 questions.... for anyone qualified to answer:
1) What is the max realistic lean weight you can be as a SEAL? 210lbs? 180lbs? and would it be possible to be "strong" anymore?
2) WHAT TRAINING PROGRAM WOULD IT REALLY take.... to FULLY prepare yourself for BUDs training? I mean a training program so fully complete, that you would be in the top 10% of your class physically?
3) Would training like a MMA athlete, possibly with Waterbury's new system be ideal?
4) What else, besides the physical preparation.... should I start doing to strengthen myself mentally?
Thanks guys, any other genuine advice or insight is welcome.
